OK, you’ve got half an hour to find a last-second gift for your picky Aunt Frieda, weird cousin Pete or annoying boss, Rufus. Don’t freak out and scout what’s left at the mall or pray Amazon’s drones are hovering overhead like Santa’s sleigh. That’s crazy talk. The only sensible thing to do is to grab your spatula and make something delicious, healthy and fast (the videos will walk you through each simple step). Can’t handle more cooking? Head to your local bookstore and pick something inspiring to get Aunt Frieda’s 2017 started right. She’ll thank you for it—and you’ll be a holiday superhero.
Holiday Treats to Serve Up
Chocolate, Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Energy Balls
Mix up some chocolate-pumpkin energy treats, nestle them on a pretty tea towel inside an attractive gift box and secure it with a big bow.
Golden Garlic Hummus
Whip up a double batch of hummus, transfer to a Ball jar, wrap in colored cellophane and tie with raffia. Pair with olive oil, cheese, or herb-infused crackers.
