I'm honored to take on the family tradition of bringing Figgy Pudding to our family Christmas celebration. Aunt Donna had brought it for many years, but about two years ago she was ready to hand it down. She heard that I enjoyed baking and offered the recipie and the pan she had used for many years to me. Last year was my first year bringing it. I made some slight changes to the recipie, but she approved! I'm happy to honor her memory and keep it going. Thank you for the great Chrismas stockings too! Aunt Donna, you'll be missed.
