A week ago my sister threw a holiday open house to celebrate the season with friends and family. I happened to be in town for another family Christmas party, so I was happy to help her with the shopping and food preparation. My sisters and I have spent years bonding in the kitchen, so whenever we can get together for a little cooking, I'm in. Unfortunately, an ice storm followed by record low temperatures coincided with the party and we prepared the food as the power blinked on and off. Not many of the invited guests ventured out into the weather, but we did enjoy a nice cozy evening with 9 adults and 5 little ones between the ages of 4 years and 6 months.
I know that I promised these recipes before Christmas, but the holiday and all of it's festivities prevented me from posting as promised. So, here they are now...just in time for your New Year's Eve party.
