Get cooking in your Crestleigh apartment this winter!

Warm your home with these delightful winter meal ideas. With the amount of space and helpful features offered in your Crestleigh apartment, it’ll be a snap. If you’re craving something green and nutritious, or you’re looking to indulge a little, you’ll find a holiday recipe below that you will want to try… 

Home Baked Bread

A fresh-from-the-oven loaf will fill your home with pleasant smells and a warmth that will fog your windows. There’s plenty of space on your upgraded counters to knead the dough, or you can sit with a child or partner at the eat-in kitchen table and let them take a turn. It might be hard work, but there are few simple joys as wholesome as making batch of homemade bread. Try a loaf with pumpkin, sweet potatoes, or squash as an ode to the winter season.

Salty and Savory

Charcuterie is a classic party food, providing a variety of flavors for people with varying tastes. But even if it’s just for you, a selection of cured and smoked meats, delicately cut, can be absolutely mouth-watering. Pull a serving plate from your maple cabinets and lay out a selection of classic Italian meats: soppressata and prosciutto, pepperoni or salami, and maybe mortadella. Or, you can go for a Spanish spin, with chorizo and jamón serrano.

Healthy Nibbles

Crudités, another dish associated with parties, actually makes a great snack for home. After weeks of sugary cookies and elaborate meals with tons of clean up, it’s nice to have something quick, easy, and healthy to munch on. Chop carrots, celery, and broccoli into bite-sized sticks. Add cherry tomatoes and other finger foods. And if your kids can’t stand plain vegetables, pair the crunchy fresh sticks with a creamy dip.

Be a Little Cheesy

Fondue is a perfect winter dish. Gather around a steaming hot pot of cheesy goodness with friends and family. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a fondue pot or any premium appliances to create delicious fondue. Use a wide ceramic pot, bowl, or other lipped dish in the oven to create irresistible, melty fondue. Cheddar, gouda, brie, and fontina are common cheese types for fondue, and they all melt easily. And there’s no need to worry about sticky spills, because your ceramic tile floors can stand up to almost anything.

A comfortably outfitted Crestleigh apartment may be just what you need to get cooking this holiday season. Nothing is more motivating in the kitchen than empty counter space and premium appliances. To see it for yourself, take a tour today.
