Christmas Feast '09
Guess I'd better post this before the statute of limitations runs out. Two days of cooking fun. (All recipes were from the 2009 Sunset Holiday Cookbook, and all can be found online. Click on the links for the recipes and some nice pictures.)
Cider-Brined Pork Chops with Sautéed Apples
Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan and Pine Nuts
Cornbread and Gorgonzola Dressing
Overnight Soft Herb Rolls (which turned out more like focaccia)
