Gifts from the Kitchen

Prepared in your own kitchen, sweet and savory treats always make memorable holiday gifts, and they're all the more special because you created them yourself.

Here we offer some delicious recipes that are perfect for gift giving, including goat cheese marinated in herbs and olive oil, and mixed nuts seasoned with fresh rosemary and aromatic spices. For something sweet, bake buttery lemon zest shortbread or loaves of fragrant orange bread; both showcase winter citrus at its best.

And get the kids involved, too! They'll love to lend a hand with the nutty jumbles and the jolly cookie jar, which make lovely presents for a favorite teacher.
