**This Contest is Now Closed (I know, I know, I said it would close Friday but I changed my mind based on the overwhelming response – I’ll announce a winner tomorrow morning!**

In honor of the fact that it is my Bosch-loving, baby sister’s birthday today (Happy Birthday, Emmers!)

and the fact that I am constantly waxing poetic about my love for my Bosch and manage to use it almost every day

and because I heart each and everyone of you and the support you give me

and because it is basically time to kickoff the marathon Holiday season

and because my husband always teases me that I would save my beloved Bosch first and foremost in a fire…

…well, in honor of all of that, I’m giving away a New Universal Plus Bosch Mixer to one of you!

Bosch, Baby

Isn’t she a beaut? You won’t believe how your roll-making, bread-making, cookie-making world will spin out of control with this machine.

To enter, leave me a comment (only one per person, please!) telling me what your favorite holiday food is (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, President’s Day…whatever holiday floats your boat).

As for me, I’d have to go with this pomegranate cheesecake or these gingerbread blondies or these holiday morning buns or this amazing 2-hour turkey. Hmm, I guess I’m having a hard time narrowing it down. Can’t wait to hear your favorites!

A winner will be announced Friday morning at 6:00 a.m. Wednesday morning at 6:00 a.m.!

May the force of the Bosch be with you.

{Pssst: This contest isn’t sponsored by Bosch or any company that sells them. It’s simply because I don’t know where I would be without my Bosch and I want one of you to have one, too!}

  4. Kristen S. says:

    I LOOOOOVE stuffing!! I would eat it every day if I could convince my husband to make it for me, but no such luck!

  5. Janet says:

    That is easy…..Cornbread dressing. My family knows how to make it!!!!!

  6. Sandy says:

    Thanksgiving feast is my favorite… Oh, narrow it down to one dish?
    How can I? Choose between my Cornbread stuffing and my green beans with bacon? My Garlic Mash potatoes and my Broccoli au gratin? Thin juicy slices of turkey breast smothered in gravy vs the cheesecake finale?
    Sorry, Just can’t pick one! I love it all!! LOL!

  7. Megan says:

    My favorite would be my grandmother’s chocolate pudding pie (definitely _not_ made from a JELLO mix.)

  8. Missy K says:

    Mmmmmm. . . definitely stuffing. Made with cornbread and sausage and chopped celery– yum!

  9. MeganB says:

    Our fave is Spicy Chicken Wat on Ethiopian Christmas. It brings back such great memories, warms your soul (and tongue) and is just delicious!

  10. Sarah says:

    Hmmmm, I’m still a relatively new cook, so I don’t have a huge list of favorites yet. But I’m enjoying finding them! I always make my Mom’s cheeseball for pretty much every holiday. I also always make Paula Deen’s Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake for Thanksgiving. It can be found here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/pumpkin-gooey-butter-cakes-recipe/index.html

  11. Phil says:

    Homemade whole wheat bread. A Thanksgiving requirement.

  12. Michelle H says:

    My favorite is my Grandma’s Ho Ho Cake. Mmmmmmm. I still can’t make it just like hers, but I’ll keep aspiring πŸ™‚

  13. Annie Jones says:

    My favorite is pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling!

  14. Ryann says:

    Homemade cranberry sauce!

  15. Stephanie says:

    I have to choose one favorite? I guess it would be lasagna for Christmas. pans and pans of lasagna…

  16. Carolyn says:

    Broccoli Rice casserole… yummy!!

  17. Kelly S. says:

    Butterscotch Pie….Yum!

  18. Sugar Cookies. The holidays just make me want to bake so sugar cookies always remind me of Christmas and of course they are delicious.

  19. Susanne Nielsen says:

    Oh, so many ways to feel the love!!! The first thought that came to mind was pecan pie. YUM! But I also adore frosted sugar cookies and fudge. Can you tell – sugar is a serious problem around here?!? LOL

  20. Jo-Ann says:

    My favorite food around the holidays is Christmas cookies. I love baking cookies and can’t wait to start this years!!

  21. Kim says:

    definitely stuffing and cranberry sauce…yum!

  22. jenny says:

    Seriously?! You’re giving one of us this mixer? Awesome! Well, I always look forward to glazed ham on Easter. Yum!

  23. Deanna says:

    Oh! You are the BEST!!! My favorite is hard to choose because of your website but I will have to go with pumpkin cake topped with homemade whipped cream.

  24. rebecca says:

    I LOVE turkey with home-made cranberry sauce!

  25. Amber says:

    Yams and stuffing for sure!!!

  26. Megan says:

    Gotta love Bosch! I love my mom’s apple pie- she makes it Dutch style with all that yummy struesel, and then she drizzles it with caramel and serves it a la mode. So good!

  27. Cathy Heckman says:

    Praline Pumpkin Pie with vanilla whipped topping!

  28. Anne says:

    Ginger molasses cookies!

  29. Johanna says:

    My mom’s mustard sauce. She doesn’t like to cook, but she can do amazing things with some vinegar and mustard powder. My husband and I now amaze his family with it each year!

  30. Jennifer H says:

    Fudge. I love it, but it is one of those things that only gets made for Christmas (and maybe that is just as well because it is oh so healthy.)

  31. Allyson says:

    Probably Pumpkin Crunch – yum!

  32. Angie says:

    Oh man I have never had a “real mixer” … I don’t know what I would do if I was the super lucky person that won this baby!! But my favorite dish?? Ummmm….a lot of people have said stuffing, so I won’t rave over my mom’s homemade stuffing that she makes from scratch – when we were kids, grinding up gizzards was the highlight of getting ready for Thanksgiving! πŸ˜‰ So, I am going to go with the little green Cornflake Wreaths with red hots that we make every Christmas along with all our cookies.

  33. Janelle Belka says:

    I absolutely love the English toffee that my family buys at Christmas time ever year. It’s amazing!

  34. Cara says:

    Too many great foods to choose from! I would say homemade rolls and pies, all types of pies!

  35. Melanie A. says:

    Oh, boy this is on my christmas list this year! My favorite holiday food would have to be a cream cheese pumpkin roll! Yum!

  36. Aaron says:

    As of last year, America’s Test Kitchen’s Pumpkin Roll.

  37. Tracey T says:

    Pick a favorite? Holiday foods are all so wonderful! The entire Thanksgiving spread as a whole is SO good. Stuffing, turkey, fudge, pumpkin pie… OK, now I’m feeling hungry πŸ™‚

  38. nikki says:

    Turkey, dressing, sweet potato and cranberry relish all on one fork. I love Thanksgiving Day, there’s something about it that makes me feel so cozy. Thanks for being so generous.

  39. Joani says:

    I love your website and I have tried a lot of your recipes with great success. I would have to say that my all time favorite is Pumpkin Pie with lots of whipped cream………..yummmm

  40. Sieglinde says:

    Well, I am going veer off the typical holiday food for Thanksgiving and Christmas and going for our Valentines Home Fondue Dinner we do every year. That is the holiday food I get SO excited about. We have a Mexican CheeseFondue Course, and a meat/chicken/seafood course in Coq Au Von Fondue, and of course the WORLD’S BEST Chocolate Fondue with lots of yummy dippers. To get into the spirit, we have lots of “rules”…i.e., if you drop you dipper into the fondue, you have to give the person on your left a kiss. SO fun and SCRUMPTIOUS!!!

  41. Larisa says:

    The beauty of holiday cooking is that you don’t have to choose just one favorite! (Because I don’t think I could…) But I do love making truffles, christmas cookies and cinnamon rolls just about as much as I love eating them…

  42. Rebecca says:

    My favorite has to be either stuffing or pecan pie. I can’t decide between the two.

  43. jody says:

    If I had to choose—it would have to be roasted turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy over the whole thing! mmmm.

  44. Nicki Wilson says:

    Turkey and stuffing! Mmmm…. I can’t wait till Thanksgiving!

  45. Jodi says:

    I love holiday foods. It is hard to choose between my favorite dressing for Thanksgiving, a Danish Pastry in the shape of a Candy Cane for Christmas, Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle for Halloween. All so good. It’s no wonder that I have to do a lot of walking during the holiday season.

  46. Kim in MD says:

    My favorite holiday food is spinach gratin. I make it every year for Christmas dinner, and I serve it with beef tenderloin with maderia gravy, mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. I begin the meal with a holiday inspired salad with dried cranberries, and serve ganache covered cherry cheesecake for dessert. Heaven on a plate! Why do I only make this meal on Christmas? πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win this Bosch mixer, Melanie!

  47. such a tough question! i think that my favorite holiday food is pumpkin dessert (can’t decide which i like best because i generally love them all)

  48. Darcy says:

    I would have to say Thanksgiving stuffing!

  49. Joan says:

    It’s hard to choose just one. I think it would have to be Green Bean Wrap Ups, all full of garlicky, buttery goodness.

  50. Stephanie says:

    Ooooh…that’s a tough call. I would have to say my mom’s pumpkin cheesecake. Love it. πŸ™‚
    Thanks!

  51. Natalie says:

    My mom’s pecan cinnamon rolls. They are incredible. Every morning during the week of Christmas we eat several with a mug of hot chocolate in front of the fire. Best moments…

  52. I could not live without my parmesan creamed corn casserole at Thanksgiving, but I make it for dinner all the time even when it’s not Thanksgiving.

  53. Kari says:

    We make Gyoza (the Japanese form of potstickers) each Christmas Eve. I LOVE THEM.

  54. RuthE says:

    Favorite holiday food – has to be apple cranberry stuffing! Delicious! and I look forward to it every year!

  55. April says:

    I LOVE Thanksgiving food. Nothing beats Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade rolls ,and sweet potato casserole. And then just think about all the fun extras you can add on to that, and then top it all off with dessert! I’m so excited just thinking about it!

  56. Katie says:

    well, my husband usually does the meals on holidays. I would have to pick whatever the dessert is, usually pie.

  57. LeAnn says:

    It has to be my great great grandmother’s recipe for butterscotch pie. It is more Thanksgiving to me than any turkey.

  58. Heidi F. says:

    I love pumpkin flavored things. My favorite is probably the eggnog pumpkin pie I make for Thanksgiving!

  59. Hollie says:

    Tough one! I would have to say my Mom’s homemade stuffing with homemade gravy poured over it! Yum!

  60. Jaesi says:

    ohmyohmyohmy! How awesome of you.
    All the goodies- homemade candy- popcorn balls- cakes- cookies- etc…
    its what makes me soooo sweet πŸ™‚

  61. I cannot wait for my favorite cranberry grand marnier torte. So yummy!

  62. Julianna Richman says:

    Only one…but there are so many…I love turkey.

  63. Shanah Tafoya says:

    My favorite holiday treat is something we call “Christmas Crack”. It’s just a sweet Chex mix with Golden Grahams, almonds and coconut but it is so good and SO addicting!!

  64. Sue says:

    My favorite holiday food is pecan pie. Yummy!

  65. Kimberly says:

    I love pumpkin cake with pecan coconut topping. Yum!

  66. Katie says:

    Apple pie:) I love making it!

    You are so generous with your time, recipes and give aways. I’ve spent the last year making your recipes 5-6 times a week. My friends think it’s a Julie/Julia thing. The NEW Bosch Universal Plus Mixer would be like meeting Julia;) Thanks again for sharing such delicious recipes!!

  67. KT says:

    I adore pumpkin pie. Actually, I love fall most of all because all of the pumpkin-type desserts are available again. Yum!

  68. Theresa says:

    I think the holiday ham is my favorite. I look forward to it all year long. Thanks for a great blog!

  69. Stew and Sam says:

    We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our grandma’s stuffing slathered with lots and lots of gravy. Yummy.

  70. Tiffany says:

    My favorite holiday food is a pressed cinnamon cookie called a bratzle. The recipe has been passed down from generation to generation and you need a special iron to make them but they are the quintessential smell and taste of the holidays to me!

  71. JaNae says:

    I love my dad’s candied yams! I look forward to them all year!

  72. Alina says:

    Pecan Pie. ummm

  73. Chris says:

    My favorite holiday food are the cinnamon rolls my Mom always makes on Christmas morning.

  74. My favorite is my Thanksgiving mashup. Here’s how I eat Thanksgiving dinner (and the way I do it, it’s all just one big glop of delicious food).

    On the bottom of the plate, we have turkey, followed by (in order): stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn, topped with mashed potatoes. Then, after everything is assembled, we mix it all together and eat it up. (And then sleep for the rest of the day.)

  75. Emily says:

    Cranberry Pie. Perfect at Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just about anytime!

  76. Rachel says:

    My favorite holiday recipe is my husband’s Grandma’s macaroni and cheese. The first time I had it I thought I had died and gone to heaven!

  77. Emily C. says:

    My husband makes the best cranberry orange pie! It’s a bit tart and goes perfectly with vanilla ice cream. We buy extra cranberries and freeze them for later in the year in case a craving hits.

  78. Kathy says:

    My favorite is cranberry tea.

  79. Tara says:

    I love anything with sugar in it, but especially pumpkin chocolate chip cookies when the weather turns in the fall – there’s just something so satisfying about the change of the season and the beginning of the holidays. Thanks so much for your site – we’ve LOVED every recipe I’ve tried

  80. Susan says:

    Pies are really my favorite. We usually make 8-10 and they turn out delicious!

  81. Reed says:

    My favorite thing about the holidays is Thanksgiving turkey.

  82. Annette Taylor says:

    Oh my!! I love Thanksgiving and Christmas meals so my fav during this time would have to be sweet potatoe casserole, collard greens and pecan pie!

  83. Jena says:

    Hmmm…. this is going to be hard but i would have to say its my Pumpkin Tiramisu. I would eat the whole pan if i could!

  84. Jessica says:

    I love the classic pumpkin pie. Whip cream is a must!

  85. Brandy says:

    It is so hard to choose. I suppose since Thanksgiving is so close it is hard to not choose a Thanksgiving dish. Homemade stuffing for sure is my favorite!

  86. Emily says:

    Lion House Rolls!! So yummy, the bread just melts in your mouth!

  87. Laura B says:

    Love the pie – all pie, but especially pecan!

  88. Sue E says:

    My mother in laws chop suey – she makes it every Christmas!

  89. Meli says:

    That’s a tough one! I love dressing, but I also love all of the Christmas candies my mom, sister, and I make each year-fudge, buckeyes, choc-covered marshmallows….all of it is sooo good!

  90. Gessica says:

    Definitely the sugar cream pie at Christmas….I dream about it!!

  91. Bren says:

    Without a doubt, my fave is Gram’s sugar cookies with “hard icing” and colored sugar. (Hard icing being royal icing. When we were kids there was hard and soft.) This is one of those things that marks that Christmas is here for all of us. Nothing special and without the hard icing and the colored sugar they are just cookies. Also, Gram’s stuffing, meaning bread, celery, onions, Bell’s, lots of stock and butter.

    And for the Fourth, it’s not the holiday for my Mum or I until the deviled eggs come out. The yolks MUST be mashed with a dab of dijon mustard and a speck of pickle juice.

    And ANY gathering at my mom’s isn’t special without Gram’s Hot Milk Sponge cake (can you tell Gram was a great cook?).

    Last year for Christmas my mom created and printed hard covered books filled with recipes – some in Gram and Pup’s handwriting! – photos and stories about our long multi-generational love of food. If you could have seen me and my two, large, manly middle aged brothers, all sitting in the warm family room, fire blazing, tree alight, SOBBING over these wonderful books!

  92. Ricki says:

    Hands down, my favorite holiday dish is pumpkin pie! I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

  93. Christine says:

    We have made Gotcha Day a holiday at our house. It’s the day we celebrate our sons adoptions from Guatemala and I make a bunch of (mostly) traditional food, like empanadas, fried plantains, arepas, and flan, and we give them a gift from Guatemala.
    A traditional holiday food I look forward to is my mom’s candied pickles that we put on ham sandwiches at Christmas….YUM!

  94. Chris & Tiff says:

    We love our family tradition of fondue. We do oil with meats, cheese with bread and veggies, and chocolate with fruit and goodies!

  95. cherie says:

    Hmmmm… do I have to come up with just one? I love Unstuffing, sour cream apple pie, and mashed potatoes with turkey gravey. I love your blog and I would love to win the Bosch!

  96. Oh me, oh my!!!! My fingers are crossed on this one! Super sweet of you! My favorite is probably Thanksgiving sweet potatoes. I always make the kind that are topped with a brown sugar/pecan crumble. Yummy! Thanks! Jeanette at [email protected](dot)com

  97. Whitney says:

    My grandmother always makes Chicken and Noodles (homemade noodles!!) for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Love love love them!!

  98. Kari says:

    Grandma’s homemade donuts at Christmas. These are the favorite of everyone in my home. Merry Christmas….

  99. Ted says:

    Pumpkin Pie!!!!

  100. marissa trefethem says:

    Halloween is my favorite holiday, and roasted pumpkin seeds are definitely my favorite holiday treat!

  101. rach says:

    that would be caramel apples drizzled with chocolate. Definitely a fall food.

  102. CoyAnn says:

    Turkey, Mashed Potatoes and Stuffing…. a package deal! Mmmm…

  103. MK says:

    I LOVE ME SOME PUMPKIN PIE!

  104. garnet says:

    Stuffing. And sinful sweet potato casserole. And homemade rolls (OH! How I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a Bosch!) And mashed potatoes. And who are we kidding? I can’t decide. Too many delicious foods this time of year and as my hips can testify, I love them all.

  105. Cheryl Burnett says:

    I just love all the Christmas candies we make, probably a little too much!!

  106. Christina says:

    My Grandma’s iced buttermilk cutout cookies at Christmas!

