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.

Blueberry Scones - Angela's Christmas gift

These are the scones which Angela surprised me with for Christmas this morning.  They are delicious, a definite treat.  Thanks Angela!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar plus 1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen
1/2 cup blueberries (or raisins or dried currants)
1/2 cup sour cream or yoghurt
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut butter into flour mixture (mixture should resemble coarse meal), then stir in blueberries.
In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until smooth.
Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.)
Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. of sugar (optional). Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a cookie sheet (preferably lined with parchment paper), about 1 inch apart....
