As we look at the end of 2018 and the start of 2019, many of us will be raising a glass tonight. Let the past here at Seasoned Cooking help you find great ways to enjoy those toasts and make ringing in the New Year an event to be remembered.

A Nod to Nog

Eggnog gets to play in more than drinks at my house during the holiday season. Whether it's factoring into my morning meal or helping dessert end the day, don't overlook the festive, delicious, and far too often overlooked eggnog when it comes to leaning into the holidays.

Curried Seafood Stew

The holidays are about traditions: acknowledging and embracing the old and adding your own touch to make them new. So I'm sharing a fun twist on my own Christmas Eve culinary tradition that will have you singing Joy to the World and more!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

The holidays are upon us and if you are feeling like sitting down and eating a bowl of cookie dough, consider a safer and more festive option and make these stunning Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles and become a hero to friends and family alike!

Streusel-Topped Zucchini Muffins

With winter breaks, holiday guests, and festive brunches all approaching, there's something wonderful about being able to plan ahead and make some sweet morning muffins to give you and yours a chance to catch your breath before digging into the busy season.

How to Create a Beautiful Plate

The presentation of a meal should have these goals in mind: stimulate appetite and build anticipation. And the Christmas entertaining season brings with it special challenges that we're here to help you tackle!

Butternut Alfredo Sauce

Good sauces are worth their weight in gold, especially as the busy holiday season descends upon us. Make a big batch of this beautifully seasonal Butternut Alfredo Sauce and have some on hand to toss with pasta, use on pizza, and add to lasagna.

Cider Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Holiday entertaining often leaves us with lots of question marks in our menu planning when it comes to side dishes to pair with the stellar main courses we choose. Embrace the season and consider Brussels sprouts cooked with crisp bacon and tangy apple cider.

Chipotle Corn Chowder

The Instant Pot is back with another amazing chowder that tastes like it's been cooking all day, but finds your table in less than an hour. It also makes a lot of soup, so feed an army, plan for leftovers, or freeze some for when things get super busy later this month!

Asian Ginger Pork Chops with Broccoli & Cauliflower

Thick cut pork chops get a quick sear, a spicy sauce, and a cuddle in the oven with some broccoli and cauliflower. The result? A quick and simple dinner that will leave you looking forward to pork chops again!

Mushroom Beef Barley Soup

As December begins, there will be many opportunities for fancy food and exploring what might be considered glamorous cuisine. But let's start out simple and satisfying with a hearty Mushroom Beef Barley Soup, complete with homemade beef stock!
