What is your favorite food for the holidays?

    What do you like? Dessert? Main courses- which ones? Appetizers? Egg nog?
    I like anything that tastes good, and I am really not that picky.

      I am an amateur chef. I take on the resposibility to prepare the apetizers, main course and dessert for our Christmas feast, and I am happy to do so for three special reasons.

      As chef, I get to choose what will become a part of the menu and how it is prepared.

      As chef, as the cook, before everyone else, I get to taste and sample what I am preparing, to ensure that it is cooked properly and tastes good.

      As chef, even though I clean up all the pots and pans as I use them, I do not have to wash the dishes after dinner is done.

        Wow. I love people who can cook! I "experiment" more than cook.  I sometimes feel sorry for my poor husband who has to be the experimental guinea pig to try the things I make LOL! big_smile.  Yes, my husband and I have a deal. If one of us cooks, the other will clean the dishes smile.  Thanks for answering!

    Cochinillo (milk fed roasted suckling pig)

    Since moving to Spain, my holiday habits have changed a bit. Although it is not really a traditional holiday meal, it has become so with our family.

      Hmm... that is something I have never tried before. I will have to try that out. I wonder where in Knoxville, TN i can get one of those pigs?  I will check it out. Thanks for answering!

        I´m not sure where in Knoxville you can find an authentic cochinillo. You may have to import it. I first came across it in a spectacular restaurant in Segovia, Spain.


        Am I allowed to post the website of the restaurant here?

        It will give you the recipe in english and some beautiful rooms. It was originally a hunting lodge that was converted into a restaurant in the late 1800s.

          Oh, wow.  Well, I am not sure if I will be on my way to Spain anytime soon.  However making it sounds like a plan! smile I'm not sure if you are allowed to but you can email it to me through HubPages.

    New York Style Cheesecake.  It's so fattening that I would only eat it during the holidays.
