Link your way to Kwanzaa feasts 

Kwanzaa kicks off Dec. 26, followed by seven days of celebrating African-American culture and values. Food is an important part of the festivities, which include the Karamu feast on New Year's Eve. Whether or not you observe Kwanzaa, this is a good time to explore its delicious traditions.

A wealth of websites offer history and recipes, like the Sistahspace Kwanzaa Center.

Another site is strictly devoted to coconut dishes that are a cornerstone of the Karamu feast. Find out how to make crispy coconut chicken fingers, coconut biscuits -- the possibilities are impressive.

Sankofa's Kwanzaa Page has recipes for many ethnic temptations, such as sweet-potato fritters and peanut soup with red-pepper flakes and baked okra croutons.