  107. Carinna Burnett says:

    Pumpkin pie is my favorite thing to eat at Thanksgiving.

  108. Elizabeth says:

    Candied Sweet Potatoes… yummy!

  109. Audrey says:

    Hot Almond Punch, a citrus punch with almond extract in it, is my favorite Christmas treat!

  110. Charity Burnett says:

    I like my aunt’s chex mix!!!

  111. Lindsay says:

    I love the sugar cookies my aunt makes at Christmas. They are beautifully decorated and delicious!

  112. Benjamin Burnett says:

    My absolute favorite is Puppy Chow!!

  113. Jill says:

    Homemade sugar cookies for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

  114. Hannah Burnett says:

    How in the world do I pick ONE favorite???

    I love my grandpa’s snack mix with a cup of Braum’s eggnog. Deeeeelicious!

  115. Heidi Smith says:

    Mashed Potatoes

  116. Amanda says:

    Fresh cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting on Christmas morning. YUM!

  117. Brittney says:

    Grandma’s homemade banana ice cream during Christmas time!

  118. Erin Malan says:

    Last Christmas my mom made Thomas Keller’s leek pudding recipe, and it was amazing. (http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/leek-bread-pudding)

  119. Chocolate cream pie. It’s good at Thanksgiving AND Christmas. Well, it’s pretty much good all year round. And delicious.

  120. Melissa G says:

    Stuffing – can’t beat it!

  121. Holly Naylor says:

    Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. My favorite is is the sweet potatoes smothered in brown sugar, butter and pecans!

  122. Susan says:

    Halloween is homemade donuts with lots of cinnamon and sugar, Thanksgiving is pecan pie and Christmas morning quiche!

  123. Debbie says:

    I’m going to say Wassail – it tastes so good on a cold winter day, and it makes the house smell like the holidays.

  124. Mandy says:

    Christmas cookies of every variation!

  125. Emily says:

    does a beverage count? if so, i LOVE homemade wassail on halloween night. if not than i would say my favorite “holiday food” would have to be deviled eggs on easter. is that weird? ha! it’s the only time of year i eat them but boy do i love them.

    p.s. i’ve never commented on here but i’d like you to know i read your blog every day and have made several of the recipes from it always with great success. thank you for writing!

  126. Shayna says:

    Fried Turkey comes but once a year ~ Thanksgiving!!! : )

  127. Gina says:

    Oh Mel, this is a tough one! I would have to say, homemade stuffing with sausage, mushrooms , celery, and among other ingredients!!

  128. Sarah says:

    I love the leftovers from Thanksgiving much more than the eating of the meal the first time around

  129. Stephanie says:

    Such a tough decision…I think that I really love Thanksgiving leftovers…its more acceptable when they are leftovers to eat them all mixed-together. Other than that it’s cherry pie with ice-cream, an appropriate dessert at any family gathering πŸ™‚

  130. molly says:

    I love stuffing, but only my mom can make it right (she’s in LA and I’m in MI). So, I’m going to say onion pie. Just trust me on this one. It’s divoon.

  131. Amy S. says:

    Christmas fruitcakes! I make them with my Grandmother every year. And they’re actually good, not the dense nastiness that most fruitcakes are. Ours are mostly nuts and fruit with just enough batter to hold them together…

  132. Cristina says:

    My favorite holiday food is apple pie during Thanksgiving!

  133. Sheryle says:

    It’s so hard to choose a favorite but I guess it would be stuffing.

  134. Jennifer says:

    Pecan Pie! Thank goodness I only have it once a year because it’s loaded with calories but yummy.

  135. Kimi says:

    sweet potatos! or maybe Christmas morning scones… it’s hard to choose.

  136. Traci Brazil says:

    My favorite has to be mashed potatos and turkey gravy! Yummmmy and we usually only get it twice a year. Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  137. Mendy Coleman says:

    I love Christmas dinner having a delicious ham and twice baked potatoes. My husband makes the twice baked potatoes and they are absolutely the best!

  138. joanne says:

    one is too hard!
    I love cooking for thanksgiving.
    If I absolutely have to pick, I say stuffing, but I really love the whole shebang!

  139. Cindy says:

    My favorite holiday food is my mom’s cinnamon rolls! She makes them every Thsnksgiving morning and gives them away at Christmastime. And she makes them with her Bosch of course!

  140. Laurel says:

    I love anything with pumpkin in it…. pumpkin rolls, pumpkin pie, pumpkin squares (a family favorite)…. pumpkin is where it’s at! πŸ™‚

  141. Linda says:

    That would have to be homemade stuffing…. In my book, it’s right up there with anything chocolate! I love your blog, I think I’m addicted to it, thanks for making time spent in the kitchen fun and delicious! (My family thanks you too!!)

  142. Marsha says:

    One of my favorite Thanksgiving or Christmas foods is definitely my PaPa’s Glazed Ham! Not only is it delicious but now it is a great memory of him.

  143. Britt says:

    Is there a holiday food that I DON’T love? No there is not. I’m especially a fan of all things Thanksgiving: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams, and pumpkin rolls!

  144. Sue says:

    My great-grandmother’s black walnut cookies. My mom makes them every Christmas. It’s just not Christmas without Nana’s cookies. And no one (we’ve tried) can make them like my mom can!!!

  145. Julie H says:

    I love the Lion House recipe of North Pole Broccoli. I look forward to it every year.

  146. Kimberli says:

    The one thing I really love is sweet potatoes!

  147. Dayna says:

    I love Pecan Pumpkin Crunch- there is nothing like this warm, yummy perfectly spiced dessert!

  148. Kelley says:

    Hmm….I’d have to say Slush. We have it every Thanksgiving. A fruit mixture that we freeze with some sprite added later…..love it!

  149. Kerri says:

    peppermint snowball cookies!!

  150. Judy K says:

    Thanksgiving is my favorite eating holiday and my favorite food would have to be the mashed potatoes. Everything goes with potatoes.

  151. Jenn says:

    My mom and I have always made this jello salad concoction called, Angel Salad. It is basically, jello, cream cheese (mixed together) with pineapple and whipped cream blended in. No one really likes it but us. It wouldn’t be a holiday dinner without it on the table!

  152. Sherri Beattie says:

    Easter Dinner Ham with pineapple stuffing and carrot cake for dessert! Yummy!

  153. Lisa says:

    Sushi for New Years!

  154. I think my favorite would have to be mashed potatoes and gravy! πŸ™‚

  155. sabrina says:

    my aunt denise’s raspberry banana cream pie. absolutely amazing!

  156. Hilary says:

    My Mom’s pumpkin pie! Mmmmmm!

  157. My favorite holiday food is Stuffing. Must be homemade. I love the kind cooked inside the bird, but unfortunately, my family doesn’t do that anymore.

  158. Courtney says:

    It would have to be my husbands grandmothers Frozen Cranberry Salad!!!!!!

  159. Amy Deihl says:

    I have a recipe for brining a turkey breast in apple juice and spices, I do the whole turkey for Thanksgiving. It’s so moist and flavorful!

  160. Beth says:

    big soft ginger cookies! YUM!

  161. Nikki says:

    Biscuits and Chocolate Gravy… sounds strange, but SO good.

  162. Lindsay says:

    Nothing says thanksgiving (and christmas) like my mom’s home made croissants….mmmmmmm, which coincidentally she uses her bosch to make, now I just need one so I can make them too!

  163. karen day says:

    How to choose? Hmm..being a southern girl, I would have to say pecan pie is tops. But what about my cranberry orange relish, or cornbread dressing? Decisions, decisions.

  164. Cindy says:

    It’s a tie between candied yams and pumpkin pie, stuffing is a close 2nd though.

  165. Julianne says:

    I just made your pumpkin roll….so right now that’s it!! I would love to win!!!

  166. Karin says:

    I heart Bosch too! I love homemade rolls. Which my mom makes with her Bosch πŸ™‚

  167. Julie E. says:

    I am a big fan of your recipes.

    Hmmm, at Thankgiving time, my mom makes an incredible turkey dressing that I’ve never been able to duplicate…she doesn’t use a recipe.

  168. Lee Ann L. says:

    My favorite holiday food would have to be the gravy! Ha! I know it isn’t “food”; but, I sure love smothering my turkey, taters, stuffing/dressing with gravy. We do this twice a year — Thanksgiving and Christmas. πŸ™‚

  169. teresacooks says:

    My dad’s stuffing – hands down – he doesn’t cook almost anything for the entire rest of the year, but on Thanksgiving he makes the Turkey and the stuffing and it’s soooo good.

  170. Kristin says:

    pumpkin roll with cream cheese frosting. Can’t wait for to make one!

  171. Laura Harper says:

    My mom’s famous lemon bread – amazing. And I so need a bosch! ; )

  172. Kassy says:

    Pecan pie!!
    I have always wanted a Bosch mixer πŸ™‚

  173. Chelsea says:

    Homemade gravy from turkey drippings. Yum Yum, I am hungry thinking about it. Thanksgiving here I come!

  176. Teresa says:

    Pumpkin Pie and dressing are the two dishes I look forward to the most.
    If I had to pick one, I think the pumpkin pie with whipped cream! Thanks.

  177. Rebekah Chrisman says:

    Thanksgiving sweet potatoes with apples and cinnamon. So wonderful!

  178. Tawni says:

    Stuffing! My husband hates it and I love it, so the only time I get it is Thanksgiving.

  179. Becky H says:

    I love your site. All the recipes I have tried are wonderful. I look everyday in hopes of something wonderful and it always is. Thanks. My favorite holiday food would have to be orange rolls for Thanksgiving.

  180. Shonna says:

    Not sure if I can narrow it down. Thanksgiving stuffing with gravy. Oh, and Christmas prime rib and creamy mashed potatoes with gravy. And Lion House rolls. Oh! and lemon cheesecake. And all the traditional goodies we make–peanut brittle, caramels, tiny decorated shortbread cookies. I can’t decide!

  181. juliet says:

    The best Holiday food is Pavlova! I make one for every Holiday even made up ones.

  182. Beth R says:

    Hmmm….hard to narrow it down to just ONE thing!! I think one of my favorite “foods” is cinnamon candy that we make every single year at Christmas-time. I look forward to it all year!

  183. Kristy says:

    My mom makes pecan tarts with a cream cheese pastry crust. Delicious!

  184. hayley says:

    Oh, I’m drooling over the bosch! My all time favorite holiday food is my grandma’s meatballs. She is from Holland and once a year we go to their old gorgeous house in Salt Lake. She cooks up a MEAL of dutch food, and each year she hand rolls about a million meatballs. It’s not Christmas until we have stuffed ourselves silly with them!

  185. Amanda says:

    We always make divinity at Christmas. Sugar, sugar and more sugar! Mmm!

  186. Liz K. says:

    Oh my goodness Melanie! A Bosch?! You really are the best.

    I would have to say my favorite thing and most anticipated holiday food is my Grandpa Winterholler’s German sausage. For as long as I can remember my mom would make it on Christmas morning with scrambled eggs and toast. It was especially good because we only ate in on Christmas morning. It seriously would not feel like Christmas without that breakfast.

    Thanks again!

  187. Deanna E. says:

    I definitely always look forward to making my grandma’s stuffing for Thanksgiving!

  188. eryka says:

    Mashed potatoes and gravy and apple pie. Yummy!

  189. Amy says:

    It’s hard to say but probably honey baked ham, cheesy potatoes and homemade rolls on Christmas Eve.

  190. heather says:

    I look forward to my grandmother’s dressing at Thanksgiving… no one makes it like her- yummm!

  191. Diane says:

  195. Aubrei says:

    If I had to pick it would be a toss up between roasted turkey at Thanksgiving or sugar cookies for Christmas! Delicious! Love your blog and would love to win the Bosch!

  196. Lynne says:

    dressing with gravy – yum!

  197. L. Glenn says:

    My Mother-In-Law’s pecan pie for sure! It is the best I have every tasted!

  202. lacey says:

    It wouldnt be Christmas without my mom’s Soft Ginger Crinkles…Sooo good!

  203. Erin says:

    I love pumpkin cheesecake! Oh, I wish I could win this, as I could never afford one:)

    My favorite holiday food is chocolate cream pie!

  205. leslie jenkins says:

    it has to be the after thanksgiving leftovers for sure! especially the turkey casserole my mom makes. love it. oh, and my mom’s homemade stuffing. never had it from a box, and i never will because of her.

  206. Judy says:

    My favorite thing is a cranberry cake with warm butter sauce topping at Christmas! YUM!!!

  207. Kim says:

    I’m torn – I’d normally say Eggnog, but since I’m pregnant this year, I’m craving pumpkin pie. : )

  208. Amber says:

    Grammy’s rolls! No holiday or special occasion is complete without them. And yes, a new Bosch would make them so much easier!

  209. Jill L says:

    I would have to go with pretzel salad at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It always tastes better during the holidays. I absolutely love your blog, by the way. Thanks for keeping me supplied with so many yummy recipes.

  210. Vanessa says:

    Though Christmas is by far my favorite holiday, I’m looking forward to all the Thanksgiving food and anything pumpkin!!! My husband and I went on our honeymoon last year over Thanksgiving so we missed out on the turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, stuffing, etc. etc. can’t wait!

  211. Stacy Cardon says:

    My favorite holiday treat are these delicious, and I mean delicious and festive chocolate candy cane cookies. Yum! Thanks for all your recipes. You have seriously added so many fantastic foods to our family!

  212. Jennifer says:

    My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, so my favorite holiday food is Ham, corn, rolls, pumpkin roll (or hubby’s pumpkin cheesecake), mashed potatoes.

    But on a side note I love pomegranate so I will have to try the pomegranate cheesecake.

  213. Jessica says:

    At both Thanksgiving and Christmas, I make apple-cranberry pie with crumble topping. We have affectionately named it “crapple pie.” mmmm

  214. Kaylyn Bugay says:

    Fudge and homemade turtles–I love chocolate but these are reserved for Thanksgiving and Christmas ONLY because they’re sooo yummy that I can’t stop at just one or two! πŸ™‚

  215. Valerie H. says:

    I love Thanksgiving so I would have to say my mom’s homemade stuffing.

  216. Angela says:

    Wow! You are awesome. What a great give away. My favorite holiday food is stuffing made in the bird and fudge, can’t get enough of either of them.

  217. Carol says:

    Mine is definitely homemade noodles. I have had them on Thanksgiving and Christmas since I was a baby.

  218. Tatum Hendrickson says:

    Pumpkin butterscotch cookies. My mom’s recipe. They are to die for!! The flavors and smells of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and ginger….ahhh!

  219. Susan says:

    My favorite holiday food is pecan pie! Yum yum yum.

  220. Lynda says:

    What an awesome give-a-way Mel. I seem to love all holiday food; maybe the sweet potato casserole and pecan pie the best though.

  221. Kate says:

    I am going to make pumpkin chocolate chip bread this week!

  222. Stephanie says:

    How sweet are you for this giveaway! I’ve been saving for a Bosch; with my SAHM’s salary I’ve got, say, 20 years or so more until I have enough! πŸ™‚

    I love the entire Thanksgiving meal. If I had to choose one element it would be my granny’s cheese ball recipe. It’s really nothing special, but the memories it brings back make it all the more delicious.

  223. Jill says:

    Every Thanksgiving my mother would make a strawberry pretzel salad to take to my grandparents. It’s not really a holiday food, but I have so many fond memories of it paired with my grandmother’s Thanksgiving feast, it just goes hand and hand for me now!

  224. Alison says:

    I love homeade stuffing. Unfortunately, I don’t like to make it, just eat it!

  225. Cheryl King says:

    My sister’s pumpkin rolls with cream cheese frosting filling…. yummmmmmmm…. they are to die for. The only problem is that I can’t stop until there are no more. πŸ™‚

  226. emilee hunter says:

    How to choose a favorite!? The first thing that popped into my head was our beloved sweet potato casserole so I guess it wins (second thing to pop into my head was your delicious gingerbread blondies)!

  227. Nikki says:

    Stuffing and mashed potatoes & gravy!

  228. Janae says:

    So simple, but my family looks forward to them every Christmas – pizzelle cookies.

  229. Ginger says:

    Easy. It’s my Mom’s sweet potato casserole! It tastes like candy. I have sweet dreams about it:)

  230. kelsey says:

    Definitely Christmas food: caramels, toffee, orange rolls, shortbread. I love it all. And homemade, of course!

  231. Tauna says:

    Pecan pie is one of my holiday favorites, or any pie for that matter.

  232. Kathy says:

    The dark meat from the turkey, the stuffing and the gravy!

  233. Molly says:

    Flaky, buttery, biscuits!!!

  234. Lori says:

    anything with PUMPKIN in it! Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bars, pumpkin chiffon pie, pumpkin bread….. Love it! Would love a Bosch – my KitchenAid has seen better days!

  235. Lisa H. says:

    My mother-in-law’s Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing. Love it!

  236. Hilary says:

    Hmmm, that is so hard to narrow down one food! I love to try new desserts for the holidays. Last year was a chocolate pecan pie, before that apple danish cheesecake, etc. So I would say all the sweets are my fav’s!

  237. It’s a toss up between pumpkin cheesecake and eggnog punch….YUM!

  238. Beau Hunter says:

    My favorite is apple pie.

  239. Sarah says:

    I love making and eating Peanut Butter Balls at Christmastime. I’ve done some venturing into different types of truffle-like treats at that time of year, but this is still hands-down my very favorite.

  240. Michelle Peterson says:

    It has to be my mother’s stuffing. I’ve seen her make it plenty of times but I cannot seem to duplicate it at home.

  241. Ruth says:

    Brussels sprouts.

