The holidays may mean different things to different people, but one thing is always involved: food! From traditional turkeys, roast beef and ham to pies, cakes and Christmas cookies for dessert, we’ve got all of your cooking and baking needs covered. In addition to Thanksgiving recipes, find ideas for Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, plus appetizers and finger foods for New Year’s. And don’t forget the true star of every holiday spread: the side dishes. Casseroles, potatoes, baked au gratins and creamy soups are just a few easy ideas you may want to add to your spread. Start menu planning now!
These bites of wonderful are always the appetite-setters for your gathering. A simple bacon-wrapped date or stuffed mushroom can go a long way in getting your crowd in the holiday spirit.
Holiday mains are often considered a no-recipe-required element of the feast, but we beg to differ. There are plenty of ways to spice up your main turkey, roast or ham. Try a new twist on a holiday classic.
Casseroles: They're our secret favorite on the holiday table, with good reason. Comforting green bean casserole to candied yams are packed with deliciousness and nostalgia.
If you have ever felt stuck in a rut with your holiday menu, side dishes are easy ways to add something new to your spread. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry and cornbread are essentials, but we also have creamed veggies, hearty soups and more to help you get creative.
A holiday feast isn’t complete without a big, sweet finish. Cozy, holiday cakes from warm apple to red velvet, to good old fashioned pumpkin pie are easy ways to satisfy the sweet tooth of family and friends.
Cookies are welcome treats year-round. But they are also synonymous with the Holidays. Not only are they easy hosting solutions, they make great gifts and stocking stuffers!
Speaking of sweets, there’s more to holiday desserts than cakes, pies and cookies. From bread pudding to giftable candies, to toffee and chocolate fudge, these dessert ideas go beyond your typical cookie sheet.
Few things make spirits bright like a cozy, festive breakfast on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning. Pumpkin pancakes, egg soufflés, corned beef hash and fancy French toast will bring you warm fuzzies and good cheer!
