Desserts for a Big Family

I come from a big family and so does my husband. We are both 1 of 5 siblings. So when we have any kind of gathering, especially during the holidays, there are lots of people and that is lots of eating!

This year for the family Christmas party on my side of the family I am in charge of desserts. Desserts for a big family have to be easy and appeal to the masses. One thing you should know about me and cooking, when Sandra Lee coined the semi homemade brand, she was speaking my language.

I do love to bake and try new recipes as well. I thought it would be great to share here with you some delicious looking recipes I found. I can’t wait to try some of these. My aunt makes the best homemade pecan pies so I always request she bring those to our family party! AND since this is a decorating blog, she has the most gorgeous Victorian home that you can see HERE all decked out for Christmas.
