Forest Green Sweater / Large Oval Platter / Salad Bowl / Bamboo Dinner Plates / Serving Set

Developing recipes is one of my favorite things to do for you on The Lush List. Bringing you new ideas that you’ll love always inspires me. I’ve partnered again today with Marie’s Dressing to bring you two more recipes perfect for the holidays. Rosemary Crusted Balsamic Beef Tenderloin and Pear and Arugula Salad with Garlic Parmesan Dressing.

I’ll be serving this fabulous tenderloin for one of our family Christmas dinners. It is so simple but so delicious. Who doesn’t want a recipe that literally only takes five minutes of prep during the holidays?!?!  This recipe is so good, you’ll serve it again and again.

I simply coated a high quality beef tenderloin from our favorite meat market with Marie’s Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing. I added a generous amount of fresh cracked black pepper, 4 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh rosemary and a sprinkle of kosher salt. No marinating necessary.

Arugula is truly my favorite green. I love it on everything from burgers to pizza as well as the main ingredient in a fabulous salad. I have added my favorite winter fruit, Bartlett pears and dried cranberries for a winter flair. Tossed gently with Marie’s garlic Parmesan dressing and you have the perfect holiday salad.

I hope you’ll try these quick and delicious recipes this holiday season.  You can locate Marie’s Dressing nearest you here.

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
