This year, to ensure your holidays are more focused on logging time at ugly sweater parties and not stressing over your to-do lists, try these simple, festive ways to live your best life this season, from cheap and easy decorating hacks to impossibly cozy clothes that make the season ten times brighter.
Christmas Tree? Ppppfffftttt
While a big, decked-out Christmas tree is truly a sight to behold, it’s also a ton of work to set up. Plus, getting one will probably mean that you’ll still be finding pine needles in your pajamas until summer break — not ideal! As an alternative, throw a bunch of decorations on whatever plant you already have in your room.
30 Seconds To Make Treats
Peppermint bark is not only easy to make, but it also looks super impressive. And, it’s way more exciting than cookies or brownies. Seriously, no matter how messy you are, it’s bound to look good. Melt semi-sweet chocolate, pour it onto a sheet of wax paper, and let it dry. Then, melt white chocolate and layer it on top before sprinkling some crushed candy canes all over. Once the chocolate sets, break it up into palm-sized shards and throw a few pieces of your homemade goodies into some small clear plastic bags.
Staying Cozy Is A Must
Adulting doesn’t have to mean putting on jeans! Cute, matchy-matchy loungewear and outerwear will make you look put together for seeing friends and fam while you’re home for the holidays and still feel as comfy as humanly possible. Because, seriously, when is that ever not the goal?
10 Last Minute Snacks That Will Totally Wow Your Guests
When the impromptu party starts at your place, it is always a nice surprise. What’s not nice is that you have nothing to serve your guests. No matter what the number of guests is, you will want to serve the complete package. Which is why we have a list of 10 last minute snacks to get you ready to be the perfect hostess.
Poblano Pineapple Salsa
Taste the rainbow, then dip your chips in it. This show-stopping salsa will keep your guests ready to party. The pineapple will keep them dancing all night long.
This shareable snack calls for spring veggies like asparagus, but you can mix and match to create what’s basically an adult pizza. Not that I’m saying a regular pizza is bad.
Baked Brie Bacon Jam & Crispy Crostinis
The combination of hot and melty cheese plus devine bacon jam and toasty bread sounds like heaven. Am I right?
Pigs In A Blanket
Has there ever been a more perfect crowd-pleaser? Prep these the day before your shindig, then throw ’em in the oven right before people arrive. Perfection.
Zucchini Chips With Creamy Basil Avocado Dip
Vegetables disguised as fried food are always welcome. Think of this food like green french fries. I mean, it does sound delicious.
Lobster Deviled Eggs
To make these luxe bites, slice 12 hard-boiled eggs in half and remove the egg yolks. Combine yolks with ½ cup of mayo, 2 tablespoons French’s Mustard, and ½ tablespoon Sriracha in a blender, and blend until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine 4 oz. cooked lobster meat and 3 tablespoons of spicy mayo. Fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture, and top with the lobster mixture. Garnish with chopped scallions.
Yogurt in guac is actually an excellent low-key idea. Just add 2 tablespoons Two Good Vanilla Greek Lowfat Yogurt to your usual recipe. Want it extra bold? Top it with everything bagel seasoning.
Butternut Squash Kale Mac & Cheese
Who says mac & cheese isn’t a snack type of food? Let your friends try this recipe of yours and see them go wild over a mere mac & cheese.
Easy Chicken Skewers With Jalapeno Cheddar Dip
This combo is a total dream: A creamy, cheesy dip makes the perfect topping for simple chicken skewers.
Two-Ingredient Cream Cheese Frosting
100 percent the easiest sweet dip situation you’ll ever make: Just combine one container Two Good Vanilla Greek Lowfat Yogurt with ½ cup of cream cheese. Serve with fruit, pretzels, or anything else you wanna shove straight into your face.
5 Delightful Cocktails To Accompany Your Easter Brunch
There are certain expectations on Easter brunch with family. Starting from the egg hunt, the great spread, and a bunch of chocolate bunnies. Starting from this year, complete the tradition with one of the cocktails down on the list. I’m sure, your brunch would never be the same again.
Combine 1 ¼ oz. Tanqueray London Dry Gin, ¾ oz. lemon juice, and ¾ oz. simple syrup in an ice-filled rocks glass. Drizzle ¼ Creme de Mure (a blackberry liqueur) around the inner rim, and garnish with a lemon wedge and blackberry, if you feel like it.
Lavender Honey Fizz
Add 1 ½ oz. The Botanist gin, ¾ oz. lemon juice, ¾ oz. white wine aperitif, ½ oz. honey, and 4 dashes of rosemary bitters to a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake, and strain over ice into a rocks glass. Top with 1 ½ oz. soda water, and garnish with 2 sprigs of lavender. There you have a pretty cocktail.
Bacardi Old Cuban
Shake 2 parts BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho rum, 4 mint leaves, 1 part sugar syrup, 1 ¼ part lime juice, and 2 dashes bitters in a cocktail mixer. Strain into a coupe glass and top with 2 ½ parts Prosecco. Garnish with a mint-leaf float. You will feel like you’re in Cuba as you sip the drink.
Combine 1 oz. fresh carrot juice and 4 oz. Rosé All Day sparkling wine in a Champagne flute. Garnish with a carrot. I’d say this is one of the healthiest cocktails I’ve ever know of.
Combine 1 ½ oz. Tito’s Handmade Vodka, 1 0z. lemon juice, and ¾ oz. simple syrup in a glass with ice. Top with club soda, and garnish with 2 lemon wheels and sprigs of rosemary and thyme. It is figuratively like a garden in your mouth.
5 Best Irish Whiskey For Your St. Patrick’s Day Party
Distilled Spirits Council called Irish whiskey as the fastest growing spirits of the 21st century. Irish whiskey is made in Ireland, and is pot-stiled. Meaning that distillers use a mix of malted and unmalted barley. So Irish whiskey can have everything from cinnamon to mango to pineapple flavors distilled into it. Which makes Irish whiskey perfect for cocktails. If you do want to make your own cocktail or simply enjoying Irish whiskey as it is, here is the list for you.
Jameson is a classic smooth Irish whiskey that is readily available in any bar. You can choose to drink it neat or with ice cubes as a way to start your partying night.
Dingle Tripled Distilled
The formula in this product features gentle citrus and caramel tasting notes. The bonus side, it is made by a cool distillery. Or artisanal, you might say. Instantly upping the cred you earn as a drinker.
Tullamore is one of those classis Irish whiskey out there. The fans love its smooth sweetness. Making it ideal for the first time whiskey drinkers. So, if you are not sure what kind of Irish whiskey you want, try Tullamore first.
Connemara 12-Year-Old Peated Single Malt
The product is praised for its smoky flavor and hints of vanilla. Many have described the product as gone down very smooth. Taste closely and you might feel like you’re sitting by a bonfire on the beach.
Kilbeggan has been around for more than 180 years. When poured, it gives off a beautiful gold color and tastes like sugary cereal. Perfect for someone who doesn’t like a hint of bitter note too much in their whiskey.
