When I was growing up, my Grandma ‘Nez used to host the family Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Dinner. I wish I had a clear recollection of how long it would take her to make all of the treats and meals. She made everything seem easy so I never even thought about how much effort she put into all of us having a good time until I was a mother myself. It’s in recognition of the season, and in honor of my Grandma ‘Nez that I share this recipe with you.
