New Year’s Eve has always been a low-key holiday for me. I like to stay home and enjoy yummy snacks, champagne, and watch the ball drop. The best part about living in California is that you can see the ball drop in NYC at 9pm. It’s kind of cheating, but it’s great to get to go to bed early! (Yes, I’m an old lady!)
I made this amazing beer cheese fondue on Christmas Day and I might have to make it again tonight! It is SO good! I wanted to share the recipe with you just in case you were looking for something special to make tonight or tomorrow during the Rose Bowl.
Can you believe this picture was on Christmas Day? It was 65 degrees and sunny so we decided to have a picnic in the back yard, so fun! I served the fondue with a chilled white wine and a mixed green salad.

Where did November go? Thanksgiving has passed and we’re plowing full-force into the December holiday season. Orange and brown hues have disappeared from the shelves at my local stores and been replaced with an explosion of red’s and green’s. I love it!
Today’s post is a review of the super busy month of November. This month has really shown the diversity of the projects that my team at Kuzak’s Closet are tackling; great closet and garage organization projects, a full house relocation and un-pack, estate inventory, several estate sales and liquidations, DIY events, a book release and so much more!!
December is looking pretty packed but I am taking some time to visit family, which will be fantastic and I am looking forward to a break. We managed to squeeze two estate sales into December so be on the lookout for those updates and I am bringing back the Holiday Decor Week from last year that was so much fun. I love to see everyone’s different decorations and hear about the holiday traditions of my family and friends. Continue Reading »

I’ve been on The Plan (a low inflammatory diet) for the last 45+ days and I’m loving it. It starts with a 3 day cleanse which is followed by a regimented 20 day meal plan. I know it sounds terrible but it’s worth it in the end. Once the 20 days is up it’s up to you to take what you’ve learned and create a lifestyle from it.
I was a bit worried that it would cut into my tailgate treat obsession but I’ve learned to work new healthy recipes into my lifestyle. The changes that I’ve made to my diet have made a world of difference. I feel so much more energized, more positive, and as a bonus I’ve lost 10 pounds. It’s also helped with my endometriosis which is a lifesaver.
Enough about the diet, and on to the delicious dip trio that brought you to this blog post in the first place. I hosted a little football gathering a few weeks ago and I wanted to make appetizers that I could enjoy on my diet and that our friends would also love. It’s harder than you think to find healthy appetizers online, even I am guilty of posting too good to be true apps during Kuzak’s Closet Touchdown Week posts in the past!

I spent countless nights with my Alma College pals at the Braveheart Pub sipping on beers and snacking on fried pickles. Let’s be honest, back then I could get away with it because I spent all of my free time on the treadmill in the rec center. Now that I am 31, almost 32 (yikes) I just can’t keep up and no matter how much exercise I get during the day my metabolism just doesn’t want to cooperate.

I had puff pastry leftover from my turkey pot pies last week so I decided to try these easy puff pastry appetizers over New Year’s weekend. They were cute little guys and were yummy right out of the oven, perfect for a warm dip or a bowl of soup. I used snowman cookies cutters to put them into a festive shape for January but you could use any shape that you want.
