  • Mulled Cider & Wine

    Beverage: I love catching up during the holidays over a warm cup and a nice conversation. For a non-alcoholic option, just do Cider and Spices!

  • Garlic Cheese Bombs

    Appetizer: These Garlic Cheese Bombs are the closest things to Brazilian pao de queijo that are quick and easy to make! :)

  • Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark

    Snack: This recipe makes an excellent gift for coworkers or an add-on to presents for family. Easy to make in large quantities and store in the refrigerator or freezer for a long time. Great to have on hand when unexpected guests stop in for a visit!

  • Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Chili

    Soup: Every year you have extra turkey left over - there are only so many sandwiches you can make and I love soups and chilis.

  • Turkey Chili

    Soup: This is the very first recipe I truly developed on my own. It came from really wanting soup one day and only having leftover thanksgiving turkey to use along with some pantry staples.

  • French Onion Soup

    Soup: This is part of my 2021 Christmas Eve Dinner, a gourmet feast I have made every year since 2010(except 2020). I started this tradition with my wife and in-laws, and it has grown to include my children and my parents when they moved to be closer to me in 2016.

  • Spinach Casserole (New York Times Menu Cookbook, 1966)

    Side Dish: Three generations of my family have made this recipe every Thanksgiving and Christmas since the1960s.

    Submitted by Nell Gram, Instructional Content Editor

  • Cornbread Dressing

    Side Dish: This is a combination of my mom's recipe and my own, and we've had this every year during the holidays for as long as I can remember
