Holiday Recipes are some of my very favorite recipes of the year. There’s something special about coming together with family and friends and sitting together around a holiday table. Food is a huge part of the season, but slaving away in the kitchen doesn’t have to be. Here you’ll find over 130 of my all time favorite EASY Holiday Recipes, from appetizers to dessert and everything in between.
Finger food! Dips! Small bites! OH MY! Appetizers just so happen to be my very favorite holiday food group! I just can’t get enough. From Shrimp Ceviche to Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots, we have something for everyone.
HOLIDAY SIDE DISHES
Great side dish recipes are an absolute must when gathering with friends and family around the holidays. A perfect Thanksgiving or Christmas table is made whole by the dishes that complement that turkey or ham, such as mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, or pretzel salad. We have it all!
HOLIDAY MAIN COURSE
These EASY Main Course recipes are tried and true and ready to be the absolute STAR of the show on your holiday table! The success of Thanksgiving Lunch or Christmas Dinner sometimes hangs in the balance of the perfect Turkey, Ham, or Brisket recipe. I’m constantly searching for the next EASY recipe that’s sure to wow every guest at your party.
Growing up, I loved nothing more than my Mom’s holiday baking. Nothing feels more like home than a Hershey Kiss Cookie or Homemade French Silk Pie. The holidays are not a time for dieting, and these amazing, EASY Dessert Recipes are just the reward you need.
There’s always room for dessert, especially at the holidays. Even if you already filled up on Apps, Sides, and Mains, I’m quite sure you can always make room for these sweet treats. You deserve it!
We’ve made it to the end of the holiday feast! We are ready to sit back (have someone else do the dishes of course!), relax, and have a festive cocktail. I LOVE coming up with fun and new holiday drink recipes, both mocktails and cocktails.
These fun drink recipes, from punch to mimosas, are sure to top off any holiday party and take things from good to great. You’re sure to be asked for these recipes, but feel free to keep your secrets to yourself. You’ve mastered holiday entertaining, and no one needs to know how simple it all really was. Cheers!
