A once-a-year decadent treat that is beaming with holiday magic: christmas morning star bread. It’s the festive version of a pan of cinnamon rolls…rich and buttery dough, layered with an orange & vanilla scented brown sugar filling, baked until golden and bubbling, then topped with a sweet pecan caramel sauce and powdered sugar. The BEST thing to wake up to on Christmas morning.
The holiday baking season is in full swing! To celebrate, I’ve made some of my absolute favorite Christmas cookies + we’re giving away a Bob’s Red Mill gift card to one of you!!
This spicy tomato seafood pasta is a festive, absolutely mouth-watering pasta dish fit for a beautiful Christmas table. It’s simple to make and is bursting with flavor – full of caramelized shallots, fennel, garlic, red pepper, white wine, crushed tomatoes, shrimp, and mussels.
Bringing a little bit of luxury to Christmas this year with a sweet and savory cheese board, full of Petrossian’s finest selections. And the best part? We’re giving away a cheese basket to one of you!
If there’s going to be one soup on your Christmas table, it should be this! Creamy mushroom soup full of rich flavor and topped with crispy rosemary breadcrumbs.
The only pizza you’ll need this season: winter squash & prosciutto pizza with garlicky kale, creamy burrata, and sharp fontina cheese. It’s such a comforting seasonal recipe that is so incredibly delicious. Plus, we’re kicking off a very festive week of giveaways here on the blog!
I’ve partnered with the American Lamb Board to bring you a very comforting December dinner to cozy up with over the weekend: lamb bolognese flavored with lots of herbs and parmesan. It’s a simple, rustic sauce that gets simmered on the stovetop until rich in flavor. I’m tossing it with paccheri pasta and calling it a day. It makes for the best dinner to head into the festive holiday month!
Sharing a wintery toast recipe today that will be the perfect appetizer for this holiday season: caramelized brussels sprout toast with burrata and bacon! It’s a slightly “elevated” toast with some special ingredients, but yet it’s very simple to prepare. The flavors are sweet + savory, with just a touch of creaminess from the burrata cheese and a crunch from the roasted hazelnuts.
Kicking off the holiday season with a weekend full of Christmas decorating and recipe developing…while of course eating all the Thanksgiving leftovers! Including this pumpkin cheesecake with shortbread crust & brandy pecans.
