The pressure is on! Santa Claus is not only coming to town, but so are mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, multiple cousins, spouses and their children! While it’s no surprise that holiday cooking and entertaining can be stressful, a little planning can save a lot of time in the kitchen.

Gearing up for the holiday season, Ceci Carmichael will tell your viewers about the latest innovations in the frozen food aisle, tips to ease the stress of holiday entertaining, and share easy, time-saving recipes. Ceci will also discuss the myths surrounding frozen food – frozen food is real food-just frozen!.  Much of what you will find in the frozen food aisles today has been developed and prepared by expert chefs in test kitchens across the country – using real ingredients and rigorously evaluated by nutritionists and dietitians.

Some of Ceci’s tips include:

  • CHEAT A LITTLE: Supplement your holiday cooking with quality foods from the frozen food aisle…you don’t have to make everything from scratch…just add a few homemade touches.
  • STOCK THE FREEZER: Keep your freezer stocked over the holidays – ready for busy shopping nights and unexpected guests. Having your freezer well stocked ahead of time saves you those last minute frantic runs to the grocery store. The beauty of frozen foods is that they are always ready when you are!
  • GET INSPIRED FROM THE BIG CHILL: From breads, potatoes, stuffing and pasta to a wide variety of vegetables you will never be at a loss for what to make. Frozen veggies are also a great addition to hearty soups and stews that will feed a holiday crowd.
