Planning a whole holiday feast can be a bit overwhelming, and there’s no perfect menu out there that works for everyone. Luckily, Food52 has put together a bangin’ holiday meal planner, and it is deliciously customisable.

Instead of having you fill out a survey and then spitting out one option for each category, this planner lets you pick however many dishes you need for each and every course. Need a vegetarian option and a succulent beef roast? No problem. Does your family live for vegetable based sides? Go wild with them. Just click the categories you need filled, and browse through a whole bunch of applicable recipes. Save as many as you want, and Food52 will compile each and every recipe you might need, from pre-present-unwrapping breakfast to after-dinner drinks. They will also include handy tips and substitutions. (For example: If you want to make tasty glazed carrots, but don’t have access to pomegranate molasses, you can add two teaspoons of balsamic vinegar halfway through the cooking time.) You can then bookmark the result, email the link or print out a packet of (paper!) recipe cards.
