As the holiday season approaches, parties and get-togethers between family and friends are in full swing. Which also means you are going to have to break out your pots and pans in order to make delicious and festive holiday entrees that will impress your fellow party-goers.

“My favorite thing to eat during the holidays are the cookies,” said Lisa Sprague, the Dean’s Secretary at Lakes Community High School. “I can’t cook so I mostly make things that are really easy,” Sprague said.

While some people are experts in the kitchen, there are others who struggle in the cooking department, but that does not mean they cannot still make a dessert or appetizer that is holiday party appropriate!

“I like to buy the cookie dough from the grocery store that are already made and pretend I made them” said Helen Tsipopelas, staff member at Lakes Community High School.

To help ease the pressure of making an elaborate and complicated holiday treat that many of us cannot do, here are some fun, festive and easy holiday recipes perfect for any occasion.
