Another holiday favorite in our home growing up was Canadian pork pie. My father was French Canadian and this was passed down from his side. I make it every New Years day in my own home. It is similar to shepherds’ pie. The recipe as it was passed down to me, includes a mixture of lean ground pork and beef, potatoes and onions, and various spices including clove and nutmeg.

A winter staple recipe for us is homemade chicken soup. Needing no one else’s accolades, I humbly admit I think my chicken soup is the best I have ever had. I tweak it a bit each time I make it, so it is always a bit of a surprise, but I do love it and never tire of this principal dining delight.
We have several other “Mom will you make…” recipes or reminiscent recipes of days-gone-by that stimulate all the senses and bring a smile in the contemplation. The recipes at the links above are not mine, but they look pretty good too.
What are some of your favorites you have from the family archives?
