Merry Christmas Eve to you from the Koelling family kitchen! We hope today you are preparing for delightful time with your family this week. One of our favorite traditions is going to a Christmas eve service. Usually, Farmer Al is running late from finishing chores on the farm and meets us in town at church (after the service has started). Because of this, we forever sing "No-Al" instead of "Noel." After chores are done and our carols are sung, we have the best time eating, opening presents, and celebrating the birth of Christ! What are some of your favorite traditions?
We spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen - especially around holidays. We've been finalizing our 2018 Christmas Menu for several weeks now and I hope you enjoy this special recipe creation from the heart of our home.
These Cinnamon-Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries combine two of our Christmas favorites. The sweetness of the potatoes and the tang from the cranberries is a great combo. Our Simply Sunflower Oil ties everything together with a savory, nutty flavor. The cinnamon tops it off.
It is a perfect recipe if you have any little helpers in the kitchen that enjoy pouring and mixing. Here is a quick 30-second video to show you just how easy this is!
