Everyone has that one recipe that they make for every holiday for me it's my cream cheese cornucopias. What's yours? Recipes would be great to unless it is a family secret. cream cheese cornucopias you need: canned crescent rolls flavored cream cheese butter foil Form foil into cones about 3 inches long and two fingers wide at the open end Cover foil cones in butter then wrap a single crescent roll around it. Bake according to crescent roll directions on a greased cookie sheet. Remove foil as soon as they come out of the oven! When cooled fill with cream cheese. Serve a.s.a.p.

As an appetizer, I always make stuffed mushrooms. The stuffing can vary quite a bit depending on the crowd, but the basic is: 12 very large button mushroom caps 1 pkg Boursin (cream cheese can be substituted if you can't find Boursin) 1/2 cup Bread crumbs (preferably freshly ground, and toasted, but prepackaged will work) celery 1 clove fresh minced Garlic 2 minced Shallots 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese Salt & Pepper Dash cayenne Chopped mushroom stems, as needed For additional filing options (used in any reasonable combination): Bacon & Sausage Green/Red/Yellow bell peppers jalapeno/habanero peppers Lump crab meat Please note that the amount of the ingredients will vary greatly, and you will usually end up with more filing than mushrooms. Also, if you are preparing for an event in which you are unsure of the food habits of your guests, it is very easy to make two separate batches. For example, make you base filing and divide it in two batches and add the separate ingredients. Or simply make a vegetarian/non-seafood mixture, fill half the mushrooms, then add the remaining ingredients, mix and stuff mushrooms. You should stem the mushrooms (you may have to scrape out some of the flesh too to make a pocket deep enough for the filing). The mushrooms will give off some moisture when baking, so I usually prepare the mushrooms, bake them for 5-10 minutes or so at 350, until liquid gives off, then stuff and heat through 15 minutes or so at 350 (varies on mushroom size and amount of filing). You can also top the stuffed mushrooms with some bread crumbs (panko if you have it) mixed with parsley and maybe Parmesan). Finally, you can make a tomato broth mixed with balsamic vinegar to drizzle around the mushrooms for a little more elegant presentation.

Wow I can't imagine a holiday that did not leave my house crawling with family and friends. I might actually get to eat with everyone else... how weird would that feel. Any ways thanks for sharing and no matter how you spend your holiday I hope it rocks.

I love some pecan pie but it seems not a lot of people like pecan pie. That just means more for me :]

I'm with you on the pecan pie. I make one every Christmas, the meat market close to where I live brings them in fresh every year from Georgia and call me when they come in. Thanks for posting
