Ten Most Delicious Treats for This Christmas

Christmas is one of the most festive holidays on the calendar. With all the celebration, shopping and decorating we can never overlook holiday meals. Every year we look for some exclusive and delicious dishes which can add into the merriment of our holiday spirit. If you are also looking for perfect holiday foods and drinks then check out our list below.

·       Roasted or Stuffed Turkey

It may seem too good to be true but turkey can be healthy too. Turkey is high in protein and low in fat, so eat as much as you want. As stuffed turkey is the most loved sight on Christmas table, try stuffing your turkey with cornbread this year. A simple cornbread stuffing with water chestnut and mushrooms offers a great combination of texture and taste. If you are bored with regular roasted turkey then try to roast a boneless turkey this year. Not only is deboning easy but a boneless turkey cooks faster than usual.

·       Pumpkin Pecan Pie

Pumpkin is normally associated with Thanksgiving, but it does not have to be. You can make it a part of your Christmas menu as well. If you love pumpkin but can't pass up that rich, nutty slice of pecan pie then give yourself a double treat, make a pumpkin pecan pie and top it off with a cognac-spiked whipped cream. You can even prepare its flaky crust 3 days in advance if you want to.

·       Christmas Candy

Christmas is incomplete without Christmas candy. Savor your taste buds with sweet butter toffee candies this year. Try something new and innovative, try peanut butter, fudge and butter candies this Christmas.

·       Lamb Leg

There can be nothing better than luscious leg of lamb stuffed with mint pesto on Christmas dinner. Treat your loved ones with a juicy slice of boneless lamb spiraled with a homemade mint pesto this holiday. Lamb leg makes a perfect holiday food when combined with decadent wild mushroom bread pudding.

·       Yule Log

Make your Christmas dinner even more special by adding a traditional desert in it. What can be a better option than Yule Log, for an exclusive Christmas desert. Yule Blog is a kind of sweet roulade which is one of the most liked Christmas desert of France and Quebec.

·       Cranberry Sauce

Instead of opening up a can of jellied cranberry sauce, why not simply make your own cranberry sauce this Christmas. Though cranberry sauce in a can is a convenient grab but its flavor pales in comparison to a homemade simmered sauce with ruby red berries and your choice of signature ingredients. With all the secret ingredients you can add, you would get a sauce far better than canned one.

·       Apple Sparkler

Looking for a festive nonalcoholic drink? This combination of sparkling apple cider and raspberry juice, will serve you the best. By garnishing this refreshing drink with citrus wedges, you can do the trick.

·       Herbed Pineapple Refresher

Add a refreshing drink on your Christmas menu this year. A combination of ginger, pineapple juice, orange juice, lime juice, and cilantro makes this blended drink a perfect addition to any gathering.
