My Favorite Holiday Recipe


Welcome to Day #4 of MomDot’s Blog Party! Today’s question is sponsored by Bottlewise and Glow Mama.

What is your favorite holiday recipe? Describe your holiday table and your biggest holiday cooking disaster.

My favorite holiday recipe has to be my Cranberry Gelatin Salad.  You know it’s good when you get invited to parties and the host requests you bring this dish.  My family insists on it at our holiday gatherings.  It is kid-friendly too because even though it has cranberries in it, The Little Write Gal loves it because it has Jello!  You should try it for your next Christmas party.  It looks gorgeous if you serve it in a glass bowl.

Cranberry Gelatin Salad

1 package (6 ounces) cherry gelatin
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
1 can (16 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
1-1/2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
1/4 cup chopped pecans

In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in water. Stir in pineapple and cranberry sauce. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Stir in grapes and pecans. Pour into a 2-qt. serving bowl. Refrigerate until firm. Yield: 8-10 servings.


My holiday table usually just has our china on it for parties because there is normally so much food at my house it is sitting everywhere on the kitchen countertops, even on the stove.  I have never really had any holiday cooking disasters — at least not yet.  I hope I don’t have one this year since I just typed this.
