Sounds yummy, Debby. I used to love to bake cookies with my niece and nephews, and now I get to bake with their kids. I think my gingerbread men cookies are the most fun and the kids do seem to enjoy making them almost as much as eating them. :)

Looks like a great cookbook, Cassandra. Reader Appreciation Week is such a great idea. :)

Cassandra said...

We have 2 favorites. One is homemade noodles which is kinda like dumplings but cut into strip My dad used to make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas, and now I do the same since hes gone.(1 egg 1 cup flour and a lil chicken broth to make the dough, roll out cut into 2 inch long strips and drop into boiling chicken broth. Of course you can double triple quad this recipe :D I normall do around 4 eggs, 4 cups flour)

And our second is Monkey Bread. ( I found some people call it pull apart bread) Its Christmas morning breakfast. Every year kids halp put it together Christmas Eve night, and I pop it in the oven while they open gifts :)

Oh yum! I love homemade noodles and monkey bread is crazy delicious! I may have to make a Christmasy version of the bread, because sounds like it would be delish with Christmas Morning tea.

Thanks for the giveaway. My thanks also go to the armed services on this their special day. I appreciate all the sacrifices they have made for our country.

Cassandra said...

Hi Joye! Thank you for stopping by and entering my contest. I also have great appreciation for all our Vets here in America and those in Canada and Britain as well. Many of the men in my family on both sides have fought in wars. I am forever thankful they made it back home safe. ((hugs))

One of my favorite Holiday Dishes is Pumpkin Pie. I remember my grandmother baking pies and they always made the farmhouse smell so good. I eat it year round and don't wait till Holiday time. I love to bake; not so much cook but baking is fun and relaxing.

Cassandra said...

Hi Jackie,
Pie is my weakness. I don't think I've met a pie I didn't love. :) I think the thing I enjoy most about baking is it brings back all these feel good memories from childhood, and I get nostalgic. So many fond moments with family and friends. Thanks for coming by to share your favorite dish with me.

I love cookbooks. Thank you for the giveaway.

My favorite holiday dish was always my mom's pumpkin bread. I had the recipe she used but I haven't tried to make it since she passed away 2 years ago.

I thought I had replied...this is the book I so want to win. I LOVE Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks. They are some of the best out there. I love doing crafts especially for Christmas Time. Homemade gifts just mean so much more to me, KWIM.

pecan pie, strawberry candy, and sugar cookies with icing. Still remember making them with my mom when I was little and still make them for my boys and sometimes with them.
