Family traditions are what make Christmas. They are so meaningful and what make holidays special. Going home for Christmas and knowing what the traditions hold, just makes your heart so warm!
Our owner, Jessica, shared with us what her family traditions are and why they are so special to her.
on Christmas morning, Jessica makes biscuits and chocolate gravy for her family. She got the recipe from one of her dear friend's mom who she affectionately calls, 'Mother Curry', and has used the recipe every single Christmas morning for the past nine years! Here is the recipe for Christmas morning chocolate gravy!
3 tablespoons of cocoa
2 tablespoons of flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup of cold milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of butter
-mix together the first three ingredients over medium heat. add milk and let it thicken. add vanilla and butter. serve over biscuits.
A few more of Jess' favorite traditions include really simple gift wrap, a holiday scented candle burning in the house, mailing out Christmas cards to friends + family and the most special of all, attending the candlelight service at her church on christmas eve.
