Enjoy your time with your family by making one of these recipes for your Christmas get-together. From traditional holiday favorites to trendy new dishes, get ready to start cooking!
For an easy appetizer, try this Christmas cheese ball recipe from Taste of Home. The ball blends together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, pimentos and spices. Serve the cheese ball on a decorative plate surrounded by crackers.
Instead of a marshmallow topping, this recipe for sweet potato casserole from Food & Wine is finished off with crushed cornflakes and pecans. The crunchy mix matches perfectly with the cream sweet potatoes.
This yeasty bread, peppered with golden raisins and candied fruit and mixed with spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, is a traditional German favorite. Make extras of this stollen recipe from Martha Stewart for your family and to give away to friends. Top with an easy frosting of powdered sugar and milk for a sweet finish!
Jazz up the holiday ham with mustard and maple syrup along with spices like cumin and garlic. This spice-rubbed ham with apple-maple sauce from Better Homes & Gardens makes for a great dinner – and even better leftovers.
Simple flavorings go into this rib roast recipe from Paula Deen. With just salt, pepper and garlic powder as a rub on the roast, this meal comes together quickly and easily.
Do you have someone in your family or guests coming over who can't have gluten? With these cute gluten-free gingerbread men from The Culinary Life, everyone will be asking for seconds!
End your evening with this rich chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake from MetroParent's Crumbs. Serve individual slices swirled with chocolate syrup and dotted with fresh berries.
