I have now created a special topic for each day of the week! The week of Christmas might be a little sparce since I will be out of town, but I will try my best to bring you the best!
Anway, Fridays are now "Foodie Fridays"! I figure this is a good day to start, since the holiday baking and eating season is in full force. You will be able to find all kinds of recipes, tips and stories of the foodie kind each Friday.
So, without delay, here you are:
I figure most people will be attending several parties the next week and bringing their recipes and potlucks. I have put together a few easy, delicious and inexpensive dishes for you to take to all of those parties!
The Famous Cookie Exchange:
I think all of us have participated in a cookie exchange at one time or another. Here is a link to several different cookie exchange recipes with lots of extra hints and tips!
Edible Gifts and FREE Gift Tags:
I know that there are a lot of people out there that enjoy making people they know edible gifts. It's always a great, fun idea and for those on a budget it's a great money saver.
Here is a link to a lot of edible gift ideas http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/Entertaining/HolidaysEvents/HolidayHowToCenter/EdibleGifts.aspx and a link to FREE, printable gift tags. Just use colored paper and voila! http://www.kraftfoods.com/assets/pdf/KraftGiftTags_US.pdf
Easy Peasy Potlucks:
Here are a few ideas for all of those parties you will be attending.
These are DELICIOUS cheesy potatoes that I have been making for a long time. They're always a hit. Also, if you have vegetarians to cook for you can substitute the cream of chicken soup with cream of mushroom. You get the same great taste! http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/cheesy-potatoes-95131.aspx
I made these Holiday Cheese Truffles last year and they were delicious. Just beware, they make A LOT! http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/cheesy-potatoes-95131.aspx
Jell-O is a popular and inexpensive treat at any party. A guaranteed hit! http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/easy-holiday-ribbon-bowl-76282.aspx
Feel free to let me know if you have any fun and delicious holiday recipes. We'd love to hear them!
