The holidays are a frenzy of social gatherings, but we have our regular lives to lead, too. Make it easy on yourself with four easy recipes from Food Network star Damaris Phillips that you can make ahead!

No. 1: Chocolate-Orange Cereal Mix

For a sweet spin on this yearly holiday favorite, toss your favorite cereal with a glaze made with chocolate, butter and almond butter, and then sprinkle with orange zest-infused powdered sugar, and mix in a brown paper bag. Delish!

No. 2: Spiced Snack Nuts

Damaris makes a giant batch of these sweet and spicy nuts to share with friends and family at the holidays.

No. 3: Holiday Cereal Mix

This is a more traditional take on cereal mix, but gets an Asian twist with toasted sesame oil and a kick with a splash of Bourbon!

No. 4: Herb and Sausage Quiche

This quiche can be made ahead and frozen, then defrosted and cooked when you’re ready to eat. Make a few and pop them in the freezer before your holiday guests arrive!
