Some folks have their holiday menu planned out weeks, even months, in advance. Others use the same tried-and-true menu year after year.

And then there’s the rest of us.

I have a recipe or two that I make each year, but otherwise my recipe choices vary depending on what the plans are—am I responsible for the main dish and most of the sides, or am I just complementing the main dish with a few of my own?

Maybe just dessert?

No matter how you slice it, I’m not a fan of holiday recipes that take forever to make.

Things need to be simple and unstressful.

I need to be able to enjoy the guests and not worried about how a recipe’s going to turn out, or spending too much time over the stove in the kitchen (though I’d argue that most people end up gravitating to the kitchen anyway, so it’s not that lonely in there).

Here are some of my tried-and-true holiday recipes—including cocktails and breakfast options! —in case you’re looking for a few to add to your menu.

Visit the Holiday Kitchen Tools section of my Amazon Shop for some of my favorites that help keep meal prep simple, too!

Hi, I'm Liza, a self-proclaimed word-nerd who loves getting sucked into whimsical stories and epic movies. I have laid-back, practical attitude towards life, and as a foodie at heart, I relish the chance to both cook and eat. (No picky-eater here!) I'm always on the hunt for the perfect mojito, inspiration for another tattoo and time to finish my novel.
