Are you cooking for the holidays? I got my turkey this week. My children love their grandfathers stuffing that he made with SF French bread. He would cut a loaf of French bread, put it in an open paper bag and let it dry for the stuffing. I use his recipe too. I think it is the tang from the french bread that gives it a special flavor.
I tend to more of cooking in winter. I get out the crock pot and make soups, chili, meatballs and more to enjoy. Every year for Super Bowl Sunday I would make chili in the crock pot. My boys look forward to coming over and eating my chili. Their other favorite is Great Grandma’s Spanish coffee cake. They were never much for dessert but if I make this coffee cake they are right there to eat it.
What do you enjoy cooking?
