Ring in the New Year

Featured Recipe: Standing Rib-Roast

Standing Rib Roast

Nothing says “the holidays” like a big, juicy roast beef. The standing rib roast is the king of all roast beasts. You start it off very hot to seal in all the juices, and then slow roast it so that you get a nice large patch of medium-rare in the middle. There is an optional pan-gravy attached to this recipe, but it’s certainly not essential because this roast is so juicy and tender. If you are hosting a smaller get together, no need to worry: we have a recipe for a Standing Rib-Roast for 6.

Brillat Savarin

Brillat Savarin

Imported from Normandy, France, this decadent triple-crème is sure to please. Rich, creamy and slightly sweet, it is perfect for any course, especially dessert. Best served with ripe fruit and crusty bread (and a little honey, if you dare).

Sweet Slices

Night On The Town

Did you know Nugget now sells ten of our fabulous layer cakes by the slice? Big enough to share, these cake slices alternate layers of spongy cake with decadent fillings, covered in creamy icing. For a festive New Year’s Eve celebration, try the Night on the Town Cake, with alternating layers of white and chocolate cake with vanilla and chocolate buttercream and rich ganache, iced with vanilla buttercream.

Holiday Eating Survival Guide

The bounty begins at Thanksgiving and relentlessly persists into January – office parties, family gatherings and holiday cocktail parties galore. Keep your weight steady and at the same time enjoy the festivities of the season with this no-stress holiday eating guide.

Here are a few survival tips:

  1. Breakfast is a must. Eat a solid breakfast that includes some protein and fiber — oatmeal, nuts and yogurt — that will keep you feeling satisfied. Skipping meals (in particular breakfast) may lead to overeating later in the day along with the faulty rationalization that you “deserve” to indulge.
  2. Get your workout in early rather than late. A morning workout helps you stay on a schedule and you’re less apt to miss a workout. Afternoon or early evening workouts plans quickly fade when a holiday gathering is on tap.
  3. Visualize the spread. Here are eating strategies at various types of holiday affairs:
    • Sit-down dinners: Think of your dinner plate as a clock and make sure you serve yourself “45 minutes” of vegetables, fruit salad and whole grains and reserve “15 minutes” for meats and foods with heavy sauces.
    • Buffet tables: Use the sample technique to avoid the typical five-pound buffet plate. Try just a dab — you can always go back for more.
    • Cocktail parties: Keep your distance from the appetizers to minimize mindless nibbling. And when you make a selection, go for items less pedestrian — you can get cheese and crackers any time of year, but sampling a special holiday cookie or appetizer keeps eating festive.
