    So many tasty offerings for a merry December Jenna! I’ve made Southern Living’s version of the cheese ring and strawberry preserves and it’s a winner. Happy Thursday ♥

  2. So many wonderful treats…they are great as a snack and an appetizer!

    Jenna, your red and green recipes are all hits. All of these would certainly be enjoyed by my family. The pimento wreath spread looks as pretty as it must be delicious, I want to try that for my Christmas Eve spread. A great collection of recipes….

  4. BERNADETTE says:

    Jenna, thank you for a very clever post filled with tons of ideas.

  5. Debra CANTALES says:

    Those BLT party skewers are calling my name! You are my go to blog for festive recipes.

  6. All these recipes are winners! You know how I know? Because you have a house full of guys, and if they approve, I KNOW they’re good!

  7. These are all amazing! You make everything look so delicious, even a little piece of stuffed lettuce! Let the parties begin!

  8. Jenna, I love this round-up. The lead photo of the pimiento cheese ring looks fabulous. I love pimiento cheese, a classic anytime. I often serve cheesy grits for dinner, I need to make your recipe! Have a wonderful day!

  9. Believe it or not, it’s the brussels sprouts that caught my eye-they sound great:@)

    “Red or green?” caught my eye because in New Mexico, you are always asked that question to determine what kind of chile (sort of like salsa, but not cold, more of a sauce and not to be confused with Texas style chili) you want on your enchiladas, etc. If you respond “Christmas,” it means you want some of both! Your grits recipe sounds wonderful. I have to agree that instant grits gives “real” grits a bad name.

  11. Wonderful food and pretty presentation Jenna. My son in law always tell me, I want to live here. I say the same thing to you for all of your wonderful recipes.
