Are you busy decking the halls and trimming the tree?
I am currently dog sitting my mother-in-law’s two puppies while she’s in the hospital, so I’m knee-deep in white dogs as well as Christmas decorations. :) Thank you for all your prayers and get well wishes for her, please keep them coming. We’re hoping she’ll be released to rehab this week and home shortly thereafter.
Here is some inspiration from the archives, click on the links to revisit the posts.

One of Southern Living Magazine’s best recipes of 2011. Quick and make-ahead, 8 to 24 hours in advance, it can also double as a side dish. It’s good anytime of year, but perfect for the busy holiday season!

A great little appetizer to serve for the holidays! The crab mixture can be made a day in advance, then the bite-size cakes are baked in a mini muffin tin with a crust of Parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs!
