Holidays should be fun. A celebration full of cheer and overflowing with good times and memories. Unfortunately the cooking, cleaning, traveling and visiting can take their toll on us.
But it doesn’t need to be that way.
This week Sunday Supper welcomes the holiday season with easy recipes and ideas to help take the stress out of entertaining. We got you covered with bravo beverages, exciting appetizers, magic main dishes and delightful desserts.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that it doesn’t take an expensive, labor intensive dish to spoil your guests. You just need to make it look like one!
These Shrimp Puffs prepare fast and easy with little clean up time too. Creamy and a bit sweet. Bite-sized appetizers to impress even the pickiest shrimp addict.
I used refrigerated biscuits, cooked shrimp and cream cheese for the base. a drizzle of honey balances out the garlic and seafood spices.
Press the dough into mini muffin pans, add filling and bake. Easy. Fast. Impressive!
