Three Easy Holiday Parties You Can Throw in Your Kitchen
Party in the kitchen!
Your family and friends don't need to be entertained. They just want to hang out and eat with you! Set out a few help-yourself items where everyone tends to gather — the kitchen — and the party will take care of itself. Here are three easy ways to get your holiday party on.
1. Cheese Board
Make your own fancy crackers, then raid your cheese drawer, fruit bin, and pantry to turn them into a spread. Add champagne or a bubbly cocktail, and let the grazing begin!
Cheese, Please!We used (clockwise from top right) Délice de Bourgogne triple crème, Prairie Breeze white cheddar, Shropshire Blue, young Gouda, aged Manchego, and Président Brie for a mix of textures, ages, and flavors.
2. Pasta Bar
3. Coffee & Cookies
Make one terrific sugar cookie (or up to six different cookies from the same basic Chewy Sugar Cookies dough). Set them out with cream, sugar, and a fresh pot of coffee, and let the merriment begin.
