Christmas is only a week away, which can only mean one thing: it's time to finalize your holiday menu! Whether you're throwing a swanky soirée or just sitting down with close family, on a tight budget or going gourmet, it's easier than ever feast worth remembering. Why? Because Food has all of the recipes you need from appetizer to dessert. Read on for endless ideas that will make your mouth water. Want more from Food?

The Finest Finger Food
Sometimes, the appetizers and hors d'oeuvres at a party are so good that we could subsist on them alone! Our food experts have concocted recipes that range from traditional and decadent (Pigs in a Blanket, Mini Quiches) to vegan-friendly (but who doesn't love Bruschetta and Olive Tapenade?) Start here for the ultimate holiday spread!

Roast with the Most
It's entrée time, which means that you need to pack a big punch in both presentation and flavor. Not a problem! Make a Perfect Roast Beef or try a succulent Roast Duck. Last-minute? Try one of these Five-Ingredient Holiday Entrees. Your guests won't have to know how easy they were to prepare!

The Sweet Stuff
Ah, dessert, we can never resist you. For Christmas, the Buche de Noel is fairly essential, but not all of us have that kind of baking finesse. Ergo, easy Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries. Make White Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies using store-bought cookie dough, or more ambitious types may go for Crockpot Pumpkin Pie Pudding. No matter which desserts you choose, they'll all be crowd-pleasers!

Lovely Libations
Not to be uncouth ... but let's drink! (It is part of being merry, after all.) If you're expecting lots of party-goers, go for a punch, but if you've got the time, a handcrafted cocktail like this minty Holiday Hopper is worth the extra effort. For an easy sipper with an elegant feel, try a Poinsettia--champagne, Cointreau, cranberry, and you're set!
