Plum Pudding and More:
A Holiday Recipe Collection
As weve learned anew each time the bookclub has discussed a book dealing with cooking or eating, some of our most powerful memories and emotions are linked to food. Culturally, we associate many special foods and drinks with the holiday season, from sugarplums and roasted chestnuts to fruitcake (for better or worse) and from the cookies left for Santa to the orange tucked into the childs stocking in return. But each family also has its own special food traditions to contribute. So in the spirit of sharing, we asked guests and viewers of the bookclub holiday special celebrating A Kentucky Christmas to send us a recipe or two. Here are the responses weve received so far.
Baked Corn Casserole from viewer Gretchen Nation
Broccoli Casserole from viewer Gretchen Nation
SWEETS AND DESSERTS
Chocolate Pizza from KET web editor Barbara Clifton
Christmas Fluff from writer Jane Gentry Vance
Peanut Butter Fudge from viewer Gretchen Nation
