How Long Can I Keep Holiday Leftovers?

Holiday Leftovers Storage Times

Holiday leftovers provide a welcome break from cooking, but how long do you have to eat everything? Print a copy of my holiday leftovers chart, and use it as your guide. Then, add it to your recipe book, so you can refer to it again, the next time a holiday takes over your fridge.

Baking Times:

If the substituted pan is the same depth as the one called for in the recipe, you shouldn’t have to adjust the baking time. However, if the substituted pan depth is shallower, (a 1″ pan, instead of a 2″), you’ll need to shorten the baking time. If the substituted pan depth is deeper (a 2″ pan, instead of a 1″, you’ll need to increase the baking time.

It’s also worth noting that foods cooked in a glass pan may take 5-10 minutes longer than those cooked in a metal pan.

Strawberry Box Easter Baskets

Strawberry Box Easter Baskets

I love to wrap presents in strawberry boxes, so I always have a big stack of them in my gift closet. Recently, I decided to turn some of them into Easter baskets. I pulled out my stash of ribbons and trim, and this is the result. Pretty cute, eh? I used green bamboo for the handles (a curb pile rescue), but you could easily use sticks, chenille stems or wired ribbon for the handles instead.
