...they all look festive and fabulous!
The Christmas Wreath in particular looks lovely. And tasty.
The beef dish I'd go for.
Wonderful recipes, very seasonal.
Delicious looking recipes. I'm planning a pannacotta for some time over the holidays.
The beef sounds and looks very yummy. I made cookies yesterday. Broccoli-cookies, just suitable for cold days, too (3C here).
Very nice suggestions. The beef recipe sounds delicious.
this is my favorite braised beef recipe and the Advent wreath as a salad is great!
That salad is so beautifully presented and the beef sounds yummy.
They all look good, I must try that salad! Thanks! Valerie
All three look and sound great!
Thanks for sharing.
Take care, enjoy your day!
What a marveluos Christmas salad! I had it several times. Moreover, that salad shows the colours (green, red and white) of the Italian flag :-))) I also had panna cotta which you mentioned.
Thank you🎄 So delicious everything looks. The wrath is really amazing. Merry Christmas to you and your love ones. Thank you for your tireless work on your blog. All the best from Norway ❤️🕯
Thank you for all the interesting articles that I have read here and Merry Christmas.
That wreath salad is stunning. I am going to do that unless I run smack out of time! It's perfect.
Merry Christmas to you!
the salad looks wonderful!
Wow that salad looks far too nice to eat, but if I must.... I must admit I've been eating lots of salads on our holiday to Spain, and really enjoying them. Take care and have a very happy week, Sue xx
I love that wreath, that would be a very pretty presentation wouldn't it!
wishing you and your family a Very Merry Christmas!

Oh wow I really love that salad :-D
LOVE the wreath salad. What a clever and beautiful idea.
I especially love the wreath. You often judge food by how it looks before you ever eat it. This one is note worthy.
They all look so festive! Thanks for the recipes! Have a Merry Christmas Jan!
Gracias por las recetas se ven geniales. Te mando un abrazo y te deseo una feliz navidad para ti y tu familia.
The dressing recipe sounds wonderful.
My boss made this dressing one time and it did not look appealing to me but I thought I would try some to be polite. I totally loved it. I ask the ingredients and she told me but not the proportions. I always meant to ask that but did not till years later and then she could not even remember the dressing I was talking about.
In case I don't get back here...Happy Holidays to you and your family.
lol, love the Santa children.
Wish you a Merry Christmas.
Muy buenas esas recetas. Besos.
These are amazing Jan! Thank you! I love the decorations at the end too! Big Hugs!
The wreath is spectacular and clever and the panna cotta dessert looks so inviting. Great recipes- thanks
