A few weeks ago, I was honored to be featured on WGN TV Chicago’s “Lunchbreak” segment! I was in town visiting our new shop inside Bloomingdale’s Medinah Home Store, and was asked to share some of my favorite holiday recipes.
Palmiers with Parsley Pepita Pesto
These light puff-pastry appetizers couldn’t be simpler! They are inspired by a recipe from The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins. Feel free to substitute ingredients for the filling! Prosciutto, honey mustard, and Parmesan are perfect too!
This DELICIOUS and simple recipe is something I learned from Jamie Oliver’s wonderful cookbook, Cooking with Jamie. This one is a tradition–it’s my family’s go-to dessert, and we are NOT allowed to have Christmas Eve without it!
Buche de Thanksgiving
Bûche is the French word for “log,” and a Bûche de Noël is is a chocolate cake made to look like a tree log and served as a traditional French Christmas dessert. This is a twist on that using the flavors of Thanksgiving, from Cold Weather Cooking by Sarah Leah Chase.
