Holiday Magic is all in the Details

There’s so much about this holiday season that I love, and a lot of it seems to revolve around food and family.

To me, holiday magic means enjoying a cup of thick and creamy eggnog under a plaid blanket on the couch while you watch your favorite Christmas movie. It means holiday music playing in the background while you sit around the table playing games and snacking on cheese and crackers with the family. Holiday magic is drinking hot cocoa by the fireplace while a winter wind blows outside and watching Christmas tree lights dance and twinkle. It’s baking homemade pies and sugar cookies and just enjoying the quiet moments of friends and family.

Your kitchen is behind the scenes of all that holiday magic, and your appliances are hard at work! If you’re a mom with lots of little “sticky fingers,” a designer who loves a stylish kitchen, or a homeowner who’s looking to replace your old appliances with the latest chic and durable appliances, then you’ll love the new Whirlpool Fingerprint-Resistant Black Stainless Steel Suite featured here with some helpful holiday entertaining tips!

Holiday Entertaining: Our Best Recipes and Tips!

1. What’s in the fridge?

Your refrigerator is essential to holiday entertaining and you should put it to work! The new Black Stainless Steel Refrigerator from Whirlpool is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a lovely matte black which makes my kitchen look much more modern and chic.

This is a huge style upgrade from my old white appliances—see before and after photos below!

Whirlpool’s Black Stainless Steel Appliances have a fingerprint-resistant finish that absolutely does not show ANY fingerprints! It’s incredible and pretty miraculous if you’ve got lots of little fingers around. These appliances look good even after those cute little smudgy hands are all over them.

It’s a beautiful refrigerator with plenty of room for everything you need to host a festive holiday party! Here are our favorite fridge-related recipes and entertaining tips!

  • Make this awesome, easy holiday cheese platter for an appetizer or light snack when you’re playing games. Make it ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until guests come.

  • Stock up on festive holiday drinks like eggnog and sparkling juices and keep them in the fridge to have handy for holiday parties or for when friends unexpectedly drop-by.

2. Lots of Lovin’ in the Oven

Whenever we go to my grandma’s house for the holidays, her kitchen always smells of the most delicious things and her oven is always hot, churning out warm, buttery rolls, spiral-sliced ham and mouth-watering pies. She cooks from the heart and the heart of her kitchen is her oven.

I try too recreate the holiday magic of my childhood by using her recipes.

I am in love with the sleek new Black Stainless Steel Range from Whirlpool. It’s black matte finish is stylish and matches my other Whirlpool appliances perfectly. I love the cast-iron grates that are actually dishwasher safe!

*HOT TIP* When they get messy, you can just put the Whirlpool stovetop grates right in the dishwasher to clean them—no more scrubbing!

Here are our favorite holiday recipes perfect for your oven!

3. Microwave Magic

The Whirlpool Fingerprint-Resistant Black Stainless Steel Microwave is really cool. 

It is one smart microwave with Scan-to-Cook Technology that allows you to scan a frozen food barcode with your smartphone and then send customized cooking instructions straight to your microwave.

Here are some AMAZING holiday favorites you can whip up with the help of your microwave:

4. Staying on Top of the Dishes

Dishes, like bills and laundry, will always be there; the key is saying on top of them. So who does the dishes? Answer: everybody. The best thing I did as a mom was expect my family to put their dishes in the dishwasher when they left the table. It’s a simple tip, but one that’s saved me a lot of work. 

Even my youngest, who is three years old, can put his dish away. And with the Whirlpool Fingerprint-Resistant Black Stainless Steel Dishwasher, I never have to wipe off my kids’ cute little fingerprints.

Here are some fun before and after photos of my updated kitchen appliances you might enjoy!

This holiday time of year is full of special moments. Snuggles under a blanket as we read Christmas books, writing letters to Santa around the kitchen table with a plate of gingerbread cookies in the middle—moments I don’t want to miss a second of. And less time spent wiping off fingerprints means more time fro those special moments.

I’m so pleased with how updated and more modern my kitchen looks now. So whether you’re replacing one appliance or an entire suite, the new line of Whirlpool Fingerprint-Resistant Black Stainless Steel appliances will seamlessly fit in or boldly stand out. Have a magical holiday season!
