The whole family is excited about the holiday season, and we've started some of our family traditions. One of our favorites is what we do all day on December 24th. Continuing a tradition from my husband's family, we cook all kinds of different appetizers and desserts all day and enjoy those instead of “regular” meals.

As the kids have gotten older, they're tasked with choosing and making their own, so they're hard at work flipping through magazines and poking around on Pinterest looking for something new (and easy to make) that we'll all enjoy.

Among the new recipes, we also make some family favorites, like pigs in a blanket (hubby's favorite), artichoke and spinach dip (mine) and this Creamy Olive & Roasted Red Pepper Party Dip. The bold and tangy flavors are one of our favorite combos.

This party dip is so easy to pull together! Let the cream cheese soften at room temperature so it's easy to stir, then roughly chop up some Mezzetta Kalamata Olives and Roasted Red Peppers. Add in extra seasoning with fresh parsley, garlic and lemon juice.

We always have a jar of Mezzetta red peppers in the pantry because they're key to our Crustless Italian Spinach Pie. It's almost impossible to keep a jar of olives in this house–let's just say they're very popular.

Mezzetta is one of my favorite brands because I can count on the excellent quality and taste, plus they're all-natural, non-GMO and certified gluten-free.

It's a simple recipe but packs a lot of amazing flavors. I like to dip vegetables, while the kids love using pita chips or crackers. It would also be a great spread for crostini.

This sounds like a delicious party dip. We like to have appetizer nights throughout the winter. It sounds a lot like your Christmas Eve.
