I can’t believe it’s Friday already again. Even scarier is the fact that Christmas is now only three short weeks away! This fall has gone by in a flash… It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already over and the Christmas season is now in full swing!
So, if you’re still scrambling to catch up and get prepared for the holidays like I am, you’re probably looking for some ideas! I know I am. This week’s Friday Favorites are some of the dishes and homemade gifts that have inspired me, and will most likely be showing up in my kitchen this Christmas!
- These Cherry, Almond, and White Chocolate Biscotti from Gimme Some Oven look festive and I think they will make wonderful gifts! These would add a nice touch to a coffee or tea themed basket. Pick out your favorite coffee or an assortment of teas, a pretty mug, and wrap a few biscotti in a cellophane bag for a quick and easy gift!
- If you’re going to be hosting a holiday party, consider making these Jalapeno Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms from Evil Shenanigans. Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers to serve, and you can’t go wrong with bacon and jalapeno!
- I plan on giving these Bambolini alla Nutella (Nutella Filled Doughnuts) from Bell’alimeno a try. They sound the like the perfect sweet pick-me-up after a busy day of shopping… Or perhaps a tasty treat while decorating the tree!
- Here’s another cute gift idea for you. These Mugs of Christmas Magic from Megan’s Cookin are absolutely brilliant! I especially love the marshmallow surprise after stirring with the spoon. Yum!
