What Ellen’s Lovin’
Giving the gift of artisan with love
Edible gifts and experiences is what I am gifting this season to the people that I love.
Things like wine, Constance Popp chocolates, great lotion from Tiber River, honey from Wendell Estate, local pottery or art and even delicious dinners at my house.
What I enjoy including is a beautiful card from a local artist. I always have a stash of beautiful blank cards from local artists that takes a gift from good to great. It’s a wonderful added touch and I really try to match the card to the persons personality, interests or decor. Of course, it also includes a heartfelt message inside.
What Jenn’s Lovin’
It’s such an easy to make item that can be as simple or elaborate as you have time. Always a crowd pleaser, endless flavour combinations and can be made without any type of fancy appliance.
My go-to item for gatherings, entertaining or personal snacking this season is Claire Tansey’s Kettle Corn. The recipe is in her latest cookbook, Uncomplicated (also a great hostess gift). I’m also looking forward to trying out this
Sweet & Spicy Cinnamon Kettle Corn combo shared by food expert Andrea Buckett!
What Lynn’s Lovin’
The days are short, and the evenings are so long in December. This is time of year that I love spending time in the kitchen preparing all my favorite comfort foods – a big bowl of steaming stew, a delicious hearty soup, homey casseroles, and yummy baked desserts. Here are a couple of my favorite recipes to try in December:
