Blog Hop Party: Feeling Jovial

Blog 
Hop Party with Give-Aways

Since Farmer's Wife has decided to take a little break as she prepares for a country Christmas (at least, I assume that's what she is doing!), I thought it would be fun to join a blog hop and offer a little Christmas cheer of my own, a charm pack of "Jovial" by Basic Grey.

So if you are feeling jovial, let me know what your favorite holiday treat is. A special cookie made with an old family recipe? Fudge? Hot spiced cider? Do tell. The Random Number Generator elf will choose a winner on December 16 so you have plenty of time to give me your secret recipe tell me what treat says "Christmas" to you.

And don't forget to join the hop for a chance at some other festive treats.

ETA: Thanks for playing, everyone! Comments are now closed.

We have several treats at Christmas time - toffee bars as a sweet, breakfast casserole on Christmas morning, and we all all my daughter-in-law from Hong Kong make potstickers.

Pam said... #

Our favorite treat is a butter crumb coffee cake. We look forward to it Christmas morning.

stitchinpenny said... #

I live in the south and my favorite treat is Pecan Pralines. They make a nice stocking stuffer.

pinsandneedles said... #

My favorite Christmas treat is a cookie that my grandma made. It is still a favorite among my mother and all my siblings and our families. I have the inherited recipe...hehe.

Nancy said... #

I will be indulging in some Egg Nog...Love my Mom's homemade...

Jackie's Stitches said... #

Mom's Sugar Cookies! They're a pain to make and a pain to frost but oh so good.

Laurel said... #

it's not a sweet treat, but my grandmother-in-love's pierogi are the treat my whole family looks forward to on Christmas!

Dollwood Farms said... #

My favorite thing to do is have a big Christmas breakfast qith my family and friends who don't have loved ones in town. It is the best morning ever!

Brenda said... #

German peppernut cookies. thanks for the chance!

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said... #

Tracey @ The Peony Teacup said... #

Two things I do every Christmas without fail are making fresh homemade pasta & shortbread. Love the shortbread so much, but I only make it at Christmas...

Jessica said... #

Coffee cake on Christmas morning :)

Pieces to Love said... #

As a child I remember making/stealing different candies and other goodies with my mom. I have certain things I have to make each year, even if it is just for my family and I have to put it in the freezer for the next 6 months until it is gone. Christmas to me is truly celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Anonymous said... #

Since marrying into a long line of Swedes, I have grown to love the homemade potato sausage every Christmas. My favorite cookie is Raspberry Shortbread Dreams. Yum!

Jen said... #

Jovial...I don't even know what it looks like, but I love everything basic Grey, so I'm sure I'd love this too!

My favorite holiday treat is my mom's homemade toffee. I don't even know how to make it and I have it maybe every 5 years if I'm lucky, since I rarely see my mom on Christmas. the last time I had some I asked her for the recipe and she said, "Oh you don't want to make it. It's very hard and it took me 3 batches before I got this one right this time." So I said forget it! But it's so yummy; toffee on the bottom, dark chocolate spread over the top, and ground almonds (I think) sprinkled over the top. I may have to call her and get the recipe anyway. If you want it, let me know!

Needled Mom said... #

Each year I have certain recipes that have been passed down through the years and must be made - my grandmother's date cookies and my great aunt's toffee are the best!!!!

deserae said... #

I love my mom's homemade sugar cookies!

girlyhurley said... #

Grandma's chocolate candy cookies! Yummy!

lindaroo said... #

Mmmm, so many special treats at this time of year! Egg nog, fruitcake, peppermint bark, gingerbread cookies! I make an American version of Plum Pudding; it's a gingerbread cake with cranberries, served with a yummy sauce made of butter, cream, sugar, and vanilla! Scrumptious, and I'm sworn to secrecy about the recipe!

LJ said... #

I lke the Peppermint Bark. And I LOVE wrapping gifts!!!

FlourishingPalms said... #

My favorite holiday recipe would have to be peanut butter marshmellow fudge. Sadly, I never make it anymore because the calorie content is outrageous, but it's a happy remembrance of Christmas to our adult children. Thanks for the chance to win your generous giveaway. Love me some fabric!

