We're taking the day off from writing about food and moving right on to wishing on glazed Christmas cookie stars for our favorite dishes.
All I want for Christmas is...
Bill Esparza: "Tamales de camaron, whole shrimp tamales from the state of Nayarit."
Daniela Galarza: "A ham glazed with bourbon, browned sugar, spicy brown mustard, and gingersnap cookies. I think it's Alton Brown's recipe, but someone I met recently told me about it over Thanksgiving and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. Also, a Timpano would be nice."
Randy Clemens: "Family and friends gathered round—in person and in spirit—a nice, warm, cruelty-free meal that's made with love and respect for ourselves, for each other, and for our planet!"
Eddie Lin: "A Shake Shack in Los Angeles!"
Caroline on Crack: "The perfect eggnog, preferably made with coconut milk, 'cause it just ain't a cozy Christmas without that rich winter cocktail. OH! And what Eddie said!"
