Christmas Recipe Roundup

Picture of sugar cookies for our Christmas recipe roundup

Hey hey, it’s Christmas week! I can’t believe it’s already here. This month (this year) has flown by and I want it all to slow down. Isn’t that something parents say? Maybe this blog is my baby (weird realization).

I usually try to hold onto Christmas day like it will never end, and then treat the 26th like the saddest day ever. Part of my childish self still does that, but I’m getting better at savoring it for what it is and then letting it go. Besides, next week we have New Year’s to look forward to and a whole new year to live out! Look out 2015 – we’re comin’.

Onto the food, because you need to eat this week. You need to eat really, really well. This list isn’t as extensive as our 63 Simple Thanksgiving Recipe roundup, so refer back to that for even more recipe inspiration. But I’ve grabbed everything holiday-related for your enjoyment.

With that, let’s dig in! And know that we’re super thankful for you all and your support, and we hope your week is filled with lots of delicious eats and time with friends and family. Cheers!
