When you think of the holidays, do you remember the warm smells of turkey roasting in the oven? Or the sweet, cool taste of eggnog? Many times, the strongest memories of the holidays are the delicious foods we usually save for this time of year.

 

Festive Drinks

 

What’s a party without a few drinks? Impress your guests with a few of these festive concoctions.

The Santa Shot. A gorgeous little red and green layered shot that tastes like a candy cane. Learn to make it here.

Scotch Egg-nog Club. It wouldn’t be the holidays without egg nog! Enjoy this drink and learn how to make it here.

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. Don’t forget your non-drinker friends! Whip up this warm, sweet treat with this recipe here.

 

Merry Dishes

 

A curated set of dishes from TeamSWOMI to you…

Sweet Potato Spoonbread. This souffle-like side uses cornmeal to provide structure so the spoonbread won’t fall in the center, even after you scoop out a serving. Check out the recipe here.

Latkes. This potato pancake is a classic Hannukah dish. This recipe pairs it with Horseradish-Sour Cream and Spiced-Thyme Applesauce.

Classic Roasted Duck With Orange-Bourbon-Molasses Glaze. Instead of the tired, old turkey why not try a roasted duck instead? Learn how to make it here.

 

Season’s Desserts

 

Bûche de Noël (Yule Log Cake). Take this 19th century French Christmas tradition into delicious cake form! See how to make it here.

Coconut Cream Pie. Think Christmas, think coconut! No, not exactly. That’s what makes this dessert a pleasant surprise at the end of your meal.

Santa Hat Cheesecake Bites. We eat with your eyes too. Light up those peepers with cheesecake bites that make strawberries look like santa hats! Check it out here.

 

Word Up:

Did any of these recipes inspire you to hop into the kitchen? Or did they just leave you drooling? Either way, we hope your holiday is full of deliciousness.