Archie the wonder dog said... #

My favourite Christmas treat would have to be our Boxing Day dinner - cold turkey, chips and pickles...yummy! It's my favourite meal of the year!

Wacky Woman said... #

I have none and definitely need Christmas fabric!!

Lindsay Conner said... #

Haha, if I had a secret recipe, I would give it to you! Fave treat is anything pumpkin, chocolate, or cheesecake flavored!

Kleep said... #

My favourite is buttermilk cookies. They're a little cakier than your average cookie, they come with icing, and nobody who tries them can just have one. Mmmmm.

hollymade said... #

My favorite is english toffee-it's also the favorite of everyone I make it for.

heartsease54 said... #

My favorite holiday treat is my homemade cranberry bread. My recipe calls for mayonnaise & boy is it moist! Love it. Oh, and my fudge too.

erica said... #

Doris said... #

I allow myself one eggnog latte each year (Yup, already had it!) and my favorite treat are my aunt's Christmas Wreaths made from corn flakes and corn syrup (sounds, healthy, huh?!). Thankfully I don't have them every year, but my second fave is pumpkin pie, and I do have that annually!!

Pat said... #

My favorite Christmas treat is Spiced Pecans!

QuilterLaura said... #

I love plain and simple shortbread cookies. Just butter, sugar, and flour. Doesn't get any better...unless of course I put melted chocolate on top!

Susan said... #

Shortbread and mince pies are favorites in our house! And we make a yummy slice called White Christmas which is kept in the fridge during a long hot Australian summer!

Michele T said... #

A favorite treat is Bacon Buns!! Yummy!

Kathryn said... #

Eggnog is a special treat at Christmas. Kathie L in Allentown

www.randomthoughtsdoordi.com said... #

My 4 sons and husband would say Apricot Kolache, hands down, but they are a pain to make so I cheat by making a double batch of Peanut Blossoms, which are their second favorite. I used to make 12-15 different cookies but now things have changed and everyone is always on a diet!

Love Joy Piece said... #

Peppernuts, the crispy ones with anise and other spices dunked in a little coffee or milk!

Sel said... #

Christmas treat? My hands-down favourite is my mum's Chocolate Hazelnut Cherry Rum Truffles, which are cute, addictive, and so so delicious!

(They're also really rather complicated to make, which is why they're only a Christmas treat.)

Judi said... #

Peppernuts - which aren't really nuts at all. My grandmother used to make them. They are really hard little cookie/biscuits - very hard to explain, but about the size of butter mints, if that makes sense. I may just have to try my hand at making them and post the recipe on my blog... eventually.

Fran said... #

I really love homemade shortbread, my Mum makes some for Christmas every year. I also LOVE plum pudding & can always find room for seconds, my family jokes that as a non-drinker, it's the alcohol hit that does it for me. Thanks for the giveaway.

Kathy MacKie said... #

I love my Mom's Oatmeal Shortbread cookies-yummy.

charlotte said... #

First is my DD's birthday and THEN Christmas...so it's party central around here! I USED to enjoy baking cookies- Christmas in my house growing up meant millions of cookies made- but my favorite was Oatmeal raisin. But we went dairy free this year and I still haven't mastered a yummy oatmeal yet....although I did make a TREMENDOUS Orange chocolate chunck cake with chocolate ganache icing that was dairy free today...I think I have a new favorite!

Mary said... #

One secret recipe coming up: Snicker Salad, aka Superior Candy Apple Salad (1/2 the apples, twice the Snickers of the original)

12 reg sized Snickers candy bars, chopped
3-4 tart apples such as Granny Smith,
peeled, cored chopped
1 block of cream cheese, softened
1 jar marshmallow creme - I use the bigger jar, but have used the smaller one when I couldn't find a big one
1 large container Cool Whip, thawed. Again in a pinch you can use the smaller container.

Beat together cream cheese, marshmallow cream, and cool whip. Pour over apples and snickers and fold in, mixing till all covered and smooth. You can add maraschino cherries if you want.

Don't make too far ahead of time if serving guests. The candy bars will gradually melt into the dressing. It's every bit as good that way, but not as pretty. This stuff NEVER gets thrown away -- it's eaten to the last spoonful.

Try it, you'll like it! :^)

My favorite holiday treat is my sisters snickers cheesecake!
