132 Comfort and Joy

Jumbo shrimp in dill butter; a pork roast stuffed with winter fruits; cauliflower crowned with rye crumbs; a rainbow of roasted carrots; kale and potato purée; an opulent 12-layer chocolate, espresso, and hazelnut cake; and lots more. Sounds like the makings of an elegant Christmas dinner to us.
Potato latkes and zucchini latkes (with apple chutney) are welcome at any Hanukkah party, and this time they’ve brought some friends: egg salad with lemon and fennel; smoked salmon with horseradish cream; endive and escarole salad with mustard-orange vinaigrette; and blackberry walnut cookies.

162 Out of Sight

These holiday cookies—including chocolate hazelnut cookies; orange pistachio crescents; dulce de leche half-moons; glittering lemon sandwich cookies; and mini churros—are so fanciful and so beautiful, it’s almost a shame to eat them. Almost.

172 Merry Morning

On Christmas Day (or any day, for that matter), this brunch has something for everyone: pomegranate Mimosas; baked egg custard with Gruyère; scalloped oven-browned potatoes; maple and black-pepper bacon; and cranberry vanilla coffeecake.

84 Full House

Your guests are settled in, comfortable, and hungry. These hearty dishes—beef stew with potatoes and carrots; chipotle chicken tortilla soup; and more—will definitely keep them happy.
