The holidays are my favorite time of year and, my favorite time to be in the kitchen! After a much more subdued season last year, I kind of went "full tilt" on my cooking this year, doing both the traditional full Christmas dinner as well as an unexpected baking extravaganza...
Test #3 of one of my new seasoning formulations - this time on a duck leg.
A pre-holiday get-together with friends at Founding Farmers in Reston, VA.
Some of the results of my baking extravaganza, making a variety of tasty treats that paid homage to my family and Mrs. DVanB, including a couple of creations of my own.
It may have been just me, but that didn't stop me from cooking up the full, family-tradition Christmas dinner.
