Post Christmas Meal Ideas

Happy Post Christmas! Okay, it's a few days after Christmas and you might be getting tired of leftovers, whatever they are. Don't get me wrong - I could live on leftovers, especially the holiday variety. But, sadly, my husband does not share that sentiment.

Oh, he's not above a reheated dinner...but he prefers something new. I honestly think he just likes new food, and gets bored eating the same stuff three nights in a row. (I have taken to freezing the leftovers and resurrecting them later in the month. But don't tell him that.

Anyhow, in the spirit of the season and giving I found you a few recipe ideas to spice up your holiday leftover blues. Enjoy!

Holiday Snacks

It's that time of year - snack time! The holidays may mean celebrating Christmas with family and friends, but they also signal our taste buds to get some serious snacking in before January 1st. Most of us are either staying in where it's warm and toasty with not much else to do but...snack, or we are headed out to parties, pageants and plays to frolic, make merry and...snack!

Whether you are a sweet or salty snacky person, I've collected just a few recipes here for you to try for your next holiday snack attack. Create these tasty little treats for home or to share at your next holiday gathering.

Amish Caramel Corn

Apple Crisp

Bacon Jack Deviled Eggs

Blackberry Muffins

Butter Cream Brownies

And so, the busiest season for shopping, sharing and snacking is here! Thankfully it only lasts a few weeks and then we all make resolutions to give up the snacking. Ah well...

Welcome to Holiday Candy Land!

At our house, we have a tradition to play a few solid games of Candy Land at Christmas time while making Christmas goodies, candies and treats. In between batches of fudge and decorating sugar cookies, I sacrifice my last thread of holiday sanity to a game I know I can win, but I never do.

(It's way more fun to watch your four-year-old's eyes light up when they realize they just drew the winning blue card.) It's about the giving right? Back to the Christmas treats...whether you are making just enough to share at the office or oodles of goodies to spread around town, try some of our favorite holiday candy recipes. You won't be disappointed!

Caramel Pecan Fudge


Cherry Peanut Butter Balls

Chocolate Coffee Truffles

Chocolate Peppermint Truffles

Enjoy your holidays and create some candy bliss for the neighbors with some of our favorite candy recipes! Visit us on Facebook to share your favorite Christmas goodies or visit Alicia's Recipes for all sorts of recipe ideas.

And if your four-year-old wants to play Candy Land, practice losing graciously.
