What are some of your favorite entertaining ideas and recipes this holiday season?

Posted by   + Show Post


Busy moms know entertaining during the holidays can be a difficult job but it doesn't have to be. We asked 25 CafeMoms to be mBlog Ambassadors and visit Macy's mBlog site for holiday entertaining tips, gift ideas, recipes and more!  Then we asked them to come back to CafeMom and share what they've learned. With Macy's mBlog, CafeMoms have an online destination for home and lifestyle news supplied by an impressive network of industry experts and Macy's own in-house bloggers!

This months theme is home happenings. What's are some of your home entertaining ideas this holiday season?  Do you find any inspirations from mBlog for your holiday happenings?

We love making gingerbread men and women!  Such a fun idea...and tasty too :)

Quoting Nicky2911:

Every year I make gingerbread men for the close, important people in my life. I use mnms for eyes and buttons. I try to give their gingerbread man the same color eyes as them and I write their names across the front. Then I put them each into one of those clear plastic snack bags that don't have a zipper and tie the end with some colored ribbon. A pair of scissors to curl the ribbon and it looks really classy. I just use the recipe off the molasses jar.

mBlog has tons of creative ideas that are very helpful. This site is something that I will continue to check for new ideas and recipes. I will be trying this recipe this fall, I love cranberries, and this one is close to the same cranberry recipe my Grandma used to make.

My girls love to help me cook. We have most of our baking done already. Just need to do some banana bread and maybe some fudge

My oldest loves to help with that kind of stuff too!

Quoting Bzmom_x_5:

I really try to get a lot of cooking done early in the week so I can actually spend time with my family! I also put the kids to work, measuring and mixing and they enjoy helping and taking some credit for dinner.

 Vanilla Wafers are my new party staple. They are pretty easy and taste so good.


1/2c unsalted butter, softened 1c sugar Cream together to that add 1 egg 2TBS vanilla extract Mix together 1 1/3c flour 3/4t baking powder 1/4t salt Add dry ingredients to wet mix Either drop teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheet or place a nickel
 sized ball between your palms and flatten slightly for a crispier cookie. Bake at 350 for 12-15 mins until golden brown.

I would l;ove one of these pans and racks for cooking a turkey. It would be nice. We don't host meals often, but it would be great for when we did
