Quick Rotisserie Chicken Pot Pies
The appeal of these mini potpies is in their simplicity: They go from prep to oven to plate in about 30 minutes. Lay strips of piecrust in a lattice pattern atop each pie for a unique holiday party entrée, or simply cover the pies with rolled crust and poke a few holes in the top for a dressed-down weeknight meal. Either way, they’re sure to warm everyone up. Get the full recipe for this easy dinner here.
Irish Mashed Potatoes
What sets Irish mashed potatoes apart from the traditional variety? The decadent bacon, flavorful onions and cheddar cheese, of course! This creative take on classic mashed potatoes will fill up your guests and keep you warm and satisfied, even if it’s blustery and cold outside.
More Cooking Doesn’t Have to Equal More Cleanup
You’re cooking and baking more during the holidays, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend hours cleaning up the kitchen afterwards. Use Cascade Complete ActionPacs to remove stuck-on food from baking pans, sauce pots and more, and have a roll of Bounty paper towels on hand for wiping up batter, sauce and other spills and drips.
Classic and Creative Chocolate Chip Cookies
Give the already-delicious chocolate chip cookie an upgrade with our ideas for add-ins like peanut butter candy pieces, pretzels, walnuts and cocoa powder. Bake a batch to enjoy with your family or holiday guests, or plan a baking day and prepare several dozen for quick gifts – your mail carrier and dog walker will thank you!
