I love using potpourri at Christmas time. Christmas Potpourri has become a holiday staple for me, making my home smell so good! I used to buy potpourris from the store, and then I discovered that you could make your own! I make several batches during the holiday season.
Yes, it’s that time of year again. Time for eggnog. You know, the creamy holiday drink that is the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter night? Why not forego that store-bought version and try homemade eggnog?
Eggnog is a drink that has been around for centuries. It was first made in England, where it was called “egg-flip.” The English settlers brought it to America, where they changed the name from egg-flip to eggnog.
There are many different ways to make this delicious beverage. The recipe below is a classic, traditional recipe for eggnog. It calls for cream and milk to make the drink extra creamy and smooth. You can also add alcohol to give it an extra kick.
Eggnog is great served hot or cold, depending on your tastes. It can be served as a dessert drink at parties or enjoyed by itself as an after-dinner drink.
For those of you who’d like to give homemade eggnog a try, this recipe is a terrific place to start. It’s very easy to prepare, and in addition to the steps illustrated here, you probably have many of its ingredients on hand. Then all that’s necessary is to pour and enjoy!

Hey, Y’all! I’m sharing my first gift guide of the holiday season, and you can guess it’s for the hardest person(s) on your list. YOUR PARENTS.
What do you get for the people who have everything? It’s a question as old as time and one that plagues us each holiday season.
Below, you’ll find my picks for the best gifts for parents and in-laws of all ages. Whether you’re shopping for your mom and dad or in-laws, these gifts will make their holidays a little brighter. I’ve got something for everyone here, including options that range from practical to fun — so you can be sure they’ll love what they get.
Keep in mind that the most important thing is to spend time with your parents and your in-laws over the holidays. You don’t have to splash a lot of cash on them, just be there and cherish the time you have together. At the same time, don’t feel like you have to avoid buying them a gift for fear of overspending or being inappropriate in some way. If you go the extra mile and get them something nice but not overly extravagant, chances are they’ll say “thank you” and mean it. And isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
If you have any other creative ideas, I’d love to hear them! Be Well-Omniley
What could be better than Honey Baked Ham? Well, some say there is no substitute for HoneyBaked ham, but this pineapple brown sugar ham recipe will leave you more than satisfied.
If you want to prepare an amazing and unforgettable holiday dish that is fast, easy, and sooooo delicious, this pineapple brown sugar ham is definitely a recipe you need. I am sure you will love it!
This pineapple brown sugar ham will be gone before you know it!
I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and I usually cook it at least once a year, for either Thanksgiving or Christmas.
WHAT’S THE TRICK TO THIS HONEY-BAKED HAM DUPE???
What’s the trick, or what makes this recipe different? A brown paper bag! It’s true! The bag not only helps with flavoring it also pulls the extra sodium out of the ham, so you don’t have a “salty pig.”
Where do you get a brown bag? Most of your grocery stores always ask “paper or plastic” right? just ask the cashier for an extra unused bag!
The brown sugar and pineapple juices caramelize on the outside of the ham, creating a delicious crispy crust. This is one of those super easy recipes that are so good you’ll want to make it again and again. The ham will be tender and juicy, and it has a delicious brown sugar crust on the outside. You can serve this with pineapple rings or slices, but I like to serve it with some pineapple sauce for extra flavor.
This is a great recipe to make if you’re hosting a large crowd at your home, especially for the holidays. It’s easy to make and has very few ingredients. I would recommend using a spiral-cut ham, but you can use any kind of ham that you like.
Ahh, the classic holiday ham. A delicious addition to your family’s Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.
