10 December 17, 2008 Your Hometown Newspaper Bath County News-Outlook Book Nook News by Linda Denton Bath County Memorial Library It's time" for Christmas cooking, and whatever the style and nationality you prefer, you'll find something to fit at your local library. Want to go traditional? Try Irene Hayes' What's Cooking for the Holidays. For some cultures, that would include Christmas Stollen, (page 61) a sweet bread rich with cinnamon, candied fruit, citrus zests, and lots of sugar. As for candies; you'll find recipes for Peanut Brittle, Southern Pralines, Pretzel Candy with White Chocolate, and Christmas Toffee on pages 338 and 339. There's a Danish Holiday Cake on page 271, a tasty looking Holiday Cake on page 270 and a Christmas Jam Cake on page 286. If you're a fan of coconut, check out the Special Holiday Cake on page 269. As for veggies and main dishes; there's no shortage. Look for Christmas Ribbon Salad, and Christmas Tree Salad (pages 166 and 167), and, if you like a bit of the fruit-of-the-vine in disguise, give the Port Wine Salad on page 172 a whirl. To warm up on a cold winter day, go for the Hot Chicken Salad on page 172, or the Hot Turkey Casserole featuring left-over turkey on page 81; and for your Christmas dinner, try them your turkey this year? Find Michelle Stone brings you Cellular One the Scalloped Oysters on Williams Sonoma offers out how on pages 18-27. Merry Christmas from "~ page 131 (I'd leave out the Christmas Entertaining Want the dos and don'ts Kentucky - Recipes for the Worchester Sauce, but that's just personal preference). One of my favorite cookbooks comes from the Kentucky Federation of Women's Clubs and is called Kentucky Hospitality - a 200 Year Tradition. It's full of good food and the history that goes with it. If, for instance, you don't know how to deal with country ham, check out pages 68 through 70. If you're a hunter, you might be interested in the wild game recipes on pages 67 and 68. Speaking of which, would you like to know what George Rogers Clark's Christmas feast consisted of?. Find out on page 65. Did you realize that the Transparent Pudding (presumably the filling for Transparent Pie) originated around Mason and Fleming Counties? Read all about it on page 251, which is where you'll find the recipe. A favorite of Kentucky journalist, author and humorist Irvin Shrewsbury Cobb (born in Paducah in 1876...died in 1944), was Hickory Nut Cake. You'll find a short bio about him and the recipe for the cake on pages 218 and 219 along with a recipe for Pecan Cake, which according to my grandmother, was a favorite of my dad's. Recipes for Cream Candy, Candy Pudding and Bourbon Balls can be found on pages 269, 271, and 273 respectively. By the way, this is the book to go to on the first Saturday in May (Derby Day) if you'd like to serve a Mint Julep the way Henry Clay liked which covers everything from decorating, to parties, to the main meal, to gifts from the kitchen. Remember the "Figgy Pudding" that Bob Cratchet, Tiny Tim and family so enjoyed in Scrooge? Check it out on pages 94 and 95. There's a Bourbon-Glazed Ham on page 128-129, and a recipe for Gingerbread with Whipped Cream on pages 134-135. The Broccoli and Blue Cheese Gratin on pages 130-131 is a different and intriguing twist to the usual broccoh casserole. Taste of Home offers Hohdav & Celebrations Cookbook 2003 with a few twists of its own. Try, for example, the Rhubarb Chutney Appetizer on page 38...the Celebration Cranberry Cake on page 76... and the Aloha Brittle with coconut and macadamia nuts on page 99. The Cranberry Spinach Salad on page 127 sounds hke a tasty and tart addition to Christmas dinner. The Sweet Potato Cranberry Relish on page 131, and the Cranberry Horseradish Sauce on page 132 are definitely different. The Spiced Pumpkin Pie on page 137 looks and sounds dehcious, as does the Citrus Cranberry Pie on page 139. Sarah Fritschner's Hohday's - Menus and Recipes for the Fall Hohday Season also covers the gamut, so if you're new to cooking for Christmas, or just want to try something different, this may be the book for you. Want to try brining, smoking, or frying of gravy-making? Look them up on pages 16 and 17. Want to know how to make Easy Giblet or Cornbread Dressing? The riddle is solved on pages 30-31. Want your mashed potatoes to be perfect? Follow the directions on pages 38-39. Are sweet potatoes not sweet potatoes unless they're cooked with miniature marshmallows, brown sugar and pecans? There's a recipe calling for all of that on page 40. Are you fresh out of ideas for turkey leftovers? There are new ones beginning on page 47 along with a recipe for the Kentucky specialty, Hot Brown, on page 61. Never made Christmas favorites like Mulled Cider or Eggnog? Find recipes on page 64 and 65. The Southern Living Christmas Cookbook is, according to the publishers, "your ultimate holiday entertaining guide." The Pecan Pie on page 67 looks delicious but I think I'd rather use more crusts and pecans, and spread the same 1-pie-amount of very rich filling around to make a bunch of very thin tarts. If you're looking for something different for Christmas breakfast, there are Pumpkin and Eggnog Pancakes on page 81...Sausage-Filled Crepes on page 83...a Hash Brown Cheese Bake on page 85...Hot Russian Tea on page 86...and Holiday Hot Chocolate (with peppermint) on page 89. Kentucky author Season with its Spicy Tomato Warm-up (page 69)..,Glazed Apples and Canadian Bacon (page 64)...Breakfast Casserole (page 61)...Beer Cheese Spread (page 20)... Sausage & Broccoli Party Squares (page 7)".Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice Pecans (page 176)...
