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.

Eda's Snickerdoodle Recipe from the Kitchen of Lisa Jorgenson

These are Grandma Eda Bingham's classic Snickerdoodles. My husband and I were lucky enough to live near Grandma while in college. Almost every Sunday Grandma would invite us over for a delicious homemade dinner. She often served tender roast beef, creamy mashed potatoes, and a delightful green salad on her good china. For us poor college students, this dinner tasted like heaven.

And there was always dessert, pies, cakes, and Snickerdoodle cookies. Grandma's Snickerdoodles were classic. She would make a bunch at a time and store them in her Tupperware so that anytime we came to visit, a delicious cookie was waiting for us. Grandma lived a long life. She got breast cancer in her 90's but was able to overcome it, living to be 101 years old. The kindness she showed us lives on every time we make her classic Snickerdoodles.
