This is a sponsored post on holiday favorites recipes and tips from Parent magazine. I've been gathering together my ingredients for my holiday favorites recipes. My cousin and I are giving the ladies who have fixed the family Thanksgiving meal for years and years a break. Passing on the tradition to the next generation I suppose. I love it. I'm not good at a lot of things but I have been told cooking is one of them. Like my mother in law used to tell me if you can read a recipe then you can cook. I truly believe that.
I grew up in the kitchen with my Nana. Between her, my step grandma and my other older family members I have a well stocked recipe box of family favorite recipes including some holiday favorites. Though I have some go to recipes that have been passed down to me I still like to browse the internet and read magazines to find new recipes. I downloaded the tip booklet from Parent magazine that includes Great holiday recipes from Parents magazine, including appetizers, side dishes, and desserts, kid and adult-friendly versions of festive drinks, smart grocery shopping tips and a sweepstakes to win $500!
I made the boys some of the cinnamon raisin stuffed apples from the Parent magazine tip book. I had to opt out of the raisins of the cinnamon raisin stuffing because my boys don't like raisins. After fixing this recipe I think it was a good tasting recipe but I wasn't sure what the purpose of peeling the 1 inch strips around the center of the apples was for. I would think that coring and stuffing the apples would be enough, I don't know. Either way the apples were good. You can find the stuffed apples and other holiday favorites recipes in the tip book and get entered for that $500 too. The next thing I plan to make is the Snowy Sandwiches (cookie sandwiches). You can see how they are made in the video below.
NO matter what holidays you celebrate or don't celebrate everyone has to eat and I think the recipes found in Parent magazine are good picks. To think I used to occasionally pick up and read Parent magazine while I was sitting at the doctors office. I've probably missed out on some other yummy recipes. What recipes do you have on plan for the next few weeks? Whatever you have going on in the kitchen I leave you with this quote from Julia Child... Learn how to cook-- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun.
