Holiday Treats to Share with Family & Friends

by cafeappliances-us

The holidays are for enjoying the small pleasures that come once a year, and there are none sweeter than homemade goodies. Sharing your love for friends and family with a gift box of holiday treats is a great tradition to start. Whether left on a front porch or sent through the mail, they will brighten the holidays for your loved ones.

A Smaller Holiday Celebration

The flavors of Thanksgiving are very important. A large roasted turkey, while traditional, doesn’t have to be the star of the table. For a smaller group consider alternative main courses. Cornish game hens are quick to cook, and each guest gets their own personal bird. Roasted beef tenderloin, roasted salmon or even a classic roast chicken are all good options for a special main course. 

Crafting Warm Winter Drinks

When the weather is frightful, and you crave something warm and delightful, you want more than your regular mug of coffee or cup of tea. Instead of driving to your favorite coffee shop, why not use your Café Specialty Drip Coffee Maker

The Perfect Way to Start Your Day

Starting your day with a warm meal and the best brewed coffee doesn’t have to require a trip to your local coffee shop. With a little preparation and the right countertop appliances, you can be eating warm, perfectly toasted breads or waffles alongside a gold-standard cup of your favorite brew in minutes.

Plan a Perfect Parisian Picnic

Traditional French picnic foods include cheeses (we love brie, chèvre, blue, and camembert), crusty bread, crackers, selection of fruits, vegetables, cornichons, some type of sauce for dipping, butter, and sandwich meats. You can also include a cold salad to round out the meal. Our Parisian-picnic-inspired sandwiches are super simple, yet amazingly delicious: ham and cheese or radishes and butter on a fresh baguette. You can dress each of them up with the addition of Dijon mustard, crudité, or even fruit.
