'Tis the Season for twinkling lights, holiday spirit, quality time, giving the gift of love, and... FOOD! Every family has their own traditions around the holiday season, and the dishes at the dinner table are no different. Gathering around the table is always a special occasion, whether Dad carves the meat, Mom makes your favorite casserole, or Grandma bakes her world famous desserts (you know she'll never tell you the secret ingredients no matter how many times you ask).
This year looks a little different for most families, and you might not be able to enjoy all of the dishes you look forward to every year. But our Rock Stars are keeping the spirit strong by sharing their favorites with you!
Emily, Virtual Sales Ambassador: Derby Pie
"My favorite is my Grandma's Derby Pie. She uses pecans instead of the traditional walnuts that are called for in the recipe, so it's almost like a Chocolate Pecan Pie. Delicious!"
Allie, Design Assistant: Picadillo & Arroz Con Leche
"My Abuela loved to cook and her kitchen was the center of her social life. Friends and family would always stop by during mealtime in hopes to get some of Maria's cooking! She would always make Picadillo and Arroz Con Leche for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The slow simmer for both recipes would permeate our home and it always reminds me of when our family was all together.
Diane, Sales Ambassador: Stuffing
"It's my mom's stuffing! Super simple but delicious - So good!! It's the only thing I go for seconds on!"
-Day Old White Bread
-Chopped Celery & Onion (sauteed in butter)
-Salt and Pepper
Cameron, Sales Manager: Cinnamon Pinwheels and Raspberry Sauce
"So simple and so pretty! They are delicious! Crescent rolls, cinnamon, sugar, butter and pecans for the pinwheels. And raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice for the sauce."
Julie, Design Studio Manager: Red Velvet Cheesecake
"I love making this dish with my Mom. We always take this to our extended family Christmas gathering and everyone loves it and looks forward to it. It's one of the most delicious cheesecakes I've ever had."

My experience with Garman homes has been absolutely fantastic! I can't say that about some of the other builders I work with but the team at Garman is unbelievable. The difference is that they treat the buyers like family and they treat the new home as if it were their own. They have an amazing process which makes buyers feel very engaged and excited. No one is ever left wondering what is happening with the construction of their new home. They even have an on-time guarantee! If the home isn't completed when promised, they will contribute towards closing costs. Although I seriously doubt this has ever been necessary. Their seamless process gets it done!
