The holiday season is upon us (just a few more weeks ‘til Santa comes!), and everyone is shifting into high gear to prepare.
Last week, a friend of mine shared a brilliant holiday idea with me, and I had to pass it along.
When it comes to holiday meals, we try to uphold tradition and serve the classics. Honey ham, turkey with stuffing, impressive roasts and cookies baked from heirloom recipes have all graced our tables.
But, my friend said to me, “Tina, I love tradition just as much as anyone else, however, my sisters and I want to ensure that we keep the holidays fresh, serving a new entrée or side dish to our family and friends each year, creating an element of surprise and anticipation.” She continued, “Each year, we pick a new cookbook and build a menu around the recipes we like in the book. Of course, we agree to make a certain number of traditional recipes, but that’s where expectations end and creativity begins!”
This year, I’m honored she chose my new book, The Truly Healthy Family Cookbook, for inspiration. My simple yet delicious recipes are guaranteed to bring satisfaction and delight to even the fussiest guest! My Seared Peppered Beef Tenderloin, Mushrooms and Cranberry Pan Sauce; Honeyed Mashed Yams with Pumpkin Seed, and No-Bake Individual Cheesecake Minis with Raspberry Drizzle are just a few options to consider.
And, if you’re shopping for gifts, The Truly Healthy Family Cookbook will be a much-appreciated present. It never hurts to spoil the ones you love with homemade, nutritious meals!
Here’s to the Holidays!
