This week's recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen

December 9, 2010 |  6:25 pm

All recipes that appear in the L.A. Times' weekly Food section are tested and perfected in our Test Kitchen before they're deemed fit to print. (That means you don't have to worry about a trial run before serving one of our recipes to company.) Rest assured, they should work the first time out of the gate.

Most of the recipes in this week's section were adapted from today's story about a baker's dozen worth of cookbooks to give -- and receive -- this holiday season.

If you try one of our recipes, please let us know about it and take a picture so we can use it on the Daily Dish blog. Upload your photos here.
