The Christmas season is the time when the creative homemaker turns magician and hypnotizes her family by whisking from her oven all kinds of foods with holiday glamour. When the family says, "It smells like Christmas," mother has caught the Holiday spirit in the most womanly custom of all, cooking.
Because of our varied ancestry, many foods of many lands have become traditionally American. Sharing of recipes is akin to sharing of Holiday goodies, so a few homemakers have shared some of their old country cooking customs with us.
