Vintage Christmas Monday - Oldies that are GOODIES


That's what's I'm
talking about!

are not

Do you have any
vintage recipes
or traditional foods
that you
make for Christmas?

Amaretto Truffles
would be a good tradition.

These are from
Sweet Paul
his blog is here.

These cinnamon buns
are Sweet Paul's too.

I love his blog
and have read it for
a couple of years.

Do you make cinnamon buns for Christmas Morning?

It's a GREAT tradition!

(If no time for scratch ...
the frozen Rhodes' are super!)

How about this yummy dish!

Doesn't Mari take wonderful pictures?

If you are not familiar with her work
from other sites
go to her own blog
An Angel at My Table


I want to wipe up
the extra glaze
with my finger ...
just a taste!

Text is in Swedish ....

but the language of
food, photos and children
is universal!

And besides,
google translate is
good for a laugh!

It's one of my son's
two favorite holiday sweets.

Don't cook or have
food traditions?

There are always
non-edible holiday goodies ...
like amaryllis!


Now it's time for me to


It's true I love to cook ...

but what I love
in the photos




The shortbread pic is from
Country Home
Holidays at Home
magazine from

It is still
my favorite
after all these years.

And my holiday baking
would look FAB on it,
don't you think??


Not baking.

I will make
homemade mayonnaise
for my dad.

His special request for

I won't use the vintage
Wesson Oil gadget ...

but will put in lots of
Holiday Love!

Hugs and hope your Christmas is surrounded by Holiday Goodies and lots of love!

  1. you have made me VERY hungry.

    All these antique cooling racks went unnoticed by me, until you mentioned them...GLAD you did.


  2. Good food is one of the best parts of the holiday season!
    I'm inspired to create some shortbread in the kitchen now. Thanks :+D

  3. Yum! I gained 5 pounds just looking at these pics! I have several pretty Christmas tins I have collected - I need to get moving and bake some goodies to give as gifts....

  4. Hello Sammy Girl and thanks for visiting me! I left a reply to your question on my post about the vintage Annalee Dolls... I do not see an email for you??? I love all these yummy looking treats you have shown, mmmmm! And the vintage cooling racks are wonderful! Love to you... Bisous... Julie Marie

  5. I love the holidays, this year is definitely a home made Christmas, which I love, I hope to do some baking next week, I also plan to make some cinnamon rolls out of The Farm Chicks cookbook, I have done it twice and love that recipe. Happy Baking. Hugs Florence

  6. Hmm it all looks so yummy!
    Wish I had more time to cook and bake.
    Love your white Wednesday post too!
    Sending you happy Vintage Christmas Monday wishes from Boxwood Cottage in Germany

  7. Those amaretto truffles look scrumptious! But give me some good old fruitcake and I'm happy! I must admit that my mother and myself are the only two people that I know that like it. If loving fruitcake is wrong, I don't wanna be right!
    Merry Christmas and Happy VCM!
