* whipping up some holiday cheer with new recipes!

I LOVE to cook and try out new recipes. Having a few staple recipes for the various holidays works, but who wants to make the same thing every year?

5 New Recipes I tested out this holiday season:

  1. Edamole (edamame and avocado dip)- yummy and healthy!
  2. Emeril's Prosciutto and Melon Salad with Balsamic Reduction - super easy to make
  3. Paula Dean's Blue Potatoes Au gratin - love the unique blue color and nutty taste of the blue potatoes, but without a mandolin my potatoes weren't cut evenly enough and didn't cook through all the way
  4. Martha Stewart's Classic Apple Pie - simple and delicious
  5. Gingerbread House from scratch - I didn't realize the 9 cups of flour until it was too late *learned a lesson there! My kitchen aid mixer couldn't handle the amount of dough or it's density, had to hand knead the last bit in- BIG PAIN. Do you have a good Gingerbread house recipe for me to try next??

Have a favorite new or old recipe you're excited about?? Are people always asking you for your recipe?

Give us the dish: family recipe? where did you get this recipe? how many times have you made it? any modifications or suggestions to the ingredients or instructions? Post your favs in the comments- thanks for sharing!

Happy Holidays!!
