Instead of worrying about pairing every food item with a specific wine, choose a brand that goes well with many different dishes. "I love to serve Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. Both wines are table essentials that complement everything from turkey to savory sides. If you have a large group, pick up Woodbridge 1.5 liter bottles. They’re fun, easy, I like to host a casual, family-style meal for the and generous!"
Like a good southern girl, Molly loves her mashed potatoes - not what you'd expect from a model. She loves creating a mini mashed potato bar, featuring crowd-please toppings like chives, cheese, bacon bits, onions, sour cream, and steamed broccoli.
To keep the kids from getting bored, Molly suggests letting them in on the fun early on. "Create a scavenger hunt and have the little ones retrieve holiday-themed items to fill a vase as a centerpiece. Have older kids set the table or package up desserts to go," she says.
Speaking of desserts, everyone loves pumpkin pie (if they say otherwise, they're not to be trusted), but sometimes it's fun to break tradition a bit. Instead of doing a pie, maybe go for some pumpkin spice brownies, which Molly plans on baking for her family and friends as gifts. Who am I kidding? You should still make pie.
