This holiday season we're featuring the BEST CHRISTMAS RECIPES that have been inherited from the women in our families. Our team over here at Today's Mama is sharing our very favorite, most nostalgic, holiday recipes and we've invited some of our friends across the internet to do the same.

Speaking of the things we inherit from the women in our family. Let's talk DNA for a minute!

This holiday recipe series is brought to you by Myriad Genetics, the makers of the myRisk Hereditary Cancer test. Did you know that if a member of your family (even extended family like aunts and cousins) has been diagnosed with cancer UNDER THE AGE OF 50 that there is a chance that a gene mutation may be present in your family? The good news? There's a simple DNA test that can let you know if you've got that same gene.

Myriad Genetics’ Hereditary Cancer Quiz helps you to assess whether you might be a good candidate for testing. This quiz can help you get the information you need to discuss your risk of cancer with your healthcare provider. Take the Myriad Hereditary Cancer Quiz HERE.

Marshmallow Fudge Recipe from the Kitchen of April Clark Davis

Every single year growing up we made fudge and toffee for Christmas to give to the neighbors. Our fudge is special because of it's unique flavor and the marshmallows that we freeze ahead of time so they don't melt into the fudge! It wasn't until I was teaching a friend how to make it that I realized how many parts of the recipe seemed more superstitious than necessary...but now that I have my own children OF COURSE I'm keeping all of the superstition-it's just more fun that way!
