Turn your Grocery List into Santa’s List!

Sarabeth preserves

Give the gift of Brunch! Love these Sarabeth preserves!

Every year, I feel like my holiday to-do list keeps getting longer. Between baking holiday treats, visiting with friends and family, packing for my trip home, and buying gifts, I find that December just flies by!

This year I realized I could add a lot of gifts to my grocery list. After all, grocery shopping is perfect for the food and drink lovers on your list!  Here are some of my ideas:

Wrap these delicious PB&J chocolate bars in scrapbook paper for a festive stocking stuffer!

For a Stocking Stuffer Idea: Take a chocolate bar (our PB&J dark chocolate bars are fantastic!) and wrap it in scrapbook paper for a festive touch!

For the budding foodie: Teach kids to grow their own food with the Back to the Roots mushroom garden.  In just a couple of weeks, they’ll have their own pearl oyster mushrooms to enjoy.

Festive Holiday Drinks

Champagne

For a holiday party, you can't go wrong with Champagne!

Can you believe we’re already a week into December? With the holiday season already upon us, I’m sure you’ll be serving (and enjoying!) a drink or two.

When I have a party, I always have a favorite red and white wine on hand, a bottle of bubbly, and one signature cocktail and mocktail. I also love to have apple cider and eggnog on hand because the taste and smell just evokes memories of the holiday.

For cocktails, I loved these ones developed by Tom Smith of Union Square Wines: The Gingered Apple and The Kentucky Toddy. They were perfect for Thanksgiving and are still wonderful now in the colder months.

Here are a few more beverages that are sure to make you the toast of the party! Continue reading

I love the holiday season.  After all, it’s the season for giving and I love baking sweet treats to give away!

The cookie swap is one of my favorite reasons to get-together. Whether it’s with friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors, it’s a great excuse to bake my favorite cookies and come home with so much more!

When we asked on our Facebook page for our fans’ favorite cookie recipes, one fan mentioned Jam Thumbprints (a classic). I always bake sugar cookies for my nieces and nephews because they love all the decorations (like sprinkles) I add to them.

Here are 5 more simple and delicious cookie ideas for your holiday cookie swap: Continue reading
