I can't believe Christmas is almost here! I am so excited and yet kind of sad at the same time. I don't want it to be over!! I could have Christmas all year long...the music...the twinkle lights...the cards in my mailbox...the food...
...Speaking of food....are you ready? Do you know what you're making? Whether you're going to a big sit-down dinner or an appetizer party, the mama has you covered. Here are my tried and true favorite bites for the Christmas season. This is the time to be merry...not the time to be stressing over making party food.
Sarah's Pinwheels are a huge hit at a party! I love them because they're simple, can be made in advance and travel easily.
Go ahead and double this recipe. Trust me. They will all be eaten and people will be begging you for more. My Ultimate Sausage Balls will take center stage at any party!
Speaking of being devoured...these Southwestern Egg Rolls will be gone in a flash! They are the perfect party companion.
Ok...what if you're going potluck? You need a couple of good casserole recipes to take to a party...here are some of my favorites for this time of year...
This Spinach-Artichoke Ravioli is one of my most popular and most requested dishes. It's easy, it's meatless, it's a side dish or a main supper...it's perfect for potluck.
Another great potluck dish? My Taco Pasta. This casserole is easy, easy but packs a punch with lots of flavor. This is a fun alternative to an Italian pasta casserole.
What if you need to make some Christmas desserts? You know the Mama has you covered in the sweets department...
My Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. They will leave you speechless. Easy, easy and just soooooo good!
Whether you make a big cake or mini ones...the Egg Nog Bundt Cake tastes like Christmas in every bite.
I am obsessed with these cookies. If they're in my house, I will literally lie in bed at night and think about how I should just get up and eat them all. They are so good. Words that I type really can't express how much I love them. I love my Peppermint Sugar Cookies.
And the perfect finale to any Christmas dinner...my Candy Cane Bundt Cake. It's easy, it's festive, it screams Christmas.
