In this episode, Anna and I share some beloved holiday food traditions. Food and family is at the heart of what we love to discuss and on today’s episode we share our beloved holiday food traditions.
Anna was raised in Alaska and her food traditions are salmon-heavy. She ate smoked salmon dip with cream cheese, mayo, and ritz crackers growing up and even today, those flavors feel like home.
Anna’s family also ate chicken and wild rice soup which sounds incredible.
Her inlaws always have homemade hard candies with flavors of cinnamon and anise in pretty dishes around the house.
Anna is always the party MVP when she brings her spicy jellies to holiday get togethers.
Jenny recalled family rolls; in her family, her Gram made the rolls for years and now, her sister and cousin make them too.
Jenny’s aunt used to make chocolate peanut butter balls and now, it hardly seems like Christmas without them.
Jenny’s mom always made homemade Kailua (a coffee liqueur) with instant coffee. Get the recipe here! The best part is that recipe takes only an hour!
Both of us recalled the iconic jello salad – red, green, and white layers of nostalgia!
