Discuss how to change things up a bit at your home this holiday season by introducing the idea of a dessert bar. Send out a mass email to all guests, big and small, and have each member attending bring a different dessert. For the kids, they may want to bring brownies or cookies they made themselves. A favorite aunt may wish to break out the old recipe book and bring a traditional dessert. Your new daughter-in-law may be encouraged to bring something no one on your side of the family has ever tried – a tried and true recipe from her family tree.
