Happy December! Each year, it seems as though Thanksgiving and the holiday season continuously leave our mouths watering for warm comfort food. Here are a couple of our designer's favorite dishes to make during the cold weather months. Enjoy!


This recipe from Jenia is for a delicious Turkey Meatball Soup:

You will need:

  • 1 package ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 potatoes
  • ½ onion
  • 2-3 long carrots
  • scallions
  • bay leaf
  • salt and pepper 



1. Boil some water in a pan.

2. Put the ground turkey into a bowl and break an egg over it. Add salt and pepper. Mix everything together until the mixture is uniform.

3. Start rolling the meat into balls and once the water is boiling, put them into the water. Have this going on a small-medium fire.

4. As the meatballs are boiling, peal and cut the potatoes, carrots and onion. Add the vegetables to the meatballs after they have been boiling for 20-30 mins.

5. After another 15 minutes, add the bay leaf (3-5 leaves), salt and pepper as necessary.

6. Boil for another 10 minutes and it’s done!

*Serve the soup in a bowl, adding minced scallions for each portion. Best eaten with a piece of toasted bread and your favorite cheese!


Next, one of Rachel's favorites during the holiday season: Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash 

 You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 1/2 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese



1. In a large bowl, combine the parsley, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Add squash and toss to coat.

2. Transfer to an ungreased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until squash is just tender.
