Here’s what was on the Holiday table for Christmas 2021! Enjoy!
Granddaddy's Stuffed Artichokes
Each Christmas, my grandfather cooks up huge batches of these delectable vegetables for the whole family, and they always, ALWAYS steal the show!
Gingerbread Snack Cake
I decided to tinker, taste, and create what I think is the most pillowy and moist (I said it), most fragrantly spiced, most delightfully easy gingerbread snack cake to enjoy all holiday season long.
This Chicory Salad with Garlicky Breadcrumbs and Fresno Chive Vinaigrette holds up beautifully in all its festive colors and crunchy textures and plays amazingly well with the other delicious bites you crave on your holiday table.
Turkish Spiced Leg of Lamb
This lamb is rich, fragrant with garlic, spices, and fresh herbs and roasted to perfection so the surface is crisp and the meat is juicy and tender. It pairs perfectly with fluffy rice, scented with saffron and layered with currants and slivered almonds before being toasted to crisp, buttery perfection for a textural play that is utter holiday happiness.
Crème Brûlée French Toast
Easy to cook up for a crowd, festive enough to befit the holiday, but fast enough that you’re not going to spend the morning over a hot stove. Behold, the custardy soft center and crisp, caramelized brown sugar topping of Creme Brûlée French Toast!
One of my favorite holiday traditions is making batch after batch of these delightfully simple, epically buttery, sugary, melt-in-your-mouth cookies all week long leading up to Santa’s big debut.
Popcorn Chicken & Shrimp
This is my version of Publix's glorious fried chicken – just-peppery-enough, ultra-crispy coating with juicy, perfectly seasoned chicken hidden below. Plus add some crisp and tender Coconut & Panko Fried Popcorn Shrimp and a bomb little sweet and spicy sauce.
