Cook-Free Options for Holiday Entertaining

Paula Deen Orange Pound Cake

Well, almost cook free.  One of my favorite things to buy for holiday entertaining (or any entertaining), is party trays.  These can be trays of vegetables, fruit, etc.  For the holidays though, meats and cheese are always good!   For our small gathering, we opted for the small deli platter, TGI Friday's Buffalo Wings, Delimex Taquitos, and … [Read more...]

How to Make a Valentine’s Day Piñata Craft

Valentine's Day Pinata

Today I'm bringing you a really … [Read more...]
