What specialties do you all make during the holidays?


Thanksgiving...besides the normal Thanksgiving dinner, I make a candied yam casserole (no marshmellows...but an oatmeal cookie-like topping).

Christmas Eve...I like to make seafood newburg. I don't always make it. But I will probably make it this year and bring it to church for the fellowship time after the candlelight service.

Throughout the holidays...my family makes a Latvian appetizer called speka rausis. The literal translation is "bacon buns". Speka rausi is the very, very old name given to these little crescent rolls. The newer generation calls them Perogies (same as the polish). But they're slightly sweet rolls filled with diced bacon and onion. They are delish! My great grandmother brought the recipe over from Latvia at the turn of the last century.

We don't really have any set food traditions yet, but I do make something with pumpkin every yr. Last yr I made pumpkin bread and it was a big hit, so I will probably make it again this yr too.

That sounds delish!!!

We don't have any really. DH cooks turkey on Thanksgiving but that's about it.

Sweet potato pie for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Other than that, no special foods.
