The 12 Days of Christmas

This year, A-Tooch came awfully close to celebrating, quite literally, 12 days of Christmas. Some office parties, Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas day… twice…a birthday, New Year’s and more than one week out of the office made it one hell of a celebration.

Festive new dinnerware!

For the first time ever I hosted Christmas Eve dinner at my apartment in NYC. Thankfully, it was much less overwhelming than it sounds since Christmas Eve is just my mom, dad and aunt. We usually do a modified version of the Italian tradition of seven fishes Christmas Eve dinner. At my apartment, it was two fishes. Stay tuned for the fabulous crab cakes I concocted.

Then, there was Christmas day. I wanted to make something festive for Christmas brunch, so I tried this Eggnog Coffee Cake recipe from Berkeley Farms. It was super easy to make and came out flavorful and moist. The best part — while it was baking for 50 minutes I had some time to get ready before the company came.

The day after Christmas my family came down from New Hampshire. Naturally, we celebrated Christmas day all over again! Our dinner always involves our secret family recipe ravioli:

And finally, no holiday at home is complete without cookies from my favorite Italian bakery. ESPECIALLY the rainbow cookies — no one gets in the way of my rainbow cookies.
