My mom, sister, and I have traditionally made this recipe together since we were young. It has been one of our favorite Christmas treats and we still get together and make it to this day. Now it is one of our kids favorite treats.

This cake is really popular with my family because it is cool and light...and not at all "rich". It' is great with a glass of cold milk! A real hit, every time I have ever taken this to any kind of pot luck or covered dish meal...I always take home an empty pan afterward! It is easy to make and you can make it ahead of time.

This is one of the best cakes I have ever eaten. If you like lemon, you will love this cake and get rave reviews when severing it. I promise.
This is a recipe that my Aunt Bernice Hutchison always brought to holiday family gatherings. It's an old- fashioned treat, and it's fun to see the look on people's faces when you tell them it's made from a potato!

This rice pudding is very special to Haitian culture every Christmas Eve.
My two grown sons don't think it is Christmas, unless we have these. And they don't even like dates!! But they love these. Eight years ago, I was very ill and did not do much for Christmas, but I did manage to get these made.

I've made these cookies every Christmas for 40 years. I don't make them during the rest of the year because I find them just too irresistable.

These were from my Grandmother's recipe and were my father's favorite cookies. It just wasn't Christmas until we had made a big batch of these delicious cookies. They are so good you can give them as gifts.

When I was a young girl, my dad would make hand cranked ice cream. While he cranked it, mom would tell my brothers and I stories of the "good ole days"! Now, with both mom and dad in Heaven, this brings back very special memories that I can tell my kids and grandkids.
This is such an easy recipe and the soft center remindes me of chocolate pudding. It is so small I feel I can afford the calories!
I remember as a child going to her mother's, Grandmother Rosie, where there always was a plate of these cookies in the center of the kitchen table inviting everyone to sample. Grandmother Lillie, my father's mother, made these as well. She kept them in a big round tin box in the spare bedroom. When she brought them out they were cold, but still so delicious.
This pie is sugar free and almost fat-free, and has a great lemonade taste. You can use Sugar Free Tang instead if you want the "Dreamsicle" taste.
The smiles on people's faces and their comments when they bite into one of my truffles!
This is just a good recipe for a large family gathering. It is very good warm with whipped cream, but tastes just as good the next day as a leftover.
The is the perfect low-fat, low-calorie for you to enjoy this holiday season -- without the guilt!
Everyone likes them and they are so quick to make. I have more time for what really matters because of quick recipes such as this.

I always made these with my girls as they are so simple and easy for children to help with. My girls are now 31 and 28 and still request them every Christmas. Now, my 10 year old granddaughter makes them with me.
Like the saying...you always have room for Jello and this is so nice no matter how much turkey you have eaten. My 5 kids always ask for this and now are making this for themselves to share.
This is a great easy-to-do project for little hands and busy moms! I got this idea one day when thinking of a fast and easy Christmas cookie project for my 7 year old. She loves making these cookies.
Every year at Christmas time, my sisters and I would get together and make all kinds of cookies for Christmas day. It was a very special time for all of us growing up.
Christmas was very special at our house when I was a child and baking was one of our favorite family activities. Dad would mix the dough, the kids would form the cookie on the baking sheet, and mom would watch the oven. Then, we would sit down and enjoy the wonderful creations! What a fun memory we all have of this special time of year.
