They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and I think they’re right. The holiday season seems to unburden us from reason and indulge our every whim: Christmas cookies for breakfast, sparkling wine on standby, and so many opportunities to just eat, and eat...and eat. 

With that last part, we can help. For December, we’re ready with recipes that feel as festive as the season—dishes suited as much for entertaining as they are for cozying up with family.

A sneak peak of what’s to come

If you’re celebrating Christmas, we’re here to help with menu ideas to satisfy your schedule and your guests’ preferences (even the picky ones!). From Christmas classics that never tire, like goose legs and fondue, to new seasonal ideas with orange, parsnip, and cabbage, there’s no shortage of inspiration for your kitchen. And don’t worry—if you’re not so keen on the whole holiday thing, we’re still here for your weeknight dinner, with 5-ingredient dinners, noodle recipes, and more.
