The holidays are in full swing and nothing says a winter welcome than with food. Need some winter food and drink inspiration? Here’s what’s at the top of my list this month.

Winter Charcturie Board

Okay, you’re probably thinking “I’m over charcuterie boards”. Well, I’m not. And this time of year, our boards turn into a winter edition. Think dark winter fruits like citrus, herb accents like rosemary and time, and dried seasonal items like cranberries, toasted nuts, and more robust cheeses for a hearty winter charcuterie board.

There’s just something about a perfectly buttered soft roll to slather, dip, sandwich, or devour alone. But a good roll is nothing if not paired with an equally good butter and this sweet salty pairing featuring salted honey has my name all over it.

Chai Shortbread Cookies

If you can’t tell, we are on a butter theme and I’m not mad about it. Shortbread is the perfect treat to add in a cookie gift box or to serve after a large holiday dinner. Adding in chai spices adds a level of flavor and elevation to a standard crumbly cookie.

Campfire Cocktail

While I’m not a huge drinker, something about warming yourself from the inside out is something that many look forward to this time of year. This drink highlights a toasted marshmallow with fiery whiskey for the perfect warming combo.

Heavy stews, meats, and sausages typically get a lot of paparazzi during the cold weather but crab is another seasonal protein just a special and ready to be highlighted in winter dishes. Take a homemade pappardelle and toss it with seasonal mushrooms and crab in a light creamy sauce to keep you warm on cold nights.
