Do you have a favorite holiday recipe? Maybe it's a Christmas recipe that's been passed down for generations. Or maybe it's a new, healthier option for Christmas or Hanukkah. You probably have a story, too, about what makes the recipe special to you or your family.
We invite you to share your recipes and stories, and help build a "cookbook" of Sacramento Bee favorites.
We'll print some of your recipes and stories in future Food & Wine sections. See who has already shared:
Paula Clement of Gold River added the recipe for Grandma Zehme's date nut bread and the lovely story of Grandma Zehme and her daughter Dorothy.
Beverly Riddle of Nevada City shared Swedish butter cookies, a recipe she cut out of The Sacramento Bee in the late 1950s and has been making every year since at Christmas.
