12 Days of Christmas

All of a sudden your inbox is getting flooded with recipe ideas, isn’t?  Of course it is.  One website is offering 12 days of cookie recipes, Miss Paula’s newsletter is working overtime giving you some ideas of what you might want to prepare this holiday season.  For those who aren’t electronically inclined, it’s typically the time of the year when we are most likely to reach up to where we have some cook books, blow dust off of them like a scene from Lord of the Rings, crack one open and ask yourself, “What on earth am I going to make for Christmas this year?”

Here is our list of 12 Holiday Season recipes collected from several Savannah area restaurants to share with you this month.  We are unveiling 1 every day (M-F) until December 23rd.   A list of 12 recipes we know you will Eat and Like!
