It’s Christmas week and it’s not complete with all the baking and lots of cooking so I have put together a Holiday Recipe Roundup!
We love spending time in the kitchen this time of year and no baking or cooking project is off the table. We adore having traditions and these are some of my fave recipes and what my family and friends ask for each year!
First up: Chocolate covered Peanut butter Ritz crackers: These are probably one of the best things you will ever eat. The mix of the salty from the cracker and the sweet from the chocolate are beyond good. Like, you may have dreams about the next time you can have them, so make a big batch!
Secret Family Recipe Cheeseball: This is always one of your favorites! I make this family cheeseball recipe for Thanksgiving, holiday parties, Christmas, and New Years! Basically anytime I’m invited to bring along a dish to share, this is my go to recipe. It is sooo good! I swear, it is a crowd pleaser and you will be asked to bring it time and again!
Whole Wheat Gingerbread Cinnamon Roll Pancakes: These are a Christmas morning tradition! The holidays are the time of year when everyone splurges a bit with decadent meals and quality family time. I’ve combined both to bring you my whole wheat gingerbread cinnamon roll pancakes and they are SO simple to make!
White Chocolate Jam Drop Cookies: These are almost too pretty to eat. Almost. They are so pretty and festive! My family won’t let a Christmas go by without making a double batch of these yummy treats. Gift them to friends too and they will ask for them every year!
Peanut Butter Balls: These are one of my most asked about recipes. Perfectly creamy and soooo chocolatey. They are decadent but small so you can have a bunch but don’t feel toooo guilty about it! 🙂 I mean, do calories even count this time of year?
One of my favorite Holiday Recipes is this Wassail Cider Recipe: not only does this taste so amazing, it makes your house smell INCREDIBLE. In my house, Wassail is made each holiday season starting with Thanksgiving. I love this spiced drink, and you can serve it hot or cold. I prefer Hot! It’s like comfort in a cup!
It always seems to taste better when you make it in a Mackenzie-Childs dutch oven! Just saying!
Next up on my Holiday Recipe Roundup: Skinny Baked Pears with Pecans and Honey: These are seriously like a dessert only simply put, pretty healthy. With all natural ingredients, the secret is baking them perfectly. They are so delicious and SO comforting!
Simple Sausage and Sourdough Stuffing: This is like a form of crack. It is so flavorful, truly to die for! It is the ideal side for any holiday meal because it’s super easy to pull together but everyone just drools over it!