  242. Kati S. says:

    I love this apple cake we make with a caramel sauce. It’s pretty divine and has about a pound of butter in it. Then you top it with whipped cream. It doesn’t get much better. Good thing we only make it once a year.

  243. Christine says:

    I LOVE leftover turkey and cranberry sauce sandwiches…yum, yum, yum!

  244. Holly says:

    Turkey and dressing definitely!! Give me the drumstick! Oh and don’t forget the homemade rolls…love your recipe.

  245. Summer says:

    I absolutely love anything pumpkin, as well as everything that come with thanksgiving dinner! My mom makes incredible stuffing and my dad’s mashed potatoes! Thanks for the giveaway!

  246. Deni says:

    Sour cream Sugar Cookies (my grandma makes them every christmas!)

  247. Heather H says:

    I have to say my favorite for thanksgiving is my grandma’s stuffing. We usually have to make a double batch so we can have leftovers. My next would be the fourth of July and just the whole bbq food. Sit outside and eat and visit with great frineds.

  248. Teresa Wilson says:

    Pumpkin cheesecake, and Mama Wilson’s stuffing. Oh, how we have missed her stuffing since she passed away a few years ago.

  249. Jody says:

    So hard to choose…I love the whole thanksgiving dinner. But I do especially love some candied sweet potatoes with the browned marshmallows on top!

  250. Jill Sheets says:

    My favorite for sure is homemade rolls. I love to be able to clean my plate with it:) A close second would be jello pretzel salad that is kind of a side dish, but kind of a dessert. My whole family loves it. Thanks for the chance to win. I love your blog.

  251. Aubrey says:

    My favorite would have to be either the baklava (made with almonds and lemons rather than walnuts and cloves) or caramels that my family makes for the holidays each year. Is it Thanksgiving yet?

  252. Grace says:

    My favorite holiday food would have to be the two casseroles my Mom makes every Christmas morning.We, the kids that is, open our stockings then dig into breakfast before returning to open more presents! She makes an Egg Strata with onions and mushrooms and cheese, and also a delicious hash brown casserole topped with buttery corn flakes. My Gramma always stops by Krispy Kreme and picks up some hot glazed donuts to accompany the casseroles. Usually I would fall over thinking about eating all this rich food but Christmas breakfast is actually our big meal of the day and we keep it simple for the rest of the day=)

  253. Julie C says:

    Oh how hard to pick just one! I guess it would be our Christmas morning breakfast roll. We also give them away at Christmas and one of our friend’s sons renamed it Paradise! It is sooooo very yummy!

  254. Shellie says:

    Yam’s mashed like potato’s with a good helping of butter and brown sugar (no marshmellow’s PLEASE).

  255. Melissa says:

    My Grandma’s cheesy broccoli dish. Good all year round!

  256. Michelle says:

    I will have to go with the turkey,mashed potatoes and gravy at Thanksgiving. Technichally they are three items but not the way I eat them.

  257. Barbara says:

    I have to go with Thanksgiving … the pumpkin pie, the fresh cranberry sauce … and mostly the friends and family who help eat all the yummy food!

    Thanks for doing this!

  258. Kimberly Jeppson says:

    “One of my favorites” is ham, double baked potatoes and orange rolls! Yummy

  259. Kara says:

    My favorite is our cherry cream pie that we have at Thanksgiving!!

  260. Dayna says:

    Hands down, sweet potato souffle. Never mind the butter and sugar ratio to actual sweet potato…it is delicious.

  261. Jamie says:

    Currently, it is Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls. Every year our youth team spends a week blowing out sprinklers to raise funds for youth ministry and I make them cinnamon rolls. This year, I used your buttermilk cinnamon roll recipe and adapted it a little. Everyone loved them! Does that count for a holiday?

  262. Michelle says:

    Would HAVE to be pumpkin cheesecake. I could eat it all day long, every day!!! Yummyyyyyyy!!!!!

  263. Keri Harrison says:

    Oreo Truffles for Christmas – yum!!

  264. Jayne says:

    It would be stuffing with turkey gravy. Mmmmm.

  265. Tami says:

    I’m partial to the peppermint molasses cookies at Christmas time but our traditional Christmas Eve dessert from my childhood is peppermint ice cream in an Oreo pie crust with homemade chocolate sauce. It’s delicious.

  266. Tara says:

    Oooh, I want one of these so bad.

    I love making food for Halloween. My favorite is making cheesy potato soup or creamy chicken tortilla soup and serving it in bread bowls that look like pumpkins.

    Fall food is the best!

  267. Bec says:

    My birthday of course – ‘cuz my fabulous-cook-of-a-husband makes me whatever I choose! YUM!

  268. Kayla says:

    Oh man, where do I even start? Apple pie..Christmas cookies…but if I had to choose just one I’d go with CINNAMON ROLLS. I LOVE your vanilla pudding cinnamon roll recipe. They’re divine!

  269. Amy Wolin says:

    My absolute favorite dish is Thanksgiving turkey stuffing!

  270. Deepapriya says:

    Gingerbread cookies for Christmas.

  272. Crystal says:

    Wow! That is a tough one. I love almost all holiday foods! I really love turkey, mashed potatoes, cheese ball and I loved your pomegrante cheese cake. I think I ate most of it myself last year.

  273. Jamie Raley says:

    I would have to say Mashed potatoes and gravy. YUM!

  274. Ariane says:

    Pumpkin Spice bars with cream cheese frosting. So good!!! Really though, I like all things pumpkin!

  275. Lisa says:

    Ok, I am a Holiday addict and in love with Bosch so this is the place for me. It’s so hard to pick just one, but here are my favorites at the top of the list-sour cream lemon pie, Grandma’s featherlight rolls that I FINALLY mastered, sweet potatoes and yams(preferably with a bite of turkey and stuffing, oh the love), and chocolate haystacks at Christmas YUM!!!!

  276. Teri says:

    My favorite holiday food is pumpkin pie.

  277. Judy Stohl says:

    I love having our breakfast casserole on Christmas morning. I also love my Bosch. It is over 30 years old and on it’s last leg but I keep babying it along. I have a kitchen aid but can’t give up my Bosch!

  278. Bridgett says:

    mmm… probably stuffing, or anything with lots of carbs :). So nice of you to do a giveaway of your own.

  279. Margee says:

    I am going to have to go with good ol’ classic pumpkin pie.

  280. June g. says:

    My own pan of strawberry pretzel salad.

  281. Elizabeth says:

    Hmmm… I think all of the leftovers after Thanksgiving. There are too many yummy things to choose just one.

  282. amanda says:

    My grandma’s “Night Before Christmas Soup”. It is DE-LIGHT-FUL!

  283. Lynne says:

    My great-grandma’s dinner rolls!

  284. Amy says:

    I love about anything with pumpkin. Sweet or Savory. Heaven!

  285. Diana says:

    Wow! That’s a tough question to answer because I LOVE FOOD! I’ll narrow it down to my any of my sis-in-law’s pies! The coconut cream is my fav!

  286. Nicole W. says:

    My absolute favorite holiday dish is apple pie on Thanksgiving! Even if I’m stuffed I always get a slice πŸ™‚

  287. Betsy Johnson says:

    Homemade baked carmel corn at Chirstmas Time.

  288. Katie Slade says:

    Frog Eye Salad!!!

    I would love a new mixer…my mother-in-law loves her bosch and has taught me to make bread in it.

  289. Julie Burgess says:

    There are so many good ones! But the one with the most memories attached would have to be warm cinnamon rolls and breakfast casserole. I adore your cinnamon roll recipe with the vanilla pudding. It always turns out. πŸ™‚

  290. Jenn says:

    I love appetizers at Christmas parties. Is that weird?

  291. Janae says:

    Oh wow this would be amazing! I have a lot of favorites, but I’d have to say my MOST favorite treat during the holida is hot chocolate…of ANY kind. There’s just nothing like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold morning, afternoon, or evening. We like to dunk toast or cookies in it as well!

  292. Danielle says:

    My favorite holiday food is anything Thanksgiving! I love the turkey, stuffing, pie, mashed potatoes, green been casserole…I love it all : )!

  293. Kirsten says:

    Cinnamon Rolls fo sure! And pumpkin bread and Pumpkin Pie. And homemade Orange bowknots! Mmmmm

  294. Amber says:

    My favorite for any of the Holidays would just be sugar cookies. . . . Soft sugar cookies, cut out into a variety of cute shapes and decorated with cream cheese frosting . They are great because you can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. mmmmm

  295. Amy says:

    I love everything that is Thanksgiving… Another favorite is Eggnog French Toast that we have on Christmas morning. It is made with croissants instead of regular bread, eggnog, eggs, nutmeg and top it with vanilla yogurt and fruit syrup. It’s soooo not good for you, hence the once a year, but it is so good!

  296. Andrea says:

    I love stuffing. It can’t be mushy though. yum.

  297. Melenie says:

    Oh man, my sad little Sunbeam stand mixer isn’t going to last much longer, I could really use this! My favorite thing to make and eat is pumpkin roll! Yum.

  315. CAmille says:

    Oh that’s a hard one! Probably the sticky buns my mom always makes Christmas morning. Or fudge. Or sweet potatoes (the super un-healthy kind)! Yumm!!!

  316. Julia says:

    I LOVE the holidays! My favorite time of the year. I love the christmas eve dinner my mom always makes and my favorite part, the prime rib roast she makes and the mash potato casserole! So good!

  323. Candria says:

    Sugar cookies shaped like trees and decorated with green frosting for arbor day… So wonderful!
    Not really…. I’m the only one that likes the sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving, so they really only get made once a year. I always look forward to it!!!

  324. Jessica says:

    My favorite holiday food is definitely my mom’s crescent rolls. They are so light and delicious! I always eat so many that I don’t have room for the rest of my meal!

  325. Matt says:

    Homemade 3-layer candy. Wonderful.

    My FAVORITE recipe – Lion House Dinner Rolls! I love carbs and the holidays is just one more reason to justify eating them. πŸ™‚

    Oh, please pick me. I have had my eye on this for a couple of years now. In fact a small part on my bosch broke and I was excited because this meant that Icould justify a new one. Sadly bosch is WELL-MADE and many parts are relatively inexpensive to replace thus dashing my hopes.

  332. Shelly says:

    My favorite Christmas morning holiday food has to be Sourdough Waffles with Sausage Ring. This breakfast is delicous and screams TRADITION!

  333. Debbie says:

  343. Staci says:

    I would have to say that my favorite holiday food is Shlefferlies. It is a pastry recipe that has been in my family for generations. They take forever to make and are very fattening, so we only make them around Christmas.

  344. Nena says:

    Our entire family loves my Sweet Potatoe recipe. A light, sweet sauce that just glazes the potatoes. I look forward each year to have my 4 daughter’s come up to the house and help me prepare out dinner. I would love to win the Bosch! Thanks so much for you great blog.

  345. HaLee Webster says:

    Caramel Brownies! They are my son’s “Happy Birthday” cake. Love your blog!

  346. Stephanie says:

    Sweet Potatoes!!! (Even though I eat them every week!)

  347. Jean says:

    Melanie–you and your blog are awesome!
    I love English toffee at Christmas. I make batches and batches. It’s the only time I can justify eating that much butter!

  348. Katrina Mortensen says:

    My favorite is proabably Thanksgiving sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.

  349. Elyse says:

    I have to go with my mother-in-laws stuffing. I’ve tried to duplicate it, but it’s just not the same. Soooo moist and good.

  350. Emily H. says:

    I love my mom’s pecan pie on Thanksgiving.

  351. Becca says:

    PUMPKIN PIE!!!!

  352. katy says:

    So hard to pick my favorites, there are so many but I’d have to say cheese cake and stuffed mushrooms are up high on my list. Thanks

  353. My mom’s famous rolls, pumpkin crunch, oreo bon bons…I don’t think I can pick just 1! I love the holidays, mostly for the food πŸ˜‰

  354. Katie says:

    I would have to say that my favorite holiday food is Christmas cookies…I can’t wait to start making them!!!

  355. Charlotte says:

    I really love Thanksgiving stuffing…just the basic homemade version with bread, celery, and onions.! πŸ™‚

  356. Melynda says:

    The “cooked in the bird stuffing” , covered in thickened pan gravy. I live for this each year. And of course the best stuffing ever starts with homemade bread that is cut and dried, and a small pan of homemade cornbread, crumbled and left to dry. Thanks for this opportunity.

  357. Amber says:

    Stuffing…I could live off of stuffing.

  358. Mandy Bird says:

    It would be my husband’s grandma’s pine nut stuffing. She makes it with rice and it is heavenly.

  359. Michelle says:

    Once October hits I love anything pumpkin………pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin cake roll and pumpkin pancakes are my favorites.

  360. Stacie Pettingill says:

    Hmm….this is a tough one but I’d have to say the Raspberry Cheesecake Trifle my family always eats on Easter.

  362. Pam says:

    My favorite recipe is Thanksgiving Butterscotch Yams (or Sweet Potatoes)

    I will share this recipe with you if you want. Trust me- you want. It’s FANTASTIC! And the Butterscotch sauce tastes SO GOOD on the Turkey as well…

  363. I LOVE a 7-layer salad we only have at Thanksgiving (lettuce, peas, cheese, green onions, mayo, etc.), and also LOVE our tradition of danish pastries we make every Christmas!

  364. Sherri says:

    Definitely the fresh baked rolls at Thanksgiving dinner.

  365. Heidi says:

    Well it’s thanksgiving in Canada today and I’ve been dreaming about my mother in laws apple pie ALL weekend. It’s not your average apple pie, it is the best apple pie I’ve ever had. Yum!

  366. Gail Smith says:

    My favorite holiday dish is our Thanksgiving cranberry apple salad.

    This time of year it would have to be Pumpkin rolls with Cream cheese frosting. Yummers!

  369. Barbij says:

    Oh my gosh! I have been eyeing a Bosch for some time! This would be great to have! Right now, I think a thanksgiving dinner sounds DELISH! I can’t commit to one menu item since they all come together as one big plate of deliciousness! πŸ™‚

  370. Liz H says:

    Hard choice! ONE of my favorites is Martha’s wild mushroom and sage stuffing. To. Die. For.

  371. Lisa Jastal says:

    My fav would have to be Thanksgiving turkey. I go back and much on leftovers in the fridge all week long and it’s always so moist because we cook it upside down so all the juices trickle down. Mmm….

  372. Vickie says:

    Anything pumpkin.

  373. Ryan Martin says:

    My wife’s pumpkin pie. Hands down the best around! I really want to win this for her because she has wanted one FOREVER and we haven’t had the money to fork out. She would be so happy!

  377. Candice W. says:

    My favorite holiday food is pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins…etc!

  378. Jen says:

    My favorite holiday dessert is definitely a pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling! Yum! I also love stuffing and my mom’s sweet potato recipe. She adds coconut, butter, brown sugar and half/half to the sweet potatoes . It is to die for!

  379. Sonya says:

    How do I just pick one. My traditional choice would be stew on Christmas Eve, but I know I’m going to work many of yours into our holiday feast. Your Ham skillet will be perfect for leftovers!

  380. Natalie says:

    Thanksgiving is close… I love anything pumpkin! Specifically pumpkin bread.

  381. Wyatt says:

    Pumpkin Pie, on Thanksgiving!

  382. Jess Lundahl says:

  383. Jenny R says:

    Anything that has to do with being sweet, a bread, or both!

  384. OH MY GOSH!!! I want a Bosch SO bad! How great would it be to win one. I’d have to say my FAVORITE has always been the rolls at thanksgiving (kinda boring I know, but it was always all I ever ate because of my pickiness)

  385. ANNIE M. says:

    I love pumkin pie! I never make it for any other reason than for Thanksgiving but I LOVE IT!!

  386. Denise Beckstrand says:

    My favorite food during the holidays would have to be Thanksgiving dinner. I love spending time with my family and the turkey is especially wonderful. I think that anything that brings the family together tastes extra good because you have so many memories to go along with it.

  387. Rachel Stuart says:

    Pie!! All kinds of pie!!

  388. Heather says:

    Wow! How generous! Thank you!

    My favorite holiday food has to be pecan pie. I only make it for Thanksgiving and could eat the whole dang thing myself.

  389. Emilee K. says:

    I love having cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, yum!

  390. Shannon says:

    My favorite would have to be cinnamon rolls. Love em warm from the oven with melty glaze!

  391. Debi says:

    There is no way to come up with just one favorite holiday dish. So many good ones and traditional family dishes from loved ones no longer with us. Special times call for special eats! Never used one of these mixers before, thanks for the chance to win one!

  392. Kim says:

    definitely mashed potatoes and gravy. anytime anywhere

  393. Amy M says:

    It’s hard to name just one thing but I really love my mom’s recipe for sour cream press cookies.

  394. Josie says:

    For me it would have to be my Grandma Berrett’s Orange Rolls on Thanksgiving. Nothing says the holidays like those buttery puffs of goodness.

    Gooey pumpkin butter cake! I’m looking forward to making it soon for Thanksgiving if I can wait that long.

  396. Dorie says:

    Homemade fudge and caramels. Yum!!!

  397. Jill Fielding says:

    Definitely toffee!

  398. Angela says:

    Now brace yourself…this is exotic….but I can’t get enough mashed potatoes and holidays seem to abound with them! I love them! And each type of gravy you get to pair them with for the different holidays, now that’s exciting.

  399. Wendy says:

    We never go wrong with our favorite apple pie with struesel topping. Crust made with butter; filling made with diced apples instead of sliced (what a difference that little bit makes!), a combination of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon; and a struesel with more butter and cinnamon to top it all off. This pie is never intact by the time Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner begin. One year, it was half gone before we started eating the meal!

