Tips For Christmas Cooking

 

     Christmas is one of the biggest holidays of the year, a holiday where food becomes extremely important in homes around the world. It can also be the time of year when many people stress over what to serve and how to prepare everything they want to serve! Following are some tips that can help you stay sane during the holiday season.

     Christmas wouldn’t be complete without all that homemade Christmas baking. Many people have traditional family baking goodies that they make every year. However, it can be overwhelming if you decide to do all of your baking in one day. Try to plan your baking time across more than one day. Choose recipes that aren’t too complicated or you’ll soon grow frustrated as you try to get them all done before the holidays. Get your kids involved if you can, but give them tasks they can perform that match their skill level. A great tip when it comes to holiday baking is get all of your shopping done at least a day or two before you plan to bake. This way you’ll have everything on hand before you start.

     Perhaps the most important meal during the holidays is Christmas Day dinner. There are so many options when it comes to Christmas dinner, whether you stick with the traditional turkey or branch out and try something new, such as cooking an ethnic dish from your heritage. If you’re cooking for a large crowd don’t feel shy about asking some of your guests to bring over some of the side dishes or dessert. If you try to do it all you’ll surely find yourself far too stressed out to enjoy the day. A great idea is to have some people prepare one of their own family traditions to share at the table.

     It seems like every day during the holidays is filled with cooking and food. All leading up to the finale of the season, New Year’s Eve. Consider keeping things simple this year so you can sit back and enjoy the ending to the year. If you’re having guests over you can still focus on festivity without making things complicated for yourself. Prepare easy appetizers such as homemade dip, chicken skewers, mini quiches, and bacon wrapped scallops. Another great food choice for New Year’s Eve is a fondue. Although a bit more complicated than appetizers, you can still keep it simple by serving a cheese fondue followed by a chocolate one. No matter what you decide to bake, cook, and serve this holiday season, make sure you take the time to sit back and enjoy what you’ve prepared!
