While I don’t generally share many food related posts around here, the holidays usually have me scrambling to make dishes to bring along to parties or serve when I have guests over – and I tend to start googling easiest, but still semi-impressive holiday dishes the day before (or even the day of) a party.
So to save myself as well as you from doing so, I put together a list of holiday dishes that are quick and easy to make – so next time you’re invited to a party where you need to contribute or even if you’re being brave and hosting a meal yourself, you have a go-to list to help save you time and some sanity.
As a side note, I did not include salt or pepper in my ingredient list amounts. If you’re lacking salt and pepper in your kitchen you have a whole other set of problems you need to sort through before starting on any of these amazing recipes. 😉
