Garlic Sausage Pesto Appetizer Bites |

These garlic sausage pesto appetizer bites are the perfect dish to serve to your guests this holiday season! And I promise you won't be able to eat just one, and nor will your guests.

The star ingredient is the garlic Johnsonville Summer Sausage. The sausage is filled with the best cuts of meat and smoked over real hardwoods, and you can definitely taste it in it's smoky, rich, umami flavor. Plus I added a dab of pesto, some jack cheese, bell pepper, and scallions to each bite. And it's all held together in a little cup of phyllo dough.

Bow or Bow Tie Gender Reveal Baby Shower

Bow or Bow Tie Gender Reveal Baby Shower |

Planning a gender reveal baby shower and need ideas? Check out the dessert table I styled for a Bow or Bow Tie Gender Reveal Baby Shower for Oriental Trading! My post gives step-by-step instructions how I put the whole thing together, including all the themed candies I used, decorations, and DIYs.

I made pink and blue cupcakes with a candy surprise inside to reveal the baby's gender. I made two diaper cake centerpieces for my table that were a snap to put together. And I made a chalkboard welcome sign with clothespins for people to wear their boy/girl guess proudly at the party.

Paleo Coconut Macaroons

We are eating more of a paleo diet at our house, and I have to say, I'm really like it. I feel healthier and I definitely have more energy.

But now that it's the holiday season, I don't want to feel deprived because I love holiday treats!
