How My Children Changed My View of the Perfect Holiday — New Holiday Traditions

How My Children Changed My View of the Perfect Holiday — New Holiday Traditions | ♨ Family & Food ♨ | Scoop.it
Growing up, I had not one, not two, but three different holiday traditions. As a result, I dreamed of a life that looked a lot like Norman Rockwell's famous painting, Freedom from Want: Family gathered, a fat brown turkey on the table, and ideally, fewer emotional complications for my kids than my own divorced childhood had delivered. But dreams don't always come true, and sometimes they fail to encompass all the available — and wonderful — possibilities.

How To Make a Pull-Apart Rugelach Ring — Baking Lessons from The Kitchn

How To Make a Pull-Apart Rugelach Ring — Baking Lessons from The Kitchn | ♨ Family & Food ♨ | Scoop.it
Rugelach is a rolled baked treat that cooks as easily as a cookie, yet tastes like a pastry. It's crisp and sweet on the outside, and so delicate and tender on the inside that it melts in your mouth. This circular pull-apart rugelach is a charmingly decorative variation — yet another take on a confection that has had many versions. If you make rugelach often, you will notice that this dough is a bit sturdier and holds its shape a bit better than other rugelach doughs. It very much remains the sumptuous, butter-rich cookie we all know and crave.

Constructed entirely of cookies and icing, gingerbread houses are among the most magical of holiday treats. But for the home baker, embarking on such an intricate project can seem intimidating. Is it possible to build a beautiful biscuit structure from scratch and still have fun? I spoke to Jon Lovitch, New York chef and creator of GingerBread Lane, a collection of over 1,200 edible houses currently on display at the New York Hall of Science. Lovitch, who hopes to win his fourth straight Guinness World Record for "largest gingerbread village," offered his best tips for gingerbread house construction.

Recipe: The World's Easiest Cookies Just Happen to Be Paleo, Vegan, and Gluten-Free — Recipes from The Kitchn | ♨ Family & Food ♨ | Scoop.it
Let's get this out of the way upfront: I know calling a cookie recipe the "world's easiest" sounds a bit ridiculous, but I can explain. The name started out innocently enough — one day, I created an easy-to-make almond cookie recipe. I adored this recipe. In my excitement, I'd say to friends, "You have to try these almond cookies; they're, like, the world's easiest cookies." And well, the name stuck.
