holiday bites

I hosted our annual holiday open house this past weekend and I thought I’d share a few of my favorite holiday bite-size hors d’oeuvres.  My philosophy is to serve just 4 or 5 dishes and have plenty of them to go around!  Huge thank you to Elizabeth with Cutting Board Catering for helping out with the food.  While I can’t really share the caterer’s recipes, I hope that these holiday bites will serve as inspiration for your upcoming gatherings.

Pesto Potato Frittata

Most people think of frittatas for breakfast for lunch, but they are a hearty and substantial appetizer.  Bonus: They can be served room temperature.  While any frittata ingredients will do, this pesto and potato version is a crowd pleaser and vegetarian-friendly.

christmas spirits

For your upcoming holiday events, I’m sharing my two favorite holiday cocktails.  Perfect for one or for a crowd!

The White Christmas

I love this cocktail, as it is made by the pitcher which makes it easy to serve for a party.  The delicious peach and rosemary flavors are perfect for the season, but also unexpected.  Find the recipe here.

feeling festive

A weekend visit to Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill has me completely in the Christmas spirit!  I love seeing the festive holiday decorations that grace every inch of Shakertown.  It was the perfect way to usher in the month of December.
