This week's new recipes were all about holiday warmth and cheer. They were divided between breakfast goodies, like these simple yet delicious cream cheese "braids", and a gorgeous holiday breakfast wreath. There was a savory make-ahead brunch of sweet potato hash and eggs, and a spiced porridge of oats and fruit.

And then there were the festive drinks: Almond Joy milkshakes, spiked and boozy for grownups, and a colorful pomegranate soda that anyone can enjoy. And if you're planning ahead for New Year's, try this glittering pear margarita, rimmed with spiced sugar. These are fresh yet festive recipes — things to make your kitchen smell good and your guests feel happy and welcomed. From our kitchens to yours — enjoy.
