In the Hodgkins household, we care about food. My dad is a culinary school graduate. My parents used to own an ice cream shop. My boyfriend knows that I love a good cookbook and gives me new cookbooks for each birthday and Christmas gift. Even my sister said she was won over by her partner because of his fantastic meatball recipe.
When it comes to holidays, we pull out all the stops with our family dishes. It’s the one time of year where we can combine tradition and celebration through our culinary masterpieces. Is it the 4th of July? My dad is out on the smoker making his pulled pork barbecue and mom is putting together the blueberry-lemon pie. How about Christmas Eve? We have the feast of the seven fishes ready to go on the dinner table. Is Super Bowl Sunday even considered a holiday? Definitely in our house, complete with steak tip sandwiches and fresh cut fries.
