Can you believe it’s December? That means Christmas is nearly here and all the holiday activities are in full swing. I’m planning to share a few simple recipes with you today to hopefully relieve you of some time when it comes to dinner. I know for us December is packed full with activities. It’s often hard to find a free weekend all month long.

Thankfully, my husband and I decided to take this past weekend and enjoy a little time to ourselves. That was much needed in the midst of the hustle and bustle this month brings.

Now, let’s get to this tasty menu!


This Slow Cooker Maple Roast is a classic favorite in our home this time of year.


This King Ranch Chicken is so delicious and can easily be made gluten-free. It makes for a great comfort dish! Enjoy some Hot Chocolate Brownies for dessert too.


Make it a Mac & Cheese night with this 15 Minute Stovetop Mac & Cheese. We like to pair this with some of our favorite meat and veggies.


Make Thursday simple with this Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken.


Warm up today with a delicious bowl of Loaded Mashed Potato Soup. Pair it alongside these Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

Be sure to add a few holiday desserts to your menu too like this Gingerbread Cake and Pecan Rum Cake. If you need a great cookie recipe, these Old Fashioned Christmas Cookies are my favorite. I use Better Batter Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour in them every single year and they are fabulous!

Do you have a certain recipe you love to use for cookies? I have found that I can make any cookie recipe with Better Batter and it works just as it would with regular flour. That makes holiday cooking a breeze for me.

Happy Holidays!
