What one traditional food will you have at Christmas time? I always make coffee bread with lots of cardamom. To me, the smell of cardamom reminds me of the holidays and we always had Swedish coffeebread.

I always used to make homemade tamales for Christmas. They take two days to make, one day for the meat, one day to make the masa, and wrap the tamales, and steam them. Homemade tamales are the best. But, time consuming. I make them sometimes with chicken, but my favorite is to use a pork butt, slow roasted in the oven, and shred the meat very fine, and mix it with diced onion. I also make a red chile sauce and a green tomatillo sauce for the tamales. Yum...

I will be making all the traditional German Christmas cookies that the women in my family have made forever. I will be making liver kniflies (dumplings), very time consuming, but delish. I got a delivery from my hometown today, 5 pound of garlic cheese, 5 pounds of smoked sausage, 5 pounds of smoked pork loin, from Oberle's, they have been butchers since the 1880's, wouldnt be the holidays without those goodies!

Kolacky's - every year I make them. A family recipe. There would be a bunch of very disappointed people if I did not make them. Also, houska if I can find the time ... lots of bohemian recipes.

Grandma's date pudding.

All you tamale makers can come to my house to fill my freezer up after my belly with the fresh ones.
