Rosemary Beef Tenderloin with Root Vegetables
Planning a New Year’s Eve dinner? Make it a feast with this impressive roast!
If beef seems to be too heavy an option, go lighter by getting a big fillet of salmon and roasting it gently with herbs and citrus.
Horseradish–Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes
Pair that salmon, above, with these zesty, creamy potatoes. To make them even creamier, use a potato ricer.
Roasted Mushrooms and Radicchio
This ultimate fall side dish boasts the rich flavor of mushrooms, a little bit bitter from fresh radicchio, and a sweet note from balsamic.
Chocolate Coconut Truffles
One of the best ways to keep the party going is to have plenty of bonbons available for snacking on. These simple truffles are easy to make—and even easier to eat.
Cranberry Pâte de Fruit
If you’re a cranberry fan, this may be the last chance to cook up the seasonal treat until next fall. Use it to make these tangy-sweet cubes.
This bourbon-based take on the elegant turn-of-the-century cocktail comes from Mary Heffernen of Five Marys Farms. It’s dangerously quaffable.
Hot Toddy with Charred Oranges
If the weather outside is frightful, try this. It’s festive and great for warming you up on a cold night.
Pecan, Hazelnut, and Coconut Tart
2021 has been nuts. Send off the old year with this extra-nutty tart.
