Holiday Baking

Ahh, I love the holidays. The smells that fill your kitchen as you bake the delicious foods that are so pleasing to the palette. In preparation for hosting a Christmas Banquet, I baked all day yesterday! And what's on the menu? Sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting.

Some new picks from my new Taste Of Home Appetizer cookbook (see sidebar to the left) including roasted eggplant dip (see picture), fruit salsa, honey garlic glazed meatballs, and potato skins.

And then we have some favorites like fresh bread with rosemary from the garden, hummus with pita bread, and cream cheese with jalapeno jelly.

I also tried 2 kinds of rolled chicken including some with coriander pesto and another with cream cheese, garlic, and basil. With a little help from friends, we have more on the menu! I had a blast making new things and can't wait to see how they taste! Happy Christmas Eve!
