The chill is in the air. The decorations are dusted off and the gift shopping is well underway. The festivities are upon us.
It’s FINALLY time...IT'S THE HOLIDAYS!
Wow, do we not deserve it this year, or what?! We have been put through the ringer. We have been tested. We made it through this ridiculous test of life called 2020, and here we are.
It’s that time of year, where we forget all of the world around us and celebrate life and family. The gift of giving is the best gift of all.
Food is the way to the heart, so let’s give our family and friends the gift of flavor. Our lives will forever be defined by the food we eat, while surrounded by the ones we love. Whether you’re short on time or short on inspiration, we promise that you’ll end up impressing the fam with a few of our ideas.
