My Favorite Holiday Recipes


As I’m sure it is for most of you, the days surrounding Christmas are super hectic for us. In addition to attending multiple holiday parties, I’m always scrambling to figure out what to buy some people on our gift list before we travel up to Kentucky to spend a few days with my family, then come back here to celebrate with my husband’s side of the family.

What this means is that I need to have my food plan figured out well in advance so I’m not fretting over what to make at the last minute! Over the years I’ve definitely created a tried-and-true list of favorite recipes which means I don’t even have to give it a thought any more. Today I wanted to share with you in hopes that it’ll make planning for your upcoming gatherings a little easier!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppadews
