    Not a cook! That is left to anyone in the family that volunteers. Sounds like you and your family had a great time. The food looked fabulous and healthy. Happy Holidays!

    I cooked Christmas breakfast for my parents and god daughter. My dad loves an egg fried in REAL butter with a runny yolk. For the ladies I prepared egg beaters with sauteed vidalia onions, yellow and orange peppers, crumbled feta cheese and seasoned with Slap Your Mama Seasoning. Grilled turkey sausage, butter toasted sponge bread with homemade hot pepper preserves, fruit and veggie smoothie (banana, orange, boiled pear and apple sauce, fresh ginger, baby spinach, an blue berries), and cafe’ du monde coffee! Not a huge cook but it was fun.

    Thank you for inviting us in at Christmas! We love the Ross family. Each of you are such special people that inspire, teach,entertain and I always leave with a smile. I really mean it. Just the other day I had the opportunity to read an article where Rhonda was interviewed in her home in NYC and I found her to be so inspiring and talk about making the world a better place you all walk the talk. Oh at my house we do seafood on Christmas Eve Broiled Stuffed Lobster, Fried Shrimp( Gamberi Fritto) Stuffed Calamari,Baccala Salad.

    Gumbo…I’m a military spouse and rarely plan to go home(New Orleans or Oklahoma City-hubby’s home) if I am not close enough to drive. I may get stuck in some airport due to weather. I started my own tradition: a huge breakfast in the morning and gumbo for dinner.

    Hi Tracey! I am a military spouse living in Germany so Christmas is all about me and my babies. My eldest spent Christmas with his paternal family, so of course there was a hole in my holiday celebrating heart. But all-in-all we had a fabulous time! On Christmas Eve, we made snow man pizzas (extra spicy with jalapeno eyes and a sriracha smile!). And I made homemade bourbon pecan mini pies for santa claus. On christmas morning I made homemade waffles dyed green like christmas trees with bacon trunks. i topped with mini m&ms and pecans and dusted confectioner’s sugar for snow. For christmas dinner, i went kinda simple (for me) I made peach glazed ham, mac n cheese with bacon topping, bahamian rice n peas, collard greens and hamhocks, sweet potato casserole and buttermilk cornbread. i went less extravagant as i had just finished up my finals only a week and some change earlier…but all my hard work paid off. i got straight As my first semester back in school after 9 years! I hope you continue to enjoy the time and your wonderful family!!

    I’m not the biggest cook, but I do make my own Jiffy cornbread stuffing, courtesy of Rachel Ray recipe! My new tradition since last year is Popeye’s fried cajun turkey. Yum!!

  • Taj

    For Christmas I kept it simple and made baked salmon with mixed peppers, macaroni pie, fried plantain, brocolli, and a salad.

    • Louis Samuel
