The holiday season has begun and so has the holiday cooking. :) People everywhere will be cooking like mad to prepare for their holiday gatherings and feasts. And on top of that, they'll be simultaneously trying to juggle a zillion other holiday-related tasks. I often wonder, with all of those to-do's on our holiday checklists, how do we manage to get it all done every year?! But then, when the holidays roll around, quite amazingly, we somehow manage to pull it off. I don't know about you, but sometimes preparing for the holidays feels like this: Alright everybody, on your mark, get set, go! :-D

Amidst the holiday bustle -- from gift shopping and sending out holiday cards to decorating, baking, and cooking -- it can sometimes feel like there's an insurmountable, endless list of things to do and not enough time to do it all. That's where I come in. Never fear, Cyberpenguin is here. :)

For starters, always remember this: if you ever feel like you've taken on a bit too much, you have a few options to keep from losing your mind: do less, simplify, or delegate tasks to others. :) (There might be a fourth or fifth option as well, but hopefully it won't involve beating someone over the head with a spatula. Lol.)

So, in the spirit of preserving your sanity, over the next few days, I'll be providing some useful, sanity-saving tips to help you get thru the holidays. For example, I'll show you how to simplify holiday food prep. I'll also be providing you with some super-quick and easy, holiday-appropriate recipes. So, that way, you can spend less time in the kitchen and redirect your attention elsewhere, like checking off some of those other holiday to-do's on your list. :)

I'll also be posting some holiday menu ideas to give you some healthier options for the holidays. Maybe that way, you won't feel like you'll have to permanently chain yourself to a treadmill for the next two weeks to work it off. ;) Don't get me wrong; holiday food is meant to be enjoyed, but that doesn't necessarily mean that enjoyment must solely be equated with eating unhealthy things. ;)

And so, on that note, I wish all of you a happy, healthy holiday season!
