{Google Hangout} Holiday Open House

Well, it is official, the other day, we had our last Google+ Hangout of the year! Hard to believe that a simple idea has transpired into a weekly video chat with Food Bloggers from all over the world. Christine from Cook the Story and I honestly couldn’t have done this without our fabulous (blog) friends! First and foremost, a big thank you to all of our supporters whether you were a guest on Christine & Katie this year or simply watched our live stream or our previously recorded videos.

We invited our past guest to join us and talk about Holiday beverages and recipes of all kinds! We decided to make this an open format for 30 minutes where guest could pop-on and pop-off if they chose too. Of course, as we predicted once everyone was on they stayed on. It was one big food blogger party!

Our honorary guest of the evening included:

Julie from The Little Kitchen
Sam from Sweet Remedy
Julius from
Maureen from Seafood Lady Orlando

Here are a few simple recipes I suggested to entertain with during the holidays:

Artichoke Dip

Artichoke Dip

This dip is easy to make and best of all you can make it from the comforts of your pantry/refrigerator! I always have all the items on hand to whip this dip up in a hurry if unexpected guest stop by!

Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

These are a tried and true classic… No one can resist these sumptuous bars! Best of all, your guest will never know that they are what I like to call a semi-homemade dessert!

Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles

Guest won’t know what to think after they take one bite of these truffles. Seriously, they are amazing and so easy to make! I now find myself making these once if not a few times a year.

Christine and I are looking for guest to hangout with next year. If you are interested, please email me!
