As the weather gets cooler and we start to bundle up, our thoughts turn to home and the upcoming holidays.
Thanksgiving and Christmas seem to run together as we take time to meet with family and friends, to celebrate the many gifts of God and also His greatest Gift: His Son, Jesus Christ.
One thing that is always present during these weeks is food, or more specifically, comfort food. We asked some of our artists and friends what kinds of food they enjoyed around the holidays and we know they are going to make you ready for the traditional feasts as well. If you want the recipes, please contact the person who submitted the dish title.
Without further ado…get ready to enjoy some great cooking as SGN Scoops goes home for the holidays!
Jay Parrack and Vocal Event. Jay’s favorite is Turkey Salad from Steve ‘n’ Jan’s BBQ. Darren’s favorite is dressing. Bubba doesn’t list a favorite so we can only guess that he likes all dishes equally. www.facebook.com/pages/Jay-Parrack-and-Vocal-Event/140018069469560
The Amundruds, Gospel music artists, enjoy their cabbage rolls. “Our Grandma, our mom’s mother (Nana) used to make this often at Thanksgiving.” http://www.theamundruds.com/
Abby Paskvan, soloist. “Here is a picture of the turkey I cooked last year for my family. We usually have about 40 people for Thanksgiving at my parent’s house. I love to cook so I was in charge of one of the three turkeys we cooked to feed everyone!” http://www.abbypaskvan.com/

Paige Givens, vocalist and writer with SGN Scoops, tells us: “My favorite holiday food is peanut butter balls. My husband and I make them together every year and they’re great, even though we had an unfortunate incident the first year we were married: we put three bars of paraffin wax in the chocolate sauce instead of the recipe’s 3/4 of a bar! Needless to say, they were a bit waxy and stuck to everyone’s teeth! You could’ve lit those things up as candles! They are now a crowd favorite though!” www.paigegivens.com
