Blake and Gwen started one tradition of their own. Each year, they find a new recipe to make for their family’s holiday gathering. But they don’t go for something simple…they intentionally seek out a “difficult” recipe to recreate.
“We go out of our way to find a recipe. And it’s always got to be the most difficult thing you can imagine…” Blake said.
Gwen said it “makes [her] really uncomfortable” to try such unusual recipes, because her family was “very traditional” about Christmas while she was growing up:
“So the idea that now I somehow have control over what we’re actually putting in our mouths at Christmas, it makes me feel like I’m going to get in trouble…So anyways, thank you for pushing me, pushing me to find new creative ways to feed our family,” Gwen said to Blake.
