    The following is a post from our sponsor, SavingStar.

    I’m a party girl. Always have been. Always will be.

    And once I grew up and got a house of my own, I vowed to have a big party every year. Sometimes it’s a holiday party, sometimes it’s a birthday party, sometimes it’s a backyard barbecue. And sometimes, when I’m feeling really industrious, I’ll have all three.

    But parties can be your own worst enemy, financially.

    If you’re anything like me, you still have that frat party mentality -- the more, the merrier. I start by inviting 40 of our closest friends, then add the peripheral 20, then another 10, then 5 or 6 more that I barely even know. Just in case. After all, there’s nothing worse than throwing a party when no one comes.

    There's just something about dipping random foodstuffs into a warm, gooey, savory, delicious pot of melted cheese, isn't there? Enter: This recipe for cheese fondue by Tyler Florence. It's the perfect go-to wintertime (really anytime) comfort food treat. Obviously you could go to your local Melting Pot to get your warm cheese fix, but what better way to spend a night in than making some yourself. Plus, this way you get to stay inside ... and stay warm!

    (In case you haven't noticed, it's been a pretty frigid week.)

    Of course you can switch up the recipe in any way you'd like -- mixing up the types of cheese, adding different kinds of alcohol, using more or less garlic, mustard, etc. -- but this is a fine start if this is your first time cheese fondue-ing. Slice up some French bread chunks as well as some fresh fruits and veggies and you're good to go. And it takes less than a half hour to prepare! Come on, any time you can dip anything into cheese ... it's usually a successful meal.

    Thanksgiving has always been an important holiday to me. This isn't because I am particularly moved by the story of the pilgrims' survival. Nor is it because I am really into turkey (let's be honest, it can run a little dry). For me, Thanksgiving tends to coincide with my mother's birthday, and it comes right on the heels of my brother's birthday as well.

    As a result, Thanksgiving for me is synonymous with family, with pure unadulterated joy. It's also changed as the years went on -- people joined and left our table. As time passed our Thanksgivings changed, even as our food comas remained constant. It will always be my favorite holiday. It's already packed with some of my favorite memories, good, bad, and bittersweet. I want to share 3 of them with you.

    Whoa, best ever? That's a bold claim to make, especially when everyone is frantically scouring the Internet for recipes since Thanksgiving is coming up fast and furious. Still, this supposedly best ever green bean casserole recipe by Alton Brown should helpfully steer you in the right direction. There's nothing that screams Thanksgiving quite like a perfectly cooked, deliciously crunchy green bean casserole, after all (though with this recipe, Thanksgiving might not be the only time you prepare it!).

    It seems that some folks had problems getting the onions to bake consistently per the reviews, so instead, you might want to buy some fried onions. You really can't go wrong with drenching green beans in mushrooms, garlic, and nutmeg with crunchy onions on top. Just be sure to wear your sweatpants.

    These cocktail meatballs are perfecto for holiday entertaining, since they’re not only delicious and festive with cranberry in the sauce, but you can make them ahead and keep them warm in your crockpot. And if you’re super lazy efficient like me, you’ll start with frozen, pre-prepared meatballs.

    Serve these little goodies with toothpicks and watch them disappear.

    There's one surefire way to lift your family's spirits when one or more of you happen to be having a bad day: announce that it's pizza night. I know it's simple to dial up your local pizzeria and order a pie, but you won't believe how easy -- and even more satisfying -- it is to create this delicious and, might I add beautiful, pepperoni pizza casserole at home. You get the added bonus of living in a house that smells like love and fresh-based goodness and -- did I mention? -- you won't even have to tinker with gooey, annoying dough. Bring it on!

    Kids aren’t the only ones that deserve a little treat for Halloween, right? And how about instead of sneaking Snickers bars out of the candy bowl by the front door, you imbibe in something a little more grown-up? Ok fine. Have both. I know I will!

    This blood orange cocktail is the perfect thing to enjoy this Halloween. If you want to make it extra creepy instead of just delicious, add a plastic spider as garnish, then watch your guests freak out. It’s all about the presentation, man.

    Moms love their wine. That's a fact. I have yet to go to a playdate where a bottle of Chardonnay or Merlot wasn't being poured. But I think there is another even better option being totally ignored, ladies. Beer. Yes. Beer. Sure, it brings up memories of keggers in college or watching a game in a bar, but it can be so much more than that. Seriously. There are hard facts to back this up thanks to the folks at FinancesOnline.com. Take a look at the 7 reasons beer is superior to wine.

    I love me some sangria. Fruity, boozy, refreshing wine in a glass with ice? Yes please. It’s so awesome that it should hardly be relegated to the summer months alone. With a few simple switches, you can take this treat into the flavors of fall.