  400. Heather H. says:

    I love love love that at Thanksgiving I get to have Greenberg Smoked Turkey and my grandmother’s cornbread stuffing!

  401. Candace says:

    I Love pumpkin crisp for Thanksgiving. I have been a Bosch lover all my life.

  402. Amber Lavin says:

    My favorite holiday dessert is Lemon Cheesecake! I don’t love pumpkin or pecan pie so my sister has always made a lemon cheesecake for Thanksgiving and it is the highlight of the whole meal!

  403. Angie says:

    Pumpkin roll with cream cheese frosting. I’m not so big on pumpkin pie, but I could eat a whole pumpkin roll all by myself.

    Brownie Cherry Cheesecake. We make it for Christmas every year!

  405. Leslie says:

    home made cranberry sauce! LOVE that!

  411. Robyn says:

    Pumpkin pie or pumpkin cookies!

  412. Leisel says:

    Seriously Mel, you expect us to narrow it down to just one favorite recipe. If I had only one favorite recipe I wouldn’t find myself checking your blog DAILY. Hmmn, I’m going to have to say the Parker House Rolls. They are winners every time. But last night I didn’t have time to wait for the yeast to rise so I went with your Cheddar and Herb biscuits!! SO GOOD! I’m thinking my second favorite Holiday food is a cranberry marshmallow salad that my Mom makes. It is amazing and just screams “Holidays” when you let it melt in your mouth!

  413. G. says:

    there are so many holiday foods I love…but, I think I look forward to Christmas cookies the most! πŸ™‚

    My mother in-law makes her Thanksgiving turkey with a sweet basting sauce and I LOVE it. It just makes the holiday for me. πŸ™‚

  418. Amanda says:

    I love Christmas morning cinnamon rolls!! …but I think I’d love a Bosch even more!!

  419. BertleMama says:

    I love you even more that I know you are a Bosch girl!!
    Favoriye holiday food?? either Grandma’s Chocolate pudding tarts and popcorn balls, Stuffing, Uncle Mark’s creamed corn. I’ll stop there.

  420. My favorite Appetizer that we would always make on Christmas Eve is seven Layer bean dip! Love it!!

  421. Cheryl Newton says:

  432. kristy c says:

    sugar cookies. every holiday is an excuse to make them. well, actually every day is a an excuse to make them but i try to limit them to holidays :]

  433. Jen says:

    Homemade rolls dipped in gravy/stuffing/mashed potatoes. Yum!

    I love apple pie after a rest from eating Thanksgiving dinner. It just finishes it off!

  435. Faith says:

    Mmmmm….I am so glad that it is finally back in stores, because my fav holiday dish is anything with pumpkin, pump for short! Pump pie, pump cheesecake, pump bread, pump pancakes, pump cookies…you name a pump dish and I am sitting and ready with my fork! I am pregnant this year, so I am sure I will consume more than my fair share of this orange goodness!

    I love our Christmas Eve dinner- ham, au gratin potatoes, salad, rolls…YUM!

  439. Katherine says:

    It’s impossible to imagine narrowing it down to just one – but in keeping with the request it would have to be the chocolate fondue that we do as a family on Christmas Eve – no worries if we run out of dippers, it’s good enough to eat with a spoon!

  440. Savannah says:

    Hands down, my mom’s pumpkin roll! my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  444. Jenny G says:

    How to pick one…right now I really want my mom’s fudge. It melts in my mouth, mmmmmm.

  445. Carla says:

    I love fudge & Christmas is the only time of the year that I make it. I especially like eating it out of the pan, warm & gooey!

  446. suzie says:

    Mine would have to be better than sex cake, I could eat that everyday!! delish!!

  447. Jen says:

    I was just thinking yesterday… I need a Bosch like Mel…. I’m afraid my KitchenAid just doesn’t cut it for heavy breads and such. Hoping Karma finds its’ way to me!

  448. Chris says:

    Pies on Thanksgiving Day. But only my wife’s pies, of course.

    My moms’ family Twinkling Rolls. We have them EVERY Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is a huge production to make, but so worth the effort.

  451. Angie Migliori says:

  452. Jen says:

    Ahhh! realized I forgot my favorite food – Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins… Mmmmm…

  453. Paula says:

    I would have to say my favorite holiday food of this moment (it changes all the time) is pumpkin roll. I really love anything pumpkin this time of year.

  454. Denise McEntee says:

    So hard to narrow this down, but the most traditional thing during the holidays for me is banana pudding on Thanksgiving. YUM. We always made ours the quick way – not ‘cooked’ like the real way (which i never had until I was an adult). The taste isn’t that different to me so I still go with quick. Love the holidays- what a great giveaway!

  455. Leigh Anne says:

    Favorite holiday food – so many choices!!! Anything with cinnamon!

  456. Kim says:

    Cheese ball. And it’s a good thing I only make/eat it around the holidays. Boy, oh boy! πŸ™‚

    Halloween at our house would not be complete without caramel corn, caramel apples and my mother-in-law’s last-minute-what-am-I-going-to-make-for dinner concoction, Hot Dog Tortilla Surprise (basically a chili cheese dog in a tortilla). : )

  458. Andrea says:

    First of all, can I just tell you how much I love your blog? So many of your recipes have become staples in my household. And oh, how I would love a Bosch! My Kitchen Aid isn’t cutting it, I’m sorry to say.

  464. Heather says:

    I would say stuffing with my dad’s fried turkey!! He use to make about 15 every Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  465. Oh my! How amazingly generous of you! Thanks for the chance to win. I think my favorite holiday food has to be the Green Bean Casserole recipe from the back of the Fried Onions can. I know – so totally non-gourmet, but something magical happens in the oven that turns canned green beans and condensed soup into pure bliss! I love it! Another favorite is my Cranberry Pineapple Jell-o thingy: http://pedersenfood.blogspot.com/2010/07/cranberry-pineapple-jello-stuff.html

  466. Heather says:

  474. Rebekah says:

    There can never be one favorite when it comes to holiday food. I love going to my moms and making homemade candy such as fudge and english toffe and turtles. Then my favorite holiday cookie is easy, NUTMEG LOGS, they are divine! Oh lets not forget Ham with a glaze nobody can make like my Mom. Pumpkin pie made from fresh pumpkin no canned stuff from the store around here. Last year I implemented you spinach artichoke dip and it was an instant hit. I think I gained 5lbs thinking about all this food. Lets not forget that the new favorite will be the rolls I make this year if I win a lovely Bosch!

  475. Allison says:

    I really love all Thanksgiving food, but my Christmas favorite is my mom’s Swiss Pudding, with berries on top. So, so delicious!

  497. Kristi Rowley says:

    I love homemade candy at Christmas time. My Grandma’s Boston Cremes are the BEST! I would really love to win this!! Here’s hoping! I told my husband that the only thing I want for Christmas this year is a Bosch!

  498. Brian Judy says:

    Well, my favorite eating holiday is Thanksgiving, but there is no way that I could narrow it down to one Thanksgiving food. So I have to go with Strawberry Shortcake for 4th of July! YUM!

  512. Amy says:

    candied yams for sure!

  513. Vicky says:

    Pumpkin pie is definitely at the top, but at Christmas time I love a certain type of cookie that my family always makes. I can’t do Christmas without it.

  514. Molly says:

    I love the marinated carrots my grandmother makes for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  515. Dawn R. says:

  522. jaz says:

    halloween baked brain (brie baked in puff pastry)!

  523. Crystal says:

    Stuffing is the best! My family would have it for any holiday that involved a feast, and other times during the year. Any excuse for that amazing stuff!

  524. Jen says:

    pumpkin anything all winter long! Love my best friends pumpkin roll, but my no-bake pumpkin pie is pretty spectacular too. And pumpkin pecan bars…mmm! And I love that pumpkin baked goods can carry me from October to January, no need to choose just one holiday! πŸ™‚

    I would choose our annual pecan cookies. Light and tasty rolled in powdered sugar for that perfect sweet and salty taste. Mmmm!

  528. brittany says:

    autumn cheesecake is by far my favorite….nothing beats cheesecake but with apples, nuts, cinnamon-it’s to die for!!! love your blog……you are my go-to when i don’t know what to cook for dinner so i pretty much visit every day!! πŸ™‚

  529. Jaimee says:

    I love to cook with pumpkin all during the fall. Pumpkin orange bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ravioli. Yay pumpkin!

  530. Destiny says:

    I love pretty much anything with Pumpkin!

  531. Jeanne Mason says:

    My favorite holiday food has got to be anything with Pumpkin in it!! Or any kid of homemade bread! I love making bread and will do it any time of the year! πŸ™‚

  532. Marcela says:

    I don’t do turkey for Thanksgiving but give me a chicken stuffed with some cornbread stuffing and I’m one happy gal! πŸ™‚

  533. Carrie says:

    Fav holiday food? Pumpkin scones, pumpkin pancakes, any christmas cookie from my childhood, stuffing with sausage and cornbread and apples and cranberries…. I can feel the pounds coming for my waistline already!

  534. Amanda says:

    Mine would be swedish oven pancakes that we make on Christmas morning. Yumm!

  535. Tanis says:

    I LOVE Sweet Potatoes only instead of marshmallows on top, I serve them with a delicious pecan topping that is much like what you’d put on an apple crisp. Delish!!!

  536. Cindy says:

    My favorite holiday food has to be Easter colored hard boiled eggs. Low maintenance, yes, but with each bite I remember my dad running around with us and laughing with us with each discovery. Then would come the frantic search for that last missing egg – laughter “peeling” everywhere. This continued with my own children and for one Easter with a great-grandchild – my first grandchild. Bless you dad for the memories and laughter.

  537. Janae says:

    What an amazing give away! My favorite all time favorite holiday food is stuffing on Thanksgiving Day.

  539. Tyler says:

    Pumpkin anything. And hot chocolate with donuts are a fall must have treat for me!

  540. Jill parkinson says:

    Bacon and egg enchiladas on Christmas morning. Served with fruit soup and homeade hot chocolate. Simply the best!

  541. My mother-in-law’s Christmas Potatoes (okay, it’s really just funeral potatoes but she only makes them at Christmas so we call them Christmas Potatoes) is something I look forward to all year long.

  542. Veronica says:

    I can’t believe you’re giving away a Bosch mixer! Whoa, Melanie, that is incredibly generous! Well, I guess my favorite holiday food is STUFFING. It takes precedence over everything, even the turkey. I am kind of obsessed with it!

  543. Patricia says:

    chocolate pumpkin cheesecake. I make two every Thanksgiving and only for Thanksgiving because it is very time consuming ,but so delicious and worth the unmentionable calories in one serving. The first Thanksgiving I only made one, but when I was left scooping up the crumbs and filling off the serving dish – I learned my lesson. It even made my 19 year old son who hates anything creamy a cheesecake lover – well at least a chocolate pumpkin cheesecake lover!

  544. Amber Wray says:

    Mine would be Fall White Chili. Warm yummy chili always hits the spot come Fall (Halloween). And it’s a fun change:)

  545. Megan S says:

    My Favorite food (and many others’ favorite too ) is my grandma’s crescent roll! We have them for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and occasionally on other special times. They are delicious and the best part is they are almost fool proof!!
    Another one of my favorites is a broccoli salad my mom makes. We have it for Thanksgiving and I can usually convince her to make it for Christmas too. yum!

  546. Renee Goodman says:

    Shrimp Dip. I could never go through the holidays without this
    yummy family recipe. It’s SO good.

  547. Dona R says:

    Christmas is the time for me!! I love pula bread (streusel from Finland) for breakfast with hot chocolate …….. I might have to make some today. πŸ™‚

  558. Kendall says:

    Cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning!!!! I could make my own with a new Bosch!

  559. Emily Hartvigsen says:

    I love yams at Thanksgiving – I would gladly eat them at every other holiday too!

  560. The best part about the holidays, is all of the food! Homemade rolls at Thanksgiving is one of my top favorites though, but only if there is homemade raspberry jam to go with it!!!

  561. N icole C. says:

    So hard to pick just one – but sweet potato casserole is definitely at the top of the list! πŸ™‚

  562. Nice giveaway and very hard to narrow down. Hmm? Easter dinner Cheesy Hashbrown Bake. That is one of my faves. Simple potatoes, cream and sharp cheddar. Recipe probably to come in April, lol. I will be trying your 2 hour turkey!

  563. Polly says:

    Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday for cooking. My Dad’s cornbread stuffing recipe is loved by everyone at the table!

  564. Hilery Somers says:

  569. Midori Nakano says:

    I love my mom’s stuffing w/ Italian Sausage and pumpkin pie with homemade crust.

  570. Leslie says:

    Cream Cheese Pie (not to be mistaken for cheesecake)!

  571. Stephanie B says:

    Homemade apple pie is my favorite holiday dish! Of course, once a year is not enough, so I usually make one on Pi Day (March 14th).

  572. Marie says:

    Pumpkin pancakes are a definite holiday favorite for us. It’s like eating pumpkin pie for breakfast and you can’t beat that!

  573. I love love love my grandmas stuffing. I don’t think I would need anything else!

  574. Carolyn says:

    Definitely Cream Cheese Bread that we eat warm on Christmas morning!

  575. Elise Livingston says:

    My all time favorite holiday food is the noodles that we make for Thanksgiving. It’s an old family tradition that goes back lots and lots of years. Yep, nothing better than gravy-licious thick noodles on a bed of mashed potatoes!

  576. BRIETTNEY LYBBERT says:

    For sweet, pumpkin pie with reeeeeal whipping cream for savory, my moms Shepard’s bread- that cream cheese garlic and salty dried beef…yummy, can’t wait!

  582. dora says:

    I love fall so I guess Thanksgiving with all the pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie and pumpkin ice cream! Pumpkin is delish!

  585. Kimberly S says:

    My favorite is Thanksgiving Dinner! I realize that isn’t ONE food, but the combo of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, peas, and cranberry sauce all in one mouthful… HEAVEN!!!

  589. Keri says:

    Thanksgiving Turkey–yummmmmm.

  590. Cara says:

    Melanie, one of my favorite foods that goes with all holidays is an appetizer recipe for sticky chicken wings. It is just fabulous and always a hit. As always, I love your site!

  591. Aubrey Jorden says:

    It’s a little non traditional but mine would have to be the homemade pizza my family has on Christmas Eve. My mom started making this when I was little and I look forward to it every year.

  592. alesia says:

    Definitely Thanksgiving food!! Turkey and dressing all the way.

  593. Becky L. says:

    I love pumpkin cheesecake!

  594. Laurie says:

    Hallowen is my favorite holiday and I love love love your recipes.

  595. Nate R. says:

    For me, my favorite holiday food is chocolate. I love the abundant presence of chocolate during holidays: truffles, dipped pretezel rods, cookies, pumpkin bread with chocolate chips, fudge, chocolate pie – well, you get the picture. If anything, this post reminds me that I need to loose about 10 pounds in the next month so that I am prepared for the unavoidable holiday weight gain (all from chocolate).

  596. Marcia Herrgott says:

    It’s a toss up between Steve’s homemade stuffing or Aunties cranberry salad ….yummy πŸ™‚

  597. carla says:

    My grandma’s chicken spaghetti. Not even made like it sounds! So yummy and a Christmas tradition.

  598. Rachel says:

    Mine has to be au gratin sweet potatoes – YUMMY!

  599. Anna says:

    Mashed potatoes and mac n cheese casseroles during Thanksgiving and Christmas are my FAV!

  600. Tara says:

    I would be so sad if I didn’t get my pumpkin seed kick every year.

  601. Kim says:

    My favorite food would be homemade stuffing with apples and celery in it.

  602. Barb Stanger says:

    I would have to say EVERYTHING on Thanksgiving………..turkey, cranberry, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, stuffing, rolls. MMMMMMMM!

  603. Emily Salway says:

    My favorite holiday food to make would have to be clam chowder on Christmas Eve. The tradition comes from England way back in our family line. It may sound like an odd food tradition, but I just don’t think it would be Christmas Eve without it!!

  604. Rachel says:

    I would have to say my mom’s homemade strawberry shortcake during the 4th of July is my absolute favorite! I’ve never found another shortcake recipe that I’ve liked and I look forward to this every year!

  605. Kat says:

    My favorite holiday food is spice cookies with pumpkin dip.

  607. nicole says:

    anything on the Thanksgiving day dinner table!

  608. Amy says:

    My mother-in-law makes a “Broccoli Puff” that is awesome! It sounds questionable, but it is delicious! We typically have it at Christmas and Thanksgiving.

  609. SYLVIA says:

    It’s got to be panetone…..Christmas childhood memories!

  610. Traci says:

    Silly, but my favorite holiday food is ham on Christmas Eve. It’s never anything fancy and most times my mom just warms it up in the microwave, but I think it’s just the feeling in the air that makes the food taste so good!

  611. My favorite is my mom’s family Orange Rolls. I have now introduced them to my hubby’s family, and am the designated orange roll maker now! Thanks!

  612. Trisha says:

    I would have to say Chocolate Cream Pie at Thanksgiving. YUMMY!!!

  613. DanielleB says:

    My favorite is stuffing on Thanksgiving!

  614. Sammy says:

    Pecan pie – oh sooo good!!

  615. Tiffany says:

    I love food so coming up with one is hard, so I will just say, Mint Oreo Bon Bons. Love those things!

  616. Ashley says:

    What a great giveaway — so perfect for the upcoming feasts to prepare for the holidays! I’d have to say my favorite holiday food is the turkey and cranberry sauce. With some candied yams, and the homemade rolls are just awesome!

  617. Lisa says:

    This might sound peculiar, but it has become a Christmas staple in my oh-so-Irish household.

