Holiday Menu Suggestions (+Giveaway) Recipe

The holiday season is the perfect time to prepare a pretty table filled with fancy dishes. Last year, Lulu and I spent the holidays with my parents in Paris. This year, I'm catching up and I'm preparing dinner for my husband's family. I have a vague idea of what the menu is going to be and if you're also still wondering what to prepare, I've gathered a few of my favorite holiday recipes. Enjoy!

Today's giveaway is a gift pack from John Kelly Chocolates. The company specializes in elevating fudge with the use of high-quality ingredients. The chocolate pieces are enormous, adding to the decadence of the product. The chocolate walnut bars, which are my favorite, are so dense and chocolate-y. I also enjoyed the hawaiian salted fudge bites. For a chance to gorge on all the fudgy goodness from John Kelly Chocolates, just enter on the 25 Days of Giveaways page.

Spinach and Pecan Stuffed Salmon Fillet with Hollandaise Sauce Recipe

The key to flavorful and tender salmon is to cook it medium-rare. Just quickly pan-sear the salmon on each side, then bake in the oven for a few minutes. It will come out moist and delicious.

Salmon by itself is incredibly good for you, and these tasty fillets are stuffed with ingredients rich in essential fatty acids and omega-rich nutrients such as pecans, pecan oil, cream cheese, sweet basil, spinach and onion chives.

To make the dish ultra fancy, I served the fish with a Hollandaise sauce, sautéed button mushrooms and wild rice. I figure that with all the healthy ingredients, a little decadence is deserved!
