When I look back upon some of my favorite childhood memories, they involve the holiday season and spending time with my family. Our house was always bustling with the Christmas spirit and full of delicious food. Ever since I can remember, I always tried to help my mom in the kitchen while she prepared our holiday meal. Growing up I took note of everything she did when she was making things. My mom always had a couple of special touches that made everything she made even better. Since my mom’s passing 4 years ago, I am eternally grateful of the time I spent with her in the kitchen. Now I can pass on all her secrets to my children, and they can help carry on her legacy.
I have to admit this holiday was hard on me. Trying to take my mom’s special recipes and turn them Color Me Sensible friendly was definitely a task to accomplish. I am happy to say that with help from my dad and children, I am sure we made my mom proud. Although it took forever to accomplish, even Santa was able to gift me my own hot chocolate I could actually drink. I want to take this time to extend a very Merry Christmas to you all! I hope that you enjoyed the holiday and created special memories with friends, family, and loved ones.
