The Gift of Food

My most recent blog post listed some fun gift ideas for foodies. I made a note at the end though, that my ultimate favorite gift to give anyone interested in food is a well-thought-out, home cooked meal. I have listed some seasonal recipes that are not particularly hard, but that always seem to impress. I hope at least some of these inspire you to give the gift of food this season!
