9 Recipes for a Luxurious New Year’s at Home

This year, many of us will be home for the New Year’s holiday—but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate with a big, decadent, over-the-top meal. We collected our favorite “treat yourself” recipes to ring in the new year with style. So get ready to make reservations chez toi—black tie optional.

shrimp dip

1. Easy Baked Shrimp Dip

A melty, decadent dip kicks off your meal, with special-occasion worthy seafood. Pair this piping hot dip with crudité, pita chips, or crusty baguette to whet your appetite and get the party started.

Grilled Romaine with Pine Nut Vinaigrette

2. Grilled Romaine With Pine Nut Vinaigrette

This isn’t your typical salad. Instead, we grill romaine for a complex flavor and texture, then top it off with a lovely pine nut vinaigrette. Your typical caesar salad won’t know what hit it.

Chattanooga whiskey glazed filet mignon sits in a Lodge Chef Collection 8 Inch Skillet on a modern kitchen countertop

3. Chattanooga Whiskey Glazed Filet Mignon

Nothing says “fancy” quite like a filet. We glaze ours in locally-distilled whiskey at the last minute for a bit of fireworks (literally) and for a sweet, not-so-subtle glaze.

Grilled lobster tails made in a Blacklock 65 Triple Seasoned Grill Pan

4. Grilled Lobster Tails With Lemon Garlic Butter

Lobster is the height of sophisticated eating, and it’s best when done simply. We grill ours and pair it with a class lemon garlic butter for a savory treat that’s worth waiting all year for.

lamb with herb butter

5. Leg of Lamb With Herb Butter

Not only is this recipe delicious, it’s an absolute show-stopper in the pan. We lather the leg in herby butter for a flavor (and pan sauce) that can’t be beat.

Mushroom and White Wine Risotto

6. Mushroom and White Wine Risotto

Risotto is the perfect side or vegetarian main when you’re craving pasta and willing to put in the extra time for something creamy and dreamy. Ours is topped off with a healthy handful of parm—oh yeah.

Skillet Scalloped Potatoes

7. Skillet Scalloped Potatoes

Oven-baked potatoes just got a makeover. This beautiful scalloped potato recipe delivers cheese, ‘taters, and cream—a decadent side dish that will make you want to get all dressed up.

Gooey Chocolate Skillets

8. Gooey Chocolate Skillets

Chocolate is our favorite indulgence. But ooey gooey chocolate? That’s for very special days. These individual skillets mean you don’t have to share, and that’s the biggest treat of all.

Red Velvet Cake

9. Red Velvet Cake

Velvet isn’t just for dressing up—in fact, it’s best of all when served up for dessert. A classic red velvet cake delivers over-the-top flavor, plus a beautiful festive hue that’ll make a meal feel extra special.
