As a self-proclaimed anti-diet dietitian, Emilie Hebert goes for holiday recipes that are wholesome and crowd-pleasing — and that can come together in a snap. She recently stopped by Safeway® to pick up some key ingredients for some of her favorite things to serve when company comes calling. With Safeway for U™, Emilie can shop and take advantage of her personalized deals right in the app. Then, by choosing delivery or Drive Up & Go, she can get her order without waiting in long lines (or shlepping bags to her car).

In her recent haul, Emilie got two of her go-to ingredients for creating satisfying holiday treats on the fly: frozen tater tots and frozen pomegranate arils. The tater tots are the basis of a comforting casserole, while the pomegranate arils are a must for her holiday sangria and mocktails. Emilie also snagged some fresh Brussels sprouts, which she roasts with garlic and Parmesan for an easy, crowd-pleasing side dish.
