What with the whole COVID nonsense, a lot of people may be having Christmas at home, either alone or with a couple other people. That’s where the blogosphere comes in. Earlier today, I asked what you’d like to bring to Christmas dinner. In case you responded but aren’t included in this post, it’s not intentional; I’m quite willing to own that I’m a doofus.
Dinner’s ready, and we’ve got lots of yummy desserts, so dig in!
If it’s Christmas, there’s got to be a turkey, right? This stuffed turkey comes from rts.
I’m very partial to my mom’s stuffing recipe (we called it dressing even though it was actually stuffed in the bird). It was ultra-simple: dried bread cubes, onion, celery, and sage. Perfection.
It was surprisingly difficult to find a freely usable southern bbq image, but the southern-style ribs, fries, and cornbread come from Meg down in Kentucky.
This caramelized red onion tart topped with goat cheese comes from Hugh.
These homemade rolls come from Melanie.
Melanie brought some cranberry jelly as well.
For some reason, Pixabay seems anti-gravy, so we’ll just have to pretend that there’s gravy from the turkey to go with the mashed potatoes.
I generally only like potatoes if they’re quite far removed from their natural potato state, but in this case, they work well as a gravy delivery system.
These Christmas sugar cookies come from Meg
These gingerbread come from Paula. The Pixabay store was out of non-dairy caramel ice cream, but if you happen to have some in your freezer, pull it on out.
Cheesecake #1 (oh yes!) is this nutcracker cheesecake comes from Lady A.
Cheesecake #2, because there’s always a second stomach available, is this caramel chocolate cheesecake from Hugh.
I brought a Canadian classic, butter tarts. Gooey buttery brown sugary raisiny goodness—you really can’t go wrong! These were part of the core Christmas baking repertoire when I was growing up.
Here’s our second Canadian classic, Nanaimo bars. There’s coconuts and walnuts in the base layer, a butter/icing/custard powder layer in the middle, and then chocolate on top.
These Golden Graham s’mores bars come via Melanie‘s sister-in-law.
This homemade apple pie comes from rts.
On the Lighter Side
This colourful fruit salad comes from wediditptsd.
If you’re feeling almost totally stuffed but still have a little room for snacks, Mel of Crushed Caramel has brought some vegan cheese and crackers.
Thanks everyone for joining in! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
