My Five Favorites - Recipes for the Holidays

We're sharing our favorite Holiday Recipes this month for My Five Favorites.
 Can you guys believe Thanksgiving is in a little over three weeks?!
Just writing that makes me both excited and panicky. 
I LOVE entertaining during the holidays, and am sharing some of my easy, do ahead
 and tried and true recipes to keep it fun and stress free.  
Kris @ Driven by Decor is hard at work on her pretty One Room Challenge and will
 be back with us next month, but I'm anxious to see what these lovely ladies are sharing:

Lisa @ Shine Your Light
Jennifer @ Dimples & Tangles

We're happy to have darling Mary Ann @ classic~casual~home as our guest host this
month. I've followed her for years, and in addition to being a talented designer she's such
 a gracious hostess, and a pro when it comes to entertaining. Check out her
 Parties & Recipes category on her blog. I'm swooning over this bathroom she just
 completed for a client, it's the perfect representation of her timeless, chic style!

Onto my favorite recipes, click the link below the photo for recipes:

Cinnamon Crumble Apple Pie
I found this recipe in my November 2003 Bon Apetit magazine and haven't used another
apple pie recipe since. It's always a hit!
 (Don't be alarmed by the tall mound of apples, just pack and press the crumbles onto it. 
Be sure to put a baking sheet under your pie pan as it will ooze yummy-ness and make your oven a mess.) 
One year I made it for my neighbors as their Christmas gift,
and delivered it warm a few nights before Christmas in pretty pie plates.

Rustic Cheese & Fruit Tray

Not only is this cheese and fruit tray pretty enough to be the centerpiece, but there's
 truly something for everyone. It's perfect for a casual get together with a few friends, no
 one has to cook, just swing by the deli and you're set. It's fun to create a tray with everyone
 pitching in and this recipe has detailed suggestions for types of cheese, meat, fruit and nuts
 ~ making it really helpful for recommendations when friends ask what they can bring.  
And, details for arranging. :)

Do Ahead Molten Chocolate Cake
This is a favorite dessert to serve during the holidays when I'm entertaining.
It's SUPER easy, but looks and tastes like you went to a lot of trouble.
I love that you can make it the day before with five ingredients you have on hand
and then pop it in the oven for 20 minutes ~ and serve warm!

Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Copycat
Having friends and family over during the holidays doesn't have to be a ton of work, a simple
 dinner where I'm not stuck in the kitchen is at the top of my list. A delicous hearty soup I
 can make ahead is always a go to. Confession - I served this
 so many times last year my boys were over it! Haha!

Easy Garlic Parmesan Knots

Oh you guys, these little nuggets are the BEST! I like to use pre-made pizza dough
I pick up at a local Italian restaurant instead of refrigerated biscuits the recipe calls
 for. I put the garlic butter in a large dish, dip the warm rolls in it when they come
 out of the oven, and serve immediately slathered in butter. 
Warning: Have a few batches ready to go in the oven!
(These would be great with the soup above.)

I love cheese in any form. If you haven’t experienced the sheer pleasure of Burrata cheese, you’re in for a treat! Originating from Italy, Burrata is a luxurious cheese known for its velvety, creamy texture and rich, indulgent flavor.

What sets Burrata apart is its unique preparation – a delicate pouch of mozzarella enfolds a luscious center of stracciatella and cream. The result? A burst of decadence with every bite!

Whether paired with fresh tomatoes and basil for a classic Caprese salad or drizzled with balsamic glaze and served on crusty bread, Burrata adds a touch of elegance to any dish. Its versatility makes it a culinary delight, elevating both simple snacks and gourmet creations.

Next time you’re in the mood for a cheese experience like no other, treat yourself to the exquisite taste of Burrata. Your taste buds will thank you!

It is my favorite kind of cheese and I have a history of finding the best stores to buy this deliciousness. Lately, the best burrata I have found at Gourmet Food Store the best place to buy burrata cheese online . The last burrata I ordered was of the highest quality. The ordering process was easy and intuitive, and the delivery came on time and impeccably packaged. This store has been a real gastronomic discovery for me. My eyes are blown away by how many delicious delicacies I can buy here at a decent price.
