Day 9: Favorite Holiday Recipe

I actually feel kind of pressured on this topic since I have a food blog. I really wanted to actually cook a new recipe for this one but after I was sick and now Brian is sick, it didn't happen.

Fear not, for I will deliver on some recipes. Since those reading this from the blog challenge have probably not ventured into the depths of my little blog, I'll just review past recipes that I enjoy around the holiday season.

A favorite for a main dish is the Cajun Glazed Ham. Just thinking about this ham makes me crave it (and happily my parents are making it for their annual Christmas party - hooray!). It's so, so, SO good and worth the hunt for Louisiana Cane Syrup. It cannot be made with anything else. Trust me, you want this ham.

Bacon Wraps - how, I love thee so. I bring these to holiday parties and they disappear faster than you can blink. With a simple ingredient list, you can't go wrong. They are like crack.
Only with bacon and legal.

Coming from someone who hates tomatoes, I love this bruschetta. Plus it's Christmas colors, so it's festive!

Ahh, Manicotti. I've actually never had this around Christmas; however, if you had a potluck party to go to or need a gift for someone, this is a winner. I've given this to a dear friend who just had a baby before. Just assemble it and stop before baking it. Freeze it and then post a label with baking instructions on top of the dish.

Ok, that's all I got for now. Can't wait to see what everyone else posts!

Bruschetta is my favorite! I made some a few months ago with red and yellow peppers, onions and blue die for :)

i can attest to the awesomeness of her manicotti. after having said baby, it was so nice to put it in the oven and the labeled directions made it a breeze.
