Holiday Recipes Roundup: 84 Recipes from Drinks to Desserts

Escali's Holiday Recipe Roundup

Plan the perfect holiday gathering with 84+ recipes for everything from appetizers and drinks to casseroles and cookies.

The key to a successful holiday gathering is family. Getting everyone together, reminiscing on years past and gossiping about the year ahead is what makes the holidays great. Though family should be the focus, food is usually the main organizing force through the event. Whether you are gathering around the appetizers with a drink or deep in conversation over dessert; food is the glue that helps us forge our bonds and ensures the months of anticipation leading up to the holiday season.

Please enjoy this list of our favorite holiday recipes and have a happy holiday season!
