Holiday Recipes

Holiday Recipes from old-fashion-recipe kitchen includes fruit cake recipes, holiday punch recipes and appetizer dips.

It is that special time of year. Whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, or another Holiday, your thoughts often go back to the nostalgia of Old Fashioned Recipes of your childhood.

We embrace warm memories of Mama, Grandma, Aunt Sue, (yes, Uncle Ben, too) hustling to cook their special dishes to perfection. They had to prepare lots of food, such as fruit cakes and cured hams ahead of time.

Traditional holiday meals came together just right. But, many of the good old recipes were not written down, they were passed by word of mouth from generation to generation.

A few were written down on scraps of paper, others were published in magazines or cookbooks. And some, sad to say, were lost.

The recipes we bring you in this category are recipes our family have used in cherished family celebrations, unless otherwise noted.

To kick off the season we suggest you start with the simple, easy to make, Unbaked Cookie Recipe, for two reasons.

First, it can be made, packaged and shipped in time to reach the recipient for the holidays. Very important.

Second, it can be made by young and old, without spending hours in the kitchen. That leaves time for shopping and decorating your home.

More great holiday recipes are at our Jello Recipes with photos.
