Millennial Mom Jenna Barnett’s Holiday Hosting Tips for Busy Moms:
Keurig K-Latte Single Serve Coffee & Latte Maker
Hosting during the holidays can be stressful, but with the Keurig K-Latte Single Serve Coffee & Latte maker, hosts can keep guests at ease with a coffee or latte using the same brewer. While most specialty coffeemakers can be complicated, time-consuming and messy, the Keurig K-Latte coffeehouse brewer is simple to use, allowing hosts and guests alike to prepare coffee or lattes in minutes. Find it exclusively at Walmart for $99.
Marinated goat cheese is all the rage in Australia but it’s hard to find in the US, until now. CHEVOO’s marinated and infused goat cheese is super easy to spread on anything to make a unique holiday party appetizer in no time. Skip the boring old cheese plate and treat guests to something new. Plus, the leftover infused olive oil can be used as an easy salad dressing or drizzle it on top of meat… the possibilities are endless!
When it comes to holiday hosting, Jenna’s number one tip is to start with a high-quality protein like Farmer John Fresh Pork because hosts don’t need to do too much to create a flavorful, crowd-pleasing dish. Simply put the Farmer John Pork Roast into the slow-cooker with vegetable broth and some seasoning, then set it and forget it! It’s that easy to make tender and juicy pulled pork for delicious and festive pork & chestnut cups. You can also use pre-made fillo shells or puff pastries to cut down on even more cooking time. Farmer John California Natural Fresh Pork is all-natural and so versatile, making it the perfect base for a weeknight dinner or holiday entertaining. Farmer John products are available at local grocery stores including Smart & Final and Stater Brothers Markets.
Premier Protein Shakes
The holidays are the most indulgent time of year so why not incorporate some healthier dishes into holiday party menus. Premier Protein shakes make it easy to keep families and guests healthy during the holiday season. They’re great on their own as an easy grab-and-go option before hitting the holiday sales or transform it into delicious, healthy hot chocolate for a lighter holiday party treat. Premier Protein’s shakes have 30g of protein, 160 calories and 1g of sugar. They taste so good it’s hard to believe they’re actually healthy.
Yves Veggie Cuisine new Appetizer Bites
For those looking incorporate more veggie-forward foods into their holiday party menu, check out the new Yves Veggie Cuisine Appetizer Bites. They are the perfect comfort food snack and it comes in two flavors: Kale & Quinoa Bites and Falafel Bites. Just pop them in the oven for 10 minutes for a crispy, tasty bite that’s also gluten-free, low in fat and a good source of fiber. Find them at Walmart.
