Expert Tips

Finding it hard to squeeze in time to make both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners? Consider an appetizer alternative instead of the traditional sit-down holiday dinner. When planning your event, decide not only on the but also on what each appetizer will be served in. Set out dishes and serving utensils the night before. If you have a lot of appetizers or are having someone help you, label each bowl with the item that should be served in it. Remove the label before placing food in the dish.
