The Holidays are upon us and sometimes it’s nice to keep family festivities Merry and Bright with a bit of help from the liquor cabinet.  Holiday parties also provide the perfect reason to break out the red lippy and create signature cocktails and large batch drinks.  For this month’s curated FOODIE collection, we rounded up a great selection of Christmas cocktails and Holiday drinks.  From a classic hot toddy and spiked eggnog to tequila mint hot chocolate and peppermint white Russians – our collection has a special beverage for every family member.  Enjoy the Holidays and please be responsible friends!

We’re excited to host Thanksgiving this year! My husband is deep frying a Turkey for the first time ever, and we can’t wait to spend time with family and some of our close neighbors.  We have a lot to prepare for in the days ahead.  I’ll soon be off to LA on a quick work trip and have been scourging the Internet for tasty dishes to add to our menu.  Since side dishes are an integral part of Thanksgiving enjoyment, this month’s curated collection for foodie.com focuses on comforting sides to complement the Turkey.  From Southern mac & cheese to sweet potatoes with burbon and maple – there is something in this collection for every palate.

Wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving friends!

Check out 15 Back To School Recipes

by Monica Marino at Foodie.com

As we enter our last full month of summer, it seems only fitting to focus this month’s recipe collection for Foodie.com on Back to School Recipes.  I think it’s important to involve the kids in the process and surprise them with fun things in their lunch boxes.  I’m always better off when I start preparations the night before and find it helpful to have a few tasty options in my freezer for quick dinners.  My collection includes lunch box ideas and a few crock-pot meals for the busyness that comes with after school actives.  Packed with a homemade lunch box love note – we’re good to go! Wishing all of your little ones a lovely start to a new school year and a beautiful final month of summer.

The sprinklers officially turned on in New York City’s parks this past weekend and we’re definitely dreaming of the carefree days of summer over here.  There is something glorious about spending ample time outside!  Since frozen treats are such a fun summer indulgence, I focused this month’s FOODIE collection on Fruity Frozen Desserts.
