What to Cook for the Holidays – Tips to Newly-Weds

Families get together during Christmas eve, it’s a tradition done every year where Christmas dinner is celebrated by millions of families throughout the world. Some cooks find it the best season to show off their best recipes and the most delicious desserts. Depending upon your sense of cooking adventure and time constraints there are many recipes for Christmas dinner.

If you’re the beginner cook, or the newly-wed, a traditional seafood meal can make your first Christmas eve more romantic and flavored. Shrimps, calamari, scungilli, baccala, mussels, clams and some delicious fish can make you a wonderful meal together. Don’t worry too much of complexity, simply prepare any of your choices in the manner you two would enjoy. Grill them, cook them on a clay terracotta and serve it right from the stove on your terracotta, or bake them in the oven with lemon wedges.

Don’t forget a good roasting rub for a taste that’s so savory. Simply roast vegetables with colorful bell peppers in a pan with 1 tsp. of olive oil and sea salt to serve with the main course.

Think of any dessert along with your favorite wine. But see to it the dessert should not be sweeter than wine. It still pays a lot enjoying both your wine and dessert.

If you want to put some challenge to your holiday cooking, a roasted monkfish is a good beginning. The wonderful taste of the fish will make things all flavorful. You can enhance it with balsamic for olive sauce, or a plain lemon mash. I tell you, it will not be your last.

Bring that love to ooze on the holidays. Goodluck!

Getting those years of all work is more than inspiring to sit and express everything worth reading for all ages. But you'll see me more often write about health, cooking and the environment. Drop me a line if you have anything you'd like to talk. I'd be more than happy to hear from you. Carolyn
