Christmas Eve Appetizer and Dessert Party

What are your plans for Christmas Eve and Christmas day?  We are starting a new tradition this year that includes our entire family.  We draw names on Thanksgiving for an ornament exchange that takes place on Christmas Eve during our appetizer and dessert party.  Our girls have always opened one gift each, which just happens to be pajamas.  They always look so cute Christmas morning tearing into their presents all dressed up in new pj's.

We are keeping the menu simple so I can enjoy time with my family:

Jalapeno Poppers In A Blanket

Spinach Dip and Tortilla Chips - Mom's Recipe

Shrimp Salad Phyllo Cups - Paula Deen Recipe "kicked up" by ME

Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls - Hubby's Idea and recipe creation

Iced Sugar Cookies - Adapted From Created by Diane (Link to her blog is not allowed)

Red Velvet Cake Truffles

I will add the remaining recipes after Christmas.  Have a wonderful Holiday weekend with your family!  Merry Christmas!  See you back here next week. 


  1. Merry Christmas Rhondi!!! All the best to you and your family!

  2. I love Christmas! Every year we celebrate it in one of the finest venues in Chicago with all the kid’s and relatives. This time we are thinking of keeping it grand and also invite our neighbors and friends over. I really liked this blog. The kids are lovely!


I love that you stopped by and are taking the time to leave a comment! I really enjoy reading them all. Thanks so much!
