Dark Fruit Cake (Mom Peterson's Recipe)

This is another of the recipes from my mother's old cookbook. This one notes that it came from her mother. Not sure of its origin before that. This will make the Dark Fruit Cake that I use to have over Christmas when I was growing up. My mom use to soak it in brandy for almost a month before Christmas.

Scotch Oats Dressing

This is an old family recipe that we had every Christmas from quite a while back. It is simple, filling and entirely Scottish in every way.

Tourtière (Montreal Style) (Mom's Recipe)

This recipe has been in my family for years. It is a Tourtière, meat pie, and is what I grew up with every Christmas Eve. Commonly served with either chili sauce or green tomato chow chow.
