I can not believe Christmas Eve is next Sunday! I hope everyone has all their shopping done and is ready for a relaxing holiday!! I'm sharing some easy recipes this week and our Christmas Eve Lasagna recipe. The lasagna can be made ahead of time and frozen for next weekend. I'm also firing up the slow cooker for some crazy good Pulled Pork Chili and Bacon Cheeseburger Potato Soup. I love cozy soup recipes this time of year!!

Garlic Parmesan Butter

This post is sponsored by Sister Schubert’s, but opinions expressed are my own.

Garlic Parmesan Butter

Garlic Parmesan Butter - only 6 ingredients. Butter, garlic, parsley, Italian seasoning, pepper and parmesan cheese. Perfect accompaniment to Sister Schubert's Dinner Yeast Rolls. Whip up a batch of butter while the rolls bake! Also makes a great homemade gift! #butter #garlic #garlicbutter #sisterschuberts

The holidays are all about family traditions. If your family is like mine, it just isn't Christmas without certain holiday traditions. Some traditions have stayed the same over the years - holiday baking (we've been making the same candy cane cookies since I was a little kid), watching Christmas movies, listening to John Denver's Rocky Mountain Christmas album (I still remember the exact spot the record would skip), my grandmother's cornbread dressing, and lasagna on Christmas Eve.

We have started a few new traditions in the past few years - we ditched my grandmother's giblet gravy for a packet of gravy mix and turkey drippings (don't knock it until you try it!), mimosa's while opening presents and Christmas breakfast at the Waffle House in our Christmas sweaters and Santa hats!

One holiday tradition that never changes is Sister Schubert's Dinner Yeast Rolls for our holiday meal. They are a MUST! Did you know that Sister Schubert's has been using the same recipe for five generations? If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Sister Schubert's Dinner Yeast Rolls are frozen to naturally preserve the homemade taste of real ingredients and finished off at home for that home baked experience to show that everyone can have real, homemade tasting rolls.

We LOVE Sister Schubert's rolls. Dinner isn't complete without a big ol' basket of warm rolls!! You can find the rolls in the freezer section at Walmart. The best part is that they are ready in about 5 minutes. Seriously can't beat that. We absolutely love them. They are great with our holiday meal and even better with the leftovers! My favorite is a turkey sandwich on a Sister Schubert's Roll - SO GOOD!!

Sister Schubert's Rolls are good straight out of the oven, but they are over the top delicious with this Garlic Parmesan Butter. We make this Garlic Parmesan Butter every year to go with our Christmas Eve Lasagna dinner. Butter loaded with garlic, parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. YUM! It only takes a minute to make. I usually whip up a batch while the rolls are baking. Lasagna, warm rolls and Garlic Parmesan Butter are our Christmas Eve tradition.

This Garlic Parmesan Butter also makes a great homemade holiday gift. The butter is super simple to make and everyone LOVES it! I like to put the butter in a pretty jar with a label and Christmas ribbon. The butter along with a pan of lasagna and a bag of Sister Schubert's Rolls makes a wonderful gift for teachers, friends and neighbors! It is a great way to share our holiday tradition with friends and family.

We have a saying in our house. "Everything is betta with feta!" Well, these Feta Squares are no exception. They are DELICIOUS!!!! Great for all your holiday entertaining. You can make the feta mixture ahead of time and refrigerate it until you are ready to bake the squares. LOVE make ahead recipes at the holidays!

I used a loaf of party rye bread. I buy it in the deli section at the grocery store. If you can't find the party rye bread, you can use a loaf of the party pumpernickel bread. Either will work fine in this recipe.

I love serving these Feta Squares at holiday parties and tailgates. You get about 45 Feta Squares with this recipe - perfect for a crowd! They are easy to make and they taste great hot out of the oven or warmed to room temperature.

This recipe uses Greek Seasoning - I always use Cavender's. It is with all the other spices in the grocery store. If you can't find it in the grocery store, Amazon carries it (get it here).

I took these Crunchy Peanut Butter Bars to a party and they were a HUGE hit! I didn't have any leftovers to take home. Dang it! LOL! The Crunchy Peanut Butter Bars are a little rich, so you can cut them into small bars and get a lot of bang for your buck with this recipe.

We are in love with this Easy Meat Lovers Manicotti. It is manicotti stuffed with ham, pepperoni and cheese and baked in a quick meat sauce. If you are like me, the hardest part of making manicotti is stuffing the cooked noodles. Well, this recipe makes stuffing the the noddles a breeze! I used string cheese! Brilliant! I just rolled up the ham, pepperoni and string cheese and slid it right inside the cooked manicotti noodle. Super simple!

