My husband and I are spending our first Christmas dinner on our own with our daughter (1.5 years old but very good eater and more adventurous palette than me!)
I want to cook something special and memorable, maybe something I can cook for years to come and make our Christmas tradition. I would not say "money is no object" but I am willing to spend a bit more because it's a special occasion. I'm an intermediate cook. I rarely eat meat so I have little experience with it but I think the occasion calls for meat, at least as far as my husband and daughter are concerned! They are dedicated carnivores. I guess I'm a bit intimated by "fancy" meat like prime rib or lamb or even ham or turkey. The most I ever made was a chicken breast.
What do you think? Any ideas of what I can cook? I'm not a expert chef but I read recipes really carefully and take my time, so I generally have good results.
Join the party—there'll be cake.
