Your Guide to Holiday Eating

This time of year is my absolute favorite. So. much. good. food! And we all know how much I like food. So guys, grab a drink (preferably something bubbly and fun), it’s time to have a serious talk.

You’re going to either be going to or hosting holiday parties over the next 6-8 weeks (some of us like to celebrate things longer than others. Don’t judge!). As a host, you’re responsible for quite a bit of food and that can be overwhelming. As a guest, you need to bring something. Wine/booze is always a good bet, but sometimes your host wants you to help out with the second best part of parties: food. Do not be a jerk and take the easy route, bringing something like crackers and cheez-whiz to a party! (First of all, ew.) You need to bring something mostly homemade. And I’m sharing the easy recipes below that will help you fool party guests into thinking you’re a kitchen pro.

Whether you’re looking for something to bring to Thanksgiving (this week, eeek!) or hosting your own holiday party and looking for great recipes, here are some of my favorite recipes I’ve made over the years. All of these yummies are finger-friendly, which is perfect for leaving your other hand free for that delicious glass of wine or spiked punch. I have my priorities straight. Without further ado, here’s what you need to be making and eating this holiday season:

Perfect Party Spinach DipTake a bite of spinach dip!

Garlic Chicken PuffsSo easy and so good!

Pecan Pie BarsWay better than pecan pie!

The Most Amazing Mixed NutsMixed nuts, ready to enjoy!

Turkey Spinach Roll-UpsTurkey Spinach Roll Ups

Caprese SkewersBite-sized caprese salad!

Magic Cookie BarsSo much magic in these bars!

I’ve tried both making and eating all of these, so you know they have my seal of approval. So, I’ll be expecting an invite to your party and that the food will be scrumptious. Deal?

About In Natalie's Shoes

I’m a twenty-something food fanatic. By day, I’m working for a non-profit, by night I’m dreaming of becoming a domestic goddess, creating adorable crafts to gift and engineering delicious home cooked meals for the fabulous dinner parties I’ll one day throw. I love to travel, locally, regionally… heck, even internationally, I don’t discriminate too much when it comes to a new destination. I am a little obsessed with taking photos of the food I eat, whether I make it or pay to eat it. It is my firm belief that a girl can never have enough purses or too many shoes. I plan to fill this lovely little blog with my adventures in food, travel, and craftiness. I hope you enjoy!
