What's Cooking for Christmas?

What are you cooking for Christmas? I know lots of people are still recovering from Thanksgiving and are looking for a little something different than a repeat of last months meal. Maybe instead of a turkey or ham you can try serving up a tender beef or juicy port? Also don't forget the seafood! What do you do to keep your Christmas Feast "Spicy"?
Here are a few suggested recipes we've found to try something new for Christmas than the traditional. Life Chef suggests we "start off with Crispy skin, juicy meat, fragrant aromatic stuffing... what more could you want?"
Roasted Cornish Hens with Jasmine Rice, Cherries and Pepitas by Life Chef a.k.a Chef Asata

2 Cornish hens, trimmed of excess fat and rinsed
½ cup dried cherries
½ cup pepitas or pumpkin seeds
1 tsp vanilla
1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
2 cups of COOKED jasmine rice
4 bay leaves
salt and pepper
Season hens with salt and pepper and place 2 bay leaves into the cavity of each hen. Drizzle with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.Remove hens from oven and let cool slightly. Drain off the liquid from the hens and RESERVE about ¼-1/2 cup. Meanwhile combine the cooked rice, cherries, pumpkin seeds, vanilla nd cinnamon stick with ¼ cup of the roasted hen juices.Fill each bird with the rice mixture after the hen’s have cooled enough to handle. Put the remaining rice into the baking dish, with the stuffed hens on top.Return to the oven and bake at 400 degrees another 20-30 minutes.

Glazed Autumn Root Vegetables by Gina and Pat Neeley

1½ cup olive oil
1 pound or 3 cups rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1-inch bits
3 cup about 2 turnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
½ pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
½ pound parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup onion, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch wedges
2 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 cup water
2 cup honey
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss the first seven ingredients with salt and pepper to taste in a large roasting pan. Pour water over the vegetables, cover with foil, and cook for 40 minutes until just tender. Whisk together the honey and vinegar, uncover the vegetables, and stir in the honey and vinegar. Cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until slightly golden. Sprinkle with parsley; serve.

Boozy Baked Pears With Ginger and Brown Sugar by Gina and Pat Neeley

1/3 cup brandy or apple cider
1/2 cup raisins, golden and regular
1/4 cup crystallized ginger
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup water
¾ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoon butter
6 item Bosc pears, peeled, cut in half and cored
Place first five ingredients in a small saucepot. Heat until warmed through, swirl the pan to coat the dried fruit, and set aside to soak. Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, crumble the butter into the mixture until it forms a slightly moist crumb topping. Fill each pear with some of the mixture. Place the pears in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish; pour the brandy mixture evenly over the pears. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 375°F. Uncover, gently flip the pears upside down—it's fine if some of the mixture falls out of the center. Bake for an additional 30 minutes. Transfer the pears to serving bowls; spoon the juices and fruit over. For added flair, serve each pear with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt or sprinkle ¾ cup of chopped walnuts on top.

Where are the Happy Couples?

Okay, am I alone or is anyone else just plain OVER the media fixation on bad relationships, cheating spouses, and ugly divorces? With the latest being the Tiger Woods accident and alleged domestic squabble, and right before that the Fergie and Josh stripper scandal, and before that the Toni Braxton announcement of pending divorce from long time hubby and the list goes on and on and on.

No wonder the divorce rate is so high! Is it possible with all the negativity that is being forced fed to us that are minds are unknowing beginning programmed to expect and accept failure?

Whew! After that being said Spicy Wifey would like to shout out and celebrate some HAPPY COUPLES! Some couples that we see making a good go of it! Shout out to all the Spicy Wifey's and Spousy's making it work and having a good time doing it. Don't get me wrong I know that it takes work and things won't always be perfect but let's celebrate love, commitment, and togetherness. Let spread encouragement, inspiration and stories of triumph.

The Spicy Wifey Feature Couple is:
Paula Patton and Robin Thicke

The gorgeous actress, Paula Patton, is co-starring in the Oscar buzzing film Precious in theaters now. Robin's latest album "Sex Therapy" is due to drop December 15th. HUMMM love the title Robin! No wonder they are expecting their first child this spring! Congratulations to a beautiful couple soon to be beautiful parents.

~Keep it Spicy!
