I remember many traditions from my childhood, but I remember special treats brought to our house by neighbors the most. Every gift was a homemade delight. Liala's Norwegian cookies topped the list. Today our family looks forward to Becky's Baklava (we say with reverence) or Lisa homemade fudge sauce (amazing).
I think we have become so busy with the holidays that these homemade traditions are starting to fade. I believe we need to pass them on to our children and grandchildren. Let the legacy continue.
Thank you for making my Christmas so wonderful with your stories and traditions. I am in awe with how much you do.

Here are a couple of fabulous desserts you may want to consider for the holidays
Le Bete Noir if you are a chocoholic. This is a deep chocolate flourless torte. It is so easy to make and can be made several days in advance. It can also be frozen and removed from the freezer a few hours before you want to serve.
