Apple Bistro Tart
Make the most of your time this holiday season with these quick and easy recipe ideas.

Maple Orange-Glazed Turkey Roast

This turkey roast blends light and dark meat -- but it's compact and carves easily into neat slices. Grill the meat to free up oven space for the turkey trimmings.

Currant Glaze for Turkey

Try our simple-to-make glaze for a turkey that looks beautiful and glossy. It's effortless and delicious.

Spinach-Stuffed Turkey Tenderloins

Asparagus Dijon

A simple three-ingredient mustard sauce makes this delicious side sing -- and it takes just 15 minutes to make.

Heavenly Mashed Potatoes

Mix these creamy spuds ahead of time, and then bake them just before dinner. With their smooth texture and bacon topping, you can even skip the gravy.

No-Fuss Sweet Potato Casserole

Raisins and a buttery pecan topping dress up sweet potatoes. Use real butter in this recipe to avoid sogginess.

This crisp spinach salad, tossed with a tart cranberry dressing, takes just 30 minutes to make.

Orange-Apple Waldorf Salad

For a festive touch, make this salad in a fancy mold. Or you can prepare it in a baking dish and cut it into squares before serving.

Brie with Chutney

Because bottled chutney is so well-spiced, it's the only embellishment a warm Brie appetizer needs.

Pumpkin Gingerbread Pie

This fresh dessert combines the main ingredients of two tried-and-true pie favorites for a luscious holiday treat.
