Here are a few fun and yummy suggestions for desert and dinner recipes previously featured here on Make:.
How to Brine and Roast a Turkey
Here’s an age-old technique for brining and cooking a turkey. Not only will the resulting turkey be amazing, but using the carcass, you’ll also end up with the most amazing soup broth.
These little tarts, filled with BBQ pulled pork, would make an ideal hors d’oeuvre for a holiday party.
Gluten-Free Curried Pumpkin Soup with Crème Fraiche
Why does pumpkin pie get all of the pumpkin real estate on the holiday table? Here’s a wonderful curried pumpkin soup that might give that pie a run for its money.
Christmassy Ho-Ho-Hoagie Sandwich Monsters
OK, this is more food art than an edible, but one of these on a buffet table with hoagie sandwich fixin’s bar would certain be a big hit.
Frosty The Cheeseball Man From Charles Phoenix
How does the song go? “Frosty, the cheeseball..” Something like that. I love the idea that you make this cheeseball snowman inside of an electric skillet, and then when ready, you turn on the heat and watch your snowman melt into a cheesy fondue. Who doesn’t like interactive/action food?
Christmas Breakfast Wreath
I have a soft spot for sweet breads and this one looks particular mouth-watering. I may have to try this.
Eggnog Cake with Pink Marshmallow Frosting
This recipe had me at egg nog, cake, and marshmallow.
Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Truffles
This simple-looking recipe looks like it would make a very unique and fancy desert that would be fun to serve at a holiday party.
Doctor Who fans will appreciate this recipe for baking and building your own gingerbread TARDIS.
Potluck Necessities: Pie Carrier Tote
This is not a recipe, but instructions for how to make a cloth tote for carrying a pie. I’m going to be transporting a pie tomorrow morning (“Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go”). I may have to try and bodge up one of these today.
