Just scrolling through all the pictures can be overwhelming (to say the least!).
As a food blogger, I completely relate to that. While I’ve got roughly one million boards just designated to food, I’ve also got binders at home (yes, real physical binders) filled with recipes I’m just waiting to try, notebooks full of recipe ideas, and lists of recipes I want to make and share with you before each holiday/season ends!
So…when you scroll through Pinterest and sift through cooking magazines unsure about what recipes you should make before Christmas descends upon us…I hear you. I understand.
Today, I thought it would be fun to bring you 10 Christmas recipes that are tried, true, and loved by my family.
If they get the okay from my kiddos, then I know they are good!