    Tomato Soup Cake — sounds so weird, but it’s so delicious! I’ve been told it was crafted during the Great Depression. Walnuts, raisins, and cream cheese frosting all make for a really delicious cake where tomato soup is the star ingredient.

    I think when it first came into creation it was dubbed “mystery cake” (how many people would be open minded about eating tomato soup IN a cake?), and due to its frugal ingredients and delicious end product, it was a great recession-proof dessert.

  618. MichaelJoseph says:

    My grandma’s Christmas fudge.

  619. Mindy McDonald says:

    I love Grandma’s Sweet Potatoes with Orange Sauce!

  620. Dorcas says:

    Pie-any kind that’s made. I’ll eat a small amount of the main meal and cut half pieces of pie to taste them all! One off my goals in life is to become an expert at crust-making so I make more pie through out the year. My next fav is Thanksgiving evening when I finally get hungry again-Some turkey, stuffing, cranberry salad, mashed potatoes layered between the dinner rolls with gravy over it all-lol ,I guess thats when I have my official ‘Thanksgiving’ meal.

  621. Melanie Maughan says:

    Stuffing and Caramel Pull-a-parts!

  622. Angela says:

    My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, so it’d have to be pumpkin pie! Although a very close second is homemade caramels at Christmas time! (I would really LOVE a Bosch!) πŸ™‚

  623. Julie says:

    I have several but to avoid filling space, I will say Pumpkin Pie on Thanksgiving. We usually have hot apple cider too which is equally tasty.

  624. Dawn says:

    When I got married 7 years ago, I was introduced to a whole new set of holiday traditions and foods! My favorite Christmas appetizer is my MIL’s Cranberry Salsa. You can’t go wrong when you mix the beautiful colors and flavors of cranberry, jalapeno, and cilantro draped over a block of cream cheese. It is delicious served with crackers! Now I am excited for the holidays!

  625. Maria says:

    I have to have frozen cranberry salad at Thanksgiving!

  626. Dorcas says:

    Pie-any kind that’s made. I’ll eat a small amount of the main meal and cut half pieces of pie to taste them all!

  627. Beth says:

    I think I would have to say homemade carmels or peppermint bark. I always make way too much and yet it all gets eaten.

  628. ChrissieK says:

    Wow, that is a lot of comments! AMAZING. Favorite food? hmmm, a yummy oven-baked turkey all juiced up w/ its own gravy.

  629. SueAnn says:

    I would have to say the “Turkey”. I make a turkey dinner 3 times a year, in the Fall, Spring and Summer. The turkey is so moist and perfectly cooked when using a Digital Thermometer that stays in the turkey breast the whole time cooking. My husband doesn’t care for turkey but he loves mine. I have made this turkey recipe for a church christmas dinner for 190 people. It was the bomb! Having it again this christmas.

  630. Emily Rogers says:

    Just plain ol’ mashed potatoes and gravy on Thanksgiving. Favorite holiday, favorite food.

  631. Keveny says:

    We love making tiny gingersnap cookies to go with a pumpkin cream cheese dip (serve the dip in a scooped out little pumpkin – so cute!) We make them all through the Halloween and Thanksgiving seasons!!

  632. Natalie says:

    Love your blog! I use several recipes including your carrot cake sheet cake – a fave.
    My favorite Thanksgiving food is the potatoes and gravy and pie and for Christmas it would have to be our family’s avocado dip with fritos corn chips.

  633. Megan says:

    I LOVE eggnog cookies. They can only be made when eggnog is available so they are definitely a one season cookie!

  634. Jill says:

    I love rolls!!

  635. Sara says:

    Sweet potato and apple cassarole! I think I could eat it everyday.

  636. katie says:

    Pumpkin cookies! I love when fall comes and I can rationalize making batch after batch:)

  637. Jessica Z says:

    Just one?! If I had to choose, I’d pick my mom’s french dip sandwiches…a Christmas Eve staple. (Too bad baby is due 8 days later…so we won’t be making the trip…guess I’ll have to make my own…yeah right?!)

  638. beckie says:

    This might sound sad but my favorite holiday meal is hot dogs on halloween. Its a tradition with my mom because they are easy to eat with all the other hubbub. Nothing beats a grilled hot dog, charred to perfection.

  639. queenann says:

    Homemade caramels. Or anything drizzled with loads of caramel.

    Forever.

  640. Candace says:

    Wow, what a great giveaway! My favorite Thanksgiving food is sage sausage stuffing. But I really love them all!

  641. Carlyn says:

    I love fresh pumpkin pie with real whipped cream every year for Thanksgiving. It’s pretty much the only time of the year I eat pie.

  642. Cindy Napier says:

    Toss up between pumpkin pie and eggnog anything! πŸ™‚

  643. Anne Marie says:

    Pumpkin pie with turkey and dressing a very close second – love thanksgiving good!!

  644. I’m a great fan of the honey glazed spiral cut Easter ham. I don’t know why we never have ham throughout the rest of the year, but it’s sure nice at Easter :).

  645. Natalie Hancock says:

    I would have to say my grandmother’s refrigerator orange rolls that we make for Thanksgiving and Christmas! They are have just the right amount of orange.

  646. My favorite holiday meal would have to be Thanksgiving for sure. My favorite part of the meal would have to be my mom’s sweet potato pie. Yum!

  647. Allison H says:

    EVERYTHING! A whole holiday meal from start to finish excites me to no end!

  648. Jocelyn says:

    MMMM Prime Rib on Chirstmas!!

  649. Marisa says:

    I love my grandfather’s peanut brittle. It’s to hot in AZ to make till after Halloween.

  650. Brooke says:

    Love pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting!

  651. Jennifer says:

    For Christmas, my favorite dish is nolish niki, a thin pancake spread with sour cream and jelly that is rolled.

  652. Lisa Z says:

    Look forward to Christmas + Thanksgiving – the entire family and any person who has ever experienced my mom’s (Aunt Anne’s Antipasto! )It’s truly a masterpiece! It weighs about 15 lbs and costs a small fortune to make!
    She pickles her own mushrooms, peppers and eggplant – and adds layers of goodness – mozzarella – salami, proscuitto, olives. gardenier, provolone, ricotta salada and Much more – one large platter on the table and we all dive in – That and some crusty bread a glass of wine and you are set! No one can eat anything after!!!!! Its coming soon!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY

  653. RC says:

    Ohhhh. Right now I’m pregnant and I can’t wait for Thanksgiving! Turkey! Mashed potatoes! Yams! But my baby’s due on Christmas, so right now that’s my favorite holiday, and Christmas just isn’t the same without my mom’s spritz cookies.

  654. Joanna says:

    I love it all…. but the one I’m looking forward to right now is our traditional pumpkin carving dinner: homemade chili served out of a cleaned -out pumpkin, corn bread, with glazed donuts and hot apple cider for desert. YUM!

  655. allison says:

    Favorite holiday food would have to be pumpkin soup on Halloween night… cooked inside of a hollowed out pumpkin in the oven. Delicious!

  656. Val H. says:

    Happy Birthday to sister Emmers!!!!
    Oh wow! Hard to choose. There are many. I love a good standing rib roast for Christmas. For Thanksgiving I love this recipe from Paula Deen…

    Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallow Surprise
    Serves: 8
    Ingredients
    β€’ 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
    β€’ 1/2 cuo heavy cream
    β€’ 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
    β€’ 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    β€’ 1/4 teaspoon salt
    β€’ Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    β€’ 1 cup miniature marshmallows
    β€’ 1/2 cup brown sugar
    β€’ 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
    Steps
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Bake until fork tender, about 45 to 60 minutes. Let rest 5 min. Handling the potatoes with a pot holder, slice each in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out the flesh into the bowl of a food processor leaving a 1/4″ rim of flesh to support the potato skin. To the food processor, add the heavy cream, butter, pumpkin pie spice and salt and pepper. Process until potatoes are silky smooth. (Can also be done by hand with a potato masher.) Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place sweet potato shells on the baking sheet and add a few miniature marshmallows to each shell. Spoon or pipe the puree mixture back into each shell. Sprinkle brown sugar and pecans on top. Bake at 400 degrees until potatoes are hot, about 10 to 12 minutes.

    My Mom’s homemade rolls! Can’t have a Christmas or Thanksgiving with out them!

  661. Kelsi says:

    Cinnamon rolls. There isn’t a particular holiday I associate them with, just cooler weather.

  663. Ange says:

  664. Tarrah Banks says:

  670. Jen M says:

    This would be the coolest giveaway to win ever! I’m crossing my fingers, toes and anything else that will cross to give me good luck…

  671. April McEvoy says:

    I love Turkey with some good mashed potatoes… it is my favorite food of the holidays!

  672. Tara says:

    My grandma’s boston cream candy. If I could only make it like her πŸ™‚

  673. Mary Sorensen says:

    I’m all about Lion House Rolls around Christmas. It seems I get tired of all the sweets, so a hot roll is always a nice treat.

  674. Melissa says:

    It’s going to have to be a toss up between Thanksgiving stuffing (family’s long time recipe, of course) and the gingerbread at Christmas. Thanks!

  675. Erin says:

    I like all Holiday meals, but I LOVE what you can do with the leftovers. Ham and bean soup, turkey pot pie, the sandwitches!Somethings just taste better the next day.

  690. motion de smiths says:

    Difficult to pick just one. I’ll go with caramel apple cake!

  691. AmandaH says:

  696. Jackie says:

    Ooohh, right now it’s anything pumpkin. I just made some delicious pumpkin cupcakes. SOOO good!

  697. Kathy says:

    It’s got to be all of the desserts: pumpkin pie, apple pie, Swedish butter cookies… There’s usually a new recipe or two that is being tried for the first time also. But my most favorite is probably my family’s secret recipe cheesecake.

  698. Brooke says:

    You are awesome and wonderful and I would LOVE a new full sized Bosch (mine is the compact and I have outgrown it, but still love it). My favorite Thankgiving food is the Sweet Potatoes, but I am determined to try your 2 hour Turkey recipe this year. I will let you know how it goes! Soooo excited!

  699. Tanya says:

    My favorite holiday food is the homemade caramels that I make myself!

  700. Tanya says:

    Caramel pecan pie on Thanksgiving – yummmmmmm!

  701. Cara says:

    Mom’s wassail! Warms you up.

  702. Andria says:

    Wow! A Bosch?! I absolutely love stuffing! (Sausage, herb, homemade — the good stuff!) I only have it twice a year because it must be served along side turkey, but I love the stuff. It’s the one food that reminds me of the holidays.

  703. Stacy says:

    OMG this is a toughy..I will go with Thanksgiving. I love pumpkin cheesecake and turkey and stuffing YUM

  704. Kami says:

    Sugar cookies are my absolute favorite, just the smell makes me happy:)

  706. micole says:

    Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle on Easter. Nothing more pretty or tasty on the greatest holiday ever.

    Favorite holiday food- appetizers! Shrimp dip, onion souffle, cheese ball… all the stuff you can’t justify the rest of the year! I love your blog- you have saved me from dinnertime dread!

  709. Megan says:

    Amazing give away! I love holidays in general, but I am sucker for desserts. I would have to say pumpkin pie sums up the holidays for me.

  710. Tasha says:

    My all time favorite is my mom’s Sugar cookies. I have many a fond childhood memories of decorating cookies the week before Christmas to take to neighbors!

  711. Gina Page says:

    Pumpkin Cheesecake for sure!

  712. Penny says:

    No dish says Thanksgiving or Christmas like turkey and dressing. Mmmmmm…

  713. Natalie B says:

    I LOVE anything pumpkin. Pie, bread, pancakes, etc. If it’s made with pumpkin, I’ll eat it!

  714. Ashley Smith says:

    Um…do I really have to choose ONE?!?!?!?! But Thanksgiving is for sure my favorite holiday surrounded by my favorite foods! I make a mean gravy, and love to smother everything in it! Also, I could totally use one of these bosch beauties—it’s been on my wish list since I got married 9 years ago but never have been able to get one! It would seriously be awesome to win one of these mommas!

  715. LeMira says:

    My absolute favorite holiday food has to be my mom’s homemade pies. . .sorry I can’t narrow it down more than that. It was tough enough getting that narrowed.

  716. dawnn says:

    Pumpkin Pie!

  717. Vic Burnham says:

    has to be Pumpkin Cheesecake

  718. Valerie says:

    It would have to be rocky road. It is my favorite candy of all time.

  719. Suz says:

    Stuffing for sure

  720. Z Williams says:

    I love sweet potato pie, nothing says family like my husband’s pie πŸ™‚

  721. Becky T says:

    Oh, how could I possibly narrow this down? I would probably have to go with the classic standby of turkey & mashed potatoes. I start craving them about now and anxiously await the Thanksgiving feast!

  722. Allison says:

    My grandma’s stuffing! We love it so much we eat it at Thanksgiving AND Christmas!

  723. Britney says:

    stuffing for sure. I love it with turkey.

  724. Meagan Gonzalez says:

    Definitely sweet potatoes! And not just on Thanksgiving!

  727. Kristine L. says:

    I love homemade cinnamon and orange rolls on Christmas morning!

  728. Wow would I ever to win this b/c I don’t have one! (hope to have one someday though). My favorite holiday food is Turkey — the moist white meat is divine πŸ™‚ and left-over turkey buns with homemade rolls and a little creamy cucumber dressing is amazing.

  729. Julianne says:

    My Grandma’s fudge is the best and we only make it at Christmas!

  730. April Snell says:

    I love your pomegranate cheesecake. It’s creamy and the crust is so light. Even without the pomegranate I think it’s the best cheesecake recipe.

  731. Janeil says:

    I love my mom’s rolls they go with every holiday!

  732. Sarah says:

    bread any homemade bread

  733. Toss up between my iced butter cookies and meatballs…I’ll go with the iced butter cookies! : )

  734. Jennifer says:

    Wowzers! I’d love me one of those bad boys!

    If I have to pick just one favorite, it would probably be your stuffing recipe drizzled with some gravy! For a sweet favorite I’d choose almond roca.

  735. shellybelly says:

    Danish ableskivers — a tradition every Christmas morn.

  736. Parline Sweet Potato casserole at Thanksgiving! It is the best leftover as well!

  737. Kimberly says:

    My grandmothers green onion cheeseball! It’s always the first thing to dissapear from the pre-holiday-meal “nibbles” counter, and is unanimously adored by family of all ages. One bite, and I remember scenes from so many other Thanksgivings. . . πŸ™‚

  738. Holly Gibb says:

    Hands down Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with buttercream frosting. A-mazing!! P.S. I love your website.

  739. Lisa says:

    That would have to be my mama’s pecan pie-without the pecans. That’s right she makes a small special one just for me. No pecans-just the gooey stuff.

  740. Michelle H says:

    wow! I love pumpkin pie! it wouldn’t be the holiday season without some. πŸ™‚

  741. Carol says:

    My favorite holiday cookie are Spritz — my family made these every year growing up. A great swedish treat!

  742. Kristin Sullivan says:

    Overnight breakfast casserole on Christmas morning πŸ™‚

  743. Jennie says:

    So hard! I think my dad’s Thanksgiving stuffing ranks pretty high. But then again, good old traditional pumpkin pie is pretty up there, too!

  744. Dawn says:

    I’d have to say gingerbread men&women cookies. I look forward every year making, decorating and eating these cookies with my kids.

  745. amber says:

    a honey glazed ham with cheesy potatoes…my mouth waters just thinking about it:)

  746. Kelli says:

    My mom’s cranberry salad makes Christmas. Hands down.

  747. Lindsay says:

    I would have to say peppermint bark – so yummy and SO easy (and SO addicting – I can literally eat an entire batch myself)!

  748. Jill S says:

    I love Halloween food! I love pumpkin anything pie, cookies, donuts, bread etc. Thanksgiving food of course is awesome, home made stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, turkey,yams, yum! I think I would say my favorite is fall food since I just can’t decide between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Fingers crossed I win, and toes because this give away is awesome!

  749. Barbara says:

    Hi Mel, Anything PUMPKIN!!!! There are so many wonderful recipes out there, and every fall I look forward to trying new ones……
    Just made a batch of Pumpkin granola, yummy!!!!!!!!!

  750. Heather says:

    my favorite is my mother in law’s sweet potatoes……… oh and her homemade cranberry sauce, turkey, stuffing, and gravy. she makes the best thanksgiving dinner! can’t to have it again soon.

  751. Jaylene Mosley says:

    I would have to say my mother in laws cheesecake, I keep trying to get her to give me the recipe with no success yet πŸ™

  752. Deborah Brown says:

    Carrot Cake = Yummy

  753. melanie says:

    It’s a toss up. Between stuffing and pumpkin pie. I can’t possibly choose.

  754. Christie says:

    I love Super Bowl food! Bring on the chips and salsa and yummy appetizers! The cookies for dessert are great too!!

  755. Heather Langeland says:

    Christmas morning cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate. Yum!

  758. Gail Tuckey says:

    Pumpkin pie is the best especially at Thanksgiving πŸ™‚

  759. Kathy says:

    cranberry salad!

  760. Jane says:

    This may sound a bit odd, but I am going to say that one of my favorite holiday dishes would be corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day. I had never even had corned beef until someone made it at a dinner group that I was involved in years ago. I was intrigued by this unusual tasting meat. A few years ago, I decided to be brave and tried making it on my own. We now enjoy having it for St. Patrick’s Day along with various side dishes each year. (Of course some of those side dishes are green.)

  761. Laurence Grenier-L. says:

    I love my grandmother mint pie, with a chocolate crust. A perfect tradition for Christmas.

  762. raygon hymas says:

    Wow! What an awesome give away!

    how can I narrow my favorite food down to just one thing? My family makes a traditional English food at Thanksgiving, pasties. They would have to be tops on my list. Not because they taste the best, but because of the history behind them and memories that come along with them.

