Hello friends, it's time for another round of My Five Favorites with Pam from Simple Details and Lisa from Shine Your Light. Kris from Driven by Decor is hard at work finishing up her family room for the One Room Challenge, she'll be back with us next month.
Today we're sharing our favorite recipes for the holidays. I focused on the recipes that are my go-to, tried and true winners to take to parties or to serve when hosting a gathering in our home.
We're so happy to welcome our guest Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home. She truly does have a classic, casual style that is evidenced in her home and the homes she works on for her clients. I love how she helped one client freshen up her dining room and entry without spending a lot of money or replacing key pieces. You must see the before and after, truly a remarkable transformation with not much more than paint and hard work!
But, as pretty as her decorating is, Mary Ann is here to share her favorite holiday recipes with us. I can't wait to see what she, Pam, and Lisa have to share with us, I'm ready to try something new!
As I shared in the post for this recipe, it's a staple at every holiday gathering for our family. It's a good side to accompany your holiday meal, can also be a dessert, and may or may not even stand in for breakfast if there's any left the day after the holiday (not that I would know...).
This is actually a year-round favorite recipe, but it's an especially good appetizer for parties. It uses four simple ingredients, comes together in just a few minutes, and couldn't be easier. The flavors are a good mix of savory, tangy, and creamy.
This recipe sounds strange, but TRUST ME and try it! It really tastes nothing like lemon or iced tea. I can't put my finger on what it does taste like, all I know is I want to guzzle it by the tumbler full when I make it. A great non-alcoholic option for your parties that kids and adults will both love.
This is an old family recipe, and was always a favorite when I was growing up to make with my Mom. I was the chocolate dipper. :) These can be made in advance and kept in the freezer, so you can pull out just as many as you need, let them thaw a bit, and they're ready to go (but they're SO good almost frozen, just soft enough to eat, too!). I like to have these on hand for entertaining, but a bag full also makes a great little gift for a friend or neighbor. If you like butter and sugar, these are for you!
What's your favorite go-to recipe for the holidays? Be sure to head over to Simple Details, Shine Your Light, and Classic Casual Home to check out their favorite recipes, too.
