Treasured family recipes bring us comfort every year, but the real magic lies in the memories made while sharing time with family in the kitchen. Style collected recipe cards from the community and prepared a sampling of holiday recipes from local folks, and the memories they’ve made over the years.

"On the frigid Christmas mornings growing up back in Michigan, there was nothing better than waking up to the smell of my mother's Praline French Toast. Just the thought of it warms my stomach!"
– Gary Zsigo

Praline French Toast
8 slices French bread (1 pound loaf sliced)
8 eggs
1-1/2 cups half & half
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Mix first five ingredients and pour over French bread in a 9- x 13-inch pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Uncover in the morning and transfer to a greased 9- x 13-inch glass pan. For the topping, mix the following ingredients together: brown sugar, butter, maple syrup and nuts; pour over bread. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until puffed and browned.
