The Holidays around my house are always big, especially when it comes to cooking.
Cooking is our passion, it's one of those family traditions that is passed down from each generation.
Roo is even passionate about it and that makes me tickled pink.
There's something about the cooler (not cold because its still in the 80s in Florida) weather that makes us want to spend all our spare time in the kitchen whipping up yummy treats and delicious meals.
One favorite family tradition in our family is celebrating local flavors.
We're from the South and very Southern so we like to do it up the way that Southerns do.
We fry almost everything.
Yes, not always the healthiest option but hey, it's the Holidays and calories during the Holidays don't count... right?
Following family traditions, we love nothing more than sliding Fried Chicken on our holiday table.
My favorite Fried Chicken recipe is super simple to follow and anyone can do it.
All I do is cut up some boneless, skinless chicken breasts, coat them in egg, then toss them in flour mixed up with yummy spices and then drop those bad boys into boiling hot oil.
I let them cook for about twenty minutes (depending on how hot that oil is) and then I enjoy them.
Local flavor and family traditions are big to me and my family and they are very important to Winn Dixie. Winn-Dixie is a great local store that always have the ingredients I need for any recipe. Winn Dixie is working on their latest e-cookbook, the Holiday Recipe to Impress E-Cookbook. It's a collection of great recipes to slide on to your Holiday table and maybe even start some new family traditions of your own. The e-cookbook is full of amazing recipes. If you have your own local flavor recipe to submit, you can do so very easily and you can possibly have your recipe featured in the e-cookbook!
More information about the Holiday Recipe to Impress E-Cookbook can be found on their website here: http://ow.ly/fGShS.
Make sure you check out the Winn Dixie Holiday Website. If you get stumped on what to decorate your table with or what tips and tricks you need to make your Holiday dinner easier to manage.
Winn-Dixie will be hosting a Twitter Party on December 18th @ 9pm to talk local flavor, traditions and recipes. You can RSVP for the event here: http://twtvite.com/WDLocalHoliday