  763. There is no way I can pick just one favorite! Stuffing, pumpkin pie, and sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving… Matzo ball soup at Passover… mmm, I love holiday food!

  764. Emily H says:

    I love the pumpkin roll! Perfect flavor combo!

  765. Suzette says:

    It is hard to pick just one, but I only make special sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving. I make either sweet potato casser0le with a crunchy topping or layer sweet potatoes with brown sugar, marshmallows, and butter. Both are yummy. I look forward to it every year. My kids always want my special butter rolls.

  766. Dets says:

    At any holiday, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Butter Pecan Fudge!

  767. Brittney says:

    I love all holiday food. But one of my favorites thats a little strange is St Patricks day Corn Beef and Cabbage and fresh rolls. I only eat this meal onces a year on St Patricks day. My family and I celebrate St patties day like our second Thanksgiving its awesome.

  768. Laurie says:

    Fried Turkey, for sure!

    I’ve always wanted one of these, thanks for the chance!!

  769. Cynthia J. says:

    Either pumpkin cheesecake or sweet potato souffle…YUM!

  770. Morgan W. says:

    Oh my goodness, this is the best give away ever!!

    I love Christmas cooking the best. In no way though, is Halloween and Thanksgiving far behind! I just love that there are SO MANY things to make, both sweet and savory, that just remind me of that wonderful time of year!

  771. Amy says:

    I love stuffing and mashed potatoes!

    I would have to say that my grandmothers homemade soft caramel which she uses to make the most delicious turtles

  776. Stephanie Hyer says:

    I love Christmas food. Ham, Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, and rolls. Yummy!

  777. Traci says:

    I will have to agree with you on the gingerbread blondies! They are SOOOOO good…I can’t wait to make a batch!

  778. Erika says:

    Sad but have to say mashed potatoes made with lots of butter, whole milk & sour cream!

  779. Barbara Heymann says:

    My favorite holiday food: CANDY. Doesn’t matter which holiday, there is a candy for it and I LIKE IT! lol

  780. Karlie says:

    My grandmother makes a cranberry, apple and walnut salad every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love, love, love it and look forward to having it all year long!

  781. Amy H. says:

    Thanksgiving food… turkey and grandma’s homemade dressing/stuffing, roasted butternut squash, overnight salad, grandma’s cranberry salad… pumpkin pie… yum! Must start exercising!

  782. Natalie says:

    homemade lion house rolls!

  783. Liesel Marsing says:

    I love my sister’s home made Oreos with orange frosting for Halloween! I love anything Halloween! Boy, do I want that Bosch! My mom has one, and I dream of having one.

  784. scott schluter says:

    Columbus Day Weekend camping with Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!

  785. Kathy says:

    I love Christmas food…unfortunately, more than I should! When I was kid, I would eat and eat and eat of all the great sweets at my grandmother’s on Christmas Day, and then every year, I would be nauseous that night and not able to do any of the fun stuff my cousins were doing.

  786. Alison says:

    My favorite is my grandma’s pecan pie!

  787. Charmaine says:

    Green jello with coolwhip and pears is a holiday staple for my family. It wouldn’t be Christmas without it.

  788. Christina says:

    I’ve been pining for a bosch lately- so generous of you!
    My favorite holiday food rotates, but right now I’m in the mood for some turkey. Can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

  789. Ashley says:

    It would have to be this amazing cranberry cake with butter sauce and whipping cream on top. My mother-in-law introduced it to me and I love it!

  790. Amy Crissman says:

    HAS to be my cookies: Oreo Ganache & Peanut Butter Crunch bon-bons, Lemon Bars, Mocha Crinkles, and my Mother-in-Law’s recipe for English Toffee are everyone’s favorites. I am not allowed to attend any holiday functions without bringing them! I even started a seasonal business last year for corporate and teacher gifts. I made over 2,000 cookies through word of mouth and gave a portion of the proceeds to charity! It was so fulfilling being able to bake AND give back!

  791. Julie T says:

    I love apple cider doughnuts. Which isn’t specific to any holiday other than fall. I love fall!!!

  792. Jaqui Golding says:

    Cinnamon Rolls on Christmas morning, typing this is making me salivate right now. Sooo glad Christmas is right around the corner.

  793. Aaron says:

    Pies, pies, pies. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

  794. Sheryl says:

    I have an amazing recipe for a flourless chocolate mousse cake that you literally beat in the mixer for one hour, and it is SO worth the wait! Half the batter is then is baked, the other half is combined with egg whites and put on top of the cooled baked part and served with a raspberry sauce. Mmmmm….

  795. Sara says:

    I would have to say Sweet Potato Casserole! So not healthy, but so good. Something I look forward to all year! Thanks for the giveaway!

  796. Kim says:

    Well, this is tricky. If we’re talking about the thing I would miss the most if we didn’t have: pecan pie (but I can really only eat a slice or two before it’s too sweet); if it’s the one that I’m craving right now: sweet potato casserole. Mmm, bring on the cold weather holidays!

  797. Carmen says:

    A food that is fairly easy to make: Pecan Pie! It is a rich, decadent treat that I usually only get at Thanksgiving or Christmas.

  798. beth says:

    Christmas Day… My mom is watering thinking about it!
    To drink: bourbon slush…. YUM!
    To appetize: my mom’s blue cheese-cranberry cheeseball or my mother in law’s spanikopita and tiropitas…YUM!
    Dinner: Ceasar salad, beef brisket, green beans with bacon, garlic mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus with parmesean cheese.
    Dessert: homemade chocolate french silk pie. YUM!!
    Followed quickly by a few TUMS and a nap!!!

  799. Kara says:

    Hmmm, I don’t know if it’s just because fall is finally starting to roll in or what, but I sure do love pumkin pie, pumkin break, pumpkin cookies… Yum!

  800. Vittoria says:

    My all time favorite Fall food is pumpkin bread….I guess that goes with Halloween and Thanksgiving!

  801. Garrick says:

    Turkey and ham–the holiday meats

  802. Alison H. says:

    My favorite would have to be my mom’s french silk pie. No matter what I do I can’t make it as yummy as hers. But, I bet a new Bosch would sure help!!

  803. Tawnie says:

    Well, I’ve got three pans of Fall Pumpkin Squares going today. For me, my family, and several neighbors.
    Recipe found here: http://therecipesociety.blogspot.com/2009/10/fall-pumpkin-squares.html
    I want this Bosch!!!!!!
    Thank you.

  804. April says:

    It’s a toss up between my Granny’s green bean casserole (no condensed soups here) and sweet potato casserole (with or without marshmallows, it’s ALL good). I LOVE holiday food! Don’t even get me started on Holiday desserts…

  805. Sarah says:

    My favorite foods change with my mood. But I love our family tradition for Halloween of homemade chili with scones. Great way to send the littles off with their tummies full! I must be in the mood for fall comfort food!

  806. Divya says:

    i love oreo cream pies..for any holiday.. it’s the only time i allow myself to eat it so it’s the one thing i look forward to the most!!

  807. Eric says:

    Bread pudding for sure! Most desserts I can pass up, but I never pass on bread pudding.

  808. Kandi Victorino says:

    I really love the combo of homemade cranberry sauce, stuffing and turkey. it’s a classic for a reason! I love your blog and my family thanks you for all the yummy meals you have introduced to us!

  809. kadie says:

    Well, I have many… but I guess I would have to go with pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting. Oh, or my sister-in-laws rolls. Oh, or frosted sugar cookies…

  810. Tauna says:

    Christmas Caramels are my favorite holiday goodie.

  811. Judith B. says:

    Definitely Southern cornbread stuffing and homemade gravy – eaten at both Thanksgiving and Christmas if I’m lucky! Leftover stuffing, turkey and cranberry sauce the day after holidays – heaven.

  812. Elizabeth says:

    Baked Brie! My mom has made it for years and I tried it a few years ago. Soooo easy and delicious! Totally worth the calories πŸ˜‰

  813. Lisa says:

    My favorite holiday food is gingerbread cookies.

  814. Cindy C. says:

    I always make mini pumpkin bread loafs with brown sugar glaze for Thanksgiving morning. They are heavenly. And the glaze is the best part!!! Happy Thanksgiving…

  815. Rachel says:

    One favorite? I don’t think that’s possible….but if I have to pick one, I’d say leftover turkey sandwiches at Thanksgiving! Yep, I said leftovers πŸ™‚

  816. kim says:

    Halloween sugar cookies with frosting. Yum

  817. Katie S. says:

    Corn casserole…doesn’t sound special but it IS (heavy cream and parmasean cheese…how could u go wrong?!). And if I’m the lucky winner I’ll even share the recipe πŸ˜‰

  818. Mary says:

    Christmas cutout cookies, frosted and decorated. Mmmm…

  819. Rebecca says:

    Snowball cookies for Christmas! Soooo good!

  820. Katherine says:

    pumpkin roll. At thanksgiving. Hands down the best. Yummmmm

  821. Nanci says:

    Apple Pear Crumble Pie I found on the Kraft website. It’s such a yummy twist on regular apple pie.
    http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/apple-pear-crumble-pie-107291.aspx

  822. Katie Larsen says:

    cranberry jello salad!! YUM YUM YUM!

  823. Whitney G says:

    I am polish, so my favorite holiday food would have to be homemade perogie and mushroom borschts!

  824. jill says:

    I love all holiday foods but since Thanksgiving is close all I can think of is my favorite thing… Pumpkin pie with lots of homemade whipped cream

  825. Maria Thorpe says:

    I LOVE your website. It has provided my family with so many wonderful dinners. My favorite holiday dish is my grandmother’s Hershey kiss surprise cookies at Easter time (and sometimes Christmas too). We would make endless amounts and freeze them. Surprisingly, frozen ones were my very favorite. I would sneak them from the freezer all day! I would love a Bosch so I too could make an endless amount of cookies for family and friends πŸ™‚

  826. Ciara says:

    Thnkasgiving dinner is my favorite meal of the whole year. How to pick just one dish?! Let’s see, my mother-in-law’s noddles, sweet potatoes, and green bean casserole are three of my favorites. YUM! Now I am looking forward to November! πŸ™‚

  827. Trina says:

    I would have to say right now it is Pumpkin Cupcakes!!! YUMMY!!

  831. Devonna Skouson says:

    We love sausage mcmuffins with crescent dough, sausage, cheese, cream cheese on Christmas morning. Yum!

  832. els says:

    pecan pie… hands down! Love most pie’s. But pecan is my fave….! At least around the winter holidays!

  833. Mary says:

    My favorite thing to make or eat is sweet potato souffle. A close second would be my mom’s stuffing!

  834. Megan says:

    Stuffing. Yum.

  835. Erin says:

    Pumpkin Rolls for Thanksgiving OR Toffee for Christmas!

  836. Camille says:

    Pumpkin Bars at Halloween…mmm, mmm, mmm. And they’re topped with cream cheese icing–delish!! I can’t wait to make them this season!

  837. Jennifer says:

    New York Style CheeseCake!! YUM

  838. Ashlee says:

    I love it all but Christmas would not be Christmas without Red Raspberry slush!

  839. Ryan says:

    Our family tradition has always been Poppy Seed Bread as a Christmas gift. I’m not sure if that wins or Chimichanga’s for Christmas Eve dinner.

  840. Janet H says:

    Hi I’m Janet, and love to visit My Kitchen Cafe everyday! I put your site on my bookmark tool bar, thank you for your wonderful pictures and recipes.
    Oh yum! A holiday favorite is definitely Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Icing. My dear husband, God rest his precious soul, hated pumpkin pie (pecan pie for the southern in him)…..but……he would eat these bars willingly: http://eatwheat.com/cookbook1/view_recipe.php?id=44

  841. Lizzy Stevens says:

    I love my mom’s homemade cranberry desert with carmel sauce on top. It is a highlight for all of us come Thanksgiving day! I absolutely LOVE your blog! Thanks for the giveaway!

  842. Patti says:

    My favorite is Thanksgiving cake – a rich pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting!

  843. Emily Deibel says:

    Nothing tastes better than the Christmas Eve prime rib roast smothered with gravy from the pan drippings.

  844. dana d says:

    My favorite holiday dish would have to be pumpkin pie. It seems like every other holiday dish I make I also make at some point during the year. Pumpkin pie is only at Thanksgiving, it makes me love it all the more. Is it Thanksgiving yet? Please?!

  845. sheri A. says:

    I love all things Thanksgiving: turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes pies….

  846. Judith Rabinsky says:

    My favorite holiday food is easy……stuffing and gravy…..the stuffing made with the best semolina, raisin bread and rye without seeds. You have to try it!

  847. Your Fave Sis-in-law EVER says:

    Oh man. My favorite Holiday food? Uhh… My moms “funeral” potatoes.

    And…. HOLY COW 849 comments! You are so popular!

  848. Katy says:

    My mom’s turkey stuffing made from her gorgeous breads! Mmm… it’s a 3-day project, but I think about it all year long!

  849. Ty Gray says:

    All foods in general are my faves! I just love to eat, but sweets are of course me favorite…but I must say the Pomegranate cheesecake sounds heavenly…I would love to use a new bosch to mix it up. I have been going to classes at the Bosch store and have a ton of recipes given there that I would love to try!

  850. Whitney says:

    Pumpkin Cranberry Chocolate cookies were my mother’s specialty for the holidays. They’re amazing!

  851. Meredith says:

    Pick a favorite?? Is that even possible. I have way too many. But I love the traditional pumpkin pie with whip cream!! So delicious!

  852. Rebecca says:

    Oh, goodness just one? My mother-in-law is an amazing cook, she has encouraged me to deepen my love for cooking. I would have to say her cornbread dressing and creamed corn are my faves. Sorry, I just couldn’t possibly narrow it down to one!
    I absolutely love your blog! I love that you don’t use processed foods and creamed soups (which are just one big can of MSG and junk) in your recipes. Two of which I have eliminated from our house. I rave about your blog to all my friends!

  853. Cory says:

    Definitely stuffing at Thanksgiving — there are so many great recipes out there, and I love them all!!

  854. Natalie says:

    Pecan Pie. Hands down.

  855. Melissa says:

    smoked turkey!!!
    and candy cane cookies!!

  856. Ann says:

    Mom’s cranberries and dressing

  857. Lynette says:

    My mom’s blueberry cream cheese layered jello. Sounds funny, but it brings back some of my favorite childhood memories.

  858. Tiffany says:

    It’s hard to choose… I love Christmas Eve dinner because the excitement of Christmas is so close. The peppermint ice cream cake I always make is a fun tradition, too. Then Christmas morning my sister-in-law makes some fabulous homemade croissants. I usually eat at least four! πŸ™‚

  859. Tricia says:

    I’d have to say stuffing. It’s the best!

  860. Alison Klein says:

    Either molasses cookies that I only make at Christmas-time, or mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving.

  861. Tricia says:

    I LOVE pumpkin pie!!

    Oops, forgot to mention, these pumpkin bars are low fat, have some whole wheat flour that you can’t even taste, and are still fabulously tasty!!!!
    Hi I’m Janet, and love to visit My Kitchen Cafe everyday! I put your site on my bookmark tool bar, thank you for your wonderful pictures and recipes.
    Oh yum! A holiday favorite is definitely Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Icing. My dear husband, God rest his precious soul, hated pumpkin pie (pecan pie for the southern in him)…..but……he would eat these bars willingly: http://eatwheat.com/cookbook1/view_recipe.php?id=44

  884. Melissa says:

    I love prime rib and Christmas is the ONLY time we have it-yum!

  885. Michelle says:

    Holy Cow. This giveaway proves how stinkin awesome your site is!? I swear I’ve sent half the peeps here because I’m constantly raving about it.

    My favorite: Ableskiever (Danish pastry).

    I LOVE Bosh and I LOVE that you are GIVING one away. You are the best. Why can’t we live next to each other??

  886. Danyelle says:

    I can’t wait for the leftover turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce!! And all the treats (namely pumpkin pie and cheesecake!!)

  889. Celeste B. says:

    That is a tough question. Iwill have to go with my homemade creamed corn.

  890. Lori Conran says:

    I LOVE hot chocolate- not really a food, but a drink works right? We have all different types of flavorings to add when we’re feeling like a little extra kick. Yum!

  891. Lisa says:

    Love your site! I have gotten so many good ideas from you. My favorite holiday food is usually pumpkin pie, but I’m pregnant and can’t stand the sight or smell of it this year. I’m going to go with stuffing. Keep up the good work, Mel!

  892. MaryAnn says:

    I love everything about Christmas, but most especially the holiday baking and yummilicious recipes I allow my self to eat but this time of year only πŸ™‚ I would say my favorite holiday treat is the cinnamon sticky buns I’ve made before. This recipe uses butterscotch pudding, cinnamon, butter, and pecans to make the best tasting, gooiest buns ever! My mouth is just watering thinking about it, and being pregnant, it’s really tough to fight those cravings!

  893. Shonni says:

    I love cranberry cake on Christmas Eve. You serve it warm with a rich, buttery sauce and it is just divine!

  894. Sheri says:

    Hard to narrow it down to just one food. . . I love all the holiday sweets, so I’m going with my grandmother’s Raisin Bars. Mmmmmmm!

  895. Kim says:

    I love Easter. My favorite season is Spring and Easter weekend always seems to be the start of Spring weather. I love that we celebrate the Savior’s resurrection which is the greatest gift that any of us have ever received.

  896. Jamie says:

    My mom’s clam dip at christmastime πŸ™‚

  897. Britney Quarnberg says:

  899. Elizabeth says:

    I have a favorite Thanksgiving recipe that combines yams and apples. Love it!

