When it comes to holiday gift giving, it may not surprise you that I enjoy sharing my favorite foods (or food related gifts) with friends and family. Generally, I think most of us have more than enough possessions filling up our homes, so the idea of giving consumable gifts is very appealing to me. Giving an edible gift almost guarantees that it won’t sit on a shelf collecting dust.
There are a number of Scramble gems tucked away on the site that would be ideal for whipping up, putting in mason jars or decorative tins and giving as gifts to those you care about.These are some of my favorite edible holiday gift ideas: Peanut Butter Bites (Needs refrigeration) Molly’s Chocolate Chewies Quick Dill Pickles (Needs refrigeration) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Corn Muffins Fudgy Figgy Balls (Needs refrigeration) Quick and Spicy Cashews Chocolate...

It took me a few attempts, but I finally made the strata of my dreams. In case you aren’t familiar with it, strata is an Italian baked egg and bread dish. Recipe tester Alexandra Taylor said, “Even my spinach hating son ate a piece and gave it a thumbs-up.” This is a great dish to serve at a brunch, especially because you can make it in advance, but it also makes a nice change for a family dinner.

Many of us love our slow cookers, but even if you don’t own one, don’t let that stop you from making pulled pork sandwiches. It turns out that a Dutch oven and an oven set to 300 degrees make a fantastic stand in for a slow cooker. But if you have one, by all means, use it! If it didn’t taste so darned awesome, I would say the best part of slow roasting this herb-infused meat is that the house smells heavenly all day.Pulled Pork Sandwiches Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 4 hours Total Time: 4 hours and 15 minutes 1 tsp. chili powder 1 tsp. garlic powder 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon 3/4 tsp. ground cumin 3/4 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. allspice 3 lbs. boneless pork loin roast, or use pork butt or shoulder 3 sweet yellow onions such as Vidalia or Walla Walla, halved top to bottom and thinly sliced 12 small soft whole wheat rolls or buns (use wheat/gluten-free if needed), sliced open 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, for serving (optional) Preheat the oven to 300...
