Post Your Favorite Holiday Recipes!

Next year we can try some new ones!

Homemade Eggnog

12 large eggs
1-1/2 C white sugar
12 C milk (I use powdered milk; recipe originally calls for whole milk)
3 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

If you want to add alcohol to this recipe, it originally calls for 2 C brandy and ½ C rum

Whip eggs in blender. Add sugar gradually and beat until it dissolves. Add milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. May be refrigerated up to 24 hours before serving or stores, covered, in refrigerator for up to 6 days. Run through blender to foam before serving.

Swedish Fruit Soup

1-3/4 C mixed dried fruits (11 oz pkg)
½ C raisins
2 tsp cinnamon (or 3-4 sticks)
4 C water
1 medium orange, unpared, cut in ¼ inch slices
2-1/4 C unsweetened pineapple juice
½ C currant jelly (I usually substitute red plum jam, it’s MUCH cheaper!)
¼ C sugar
2 T quick cooking tapioca
¼ tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in crock pot and simmer for about 2-3 hours.

If you want to cook on stove top, combine mixed dried fruits, raisins, cinnamon and water. Bring to boil, then simmer uncovered until fruits are tender, about 30 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; bring to boil. Cover and cook over low heat 15 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.

This can be served hot or chilled, but I have only ever served it hot. And even though it SOUNDS unappetizing, I've coaxed a lot of people into trying it and wound up giving them the recipe. LOL

Here are several of my favorite recipes I make every year during the holidays

Pumpkin Fluff Dip
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup milk
1 cup FF cool whip
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 package SF FF instant vanilla pudding mix

Mix together pumpkin, spice and milk until well blended. Add pudding mix and beat by hand 2 minutes. Fold in cool whip. Refrigerate.
-serve with gingerbread or gingersnap cookies. (makes enough for 12-20 people)

In my family, we do a lot of lasagnas, pastas, salads, etc on Christmas (because we do ham and turkey on thanksgiving) so this is my favorite alfredo sauce recipe

Alfredo Sauce Recipe-Melt ½ cup of butter in pan
-Add 2 tsp of Garlic Powder
-Take 1 whole package of cream cheese and cut into cubes
-Add cream cheese to pot and let melt
-Add a tiny pinch of nutmeg
-The add 2 cups of milk….SLOWLY (add a little bit at a time- Wisk into the pot until it combines with the cream cheese until it becomes smooth again- repeat until you’ve added all two cups of milk to mixture.)
-The add 6-8oz of Parmesan Cheese- this will thicken it quickly
-Cook on Medium heat until it reaches the consistency you like
-Add Salt & Pepper to taste

Stir Sauce continually so that it does not burn on the bottom!
