Share your holiday traditions with us

Every family has holiday memories that are expressed and reinforced from year to year in special Christmas cookies, breads and family desserts that are often passed down from generation to generation.

If your Christmas would not be Christmas without Swedish rye bread or Aunt Mary’s thumbprint cookies, you know that many of our holiday stories are told through the confections that make our memories sweet.

Tell us about your family’s signature recipes that make your holiday special. Even better, share them with our readers. Who knows – maybe your kitchen tradition can make its way into another family eager to share the fellowship of creating edible holiday memories.

Send your story and recipe to by Dec. 3. We’ll choose a few to feature in the Dec. 19 Food & Nutrition section. Please include your telephone number so we may verify your submission.

Happy holidays!

Karen Brucoli Anesi
