Incorporate These Festive Flavors This Holiday Season

Preparing Eggnog for ChristmasIt could be said that one of the best things about the holiday spirit is the food, and with the holiday season getting closer by the day, it may be time to start breaking out your classic Christmastime recipes. 

While it is important to provide the classics you’ve been making for years, it may be time to start looking for new recipes to add to your holiday roster. Delicacies like homemade gingerbread, traditional eggnog, and even your very own peppermint, are all great items to spice up your holiday get-togethers. Thankfully, Partstown has gathered this incredibly helpful list of traditional holiday favorites to add to your kitchen this season. 


Gingerbread will be forever associated with Christmas thanks to the Gingerbread cookie. Although known for the cookie, gingerbread is also excellent in cakes and coffee, and almost everything in between. Gingerbread is a classic flavor that adds a little extra sense of “home for the holidays” that can be enjoyed by any and everyone.


Eggnog is just one of those holiday classics that you either love or hate, and there is really no in between. Although this is typically thought of as a beverage only, eggnog can be added to give intense flavor to pancakes, French toast, and many other items on the menu. Eggnog can even be used to flavor icing, which can add a little extra Christmas feel to an otherwise ordinary dessert.
