Holiday Entertaining Made Easy!

The best part of the holidays is getting together with family and friends. Memories are made with the decorating of the tree, caroling and baking cookies. As a matter of fact, I just spent the weekend with my mom, baking gifts and goodies for Christmas. I’m sure my hot rolls would not turn out as well if she were not there supervising me! These memories will stay with me for a very long time.

Many people host Christmas Open House parties or have family visit from out of town. Below are recipes that will be a great addition to your menu planning. Last New Year’s we made the Baked Coconut Shrimp – it was delicious!

There are a few recipes from this collection I will be making this year. The bruschetta recipe below for one, and I can’t wait to try the hot chocolate recipe.

Tell me, what are some of your favorite holiday recipes?

Thinly slice a baguette; arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush with softened butter and sprinkle with salt and sugar. Bake at 425 degrees F until lightly golden, about 7 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Beat 1/2 cup ricotta, 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar and a dash of vanilla extract with a mixer. Spread on the toast rounds. Top with chopped pistachios and shaved chocolate. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.

    That Bruschetta recipe sounds good. Some of our holiday favorites are definitely homemade cranberry sauce (for both Thanksgiving and Christmas!) and just about anything with sweet potatoes. As far as baking..everyone goes nuts over the Snickerdoodles and Browned Butterscocth Bars. Those are dangerous to keep around though 😉
