During the holiday season, the dinner table is where the action happens. Family and friends gather around a table filled with foods of all kinds. The problem is, the host of the party usually ends up spending most of the time in the kitchen. The best way to spend the most time with family and friends is to make as many dishes ahead of time as possible. Start with make ahead holiday appetizers and work your way down the list so you can focus on spending time with family and friends instead of in the kitchen. If you plan properly, the majority of your holiday meal can be finished before guests even arrive.
Make ahead holiday appetizers are here to save you from the kitchen during the celebrations of the season.
