Easy Red & Green Holiday Roll Up Bites

In fact, your can get your kids to make them for you!

It's easy to feel overwhelmed during the holidays, especially when you've filled your calendars with social events and holiday get-togethers. You may even be hosting a few yourself! Now that I have three kids, my new motto has become "keep it simple" when it comes to everything, but especially hosting. Gone are the days of spending hours in the kitchen preparing gourmet finger foods and desserts (for now, anyways). But that doesn't mean that I sacrifice taste or flavour, and it doesn't mean that I'm serving store-bought, processed foods either. It means that I'm keeping it simple--simple ingredients, simple instructions, and still, a delicious spread of food. 

This easy recipe came to me in a moment of panic, when I completely forgot that I was supposed to bring an appetizer to my son's hockey Christmas party. We had all of the ingredients on hand, so it was a matter of throwing it together. It ended up being so flavourful and delicious, and was one of the first foods to disappear at the party!
