It’s the holiday season and for many of us, that means a lot of dinner parties and, sometimes, a lot of last minute scrambling. If you need to whip up something delicious and you’re pressed for time, we’ve got you covered!

Something to pull together when you’re hosting last minute

Dumplings


Once your dumplings are cooked – you can either steam them or bake them – arrange them like a wreath on a plate and garnish with cilantro and chilies.

Something to take when you’re invited to a party

Mulled wine


Combine a bottle of wine, apple cider, and spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and simmer the wine on the stove. You can even add fun ingredients like blood orange or grapefruit soda!

Something that will wow your colleagues at the holiday pot luck

Deconstructed chocolate bark


Melt your chocolate, lay it out on a baking sheet, then add whatever ingredients you want, like honey roasted peanuts, biscuits, shortbread, popcorn, crushed candy canes, dried fruit, or peppermints. Once all your ingredients are added, put the chocolate in the fridge, then take it out, break it up, and serve.
