First…some of our eats from the day

We do a Tex-Mex Christmas.  Big surprise I’m sure. 😉 And this year every single drop of the meal was gluten-free. 🙂

Homemade Enchilada Sauce.

Refrieds.  The missing picture should be the Tamales.  The ‘star’ of the meal.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate.  The best Egg Nog…like ever. 🙂

My annual holiday Kolaches.  Prune and sausage…plus one lone fig.  My Mema would always make me a small pan of figs on the side.  Y’all know that since I only get one batch a year in the summer I treat my fig preserves like gold.  There’s still 7 months before I can replenish my stash so I  didn’t want to waste a bunch in case these didn’t turn out. 🙂   

I’ve written about this before but I made my first batch of kolaches in elementary school for a heritage day presentation.  Bread doughs and especially kolache dough is in my blood.  When I got my celiac results I mourned the loss of plenty of stuff…but nothing more than Christmas kolaches.  Thankfully that one turned out to be a total waste of tears. 🙂

I took my regular kolache recipe (my Mema’s) and just subbed the bread book flour plus a little water roux.  I kept everything else exactly the same.  They were delicious.  The fam thought that no one would know they were gluten-free unless they were told.  I considered that pretty high praise coming from people who can still eat gluten. 🙂

What kinds of amazing stuff did y’all recreate this holiday?  Link it if you feel like sharing. 🙂

  1. Christmas dinner was wonderful!! I can attest to that! It’s hard to pick a favorite because it was all so good! I’d probably have to go with the enchilladas and the kolaches as my favorites…if I HAD to pick! It was all delicious though!! 🙂 Love you. ❤
