    My favorite holiday dish is dressing. The best piece is always a corner piece that has those crunchy edges. Yum! Happy Holidays all and Carpe Diem!!

    Favorite recipe, just discovered with Quinoa!
    1 cup,cook quinoa
    1/8 cup pine nuts
    2 tsp chopped parsley
    2 cloves garlic copped
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1/8 cup raisins
    I tbsp fresh lemon juice

    Soften garlic in pan with olive oil. Add quinoa, raisins, parsley, toasted pine nuts, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Yummy main course or side dish for all! I freeze the cooked quinoa in one cup freezer bags and thaw the night below. Makes a quick meal of great protein and all those good ingredients! 1/2 cup is 300 calories.

    I love food in general! If I have to choose one as a fave holiday dish…it would be ham. A big juicy baked ham.

    • avatar Jasmine says:

      Shirice- I like the crispy part of ham and little chewy fat…totally not the healthy part to eat. Happy Holidays! CARPE DIEM

    My favorite holiday dish is Mac & Cheese. My Granny use to make it every Christmas. Since I don’t have her recipe, I’m left to create my own! I found a really good recipe on a blog – Garlic & Bacon Mac & Cheese! Hopefully it turns out as good as it looks!! I also looove my moms Tamale Pie!

      Bionca- Garlic & Bacon Mac sounds good! Do you have your grandmother’s recipe? I’ve never had tamale pie before. Happy Holidays to you and your family! CARPE DIEM

    I’ll say my favorite dish is the Traditional Cod recipe my aunts make for Christmas with the special ingredients my grandma used.

    I love the flavor and the memories it brings of the time all were together.

    It is super traditional in Mexico the Romeritos and herb that looks like Rosemary with shrimp, potatoes and mole sauce. Delicious!!!
