**Q&A with Roxanne Snopek**

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Brand new flannelette pajamas! I almost gave that up, thinking my girls had outgrown the tradition but boy, did they let me know they have not. This one, it seems is a keeper. So now I get some for me, too!

What is your most unusual holiday memory?

Our first daughter’s first Christmas happened when she was recovering from a nasty gastro-intestinal virus. Nasty. Burn-the-nursery nasty. Here’s how the timing went: she was fire-hose sick on Christmas Eve. We celebrated with our wan-looking little girl on Christmas day – I roasted Cornish game hens. It was just the three of us, after all. On Boxing Day, my husband and I learned that the virus was contagious. We spent the day rotating, bedroom, bathroom, cough, your-turn-to-throw-crackers-at-the-now-healthy-and-bored-toddler.

I’ve never eaten a Cornish game hen since.

What was your favorite moment under the mistletoe?

Each year, when my husband and I look at each other on Christmas Eve and know that a) everything’s done and b) we still love each other.

What’s your favorite Christmas carol or holiday movie?

Love, Actually.

What’s the sexiest gift you ever got/gave?

I do not have sufficient self-esteem to share this information. Also, if I’ve given a sexy gift, it was probably by accident.

This or That?

Peppermint Mocha or Pumpkin Spiced Latte?

Pumpkin spice.

Egg Nog or Apple Cider?

Apple cider.

Themed Christmas Tree or HodgePodge?

Hodge-podge. It’s all about the sentiment behind the ornaments.

Old School Bulbs or Icicle Lights?

A little of both.

During this Holiday Season, is it better to Give or Receive?

Definitely giving. Though I won’t complain if there’s a little something under the tree for me, too.

**Mince-meat tarts**

Message from Roxanne:

I use to be the pie-lady of the family. In fact, I baked everything from scratch, including all our bread. My pies were legendary, so naturally, my contribution to Christmas dinner was a dozen mince-meat tarts, an apple pie, a pumpkin pie and a lemon meringue pie. Then one day, I just lost my touch. Plus, I got busy and discovered frozen pie shells.

Desserts Prep Time: a bit. Cook Time: a bit more. Serves: Me. And whoever else likes mincemeat is invited to share.

  • One jar mincemeat.
  • One package frozen pastry tart shells.
  1. Preheat oven to HOT.
  2. Spoon mincemeat into tart shells.
  3. Bake until done.
