Favorite holiday foods! for [personal profile] sid

Oh, there are so many! I adore Fast 'n Fancy Macaroons (coconut flakes, sweetened condensed milk, and a touch of vanilla extract). I love these to such an extent that I've started making them for other special occasions throughout the year, much to the surprise (and delight) of my family.

I also love Heavenly Salad (I think it might also be called Ambrosia): pineapple and oranges with coconut and sour cream. Another quick and easy dish that I can make, no problem!

In terms of more food-type food, I really like stuffing, especially when it's been cooked in the turkey. I don't like it with a lot of extra stuff in it, mostly just bread, celery, and seasonings, IIRC. Always have to get my family cookbook out to make it, but I love it, particularly the crispy bits that were falling out of the turkey when it was cooking :D

Favorite appetizer has to be my mom's crab dip. Crab meat and cream cheese all blended together. Then she shapes it into seasonally appropriate designs - often a candy cane with the cocktail sauce for the red stripes. When we had a cookout for my brother's high school graduation, she made a baseball with cocktail sauce stitching.

And while this is a drink, not a food, I always look forward to my mother's wassail on Christmas Eve. It's delicious and warming and just puts me in the holiday spirit!!
