Another Weekend Special – A Festive Holiday Dinner with Friends

If dinner for eight (or twelve) is on your weekend agenda, I’m happy to help. The holidays are a wonderful time to invite friends over for a casual-elegant dinner. Here are a few ideas …

Put a bottle of prosecco on ice, light the fire and get cozy. You’ll want to start with a savory or two. Perhaps you’d like to try my Greek Mushrooms and/or Butternut Squash Tartlets? No, how about my favorite dip – Baba Ganoush?

When you are ready to move to the table …

Start with a colorful salad. My Romaine & Radicchio Salad with Avocado, Pomegranate & Walnuts is beautiful and delicious. Serve the salad with a basket of Savory Rosemary Biscotti.

For the main course … well, how about Roast Chicken, Lemon Roasted Salmon with Beurre Blanc or Braised Short Ribs? All three would be delicious with a side of Roasted Cauliflower and a spoonful of Whole Grain Pilaf.

Now, for dessert! For rich and delicious and chocolate, you can’t beat my Flourless Chocolate Cake.

Happy holidays and have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
