Headed to a friend or family members’ for Thanksgiving? If you’re stumped or stressed about what to bring I’ve got some easy, travel-friendly ideas for you! These recipes are all simple to prepare, can be made ahead, are total crowd pleasers & will definitely be appreciated by the host.
Orange and Fennel Marinated Olives make a great hostess gift, to nosh at Thanksgiving or break out for guests throughout the holiday season. Bring in a pretty mason jar tied w a bow.
Asked to contribute a side dish but not up for major cooking? This 4-ingredient, 15 minute Orange-Ginger Cranberry Sauce pairs perfectly with the Big Bird and other holiday favorites (plus this one blows away the canned variety!)
A guaranteed crowd pleaser – my highly addictive Sweet & Spicy Glazed Nuts w Cranberries & Rosemary make a much appreciated hostess gift or cocktail nibble.
Trust me…bringing booze always makes for a happy host! Instead of the usual bottle or two of wine, why not blow them away with this killer Winter Spiced Sangria instead? Pack in a portable beverage cooler for easy transit.
Nobody can resist! Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakesmake an adorable & delicious finish to any holiday meal. Tote them along right in a disposable cupcake tin – no risk of crushed cake upon arrival!
Happy Holidays! xo Julie
