⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Christmas Dinner Recipe Round-Up

Cranberries

My holiday track record is typically hit or miss. Some things come out great and some things just don’t – I don’t know why exactly, except that I’m a little bit kitchen cursed.

Lately however, the Pinterest Recipes I’ve used have been kind of amazing. Meaning, I am getting complimented on my cooking and sometimes asked for the recipe – that NEVER happened in the past.

That’s part of why I love Pinterest (and its linked blogs) so much, it can be such a great resource for learning, and takes some of the fear away from experimenting.

If you have a touch of the kitchen curses too, up your odds of success by sticking with recipes that consistently receive 5 stars.

There’s no guarantee yours will come out perfect but it’s one of those go big or go home moments, only, if you’re the one serving, it will be more like, if they don’t like it, they can go home.

Hey, you tried and that’s half the battle.

If you’re tasked to bring a dish to someone’s house picking an item with visual appeal is sure to be a crowd-pleaser – and if it doesn’t taste good at least it looks nice.

Here are some of the highest rated recipes picked out specifically for holiday entertaining. These are all over the map from way meaty to vegan, so there’s a little something for everyone.

Try a few of these out – I believe in you – you can do it!
