The Never Ending Christmas Recipe

Celebrating the holidays starts at home. And not only there, but it also starts in the mind and hearts of those who want to continue yearly traditions for sentimental reasons. Xmas recipes, or Christmas recipes, are a great way to continue yearly traditions within your own family.

In my family, we've taken recipes going back to our great, great grandparents and choose one every year to create and then to add something else to it. This way, we honor the tradition set by our fore parents and add our own element of personality to it as well. The best way to look at it is that you're creating something bigger than yourself.

Take last years rum pie pudding. My brother and I took elements from a Christmas over 40 years ago and created a pudding out of it.Needless to say, it was a hit with everyone at the table, but we got asked why pudding? Why not pudding was our answer! I can't think of someone who doesn't like pudding, i mean come on now.

But that's the element of added personality. And you can do it with almost any recipe. Just add that one extra spice or twist to it and make it your own. Let's take a kids treat, reindeer antlers. What you're going to want to do is take a candy cane and wrap licorice strings around the base of the cane near the loop and tie a knot. That could be the end all, be all the treat, but take it one step further. Dip the candy cane in melted chocolate and then freeze the candy cane.

Take the candy cane out of the freezer and then tie on the licorice. Instant classic!

So in the end, just take something old as a recipe in your family, and turn it into something new by adding your own personality to it. It's fun and it will allow your own legacy to continue on in the Christmas years to come! Article Source:
