Cooking with Kelly: Have a very Merry foodie Christmas!

Christmas at this house means food, family and presents. We always get up super early to open presents -- we used to set our alarms for 5 a.m. so we could see what Santa brought. After we open gifts, we have a huge brunch. This breakfast is my sister's favorite part of Christmas -- there's eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, hash browns and cinnamon rolls. We spend at least an hour making breakfast, another hour eating and another hour cleaning up.

This year, my sister's boyfriend bought me a Hello Kitty waffle maker and we had adorable little waffles shaped like kitties, bunnies or bears. There are little faces on one side and a waffle pattern on the other. Adorable! Another great gift.
After that, we try on clothes that Santa brought, pick up the living room, get cleaned up and start dinner. My mom puts out appetizers and snacks and we usually eat dinner around 5 p.m. This year, my mother made some delicious prime rib au jus. We used our buffet server again today to keep everything hot. We also had cheesy potatoes, green beans and rolls.

I'm stuffed and I haven't even gotten to the half of it -- taking my KitchenAid stand mixer for a spin! More on that tomorrow.

Hello Kitty waffle maker? I must send my cousin's kid to you. She would not remove her brand new Hello Kitty backpack. And she loves all kinds of food.

Happy holidays!
