The best gifts are those from the heart, and the heart of the home is the kitchen! Here are some of my faves. The lemon curd takes only about 10 minutes to make. Just a few minutes to stir together the nut recipes, and not much longer to prepare the savory shortbreads, which are a welcome accompaniment to a great bottle of red wine. If you want to get a bit more involved, marshmallows really are easy! Here’s to you, yours, and a wonderful holiday season with family & friends.
