We, like many others, have a blended family, and it's tough to get everyone together to celebrate the holidays. We do our best to spend time with everyone, but that often requires several get-togethers. I don't know about your families, but food usually seems to be the centerpiece of our gatherings. Opening the presents may be the highlight for the little ones, but it seems the party always winds up in the kitchen for good food and conversation.
Check in frequently over the next couple of weeks for recipe ideas for your Christmas gatherings/parties.
