The Holiday Tips I Have For You



I am a firm believer in many a list of what I want to make way ahead of time.


There's nothing worse than starting a recipe and not having all the ingredients in the house to make it.


Some of my favorite items to keep on hand are fall spices like cinnamon, ginger, allspice and for sure cloves.


I also like to get red and green cherries, dried cranberries and fresh cranberries along with fresh mint and other herbs to add as garnish.


You can make all your Holiday recipes festive with just a few ingredients added at the end to perk it up on your plate.


Roasted vegetables are my favorite to make and the easiest!
