I don't know about family secrets, but I think you can find christmas ideas on kevinkringle.com. Does anyone have any ideas for good Christams platters?

Lightbulb Christmas Platters

We usually have a relish tray with carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, baby dill pickles, black olives, and green too. Cheese balls or logs w/ assorted crackers. Fudge & assorted cookies with sweet cream cheese spread. Milk, eggnog, or soft drinks.

Just saw an appetizer one that sounded good in a magazine


You put several different hunk cheeses on a platter with assorted crackers, large seedeless grapes and a canning jar with this:

Bourbon Infused Honey


1 cup honey
1 large bay leaf
1/4 cup bourbon
In a small saucepan heat honey and bay leaf over medium heat just till mixture bubbles around edges. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in bourbon. Set aside to cool, about 1 hour. Remove bay leaf. Transfer to canning jar and store overnight or up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Makes 1 cup.


I'll look through my holiday recipes and see if I have something else!

Okay here are a few more ideas I have listed from past parties!

olives, pickles, pickled onions, caulifower, jalapenos, etc.

Hungarian salami, pepper salami and french baguette with a variety of hot mustards

grilled flat bread, variety sausages with a mustard bowl in the middle of the platter

homemade candy platter

homemade cookie platter

Variety of quick breads sliced (banana nut, date-nut, etc.) with a bowl of whipped cream cheese and soft butter

Pumpkin dip surrounded by gingersnaps

fresh fruit plater with fruit dip in center

mini tacos, burritos with bowl of taco sauce- I like to put jalapenos and other little touches on this platter also

and of course a turkey, and ham platter with sliced cheeses and next to it a variety of buns and breads to make your own sandwiches and several mustards, mayonnaises and etc.

You can really make a platter with any kinds of foods, just use your imagination; it's lots of fun to come up with different ones

Enjoy!!

Mix together all the ingredients and serve with gingersnaps

Enjoy!

We do baby carrots, celery, green and black olives, pickled beets, pickled baby corn, pickled okra, we do a ham roll-up with cream cheese and a pickle in the middle. Oh, and little smokies in BBQ sauce, sausage and cheese on toothpicks.
