8 Roasts to Ring in the Holidays

December 18, 2013

Centerpieces are key to any holiday feast. No, not the tree in your living room or some mistletoe overhead -- the centerpiece we're referring to is in your oven.

Roasts are made for the holidays. They're warm, succulent and satisfying enough to feed a crowd of two or twenty, and still provide you with leftovers the next day. And all they require is some simple flavors and a little lovin' in your oven. If you're nice, you might even be allowed to do the honors.
