Christmas Morning Recipes + Tried & True Christmas Recipes

Hello dear friend,

By this time next week, it will be Christmas! And if ever there was a year to celebrate Christ-mas, this is the year!

I am sliding in here at the last minute, with a slam-dunk, make ahead Christmas morning breakfast.

Maybe you enjoy going all out and making a big Christmas breakfast? The last few years I have enjoyed making things that can be prepped the night before and baked the morning of, so I can sit back with my cuppa eggnog and enjoy the morning.

Christmas Morning Recipe Ideas

We have had some cooler weather, with a little of snow, so it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Colorado.

The above picture is a little Christmas baking vignette on my kitchen counter. I found this darling mixing bowl at Home Goods and the rest I’ve had for several years.

We have a window box in front of our home and I enjoy decorating it with fresh greens and sugar pine cones every year! It was prettier the other day with a fresh dusting of snow.

Outdoor Christmas decor with large sugar pine cone leaning against a wooden Merry Christmas sign with a big silver bell and fresh greens tucked around with a red and black checked bow and twinkle lights.


Most if not all of these recipes can be cut in half for smaller gatherings, but I do pray that you are going to be with a few people you love this Christmastime.

Yes, Christmas looks a lot different this year, but I bet some shepherds minding their own business a few thousand years ago, didn’t expect what they got either! Let’s go into this Christmas with open hearts, kindness on our lips and a huge dose of love in our hearts. Christmas is about LOVE!

This Christmas musical narrative of It is Well with My Soul with Hugh Bonneville is amazing, if you have never heard the story behind the hymn, take the time to watch this beautiful narrative.

This is one of my very favorite hymns and is so much more meaningful when you know the story behind the hymn!

If you are looking for a church to “attend” for Christmas, this is one of my favorite pastors, they stream their service weekly.

Merry Christmas my friends, thank you for being on this journey with me!

Thanks for hanging out with me today, you my dear reader are a HUGE gift to me and my family!
