Do you have entertaining planned this holiday season?
I think we all might have at least one occasion over the next few weeks where we need to entertain family and friends. And if you're like me, you're running out of time getting everything put together and planned so you can have an amazing holiday season! We are hosting Christmas Day with my family again this year and I'm already starting to plan what to serve. I'm going to share with you today a few easy ideas for all our holiday entertaining!
Welcome back to Foodie Friends Friday linky party #225!
We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving last week. We took a break from our party so we all could celebrate and not have to to spend so much time on the computer over the weekend. We can't wait to see what you're sharing with us this week!
We do and one of the best things about it is decorating it for Christmas. There are so many different ways you can add decorations to the mantel for Christmas! I put together a roundup of different ideas for us to all to find new ideas and inspiration from this year. Even if you don't have a fireplace, you can still create a mantel type of display! I did that for years in our first house. Make sure you check below for those photos.
It's really a favorite breakfast recipe for me and my family. A few years ago I made an overnight French toast casserole and shared it on my little blog and it quickly became the number one recipe on the blog but the photos were so-so. I've made the recipe a few times, for special holidays, and it's always come out delicious except sometimes the center of the casserole would be under cooked. I tried cooking it longer but then the edges would be overcooked. This weekend I came up with a solution that takes this breakfast casserole to another level of yumminess!
We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving celebration with your family. Now it's on to Christmas! And if you're us, you're already planning delicious cookies to make for Christmas. We put together a great round up of cookie recipes from the past few weeks that you all submitted to our party as this week's Host Favorites.
And if you are shopping online for Christmas gifts, today is a GREAT day. A lot of retailers are offering amazing deals! I have a few I'm going to share with you today and first up is my favorite place to order photo gifts from PhotoBarn. These are amazing deals and I really hope you'll click on a few of the photos to check out what PhotoBarn is offering all of us this year! These PhotoBoards make great gifts for everyone on your Christmas list and don't forget to grab a few for you!
It's that time of year again when everyone starts their Christmas shopping and I have a HUGE surprise for you! I recently became a Pampered Chef Consultant and I couldn't be more happier. I am only working my business online which is so much fun. I figure, if some bloggers can sell leggings, why can't I, a food blogger, sell wonderful items for you to use in your kitchen? Come join me with my very first Black Friday Online Party!
Are you getting excited or a little freaked out over all the work that needs to get done in the next 24 hours? I love the day before Thanksgiving.

Here are a few last minute tips for all of us to help get ready for tomorrow.
