Easy Christmas Recipes and Using Up Leftovers

The following is a guest post from Crystal of Crystal & Co.

Do you host Christmas at your house or do you travel to have dinner with family and friends?

If your menu is not complete or if you’re still looking for that perfect appetizer, side or dessert to make I have some easy recipes to share with you.

Christmas Appetizers

Easy Christmas Sides

  • Crockpot Green Bean Casserole– this is perfect if you are traveling and responsible for bringing a side dish and equally awesome if you’re doing all the cooking and need something you can prepare and forget about until time to serve plates.
  • Easy Corn Casserole– if you’ve been asked to bring a side to Christmas dinner, this corn casserole is a crowd pleaser!
  • Crockpot Garlic Mashed Potatoes– this is another excellent side that requires little work. Your holiday guests will love this!

      Susan- you will love the corn casserole. It is sweet with a hint of savory. You’ll want to eat the entire dish yourself. (Or at least I always want to eat it all myself.)

    I make that pina colada cake every Easter with green dyed coconut. It is so delicious and my neighbor looks forward to it every year.
