These crispy cookies are perfect for the holidays. Mexican Wedding Cakes are lightly sweet and flavored with oven- roasted pecans. Not only are they yummy, but they look like little snowballs after they are rolled in a powdered sugar mixture. They are a must-have for any holiday cookie-exchange or party. I always make an extra batch because they get eaten so fast.

This beautiful holiday bread is slightly sweet and topped with strips of dried fruit and a crumb topping. Rosca de Reyes or "King's Cake" is eaten during the winter holidays and makes a wonderful addition to any holiday gathering. You can also get some of this delicious bread delivered to you. MexGrocer offers El Molino Rosca de Reyes that is absolutely delicious. If you would like more information see my review.

This drink is very similar to eggnog but it has a distinctly nuttier flavor due to the pureed almonds that add extra texture to this rich holiday beverage. Egg yolks and milk are the base for it and a cinnamon stick and bit of rum add even more flavor. Even though Rompope is served chilled, it will warm up your insides and keep you feeling cozy.

This rich and creamy Pumpkin Soup is a wonderful soup course for any meal and it's filling enough to be a meal on it's own should you decide to serve it alone. Add this delicious and flavorful soup to your Thanksgiving menu as a perfect starter. Traditional Mexican seasonings of garlic, cumin and oregano add authentic warm flavors to this fall recipe. Top it off with a warm and crusty Bolillo and enjoy.
