Edible Gift

8 Food Blog Links We Love

December 20, 2013

We've scoured the web, found our favorite food blog posts, and now we're bringing them right to your desktop. It’s hard work, but someone has to do it. 

Between friends, family, coworkers, and your favorite delivery guy, we're willing to bet you have a lot of gifts to hand out this year. We're also willing to bet you haven't gotten around to buying all those gifts yet. (Don't worry, the holidays snuck up on us this year too.) Instead of joining the masses at the mall this weekend, try your hand at edible gifts -- they're more personal and heartfelt than anything you could find in a store. Plus, you can make them from the safety of your own kitchen, far away from the crazy last-minute holiday shoppers.
