Holidays in our family have always been centered around food, faith, and family. And at Thanksgiving and Christmas, football!
Holidays are about memories and especially memories that particular foods bring. Memories are a way for us to have that piece of the past to always remember and bring with us into our dishes so that the feeling can be passed on to the next generation.
We just aren’t cooking to have food on the table like any other day. If that was the case we wouldn’t worry so much about a menu and who was coming for Thanksgiving, Rosh Hashana, or Hannukah dinner. Each dish is special and brings back some memory that makes the day all the more special.
I hope these recipes bring you a little taste of your past and feelings of love for those that gave them to us.
