It’s the holiday season at last and all is merry and bright! We love the holidays as much as you do and we know you’re busy, so we’re here preparing your traditional favorite meals, party foods, and once-a-year treats to help make your holidays the merriest ever.
Keep traditions alive
A good friend once said to me, the Christmas of today is wonderful, but it’s really the Christmases of our past that make everything so special this time of year. This is why the traditions of Christmas are so important to all of us! We’re here to provide everything you need for your holiday traditions. Plates of cookies for Santa, fish for your Christmas Eve feast, and dishes that make you reminisce about your grandma’s holiday table!
One of my family favorites is a Baccala salad. We make it here in-house with my Mom’s recipe so you and yours can enjoy it, too! Another family favorite of ours is the Struffoli. This centuries-old Italian specialty is served only for Christmas. It’s mouthwatering fried dough dipped in honey and colorfully decorated.
Giving the Tree a Trim
Adding a new tradition this year can be a fun twist to your yuletide. Why not host a Christmas tree-trimming party? Or gather your friends for a walk around the neighborhood singing some favorite Christmas Carols? Focus on the fun and keep it simple when you order a box of hoagies or a mini sandwich tray, chicken cutlets, and a sweet dessert like some festive cupcakes or our tastes-as-good-as-it-looks wreath cake to serve the crowd. They’ll be insisting this gathering become a holiday must-do activity!
