Looks like a good recipe. I don't understand the comment that it's labor intensive though. Seems fairly straight forward and easy.

BTW, what time is dinner?

For some cooking is about pressing the right button on the microwave and when it comes to proper cooking they may find it time consuming and complex. For me the more intensive the better i like it.

I have yet to make the cheesecake. I got the recipe from my mom who has made it before (hence the request by my niece). It calls for whipped topping, but I'm making real whipped cream and hope that will work.

It is NOT vegan, but since I mentioned it on this thread, here it is. I'm sure it would be easy enough to turn into a tease-cake if you already have a recipe for a basic one.

Snowy White Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake
1C. graham cracker crumbs
3Tbs. melted butter
3Tbs. sugar
3-8oz. pkg. cream cheese
3 eggs
4-1oz. squares white baking chocolate
3/4C. sugar
1/2C. crushed candy cane
whipped topping

Mix graham cracker crumbs, 3Tbs. sugar & melted butter to make crust. Press mixture into bottom of 10" sprngform pan. Bake crust at 325* for 10 min. Cool. Mix cream cheese and rest of sugar untl just blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each, until blended. Melt white chocolate in double boiler ( or microwave ) and stir into cream cheese mixture. Gently fold in crushed candy canes. Pour mixture over cooled crust. Bake 45-50 min. at 325* or until center is almost set. Cool completely, then refrigerate for ( at least ) 4 hrs. When ready to serve spread a thin layer of whipped topping on top and sprinkle with more crushed candy canes.

Christmas Eve dinner:
1) Veggie puffs (mashed potatoes, steamed carrots, and mushrooms wrapped in dough & baked)
2) Baked potato
3) Stuffing made with vegetable broth & herbs
4) Steamed veggies (corn, green beans, and peppers) in Earth Balance

Un-veganfied by adding cream to puffs and potato, but good either way!

For dessert, pumpkin pie and sugar cookies!

I'm still not totally set on a menu, but here're some likely possibilities. It's going to be very casual event, sort of a 'roam, graze, nosh' two-day event~

spaghetti w/ red sauce
garlic bread
cold macaroni salad w/celery & olives
Tofurkey loaf or some kind of non-meat loaf
grilled sweet potatoes
green salad
baked green beans w/sliced almonds
garlic mashed potatoes (love 'em lumpy!)
mushroom gravy
cranberry sauce
cold veggie & fruit tray w/hummus
rice & broccoli soup
pancake roll-ups (stuffed with veg.cheese & diced apples or....)

Dessert: cranberry crisp, gingerbread

Coffee, tea, no-egg nog (delicious), apple cider.

^veggie puffs! Good idea ~ MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

I've been trying out recipes for Christmas and came across this. May I say that Isa Chandra is a clever, creative genius-chef! You guys must try her egg nog. I went to ppk (Matrioshka Eggnog | Post Punk Kitchen | Vegan Baking & Vegan Cooking) and found The Best Nog Ever recipe.

this is my abbreviated version (dang it, I thought I had nutmeg & lemon but didn't). Didn't use agave, this is sweet enough without it.

cinnamon
avocado
cloves
vanilla extract
almond milk

Chill. Blend....it is by far so much better than any store-bought nog. It is incredibly delicious and is definitely on the menu!

Please try it, promise you'll never buy the 'other stuff' again.
That looks better than the "real" egg nog (I can't stand the stuff)! I'll have to try that!

You must try it. Honestly, it is much lighter than even the Silk stuff and it's (as you see) super simple to make.

Oh yes, most of what I posted was gone yesterday. So, luckily there're a few more place to 'hit' today. They're not vegan or even vegetarian, but there's plenty of veg*n food for everyone!
