With work schedules, Christmas parties and gift exchanges, the holiday season can really get busy and meal prep can fall to the wayside. When you do catch an evening enjoying a cozy stay-at-home moment, good simple foods should be on the menu.

This week, right beside our decadent holiday fare, we are showcasing simple, healthy flavors to offset the sweet desserts and twinkling cocktails.
