A small but comforting holiday dinner

As we continue through a holiday season of scaling back, many people are wondering how they can take the traditionally large meals and pare them back to a dinner for two, or three, or four at most. This Seared Duck with Lingonberry Sauce is a perfect solution, combining some of my favorite holiday flavors. Sweet and tart lingonberries, mashed potatoes with warming nutmeg, and succulent duck breast is a festive feast that can be scaled from a simple dinner for two to a dinner for four with ease. Get the recipe here.
