31 Days…

31 days of make ahead holiday recipes

October's almost here and it’s time for the Nester’s 31 day series.  I love following along with some of the bloggers and their 31 topics every fall and this year, I’m going to try being one of them. 

I've thought a lot about what I want to write about for 31 days in a row.  To be honest I don't feel like an expert in any topic, but I've decided to share 31 recipes that can be made ahead before the busy holiday season.

This year I want to try and simplify the holiday baking/cooking.  So I’ll be preparing many of our favorite holiday recipes ahead of time.  Some of the recipes came be made weeks or months in advance and kept in the freezer until needed.  Others are made a few days in advance.  Both methods will help simplify the busy holiday season.

I’ll be posting a recipe each day and posting the link here.  Will you join me in simplifying our holidays and making a few dishes ahead of time this year?

Just want you to know that I am loving this series. I think I've pinned each of these. So looking forward to trying all of these out.

I love this time of year because Mom's are expected to cook yummy food for months on end. AND no one complains if we eat it too!