For the meat sauce, I used Italian Sausage. You can swap it out for ground beef if you aren't an Italian Sausage fan. Either way, this will taste delicious! I used my favorite jarred sauce, Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Marinara, for the spaghetti sauce. I also love La Familia Delgrosso jarred sauce. Both sauces don't have chunks of tomatoes in them - that is very important to me!!

We absolutely loved this Easy Meat Lovers Manicotti. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later. We ate this for dinner and leftover for lunch the next day. I was just as good reheated. All you need is a salad and some garlic bread and you are set!

These just can't be beat!!! #cinnamonrolls #breakfast #orangerolls #sweetrolls

Stop what you are doing and make these Quick Orange Rolls NOW! OMG! These things are SO good!!! We devoured the whole pan in about 5 minutes flat. No joke! They are ridiculously good.

There are a couple of places in my area that are famous for their orange rolls. These Quick Orange Rolls are just as good, I would argue better, than those "famous" places. They are also a 1000% better than the canned orange rolls we usually make!

These Quick Orange Rolls are super simple to make. They were to bake before the oven had fully preheated. The key to the quick prep time is using a can of refrigerated french bread dough. No rising required! Make sure to use fresh oranges in this recipe. It really makes a difference in the taste with all the yummy fresh orange zest.

I love how easy these orange rolls are to make. We can have them anytime we want! We've been eating them for breakfast the past few weekends and they are on the menu for this weekend too! We just can't get enough of them! They would be great for Christmas morning too!!

Happy Sunday! It's that time of the week again. Time to start planning the week ahead. Our slow cooker will be working in overdrive this week. I've got some soups and easy pork dishes made in the slow cooker on the menu. I suggest using some slow cooker liners for easy clean-up! Have you ever used slow cooker liners? OMG! LOVE them!!! I always use them if I am using my slow cooker on back to back nights.

We are having some soups, easy make-ahead casseroles and some yummy slow cooker pork & turkey dishes. I've included some yummy sides and a great holiday dessert recipe. I love to make the dessert and give it away as a holiday gift.

This Sausage and Ranch Grits Casserole is perfect for Christmas morning! You can make this ahead of time and pop it in the oven when you are ready to eat breakfast.

I think Red Velvet Cake is a requirement for the holiday season. This Red Velvet Poke Cake is definitely required for any holiday celebration this season! OMG! This cake is out of this world delicious!

Poke Cakes are one of my favorite desserts because I can make them a few days ahead of time and they get better the longer they sit in the fridge. Letting it sit in the fridge overnight gives the cake time to soak up all that yummy chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. It is hard to wait overnight to eat the cake, but it really is better if you can muster up the will power to wait.

The star of this recipe might be the quick homemade Cream Cheese Frosting! OMG! It really puts this poke cake over the top!! This Red Velvet Poke Cake is going to be a staple at all of our holiday parties. It is great for potlucks or even a homemade gift. Bake the cake in a foil pan and pop a bow on top.

Baked brie is one of my favorite party appetizers. These Honey Bacon Walnut and Brie Bites are my absolute favorite way to eat brie! I mean, cheese, bacon, nuts and honey. YUM! The sweet and salty combination is hard to beat!!

This recipe was inspired by my trip to Amsterdam. We ate in a cute sandwich shop one day and this was one of the sandwiches that we ordered. I just couldn't get enough of the flavor combination! It is totally addicting.

You can assemble these Honey Bacon Walnut and Brie Bites and refrigerate them until you are ready to serve them. They taste great hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. They are great for tailgating this weekend and all your upcoming holiday parties! I have a batch in the refrigerator right now! Can't wait to bake them up tomorrow for watching all the games!

I bought a fully cooked spiral baked ham at the grocery store. 
I bought an 8-pound ham because that was the smallest one that they had.

The glaze is super simple. Only 3 ingredients - brown sugar, dijon mustard, and Coke. I brushed the glaze all over the ham and in-between the slices. Make sure to get the glaze in-between all those slices!! You want the every slice to have amazing flavor!!

I baked the ham covered for about an hour and then baked it an additional 30 minutes uncovered.
I basted the ham with the glaze every 10 minutes as it baked uncovered. The result was one of the BEST hams I've ever eaten. The leftovers were AMAZING too!! I will never buy a fancy store ham again! This ham is 1000% better!
