Sides, Drinks and Leftovers Perfect For Sharing With Friends

    Friendsgiving is the perfect opportunity to celebrate your second family with festive, fun recipes that stray a bit away from traditional fare.

    “Friendsgiving is often held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving,” said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. “It’s more of a potluck party than a traditional Thanksgiving – everyone is usually assigned a dish. Instead of stuffing or a green bean casserole, bring a dish that’s a little more fun, like corn pudding with a dash of smoky heat from chipotle chili pepper.”

    These recipes for a caramelized Brie and a chocolatey red wine from the McCormick kitchens are also sure to please. If your party falls after the big day, put those turkey leftovers to good use with a cheesy turkey crescent ring perfect for feeding a group of friends.

    Holiday Gift Guide 2017, Reviews

    Loop & Tie Makes Gift Giving Easy!

    A gift card was provided for review purposes.

    This is my favorite time of year. I love spending time with family and shopping for gifts. My husband on the other hand does not like shopping very much. Unless it is fishing or car related. He has a tendency to wait until the last minute. I am talking about the day before or even the day of.  I was very happy to tell him about a service called Loop & Tie that makes gift giving easier.

    Loop & Tie allows gift givers to take the guess work out of gift giving while staying on budget. It is as easy as choosing a collection to send and personalizing an online card with pictures, video and message. The recipient gets to select anything they’d like, without ever even seeing prices.
