Family Holiday Traditions and Recipes You Do Not Want to Miss

The holiday season is upon us! Family holiday customs and recipes are in the heart of what this year is all about to households throughout the world. Now I wish to spend some opportunity to reflect AND inspire you with ideas and recipes that you wish to include to your loved ones this holiday season.

Listed below are 6 family Customs we Would Love to do That time of year:

  • Intentional gratitudeWe strive to create gratitude a principal focus beginning in November. It's an excellent time to concentrate on thankfulness. We do so with interesting activities with the children like going to a scavenger hunt and by reflecting on interacting together with the children as we begin our day.
  • Committing to other people: Donations and locating a family in need seems so nice and it versions and reminds our children this year is particularly about-loving others.
  • The nostalgia and memories about what's familiar is a gorgeous tradition we anticipate year after year.
  • The slowing down and being relaxed, grateful and current together with all the ones that we love.
  • Creating Gingerbread homes as a household: I've been making these since I can remember with my loved ones and my children love the exact same fun. We like the outing of moving and selecting the candy then a day of becoming creative whilst nibbling our masterpieces.
  • Sight viewing lights: We adore driving around town at the Winter listening to our favourite songs when looking at all of the gorgeous lights voting on what ones we like best.

Baked Chicken Breast with stuffing

The convenience of boneless, serving-size-ready breast meat with the added bonus of stuffing makes this an easy replacement for a roast chicken or turkey dinner.

Preheat oven to 350ºC

10-12 cups bread, cubed (use a variety of types)
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup chopped onion
1 1⁄2 cups chopped celery, stalks and leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup chopped mushrooms (optional)
1/2 cup cooked sausage or giblets, chopped (optional)
chicken broth (optional)

1. Make stuffing:  In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat melt the butter, then sauté the onion and celery (and mushroom, if using) until the onion is soft, stirring occasionally. Stir in the salt, pepper, and sage and cook for an additional 3 minutes.

Place the bread cubes into a large, deep bowl.

Pour 1/4 cup of the butter/celery mixture over the cubes and toss well, then repeat steps until all of the butter mixture is used.  Toss the cubes thoroughly to coat. (Adapted from Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book, circa 1950)


2. Place prepared stuffing into greased, covered ceramic dish.  Compress gently to about the density you'd expect of...
