Baked Reuben Dip

Unfortunately, this year Jesse and I are not able to fly home to Ohio for the holidays. It felt a little strange to not have ANY Christmas parties to attend this year, so we had to do something about that. In order to keep the Christmas spirit alive we decided to host our own party. When planning the party I thought there were 2 directions I could go in – fancy shmancy dinner party or classic family style, with lots of old stand-by favorite appetizers. Then I realized there was no real competition, classic family style won!

The party was on Saturday and we had a really great time. Just a few close friends gathered around a table full of my favorite appetizers, desserts, and of course a batch of egg nog. This dip was one of the big hits at the party. There’s something about this combination of ingredients that even non-sauerkraut fans can love. In fact, one of my guests had to change her seat because she was afraid she would eat all of the dip herself if she sat in front of it!




Crockpot Pork and Sauerkraut

Sometimes I make and post things with a pretty good feeling that it will be well received (case in point –  Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread). Other times I make and post things that I love, but I pretty much know going into it that it’s not going to blow-up Pinterest. This is one of those things. I LOVE Pork and Sauerkraut with . It’s major comfort food for me. But it’s sauerkraut, so you either love it or hate it.

If you do love sauerkraut, this meal should be right up your alley. Warm and filling with the perfect tang from the sauerkraut. Bonus points for a short ingredient list and easy crockpot recipe. If you don’t love sauerkraut, just check back later this week when I will be sharing another pumpkin recipe that I think you’ll like. 🙂
