All We Want for Christmas...

Digest blog staffers on this year's Christmas wishes and dishes.

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!"
