It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season… We go right from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas. Mix with that a hectic work schedule and busy family life and it’s a wonder that anyone can get a home cooked meal (or dessert) on the dinner table this time of year!
My goal here at Midwest Foodie is to take at least one of those important tasks off your plate (pun intended!). I focus on creating and sharing simple recipes that are approachable for even the most novice home cook. Your dinner doesn’t need to have exotic or expensive ingredients. Your desserts don’t need to be extravagant works of art that take hours to prepare. Focus on seasonal, local products that fit into your budget and just keep it simple!
Focus on the things that bring you joy this time of year and let go of the things that don’t. Something that brings me joy around the holidays? Dessert, dessert and more dessert. And then another helping of dessert!
Take some of pressure off this holiday season and let me help you find the perfect dessert for your family get together! Whether you’re hosting guests from out of town, or traveling to the in-laws, these easy holiday desserts are guaranteed to be simple, quick and delicious!
All your favorite seasonal flavors are showcased below including everything from a classic apple galette to white chocolate chai cookies to pumpkin cheesecake bars!
