Better Homes & Gardens December 2016 Recipes

Cardamom Sidecar
It's time for a cocktail! This month, we're shaking up cardamom-infused drinks worth toasting. Plus, we're celebrating one of our favorite in-season ingredients: chard. Whip up three veggie-focused recipes including a creamy chard skillet and an easy chard pie.

Smoked Salmon & Chard Gratin

Spice up your weeknight routine with this creamy smoked salmon skillet. Top the whole thing off with buttery dill bread crumbs. 

This super-satisfying egg breakfast features a hearty mix of veggies and a nifty presentation thanks to a cooked-in-the-skillet technique.

Skillet Favorite: Frittata!

This vegetarian frittata one of our favorite quick weeknight meals. Serve the dish with a fresh salad. 

Cardamom Old-Fashioned

Our favorite part of this take on a classic old-fashioned? The sweet vanilla-roasted orange slice. It gives the drink a rich caramelized flavor. 

Savory Chard Pie

This dinner is as easy as pie. Simply layer chard, goat cheese, dates, and ham on purchased pie dough. Then bake to golden perfection. 

Cardamom Negroni

A homemade cardamom-infused gin is the key to this classy cocktail. Garnish each glass with a vanilla-roasted orange slice for extra flair. 

Always-refreshing ginger beer takes a fruity turn with the added splash of pomegranate.

Cocktail Must-Have: Ginger Beer

The key to this fruity cocktail? Sweet yet spicy ginger beer. 

Chard, Beet & Mushroom Stir-Fry

Our favorite in-season veggies -- beets, mushrooms, and chard -- come together in this quick stir-fry. Serve the garlicky mix over creamy polenta and top with fresh cilantro.

Cardamom Sidecar

A sweet sugar and cardamom rim is the key to this shaken cocktail. Be sure to use freshly squeezed lemon juice for the most flavor.
