    Pull-Apart Buttermilk Biscuit Christmas Wreath will bring the family together in the kitchen this holiday season. This post has been sponsored by General Mills. All thoughts and opinions are my own.   Spending time with my extended family has brought so many wonderful memories around the holiday season. I remember when my children were younger and visiting my brother’s home. It was something that my family patiently waited for all year especially since it was a family gathering that took place on Christmas Eve. Gathering around the kitchen after viewing the town’s annual Christmas parade, was something that my children loved doing. It became a special night for my whole family as we sat and watched our children taking turns opened up a few presents around the Christmas tree. That glow and bright smiles coming from their faces as they unwrapped presents from their aunts and uncles, made me feel excited for them.…

        You guys,  I went out to dinner with my family the other night and I decided to try guacamole for the first time. I know, I know, I’m so late in the game but for heaven sake, why didn’t someone tell me that I’ve been missing out. I will admit, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to try it but always turned it down because of the looks of it. Yup, I am one of those. “If it doesn’t look right, it’s not for me”. Don’t laugh, I would be in a restaurant and notice another patron enjoying it and would think to myself, “Why would anyone eat that green “mush”.  “Omg”, it’s so gross! That’s the honest truth. I couldn’t stand looking at it nevermind eating it. hahaha So you see, it wasn’t appealing for me to try until just recently. Of course when I did try it…

The Big Game is almost here.  Did your favorite team make it through the playoff’s? Unfortunately, ours did not but that doesn’t stop us for celebrating and wanting to still enjoy what’s left to the season. For us, It’s all about having a good time, watching a competitive game with great friends and of course, delicious foods. As for my crowd, we love simple foods. So bring on the snacks and easy to make appetizers I’d say. Even our friends will agree, when the game is on, we rather watch the game then in the kitchen making a huge meal or better yet a mess. So simple recipes always work out great. -And you better believe with my rowdy crowd, there is a lot…
