Dear Sweet Daughters,
One of my dearest friends and colleagues in the English department at Sharyland High School (Elizabeth
Young) said the smartest thing about hosting holiday parties and what to serve.
“I know where to find things.”
That’s it sweet girls. That’s the secret. All you need to know is where to find things.
Here are some of my tried and true favorites:
* Find the best chocolate cake at a bakery you can find. The one pictured above is from Esperanza Bakery in Alamo.
Chocolate cake is always a crowd pleaser. Have it baked in tiers (see above) and use my square cake
pedestal from Casa Guero in Laredo. Add fresh strawberries and you are done.
Make your own chile con queso.
You are done.
*Order Empanaditas de Pina from La Estacion Bakery in Mission and/or Pan de Polvo with pecans from
Celebrity Bakery in McAllen.
And you are done.
I love you!
I will be bringing every single one of these items to El Paso for Christmas.
I can’t wait.
