Holiday Twitter Party

Holiday parties and family get-togethers mean great company and sweet and savory snacks that help melt away any winter blues. Tasty food is one of my favorite parts of the season – and how I kick back and treat myself during the holiday hustle and bustle.

But, I also like to keep my part of creating in the kitchen on the simpler side. So I’m loving these STACY’S® Bake Shop Bakery Crisps which have me making fabulous treats in only a few easy steps.

Janice and I played around in the kitchen and crafted these simple, tasty recipes for you…

I love Stacey’s Pita chips. I just bought some kalamata hummus from local organic market. Hummus and those bakery crisps would go so well together.
