Let’s just get right to things…its’ party time!  For me this means hosting a few get togethers, attending some fun parties and being prepared for the unexpected.  So, with so much going on, I always have a few things in my fridge/freezer and pantry to make sure things run smoothly.

My party cheese ball is one of those go-to helpers that make my life easy.  This recipe is great for any holiday party and is perfect as a hostess gift when you add a box of artisan crackers.  Like I said friends, it’s party time and I want to make life as stress free as possible…
