Holiday Tradition

This year my mom & I revamped our usual Christmas cookies recipes, for a whole new selection of delectables, inspired by the recent purchase of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, authored by the talented and eloquent creator of smittenkitchen.com. This year we undertook, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, Gooey Cinnamon Squares, Brownie Roll-Out Cookies, and Alex’s Chocolate Raspberry Rugelach. The Smitten Kitchen even took over our Christmas Day meals this year, with Perelman’s genius New York Breakfast Casserole (the most perfect combination of bagel, cream cheese, onion, tomatoes and eggs you could ever imagine) and Bloody Mary’s for breakfast, and Sweet Peas and Shell Alfredo for a decadent Christmas dinner. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, filled with traditions both new and old!
