How crucial is good food to the holiday season? Let us count the ways. The revered green bean casserole you bring to Mom's every year. The convenient stockpot meal you can count on after a long day at the mall. The emergency cheese-and-cracker stash you keep for last-minute visitors. And the cookies . . . oh, the cookies . . .
