Check out this fun party where the children decorate gingerbread houses, a red and gold rustic outdoor Christmas party in a California park, a cute Christmas dessert table party for kids, and a colorful and fun cookie decorating party for the holidays!

Pepper Parmesan Crisps Recipe

As the holidays approach, Strongbow hard cider asked us to come up with a second party food pairing (our first pairing was our quick and easy aioli recipe).

We chose to pair our pepper parmesan crisps recipe with the hard cider because we love the combination of apples and cheese. The cider brings a tangy, tart, appley-flavor, and the cheese brings a salty, unctuous richness that stands up well to the sharpness in the cider. Both play off each other effortlessly.

California Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

We were asked by DeKuyper to come up with a signature cocktail that would be fun to serve during the holidays. Most people think of eggnog or peppermint as their Christmas flavors of choice, but when I think winter... I think citrus!

I love the sweet and tangy flavors citrus brings to a drink, and since I am a California girl (by way of New Jersey), I wanted to create a California cosmopolitan cocktail recipe that highlights the relaxed, casual, West Coast lifestyle and would brighten up any holiday party.
