It’s Christmas! And all the stockings are hung on the chimney with care in hopes that Santa Claus soon will be here! I love hearing that story – I grew up every Christmas Eve, my uncle would read Twas ‘The Night Before Christmas‘ with all of us gathered around, waiting for Santa to hurry up and come, then we got to open presents from him to get Christmas started! You might laugh, but my brother and I will sing along to Hilary Duff and Lil’ Romeo’s (rap) song to ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_GPF3elJHY) – I love it and it makes me so proud that he knows that song and sings it with me:) I’m sorry but, he just is a great brother and I love him, am so thankful for him and just wish he was here with me and others who love him so much and think so much of him, this Christmas. He just needs to believe in himself and so do you and so do I:) So come on over and lets dance and sing and get some Christmas Cookies ready, because you know what Santa loves….?

Christmas can bring such wonderful memories. Christmas also brings the tacky re-gifted Christmas present – fruitcake but not Grandmother’s Gluten-Free Fruitcake. Some people don’t like fruitcake, cringing at the thought of getting it and just pass it along as joke to next person. That’s understandable because the store bought fruitcakes are loaded with all sorts of flavorings and liqueurs and sugars and who knows what else. BUT, I have a recipe that will change your mind about fruitcake forever! You’ll never one to re-gift this one because you’ll want to have and it and savor it all for yourself! This fruitcake is passed on from my Grandmother, who always made it year after year and lovingly taught me how to make it, passing on the much anticipated fruitcake family tradition on to me. That day so many years ago, when I first made this fruitcake with my Grandmother created such fun memories that I now look back on and am so thankful of that time I was able to spend with her, bake with her and laugh with her bringing in the Christmas celebrations.
My Grandmother’s Gluten-Free Fruitcake is one you are going to love sharing with others (if you can part with it yourself), with friends and family alike. You’ll find them asking for it year after year. Put on an apron, don’t forget to turn on some Christmas music, maybe grab a friend to help with all the cutting and hand scraping (I’ll explain:). Get ready to laugh and rejoice while getting a little fruity and a little messy!:) Let’s get a fruitcaking! Continue reading →