  900. Joelle says:

    I think it’s for sure chocolate pumpkin bread!

  901. Toni Lawton says:

    I always look forward to Christmas…not only to watch the children’s faces, but also the Pumpkin Cheesecake…Yummy!

  902. Kate Giles says:

    I LOVE my mothers homemade pumpkin chocolate chip bread. It is great anytime between Halloween and New Years. The perfect way to tie all the best holidays together!

  903. Deb says:

    PUMPKIN PIE!!!!!!!! Though I’m sure after trying some of the great looking recipes on your page – I’m bound to find new ones too!!!

  904. Tia says:

    Oh, that is a tough one. Since it is Fall and I can’t think of anything right now outside the “cozy and comfy” category, I’m going to have to say Southwestern black bean chili served with tortilla chips and then chased by a warm apple cider donut.

  905. Kim says:

    Mine is definetly my moms scones. Every Christmas morning we have scrambled eggs, honey baked ham and her unbelievable homemade scones! Love them!

    oh definately Thanksgiving feast!! Since i can remember my favorite foods have been pomegranate salad and sweet potatoe soufflet! makes my mouth water just thinking about them:)

    Fresh Peach Cake (which I tried for the first time last night)
    Pumpkin Cake
    Pumpkin Bread
    Pumpkin Cookies
    …yum!

  914. Jamie says:

    My favorite is gingerbread with whipped cream. Nothing beats it at Christmas. Thanks for all of your recipes and tips…

  915. Heather says:

    It’s a tough decision, but probably Thanksgiving with a nice, warm apple pie!

  916. jennika says:

    Shoot. after reading all of your favorites my mind is picking up a blank. I love a good carmel. Why is it that we only have them around Christmas time? Last year I said I was going to change that tradition, but I haven’t yet. I also love Chocolate chip cheeseballs. yum yum!

  917. Lisa says:

    Christmas breakfast casserole!! It wouldn’t be Christmas morning without it!!

  918. Kira says:

    My grandparents Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix. Each Christmas we receive a large container to last us through the cold winter. So great to have it in the pantry all winter long! We love it so much we make it for friends and neighbors as our Christmas gift. (And just to paint you a little picture; we deliver it on a sleigh pulled by my parents minature horse-who, of course, is wearing sleigh bells! Oh, how the kids love that horse! Can’t wait to share the cocoa again.)

  919. jill says:

    my mom’s homemade pierogies on Christmas Eve.

  920. Gail says:

    I would have to say I love my grandmother’s stuffing made with sausage and oysters….as well as good old buttery mashed potatoes! Though I love a good snow pie!! (cream cheese, whipped topping and marshmallow cream, does it get much better?)

  921. Kara Hone says:

    So hard to pick my favorite holiday food….I love 7-layer dip ( a Christmas eve tradition at our house), warm cinnamon rolls, gingerbread bars…too many to choose. I would be so excited if I actually won a give-a-way! Thanks for your consistently yummy recipies.

  922. Heather says:

    pumpkin pie…I am so glad Thanksgiving is almost here.

    Have you tried the pumpkin spice late from starbuck’s?!?!?!
    IT IS AMAZING. I am going to be sad when they don’t sell them any longer, but then I move on to peppermint mocha:)

    Thanks for doing this givaway. LOVE LOVE LOVE your site. so does my hubby:)

  923. Corinne says:

    My moms homemade spaghetti sauce that we eat with our traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Makes me feel like a little girl again.

  924. Melissa says:

    I make Ruth’s Chris sweet potato casserole and it has got to be my favorite. Well that and pumpkin pie, stuffing, and too many other things! I love your blog. Everything I make from it has been wonderful!

  925. Kristen Call says:

    I love the thanksgiving! I mean honestly when else do we devote a day to stuffing ourselves with the best foods out there. I love the Thanksgiving desserts, my Grandma’s homemade ice cream with pie, yummy!

  926. Heidi says:

    I have a favorite holiday food for each holiday, but I won’t list them all for your sake πŸ™‚ I will just pick one and since Halloween is close, that is my pick. My favorite treat on Halloween is the good ‘ole Pumpkin Roll. YUM!

  927. mandy says:

    my aunt’s sweet potatoes with corn flakes!!!! I haven’t had them in a while b/c we have been going to my husband side for holidays and I MISS THOSE!!!!

  928. Shauntel says:

    One of my favorite holiday foods is my mom’s Halloween chili. However, I really don’t love Halloween, so I choose my mom’s pumpkin roll that only makes an appearance once at Christmas, making it all the more anticipated and yummy.

  929. Jenny says:

    I have been begging for a Bosch to my husband for quite some time now. My mom’s cinnamon rolls are a hit at Christmas. She makes pans and pans of them to hand out to old friends.

  930. Amanda C says:

    cherry pie or our new years eve fondue!

  931. Our family tradition is to make Aebleskivers for Christmas morning! They’re basically a fabulous butter-delivery device…but we love them!

  932. Jamie says:

    It’s a definite 3 way tie between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning! Thanksgiving is my mom’s Pecan Pie; Christmas Eve is Mom’s Ramaki (water chestnuts wrapped in bacon and baked in a delicious sauce – I burn my tongue every year because as soon as they come out of the oven, I sneak one); and Christmas morning is my Grandmother’s Egg-Sausage casserole – even though Grandma has been gone a long time, we still have it every Christmas morning! I even recall one year when she tried to do something different, everyone protested, we had to have our egg-sausage casserole!!

  933. Amy B says:

    I look forward to the homemade rolls and i eat so many that I am a bit ashamed! (so worth the extra Jillian Michaels I have to endure)

  934. Melissa says:

    banana cream pie at Thanksgiving. so delish!

  935. Ann Bradley says:

    I love eggnog!!! From pumpkin spice for halloween all the way to the classic stuff for Christmas. Yummmy!

  936. melanie says:

    Mine has to be my Halloween Cinnamon rolls with hot wassil. I give them out every year to moms and dads that are trudging along with there kidos. I think they desrve a treat also. My trick is to add 1 tsp nutmeg to my dough. YUMMY.

  937. connie newell says:

    My absolute favorite holiday (heck, who needs a holiday?) food is a jello “thing” I make. It has jello, creamed cheese, whipping cream; NOT for the faint of heart or a calorie counter. You can use any flavor/color of jello to rationalize making it for that holiday. The first time I had it I was visiting a cousin and found myself getting up so many times that night just to have a little bite that by morning the bowl was empty!!!
    BTW, you can add nuts or pineapple or whatever to it. There’s just no way to ruin this. Well, I suppose you could add anchovies or snails, but short of those, it is always yummy!!!

  938. Joseph says:

    Hot Apple Cider!

  939. Heidi says:

    I love my mom’s “Yummy Yams”–which are actually sweet potatoes in a heavenly orange sauce. Sweet bliss. Mmm!

  940. Laurie says:

    I’d have to say any kind of Christmas cookie that reminds me of the ones my grandmother used to make for me when I was little. I think of all of them, the thumbprint cookie with jam in the middle and crushed pecans on the outside is my favorite.

  941. Kristin says:

    I would have to say pies! The chocolate silk, pear pie, pumpkin pie, and peach pie. I love a good pie and they fit right in for the winter holidays!

  942. Roxane says:

    Whipped sweet potatoes or my mom’s homemade fudge.

  943. Robyn says:

    Mine is the stuffing with cranberry sauce. I love the two paired together. This is a really hard question, just picking one! My favorite holiday dessert I love pumpkin pie

  944. Melanie says:

    My Mom’s rolls are by far my favorite!!!

  945. Jan K says:

    Oooo, pick me pick me. I’ve wanted one for soooo long!! My favorite holiday food is fudge. And there are so many variations and ways of making different flavors. Yum!

  946. Oh my goodness. I would adore one of these. With it, I would eternally make these rolls: http://placetobloom.blogspot.com/2009/11/my-favorite-rolls.html

    Or maybe I wouldn’t…I’m not sure my waistline would ever forgive me.

    Thanks a million!

  947. Jennifer H. says:

    Wowza! What a giveaway! My favorite holiday food is a dish called Onion Shortbread…it’s a family recipe that we only make on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. It wouldn’t be a holiday without it!! It’s similar to a corn pudding – soft cornbread like texture with corn and cheese mixed in, but then it’s topped with a mixture of sauteed red onions, butter, dill and sour cream then baked and topped with extra cheddar cheese. I’m telling you, it’s the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth!!

  948. Alison Arnold says:

    I love anything pumpkin!

  949. Bethany Cole says:

    I love to make Chocolate Covered Peanut Clusters for my family at Christmas!

  950. melissa says:

    Pecan pie. Despised it without even trying it as a kid. It is now my favorite dessert.

  951. Aubrie says:

    I don’t know if I can pick just one, but one of my favorites would have to be these Mini Pumpkin Turtle Cheesecakes. I crave them all year long and can’t wait until Thanksgiving so I can have an excuse to make them!

    http://bezzants.blogspot.com/2008/11/mini-pumpkin-turtle-cheesecakes.html

  952. Carrie says:

    my favorite holiday food would definitely be Thanksgiving mashed potatoes with gravy. But I also love all the desserts and treats from Christmas time. Party mixes, cheese balls, cookies…….mmmmm I love holiday food!

  953. Kensi says:

    My great aunt makes a wonderful 10 layer cake every Christmas and I always look forward to eating more than 1 slice of it! Thanks for the chance in an awesome giveaway!

  954. Peanut butter pie with pretzel crust – Yum!

  955. Suzanne Fox says:

    Love the foods associated with Thanksgiving(gonna be making your 2-hr turkey this year!)-but even more the pecan pie that I make every year as one of the desserts-my husband and my dad’s favorite pie!

  956. JoAnn says:

    Eggnog. I would drink that stuff all year long if I could.

  957. Emily says:

    I love warm Pani Po Po on a cold Christmas morning. Ultimate comfort food

  958. Melanie Maughan says:

    It’s the stuffing and Caramel pull-a-parts!

  959. Robyn says:

    My favorite would definitely be fresh homemade buns…especially the next day with left over turkey!!

    The day after Thanksgiving we go Christmas tree hunting and have raspberry cinnamon rolls for breakfast that morning.

  962. Cristy says:

    I would definitely have to say buttermilk biscuits

  963. Lori says:

    I love stuffing at Thanksgiving! Specifically my mother in law’s stuffing, but we have pretty much figured out her recipe and can make our own. It is very simple…white bread, butter, stock, onions, celery and eggs. But oh so yummy! I also LOVE love love LOVE any kind of bread so this Bosch would be great for homemade rolls and bread!!

  964. Jessica says:

    Green bean casserole and my father-in-laws fried turkey! Yummers!

  965. CraftyAshley says:

    Halloween Chili and Cornbread! It’s a family tradition- and much better than those ol’ Thanksgiving Turkeys and Christmas Hams.

  966. Brook says:

    My fave holiday food has to be rolls!! They go with every holiday feast and make me happy!!

  967. Sarah F. says:

    I woke up this morning dreaming about a nice thick slice of cranberry-pumpkin bread, all slathered with butter.

  968. Melissa says:

    I love food, so to narrow it down to one thing is hard! I love spiral ham (your crock-pot recipe!) at Easter and Christmas. I love all kinds of pie and homemade rolls. I also love frosted sugar cookies at Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter!

  969. Carly says:

    Holy smokes, I want a Bosch!!

    I love my mom’s carmels at Christmas. And baked carrots at Thanksgiving. And homemade bread made with a Bosch any day of the week!

  970. Jessica says:

    Green Bean Casserole, My Father-in-law’s fried turkey, and my great grandma’s carmels…Yummers!

    The peanut butter balls we make every Christmas. They are always a big hit.

  974. Marla says:

    Definitely would be cranberry relish. Yum!

  975. Darci says:

    My very favorite are the Cardamom rolls that are part of our Christmas eve smΓΆrgΓ₯sbord. I crave them all year long. I have yet to master the art of making them but maybe a Bosch would help with that πŸ™‚

  976. Meranda Peterson says:

    My new favorite is an Italian twist on Thanksgiving! Turkey Cranberry Ravioli served with a Sage cream sauce! They are awesome!!!

  977. Sharon says:

    I love homemade pies on Thanksgiving…along with all of the other yummy foods =)

  978. jen kerr says:

    Pumpkin Gingerbread trifle-could life get ANY better???

  979. kari says:

    My favorite holiday food has to be stollen! A Bosch mixer would certainly make my stollen baking easier. πŸ™‚

  980. Katie Murray says:

    Thanksgiving- My Mother-In-Law’s yeast rolls are heaven.

  987. Sarah says:

    Probably my grandma’s hot rolls.

  988. Kathy says:

    Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday — now to choose between pumpkin pie and stuffing — I just can’t choose one over the other!

  989. Jordan McArthur says:

    my Grandma’s famous rolls at thanksgiving!

  990. Lisa says:

    It might sound wierd but it is not Christmas Eve without coke jello. I also loves my moms rolls for thanksgiving.

  991. Jenny Park says:

    I will save the children but the hubby better save the photos and my bosch. My mom has wanted on forever so if I win I would love to give it to her for her birthday…she is one of those tragic people with birthdays near Christmas and this could make things right…hehe! I just made your deep dark brownies and 1/3 of the pan is now in my belly (forever)…or until I do those 3 extra hours of cardio I keep saying I will…hehe!

  992. Jenna says:

    Pumpkin Pie hands down!

  993. Jennifer M. says:

    Hands down, Stuffing! But not any stuffing, just my Grandmothers recipe. Yum, yum!

  994. Katie Jones says:

    Well………….it simply would not be Thanksgiving without Berry Pretzel Jello!!! YUMMMY!

    Forgot to say that my favorite food is all of your recipes that my wife turns into diabetic friendly ones…they have all turned out great!

(grin) I cannot help but bake at least 24 dozen cookies at Christmas – seems like every family member has their favorite that they absolutely MUST have or it isn’t christmas for them. This little beauty would definitely lighten my task of holiday baking love!! Keeping my fingers crossed that Lady Luck is with me on this. Again – WOW – and thank you for your generosity! LOVE YOUR BLOG!

  1003. Kate Larsen says:

    My favorite Holiday Dish is Warm Pumpkin bars with Cinamon Struessel

  1004. Shari says:

    I love pumpkin pie and I love this pretzel, raspberry dessert thing…it’s amazing. Thanks for the chance to win a bosch!

  1005. Dorean says:

    Pumpkin bread!! Oh and something that isn’t technically “homemade” – Peppermint Bark from Costco – heaven!

  1006. Pam says:

    Ahhh at Thanksgiving I love Sweet Potatoes! Any style!

  1007. Whitney Wilding says:

    I have to go with candied yams. I only eat them once a year at Thanksgiving because I allow myself to splurge on such a decadent side like that on Thanksgiving!

  1008. Katie says:

    Oh wow! I am so excited!! Gotta love a yummy pumpkin roll anytime during the Holidays! Ok, maybe more than one time.

  1009. Lisa Holmgren says:

    Creamies! I’m not sure of the real name that’s just what we call them. Little creamy candies with a walnut on top!

    Grilling on the 4th of July, mouth watering, fall off the bone Ribs.

  1015. Kali says:

    I was having a hard time deciding, until I thought about my Grandmother’s Banana Cream Pie. No other pie (banana cream or otherwise) can compare. Thanksgiving isn’t complete without it.

  1016. Mandy K says:

    My grandmas cheeseball recipe tops the list!!!

  1017. Gretchen says:

    The assortment of Christmas cookies waiting for us when we arrive at my parents house. Snickerdoodles, pizzelles, chocolate chip… oh Christmas, hurry up and get here!

  1018. Heidi says:

  1023. Natalie says:

    Christmas and anything chocolate!!!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  1024. Noelle Tomco says:

    My favorite holiday food is definitely anything warm and gooey. For some reason i let myself eat things all winter long that i try to steer away from the rest of the year; pies, cakes, cinnamon rolls, stuffing, brownies, rolls, etc. bring them on.

  1025. Charisse says:

    I totally go ga-ga for thanksgiving turkey and cranberry sauce. My absolute favorite thing is to make a turkey, cranberry (with a little mayo) sandwich the next day after thanksgiving. Sometimes, I even make an extra turkey just to have more sandwich meat!

  1026. Kortney Terry says:

    Homemade chicken noodle soup over mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving! And all the sweet yummies for Christmas. Cinnamon rolls, caramels, fudge! I love holidays!!!! I love Bosch! Pick me pick me!!

  1027. Becky Loyd says:

    My family is Norwegian and we would always have Lefsa at Christmas time! My Mom has a bosch and made so many great things in it when I was growing up. I’d like to think I would be a better cook/baker like she is if I had one. One could wish anyway. πŸ™‚

  1028. Janene says:

    Homemade donuts on Halloween night — handed out to all the neighbors and their children.

  1029. Chibi Jeebs says:

    The pumpkin pie (read: vehicle with which to put whipped cream in my pie hole) that comes with Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚

  1030. Toni says:

    My favorite would have to be the hand rolled raviolis I make for Christmas Eve dinner. Oh, and the Harvest Pear Salad we have with it!

  1031. Valerie says:

    My favorite holiday food is fresh homemade rolls. Warm homemade rolls with homemade honey butter or cran-raspberry butter can make any day seem like a holiday!

  1032. My favorite holiday food is the Buttermilk Scones with honey butter I make on Christmas morning.

  1033. Tenay Hill says:

    So many choices. I love stuffing and my Mom’s Rolls at Thanksgiving and Fudge…lots of fudge at Christmas. Yum. I can’t wait!

