Christmas recipes

Recommended Posts

Hey girls...since we already have Thanksgiving recipes I figured why not start up a Christmas one as well....I also thought we could start it up early that way we could all get enough ideas to make something new this year.....so I'll start it off with a few of my favorites:


This is just an appetizer which is so yummy and super simple

Stuffed mushrooms

Ingredients: 1-2 containers of mushrooms

Cream Cheese



First you remove stems and clean then let dry

Mix cream cheese and crumbled bacon(i've use bacon bits before to make it quicker instead of frying bacon and works just as well)

Fill your mushroom tops

Broil for about 10min or until tops are lightly brown



Next of course you have to have something sweet

Mini-Cheesecakes Make: 12

Ingredients: 12 Vanilla wafers

2 8-oz. pakages of cream cheese softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs


First Cupcake tin with foil liners.

Place 1 vanilla wafer in each liner.

Mix cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs then mix well.

Pour over wafers filling 3/4 full.

Bake 25min at 325

Remove from pan when cool and chill

Top with your favorite topping(cherry pie filling, blueberry pie filling, nuts....your could also have mixed chocolate chips in with cream cheese mixture as well.


Anyway...these are just a few....I will add a few more later. Keep them coming girls I need some new ideas this year because i'm having everyone over and I have to cook.

This is my most requested appetizer at parties. People fight over the last one!


Bacon Wrapped Smokies (cocktail weenies)


This is for 32 snack size weenies:



2 pounds sliced bacon, cut into thirds

2 (14 ounce) packages beef cocktail wieners

1 cup brown sugar, or to taste





Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Wrap each cocktail wiener with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. TIP: I just put a piece of bacon on the cutting board, wrapped the smokie in it until there was a slight overlap, cut the bacon with scissors, & stabbed it with a toothpick. Much easier than cutting the bacon into thirds since the smokies are not always the same size.

Place on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle brown sugar generously over all.

Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the sugar is bubbly. To serve, place the wieners in a slow cooker and keep on the low setting.


They are so delicious and they will be a HUGE hit. I know my friends and family love em!

I have a drink that we always make for christmas. It's good to have on hand with all the friends visiting and everyone loves it.




Mix together (you're going to need something kinda large to put it in, such as a gallon size bucket):

26'er Vodka

1 frozen Lemonade

1 frozen orange juice

7 cups boiling water

1 cup strong tea

3/4 cups sugar


Freeze it. Then when guest come by scoop out a few spoonfuls (however much you like) into a glass and mix with ginger ale.


ENJOY your nice slushy drink!!

You guys that stuff has my tummy growling...and that slush sounds evil - I must make it :o)


My cousin gives these cookie bars out every Christmas and we devour them. Really easy and delicious!


P.S. My aunt doesn't eat coconut so her batch is made with diced dried apricots instead.




7 Layer Cookie Bars



4 ounces butter

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1 (6 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips

1 (6 oz.) pkg. butterscotch chips

1 small can shredded coconut (1 1/3 cups)

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

1 to 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans



Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in 9x13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over melted butter; spread crumbs with chocolate chips, then butterscotch chips. Sprinkle coconut over this, then drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over all.


Sprinkle with the chopped pecans. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes.

Cool and cut in 1 1/2-inch squares.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
