10 Unusual Tips for Sress-Free Holiday Cooking and Entertaining

As I mentioned last week, we've been hosting tons of holiday gatherings this year due to the fact that we finally have family living near us this year! I've shopped, planned, prepped, tested, decorated and cooked round the clock this holiday season, and even though I thought I knew all there was to know about saving time and energy when entertaining, every year I learn something new.

I've given you tons of entertaining advice in the past, and we've covered the basics including very helpful tips such as setting the table the night before, making your shopping list a week ahead of time in case you're in the neighborhood of some of your specialty stores. Planning out your menu so you don't need 6 stove burners when you only have four, and making sure you enlist some help. These are all part of having a stress-free holiday gathering, but today I thought I'd talk to you about some of the more unusual tips that might just make a world of difference. Sometimes it's those teeny tiny tasks that either make or break you, and if you need a seven hour nap after a seven hour cooking marathon, something's gotta give! It's time to change things up so that you can enjoy your holiday gatherings as a host just as much as your guests do.

FROM OUR KITCHEN TABLE CHRISTMAS EDITION: A GLIMPSE INTO OUR LITTLE CHRISTMAS FEAST!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had the most amazing time with family and friends and that you're gearing up for the new year! I hope you also read (and watched) the little Holiday message we left for you here! It's Monday, and as is tradition, it's time for our From Our Kitchen Table series, where we get to show you what we actually eat for our yummy meals so you can feel inspired and steal some ideas. Today however, I thought we'd make it even more festive by taking you inside our little Christmas dinner! 

I had so much fun cooking for our friends on Christmas Day, none of them are vegan might I add, but everyone loved the food! As it usually happens, we ended up talking until 3 in the morning about food, health and feeding your body with delicious health supporting plant-based yummies. It was such a special dinner party! Our friends Any and David who you always hear me mention were there as always, and we had three new friends join in the celebration this year. They loved it so much we're making it a yearly tradition. Our families live pretty far from us, so it's always so nice to share the day with some of our closest friends.

Homemade pizza, tofu for fish lovers and vegan burgers! + Brownble gets a Holiday makeover!

Our favorite time of year is here! Let me start by saying that I'm obsessed with Christmas. In fact, as I write this I'm listening to a rock and roll Christmas playlist. Pearl Jam's "Let me sleep (it's Christmas time)" is on... priceless. It's the season of traditions for me, and you know how I feel about traditions. Soon I'll be writing a bit about this, but today we're here because of yummy vegan grub so we're going to get straight to it. Some AMAZING holiday videos are coming tomorrow to both our youtube channel and our online program (members you're getting 3! Yup!), and I can't wait for you to see the little holiday makeover we have in store for you! We've been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and some changes are coming to the website too, including some personal stories in our About page, stuff I've never shared before but I'm always more daring and more humbled at Christmas so I'm getting up the nerve to write it! We're also creating an easy access page to our recipes, and the best thing yet, you can now check out what's new, and our latest blog posts, right from our home page!
