Delicious and oh-so-easy gifts are what we need this busy season. Just make sure you make enough to save a jar for yourself! So pull the kids in the kitchen to help and gather your ingredients. All you need are two 8oz blocks of (room temperature) cream cheese, 1/2 can of whole cranberry sauce, 1 Tbl of frozen OJ concentrate, 2 Tbl. powdered sugar. I love using my food processor but you could use a mixer also. Add all your ingredients and blend until smooth and ... Read More about Cranberry-Citrus Cream Cheese Hostess Gifts

It's 5:00 and the kids are asking "What's for dinner mom?". Ofcourse I have no clue. Well, I wanted REAL food for dinner but it had to be fast, the natives were getting restless.
