When family and friends gather at our home for New Year celebrations, one of my favorite things to pull together is a New Year Charcuterie Board – easily customized with cheese, meats, fruits, nuts and crackers. There’s no better way to ring in New Years Eve or have a quiet and relaxed celebration on New Years Day!
“Here we come a Wassailing"...
Slow Cooker Mulled Wine is the perfect warm winter cocktail – and welcoming guests to your home with mugs of steamy hot mulled wine has been a holiday tradition for centuries! As a bonus, it also fills your whole house with the seasonal scent of fruit and spices… perfect for holiday entertaining or a quiet night by the fireplace!
What could be better than Cranberry Raspberry Baked Brie in Puff Pastry with Spiced Pecans? Buttery, flaky pastry cocooning creamy and warm brie cheese, bursting with flavorful Cranberry Raspberry Sauce and caramelized spicy pecans is the most luxurious and rich appetizer ever – perfect for holiday entertaining or a quiet night by the fireplace! So easy to make, impressively delicious, and incredibly good!
FAVORITE CHRISTMAS COOKIES - 2020
What a wild and crazy year 2020 has been! It started like no other, and has been a roller coaster ride of emotions for all of us. Probably the hardest thing has been not celebrating holidays and special events with our loved ones - those hugs and kisses are certainly the best things in life.
Like many others, we celebrated small this year. With four of our daughters and their families living close by, we decided to bring Christmas to them this year, dropping off baskets of homemade sweets and treats, Christmas gifts and a Christmas ham on Christmas Eve Eve. On Christmas Day we'll celebrate with each other by live video conferencing. As hard as this year has been, it truly has brought all of us even closer.
Wishing you and your family love, peace, stability and security, and most of all, good health this Christmas and in the new year to come.
