Dubbed Company's Comin' Coconut Cake, this beauty of a pound cake will have you dreaming up excuses to invite guests for dinner—and dessert.
Plonk this brown sugar glazed ham on your holiday table and then simply step back, listen to the gasped oohs and aahs, accept all manner of accolades, and then watch it disappear.
Holiday diet tactic #142: This stunning cookie tree. Because it sorta makes it harder to demolish a half batch of cookies when doing so would demolish the Christmas tree.
Perfectly browned on the outside and soft, moist, and buttery on the inside. Just a little effortless elegance to accompany your roast.
Seven lords a leaping? Perhaps after partaking of this Christmas cheer it'll be seven lords a leaning.
Pricey but not pretentious, a standing rib roast is essentially a slab of bone-in rib eye steaks standing on end. You could do worse, eh?
Remember those insipid wedges of iceberg buried beneath blobs of bottled blue cheese dressing? This salad will erase all such memories.
Ooooh baby, broccoli blanketed with a rich sauce that takes its oomph from blue cheese and its hint of heat from cayenne.
Silken, garlicky mashed potatoes manifest in mere minutes thanks to a super simple technique that's perfect for when you're entertaining or just plain hungry.
Fennel turns meltingly tender and oh so sweet when slowly, slowly, slowly braised in cream, cheese, and butter. One more reason to be enamored with the holidays.
Sweet. Spicy. Earthy. Puckery. When did anything--or anyone--at your table boast such character? Certain to compensate for your duller dinner invitees.

Shallots take on a dulcet, docile personality when slowly coaxed to a caramelized brown. Not only easy to make, they're easygoing in terms of playing nicely with main courses.