  1034. Linda O says:

    So hard for me to pick which is my favorite! However, I will go with my favorite Christmas cookie my family makes every year……Kolachkies!
    There are a lot of different variations for these cookies but I have yet to taste one that is better than my families receipe. It has been handed down for generation to generation.

  1035. Amy says:

    Ok, this may seem lame.. but I seriously love homemade mashed potatoes with the yummy turkey gravy. Rarely do we have mashed potatoes because it takes too long with some real homemade gravy (no packets!)

  1036. Kelsey says:

    I LOVE anything Pumpking. I also LOVE sweet potato anything- casserole, pie, salad. You name it, I love it.

  1037. Brandi says:

    Mmmmm…so many to choose from. My family makes a to die for corn casserole…stuffed with sweet corn and gooey jack cheese goodness. It’s Holiday heaven!

  1038. Adrienne says:

    I love all things pumpkin: cookies, bread, muffins, cake….

  1039. I LOVE anything with pumpkin in it – pumpkin rolls, cookies, cheesecake – ANYTHING!

  1040. Tisha says:

    I would have to see my Granny’s sweet potatoe pie! OMG it is so good! I can’t duplicate the recipe, and believe me, I have tried.

  1041. Megan says:

    Homemade whole wheat bread…it makes any day like a holiday but especially good on Halloween night with soup!

  1042. Sarah says:

    Pick me! Pick me!! πŸ™‚ Anything with pumpkin…pumpkin bars, pumpkin roll, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie. You get my drift… πŸ™‚

  1043. Holly Casper says:

    My favorite holiday food is Eggs Golden Rod… It is a creamy white sauce with diced up hard-boiled eggs mixed in served over hot toast! We eat this every Easter and Christmas morning! Only half of us have been able to keep the tradition alive with our own families now and I am one of the lucky ones whose family loves it too πŸ™‚

  1044. Rachel Adams says:

    I love Tomales for Christmas Eve. Something about it just works so well.

  1045. Claudia says:

    Thanksgiving Dinner! Turkey, mashed potatoes, bread and of course dessert!

  1046. Ivette says:

    I think my favorite would have to be Baklava!

  1047. Bethany says:

    My favorite holiday food is definitely my mom’s Christmas fudge {which would be so much easier to make with this Bosch!!! I seriously have been trying to figure out a way to afford one so I don’t have to mix the fudge by hand with a wooden spoon anymore. So. Difficult.}.

    I definitely have my fingers and toes crossed for this one! Thank you for the chance!

  1048. Heather says:

    Pumpkin cookies, hands down! (or pumpkin brownies…. pretty much, anything pumpkin!!)

  1049. Lisa says:

    Home made Christmas candy, especially my mother in laws or my grandmothers’ fudge with walnuts – both are irresistible!

  1050. llinsley says:

    My favorite holiday is Christmas my granddaughter and I always work together making cookies for gifts and family gatherings. My favorite food for Christmas has to be my homemade stuffing. My granddaughter loves pumpkin pie and could eat a whole one by herself.

  1051. Shanna says:

    Cranberry salsa over cream cheese is one of my new favorites as well as our Christmas Eve traditional Beef Dip (deli beef, cream cheese, sour cream, etc.)

  1052. Suburban Prep says:

    I love pumpkin crisp at Thanksgiving.

  1053. Jeannine Q says:

    I love apple butterscoth bread

  1054. Makelle says:

    My favorite food is stuffed mushrooms we always have at Thanksgiving. I look forward to them and should make quadrauble the amount I usually do.

  1055. Susan says:

    Pumpkin anything!!
    mmmm πŸ™‚

  1056. amy Ellsworth says:

    Mine is dinner in a pumpkin. Every October, I make this dish. Simply, clean out a pumpkin, remove seeds, and then fill with rice which has cream of mushroom soup, ground hamburger, water chestnuts, celery, and more. I can give you complete recipe if interested. It is fabulous, and you can eat the pumpkin meat like squash with it.

  1057. Kennedy says:

    My Mom’s Scottish Sausage Rolls every New Years Eve. Can’t Wait!

  1058. Stephanie says:

    I love Thanksgiving foods!

  1059. Krissy says:

    My sister -in-laws delicious orange rolls smothered in orange glaze. Wow, they are to die for. We ask her to make them almost every holiday in the fall and winter. I eat them til I can’t eat any more!

  1060. Heidi says:

    I always look forward to my Mom’s yummy
    Crab Ball on Christmas Day.

  1061. Vicki Edgington says:

    It has got to be Sweet Potatoe Casserole!! It is so beyond not healthy, but is a family favorite. I even double the topping because it is so good and if you’re going to do it, you might as well go all out!! I go to the Bosch store at least once a month just to drool over the mixers!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your recipes!! Thanks for making my food taste so good!!

  1062. nicole says:

    pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Make them every year around halloween and Thanksgiving.

  1063. Julie says:

    So hard to pick, gotta be the pumpkin pie!

  1064. Julie Williams says:

    My fav holiday food is egg nog with shortbread cookies.

  1065. Lisa says:

    I change my mind daily, but right now I’m thinking my favorite is Thanksgiving/Christmas morning hoeur d’evours– while we’re smelling the wafts of juicy turkey cooking and waiting in anticipation. Some of my favorites would have to be pepper jelly on cream cheese served with crackers, or grandma’s homemade emerald green sweet pickles! YUM!

    After the Thanksgiving or Christmas feast I also LOVE to eat my mom’s turkey rolls. The BEST way to use turkey leftovers– sometimes I just make them with chicken to have all year round. Turkey, mushrooms, herb cream cheese, rolled in crescent roll dough, rolled in butter, rolled in mashed stuffing mix and spices, rolled in nuts, and baked. Then.. as if that wasn’t decadent enough, serve it with cranberry sauce and a little gravy.. ahhhhh!!

  1066. Michelle says:

    Wow. I’m at a loss. Too many to narrow down! Ummm…how about peanut butter balls, fudge, cornbread stuffing with craisins, sausage and pecans, pecan and pumpkin pie, GINGERBREAD, garlic and green olive dip, orange rolls, the list goes on and on and on……this is making me excited for the holidays!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  1067. Amy Maires says:

    I love caramel ANYTHING! Which recipes usually start showing up at Halloween and go all the way through New years!

  1068. Susan Eardley says:

    Hands down, has to be pumpkin cheesecake that I always make for Christmas. Who doesn’t love cheesecake?

  1069. Brigette says:

    gotta go with the pumpkin cheesecake pie!

  1070. Peggy says:

    It would have to be the crescent shaped dinner rolls I make for every special family dinner. Been making them for 30 years with my trusty Bosch. I couldn’t live without it either, but I’d sure love an update and I know my daughter-in-law would be happy to inherit mine. I’m an old cook but I love trying new things and your website is just the thing. Love it!

  1071. suzie says:

    My favorite is pretty boring, just plain old fashioned herb stuffing!! With gravy please!!

  1072. Stacie says:

    Your white velvet sugar cookies for valentines day have become a family tradition! YUM!

  1073. Becky Howlett says:

    We have Prime Rib for Christmas every year!!

  1074. Lucy says:

    My favorite holiday food is probably homemade rolls. The smell of yeast dough rising and fresh baked rolls is one of my favorites.
    You are so kind to do a Bosch giveaway. (Reading your blog has caused me to start saving up for one.)
    Thank you and hooray for the beginning of the holiday season!

  1075. Kelly Lundy says:

    I love all foods Thanksgiving. Yum!!!

  1076. Adena R Jensen says:

    For Sure Thanksgiving ever since i was about 7 i’ve slept at my Grandmothers and help her with the big feast. i love this Tradition and i hope to one day be able to to this with my own grandaughters. But not anytime soon my baby is only 1…..ha ha. my grandmother taught me how to make rolls so this is one of the many things we to together for thanksgiving dinner so this would be a fabulous win for me.

  1077. Annika says:

    Anything pumpkin. I just bought 14 cans of it at the grocery store today!!!!!!!!

  1078. Kim says:

    Okay so my chances of winning are pretty slim but I still got to try, my mom had a Bosch that I used when I was learning to bake and I loved it!! I would love to have one, can’t afford one!
    My favorite holiday food is turkey, we usually only have it during the holiday season and I really love it, fresh on the day of, in turkey sandwhiches, turkey soup, yum!!!

  1079. Erin says:

    I love roasted turkey and mashed potatoes. Especially for Thanksgiving. And again for Christmas if I can get away with it.

  1080. Kate says:

    My favorite is my Great Grandma’s recipe for molasses crinkles…. or possibly my mom’s cream cheese pumpkin roll. mmmm!

  1081. Holly says:

    Homemade orange rolls are a Thanksgiving must!!

  1082. Christi says:

    My favorite would definitely be buttermilk pie!

  1083. Niky says:

    Did you know that the average person puts on about 8-10 pounds over the holiday season? You realize this epidemic is in part due to people like you who are in love with food making machines! I have a confession to make…I am in love with all kinds of food making machines! Do they provide counseling for this type of addiction…
    Halloween gets me every year. We have chili and cornbread to warm up before venturing out with the ghosts and goblins. Then we return home and need to warm up again with hot cocoa and donuts…and of course I need to examine my children’s candy and do a taste test to make sure it is suitable for them to partake ; )

  1084. Tiffani says:

    My favorite holiday food? Do I have to choose? Pretty much anything with Pumpkin does me in.

    I have a Bosch and I absolutely love it, but this would make one fantastic gift!!

  1085. Tara says:

    Definitely stuffing. But not just any stuffing. My mother’s stuffing. I make it myself, and it’s good, but when she makes it, it’s MUCH better! Haven’t had hers in years now, but I can conjure up the taste pretty much any time!

  1086. Amber says:

    Oh it is so hard to choose but I would have to say anything pumpkin but pumpkin pie I could eat everyday!

  1087. Jenna Davis says:

    Melanie,
    My favorite holiday is hard to pick because I love it all, but something I can never say no to is pumpkin brownies with white chocolate chips, oh yeah!

  1088. amy says:

    love mashed potatoes on thanksgiving!

  1089. Jenny says:

    I look forward to orange cranberry cookies every year!

  1090. Kerri says:

    Oh … how do I choose? It would have to be my mom’s entire Christmas Turkey Dinner … wait, my favorite food … STUFFING. No, it would be pie. No, it would be the turkey and gravy. Aahhhh, ok – stuffing it is. Whew, that was hard! πŸ™‚

  1091. Amy Webber says:

    My Mom’s Waldorf Red Cake with Buttercream Frosting, but more than the cake, I love being together with family for holidays and celebrations.

  1092. Ken says:

    My sweet potato casserole.

  1093. Ashley Wood says:

    Wow!! What a sweet giveaway. My favorite holiday food is curry on Christmas night. Weird tradition I know, but it is delicious. Also I love homemade crepes with peach sauce Christmas morning.

  1094. Crystal says:

    Stuffing! I look forward to it all year. (Why don’t I just make it at other times?!) So yummy. It is hard to decide though the holidays are filled with a never ending variety of delicious food!

  1095. My favorite thanksgiving treat is pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

  1096. Tara says:

    Quick and easy sticky buns on Christmas morning. YUM!

  1097. Marie says:

    I love biscuits and gravy Christmas morning.

  1098. Stacy says:

    My mom always made curried fruit for me for Thanksgiving and Christmas, even though I was the only one who liked it!

  1099. Jenny says:

    Thanksgiving, hands down.

  1100. Keri says:

    I love Thanksgiving. We have this yam sweet potato recipe that has this delish nut and brown sugar topping that is to die for!

  1101. Amanda says:

    Stuffing. Hands down. I like to change it up a little by adding chopped apples and pecans. But even plain jane stuffing is a can’t miss holiday food!

  1102. Colette says:

    Orange Rolls–Light as air and spun with a bit of sweetened orange butter. Every time I make them, I promise myself I am going to make them more often, but before I know it, it’s Thanksgiving again!

  1103. Evonne Wallace says:

    Mmmmm….I’m going to have to go with monkey bread. Or my mom’s apple pie.

  1104. Courtney says:

    I am always a huge fan on the corn casserole my mom makes on Thanksgiving. But of course pecan pie is my favorite!

  1105. Marlene says:

    Favorite holiday food would have to be homemade rolls right out of the oven with real butter!!! Yummmm!!

  1106. Michaela says:

    Turkey! I love hot fresh turkey straight from the oven, but I think I love the left overs on sandwiches even more! I always look forward to lots and lots of leftover turkey πŸ™‚

  1107. Julie says:

    Hmm, just one, could be tough. But I love anything with pumpkin so pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are one of my favs.

  1108. Jana says:

    Would LOVE a Bosch!!!!! Hoping, hoping, hoping!!!

  1109. OH MY CUPCAKES! OMC! I have never even seen anything like this. I am new in this foodblogging, and I am hoping to go into my own food truck biz soon. I need a very serious surgery so will hold onto the nice positive future of food, and meeting so many wonderful people online, we all have food in common, and this makes for a very satisfying community of foodbloggers.
    To the issue, I love all the holidays. I never take down my Christmas tree because when we are in hard times we have this beautiful reminder and sparkly lights to boost our spirits up, and our family and friends would be devastated if I removed it.
    Green bean casserole, and a prime rib with all the trimmings. Also cornish hens with wild rice and mushroom stuffing. If it is pinon season we put some of them in. And last but not least dessert, homemade cheesecake, and lots of fun breads, and cookies. Yes indeedy would love to Bosch my holiday treats. Thanks and HAPPY HALLOWEEN! MAY THE PUMPKINS BE WITH YA ALL. KERBE

  1110. Tracey says:

    I would have to say TURKEY!!! …and homemade rolls at Thanksgiving. Leftover turkey sandwiches, with a little bit of everything on them, are the best!

  1111. Julianne says:

    Fresh cranberry sauce! YUM

  1112. Jenny says:

    Breakfast bread! A Christmas morning tradition!

  1113. jamiej says:

    my favorite has to be Christmas..

  1114. Kim Hansen says:

    My favorite is grandma’s yams with brown sugar….mmmmm, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving. Thank you for the great recipes we always enjoy from your site.

  1115. Lani says:

    I’m with you Mel that I can’t decide on a favorite of all favorites. Definitely my fudge (that is the best!), and well then there is the toffee too, and my holiday cranberry salad, and , and, and!!!

  1116. Jenn says:

    Pumpkin Bread. Yum, Yum, and Yum.

  1117. Sarah Olsen says:

    The holidays remind me of cinnamon rolls and sugar cookies. I love your blog.

  1118. Shante says:

    Pumpkin pie…oh and my Grandmother’s rolls…my 2 favorite Holiday foods ever!

  1119. Wendy says:

    Pecan Pie with loads of freshly whipped cream!

  1120. Lesley says:

    Mmmm, I love cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, I will go with that but it really isn’t easy to narrow it down.

  1121. Karen says:

    Oh goodness. I’m not sure I can choose just ONE!!! Tie between the Thanksgiving Day stuffing and the Christmas Day yorkshire pudding. And then, there’s all those pies. And Christmas cookies. And Christmas morning cinnamon rolls. Yum. *drool*

  1122. Kassie Kulb says:

    I live for pumpkin bread. I can’t tell you how many loaves/cakes/cupcakes I make in a year!

  1123. Holly says:

    My favorite Thanksgiving foods are sweet potato casserole and good ‘ole pumpkin pie.

  1124. I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with cream cheese frosting for the Fall, and especially Halloween!

  1125. Jacque says:

    There is just something about yummy cinnamon rolls on Christmas momring. Mmmmm. I love the holidays….what is there not to love?

  1126. Amy says:

    So many! Since we moved I have become an avid baker thanks to your recipes! I love to make the lion house rolls. They are absolutely delish warm with a little butter and are also fantastic with turkey and cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving leftovers. It is the only time of the year I look forward to leftovers!

  1127. Norah B says:

    There is so much holiday food that I love that’s its had to pick just one. I guess if I had to pick one thing its the sugar cookies (Martha Stewart recipe) that are so rich but so delicious. I only make them at Christmas time cause I’m sure each one had about 500 calories in them. I also love using a cream cheese frosting on them.

  1128. Kim S. says:

    My Mom makes a pumpkin cream cheese roll (actually several of them) for Thanksgiving. This is a relatively new addition to our Thanksgiving recipe arsenal, but a keeper! Oh, and my mother-in-law’s sausage stuffing is excellent too!

  1129. heather Imlay says:

    I LOVE FUDGE!!! I make enough to freeze and then I can have a piece a day for many days to come!!!

  1130. Lisa L says:

    Homemade pecae pie πŸ™‚

  1131. Pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting.

  1132. Jacqueline Taylor says:

    I would have to say, that French Apple pie is my favorite holdiay treat.

  1133. Joy E says:

    My future husband’s holiday season kicks off in september and runs through february (football season). He has friends over every weekend to watch the games downstairs. Although I have never been a fan of inviting groups of people over, this crew have become my taste testers for all of my crazy new recipes and I get the challenge to out do myself each week.
    one of my first attempts was pomegranate guacamole. This has become everyones new favorite. Because of the red and green this will definitely be a new addition to the holiday table.

  1134. Sue says:

    My favorite meal is Thanksgiving. I love the turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, the wild rice dish that a friend makes, the homemade yeast rolls, and best of all, my favorite pecan pie. Most of these I only get to taste once a year, but if I have to just list one, then it’s got to be the homemade pecan pie. It’s been my number one favorite dessert ever since I was a child, a gazillion years ago.

  1135. Cathy A says:

    Any food made for Thanksgiving. Stuffing, Turkey, Sweet Potatoes, etc.

  1136. Christina says:

    Jack-o-latern sugar cookies decorated with candy!

  1137. Shannon Woodberry says:
