Christmas Gift Guide for Vegetarians

By Jacqueline Meldrum

Christmas shopping.

Love it or hate it, it has to be done. I usually know what I’m getting my friends and family pretty early on. Not this year. I have a few presents, but need to get my thinking hat on quickly. I find men the hardest to buy for.

My gift guide is for everyone, not just men, although there will be some gifts that will suit them. Some of the things in my gift guide I have tried or own and others I’m just lusting after. Everything of course is veggie friendly.

Holiday Spice Granola

By Sally Vargas

Holiday Spice Granola

This granola surpasses any you can buy at the store. It also doesn’t take a lot of effort, so making a weekly batch has become routine in our house.

I sometimes keep the granola plain, and other times, I add maple syrup and nuts. This holiday season, I’ve been making it cinnamon, ginger, and cloves for a subtle spiced flavor.

Give it as a gift or keep it all for yourself!

“Mille Feuille” (Napoleon) – Short and Sweet

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

This mille feuille, which I’m sure I pronounced perfectly in the video, is also referred to as a Napoleon, and is the easiest, “fancy” pastry I know. The technique for creating your “thousand leaves” is very simple, especially if you use frozen dough, which any sensible person should do.


Whether you use frozen or homemade dough, the key is to keep it flat. We do this by “docking” the dough, and pressing with another pan. I used a few layers of foil before placing the pan on top, to make sure it was in contact with the dough, and …read more

Giving Thanks

By makemendgrow

Turkey

The holidays have officially kicked off and I’m considering breaking out the maternity pants like Joey on friends. We’re gathered with family, the buzz of stories and laughter with the recordings of “Alice’s Restaurant” playing in the background. Dinner is cooking, and the house smells amazing. I can’t wait to eat everything. This year, I am grateful for my health, a good job, wonderful friends and family. Things are so good, and days like this where we talk about all that we’re grateful for remind me of how far I’ve come and how fortunate I am.

This year, we went …read more

It’s one of those appetizers that people always remember and request again and again. For me, that’s a sign of success.

Rosemary Potato Egg Bake

By erin Post in partnership with Frontier Co-op. See below for more details.
When it comes to holidays, I’ve always appreciated that Thanksgiving is on a Thursday. We usually get a four day weekend where we can just lounge around. As a result, it’s my favorite part of the holiday. Usually, we have a leisurely breakfast on Friday morning before heading out to cut down our Christmas tree. In fact, it was a tradition throughout my childhood and we’re now continuing with my child. This potato egg bake is the perfect day-after Thanksgiving breakfast. It’s hearty but not heavy and the cooking is …read more

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

By Sally Vargas

2016-11-28-stuffedtenderloin-3-2

Making stuffed pork tenderloin is easier than you may think and it’s a terrific party dish, especially around the holidays.

Here’s my trick: Instead of tying the stuffed tenderloin together with twine, just wrap it in bacon instead. It’s less demanding, and the bacon makes this an especially rich and flavorful meal. Plus everything is better with bacon, right?

This bacon-wrapped tenderloin seems fancy-ish, but is actually quite quick and easy. Roast a tray of potatoes in the oven at the same time, and dinner is all set.
