Holiday Recipe Roundup

Hi Guys!  This week I have been thinking about recipes and planning dishes for upcoming holiday parties.  There is always so much good food to eat this time of year, which makes it hard to stay on track.  Today I want to share some of my favorite (not so healthy) recipes and also some healthier ones that I want to try out this year.  Feel free to share your favorites with everyone in the comments.  


Strawberry Bread

My absolute favorite holiday treat is my mom’s homemade strawberry bread.  It has a strawberry cream cheese filling, and I literally could eat an entire loaf by myself.  It’s a good thing that we only have this once a year.  It’s easy to make and a loaf of it makes a great gift for a friend or neighbor.

Snowball Cookies

I also love snowball cookies.  They are so quick and easy and delicious!  I made several batches last year for different parties and they were a hit every time! There are so many versions of this recipe floating around.  The one I used is below.

Sausage Balls

I love sausage balls!  They are so dangerous though.  You can’t ever stop at just one!  I always use the Bisquick recipe. But, Aunt Sandra taught me to add green chili’s in them, and that is a game changer!  The chili’s make them even better!  (Just use the recipe below and add in a small can of diced green chili’s.)

Dark Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

I found these next cookies on Pinterest.  They come from Amy’s Healthy Baking and they sound divine!  These sound like the perfect healthy sweet treat for a Christmas party or cookie exchange.  I can’t wait to try them!
