In a year like no other, you may be looking for different ideas for Christmas dinner.
Well, I’ve got you covered with dinner recipe ideas to suit lots of tastes!
From a traditional turkey to other holiday dinner recipes, make this year special no matter what.I love turkey dinner at Christmas but with gatherings of less people I want to show you how to make other menus.
I firmly believe you can make any type of food special by setting the scene. Think: candles and greenery; a nice tablecloth; using the ‘good plates’ and a lovely playlist.
So with that in mind, here are 8 menus using recipes right from the blog & my e-Cookbook that you can make for your Christmas dinner and even New Year’s Eve!

Connecting over food around the table is one of the things I miss THE MOST this year. So, you could even make the same dinner menu as your family and friends from this list and then enjoy together virtually!
