Anise Seed Christmas Cookie Recipes

Need new Christmas cookie recipes or dessert recipes? These are such easy Christmas cookies and they are AMAZING!  

This year, think outside of the sugar-cookie cutter and throw an unexpected ingredient into the mix: anise seeds.

My family and I have made these anise seed Christmas cookies every year for as long as I can remember (there are the cutest pictures of me decorating them when I was little), and they’re still my favorite cookies of all time. I swear, nothing is better!

Kale & Quinoa Salad with Toasted Almonds Recipe

This kale quinoa salad with a honey mustard dressing from HelloFresh is one of my all-time favorites!

I tried HelloFresh for the first time last fall and absolutely LOVED it. My three veggie-friendly recipes came packed in a big box full of fresh ingredients, each in a small carton that tucks neatly into the fridge. While it’s billed as easy, these meals still took me way longer to prepare than something I’d usually make for myself on a weeknight. BUT with each recipe I learned some new skills (like making my own dressing from scratch) and I found a few favorites that I’ve made over and over since my first box—this salad is one of them!

It’s light and fresh for summer but still filling and loaded with super foods that you can feel good about. I live for honey mustard and this homemade dressing is easy and delicious. It’s also super easy to customize (I use shaved parmesan over feta, and you could use different nuts or dried fruit to switch it up).

I’ve made this salad so many times since my last HelloFresh box (meal prep it for a week of lunches or serve it for a night in with friends) that I wanted to share the recipe with you! Hopefully it’ll become one of your favorites too.
