Holiday Recipe Roundup

The holiday season brings up memories of holidays past

Favorite Recipes for the holidays from Big Mill | chloesblog.bigmill.com

For me, they are often memories of wonderful food and recipes from my farm bed and breakfast. I have been writing Chloe’s Blog since 2007 and have gathered some great old family favorites and some new and exciting recipes that my mom never heard of.

I know she had no clue what Cranberry Liqueur was. And when I wanted a Cranberry Liqueur Recipe in 2007, I could not find one. So I set out and made my own.

Here are seven of my favorite holiday recipes published on Chloe’s Blog over the years.  I hope you’ll give them a try and let me know how you like them.

Honey Glazed Pecans

If you must take an appetizer to a party, this is the perfect one to take. You can make this ahead of time and I have never brought any of these Honey Roasted Pecans home. I make them from pecans grown here on the farm.

Pretty and tasty Bourbon Pecan Pie Recipe | chloesblog.bigmill.com

Bourbon Pecan Pie

Great desert recipe for any holiday occasion. Not only is this Pecan Pie a real treat, but it is gorgeous if you bake it in the special pie pans and add some artistic touches. Great either way but a real feast for the eyes.

Warm Brie Recipe with Fig Preserves Appetizer

Warm brie with fig preserves makes a great appetizer- guests will definitely come back for more. I use the fig preserves that I make from figs grown on the farm, but you can buy them at the grocer’s.

And — If you’re on Pinterest, I’d love it if you’d PIN your favorites from this post to your boards and share these recipes with others.
