Christmas Morning Real Food Recipes - Live Simply

I’ve talked about it a lot this week.


A deep desire to begin, as a family, to foster a sense of tradition on Christmas morning. Not something forced, but rather food, activities, and memories my children can look forward to every year. Knowing Christmas morning is special. A morning of celebration and time together as family.

Preparing a special sampling of food is one of those traditions. For our family that means “The Annual Marr Family Cinnamon Roll”, fresh eggs (from our lovely ladies), and pastured bacon.

I’ve asked fellow bloggers to share their favorite Christmas food traditions in hopes that you may find recipes to enjoy with your family, recipes that foster celebration and tradition.
