Candy Cane Punch

This was also on the menu for Christmas Eve. I had seen it on Pinterest and wanted to try it because it just looks so darn cute! Not only was it cute... it was delicious! I can imagine that this recipe will be hanging around our holiday parties for a while!

Jalapeno Popper Dip

I made this for Lucas's families Christmas Eve party, and it was a huge hit!! Everyone LOVED it! I have made it before for my family also, and the reaction was exactly the same. I am pretty sure you can't go wrong with one! It is a crowd pleaser for sure!

*I haven't gotten a picture of this yet, but I am making it again for New Years Eve so I will try to snap one before it gets eaten! No guarantees though! :)

Baked Potato Soup

We had this for dinner tonight and it was so delicious! Lucas said it is one of his favorite soups of all time. And the best part is that it was so easy to put together!

Baked Potato Soup

1 30oz. bag of frozen, shredded hash browns {I used Ore Ida}

3 14oz. cans of chicken broth

1 can of cream of chicken soup

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/4 tsp. ground pepper

1/2 pkg. cream cheese {don’t use fat free.  It WON’T melt!!!} 

Combine everything in pot and bring to a boil. Add cream cheese and let melt. We added some bacon to ours, and you could also do cheese, sour cream, green onions, or whatever suits your fancy! Enjoy!!
