Weekly theme: "Holiday Food Art" or "Cook Your Art"

Calling all holiday chefs, bakers and bartenders!

For this week's theme, Marianne Milzoff suggests that we share our favorite holiday recipes by turning them into pieces of art. Handwritten and illustrated recipes can be very inviting and heartwarming such as in "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest," a vegetarian recipe book written and illustrated by Mollie Katzen. It's a great way for us to be festive together even though we are physically apart. 

So, search through your Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah, and other seasonal cookbooks and select your favorite recipe to illustrate: Cranberry bread, Stollen, gingerbread cookies, etc. But you don't have to limit your creativity to the dessert table. Try illustrating a recipe for a main dish or a seasonal drink like Rum and Bourbon Eggnog. 

No recipes to share? How about drawing your traditional holiday dinner menu, special family dish or table setting? Have fun with this and be as traditional or as whimsical as you like!
