…”It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” Well, I am home for a week hanging out with family and friends and the slight chill in the air has this girl wearing boots and scarves and oh so happy! So yes, it truly is beginning to feel like Christmas.
I wanted to share all my Christmas favorites and some festive sweet and savory foods we are going to be eating this next upcoming week!
The Main Event
We will be eating this scrumptious meal from the “A Very Merry Christmas to All” chapter of my cookbook, All American Paleo Table. I set this festive chapter up in a way that you would have everything from breakfast to dinner sides, tender, juice meat and even plenty of desserts to suite any taste preference!
- Browned Butter Cauliflower Mash from All American Paleo Table
- Herb and Garlic Crusted Beef Tenderloin from All American Paleo Table
- Crispy Beans from All American Paleo Table
- Apple, Pomegranate and Butterleaf Salad
Throughout the Christmas season, I really love keeping sweet treats on hand that are made with healthy ingredients so that I am never tempted by the more conventional dessert table! These are all so simple to make and many of them store fabulously for a few days! You even could make these as fun, edible Christmas presents!

Snacks and Nibbles
I love having something to nibble on while waiting for the meal to cook or to enjoy with a cocktail and friends!
Don’t forget to eat the most important meal of the day! Both these biscuits and cinnamon rolls can be made a day in advance so you have something scrumptious to wake up to on Christmas morning!
