It doesn't get much easier than this sweet and savory cheese log. All you do is add fig jam to the top of your log and roll it into 1/2 cup of peipitas (pumpkin seeds). Add crackers or crostini for serving and you're good to eat!

Sure, store-bought hummus will get you through any holiday party. But why not take an extra second to really wow your guests this season? Mix in couple tablespoons of canned pumpkin, which will give you that great holiday flavor. To add a little more flare, add in some pomegranate on top.

Since much of the attention gets paid to the main course, it's always nice to have your appetizers be assembly-only. Which is why we're head-over-heels in love with Katie Lee's 'Pigs in a Wreath.' Not only is it delicious, it's also way more fun to make than the pigs in the blanket you typically see at the store.

Looking for the perfect gift to give this holiday season? Look no further than these no-bake peanut butter sandwich cookies, which last about two weeks in an air-tight container. Of course, they're just as fun to eat, so we totally supprot gifting them to yourself, instead.

Is this the greatest holiday fake-out ever? Take a tub of vanilla ice cream, let it melt, put it in a bowl and add bourbon. From there, add some nutmeg (you can also add flavors like cinnamon), put it into a pitcher, pour it into a glass and add a cinnamon stick. It's really that simple (and delicious!).
