I love to cook. But I want to cook for a crowd, experiment with new recipes, and come up with something different and unexpected. So holiday gatherings are my love. And as the leaves turn gold and red and pumpkins appearing in every doorway, I look forward to the coming holidays.
Like most families, we have competitions on who makes the best dressing for the turkey. By far my nephew wins.
A few years ago, I
In subsequent years, wherever we gather there is always the First Time Dish on the table. We look forward to it. As a family, we cook all the standard familiar and favored foods, but we look forward to seeing what the new one will bring. Without a miss, it's been the crowd favorite, the one you want more of and on the day after the holiday the question is, "Where is that First Timer? I want more."
Have you ever done this? Have you found a recipe in a magazine or online, maybe in the back of a romance novel and tried it? What were some of them? And if you're ambitious, by all means, post the recipe. I'd love to try something new. Maybe at our holiday meal this year, it will be on our First Time menu.
Enjoy and as always, keep Reading.
