Christmas Dinner Recipes!

Hello Everyone,

The holiday season is surely kicking in full gear, needless to say that I am extremely excited to be cooking and entertaining my loved ones during the happiest time of the year.

I already threw a small potluck-style dinner party yesterday for some College friends. Since it’s so hot in Thailand this winter, I decided to make my own winter sanctuary with a cozy winter party in the theme of silver, white, and blue. Here are some pictures:
