Gift Ideas for the Food Lovers On Your List

I don't want to gloat, but I am in fact nearly done with all my holiday shopping. Crazy I know.

However, if you are still hunting for gifts for the food lovers on your list I have a few suggestions.

Festive Cranberry Moscow Mule

It was kismet. First, our favorite local bartender gives us a copper mug. Then, in this month's Degustabox we get two cans of Bruce Cost Ginger Beer. You know where I'm going with this right? Yeah, how could we not make a Moscow Mule? Fate was seeming to demand it.

Roasted Butternut Squash with Balsamic Drizzle

Sometimes it's the little touches that make a simple recipe something special. An extra splash of a special sauce or fresh herbs sprinkled on top don't just add to the presentation, they lend an important pop of flavor. In this case, a last minute hearty drizzle of Ponti Glaze with balsamic vinegar of Modena from this month's Degustabox elevated a basic roasted butternut squash recipe to a dish worthy of appearing at upcoming holiday feasts.

Quinoa, Apple and Kale Stuffed Delicata Squash

There are a lot of wonderful cool weather squash varieties from the most commonly known like butternut and acorn to lesser know ones like kabocha. Among the lesser known, but incredibly delicious and versatile, is the delicata squash. It’s often called the “sweet potato squash” for its mild, brown sugar flavor. It’s a good source of beta-carotene and vitamin C.
