Amanda from Lemon Baby shares her tips and tricks for making edible holiday gifts. Whether you’re looking for quick and easy ideas or more gourmet, Amanda’s got you covered.
Today’s episode is all about how to make edible gifts for the holidays.
I chat with Amanda Gibson from Lemon Baby who holds a special 12 days of Christmas series on her blog each year, which includes plenty of edible gift inspiration.
It was clear to Amanda at a young age that she cared more about food than most. When she was twelve, her parents once came home to her wrapping shrimp in snow peas–something she saw in Martha Stewart’s Entertaining. A current college instructor, food writer, and former caterer, Amanda now writes from her home in Mobile, Alabama, on the Gulf Coast, where she lives with her husband, two children (S. and Lemon Baby), and Border collie.
Whether you always make edible gifts or you’re dipping your toes in for the first time, Amanda’s got you covered with simple gifts, gourmet gifts and much much more.
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
This week’s recipe of the week is my Oreo Cheesecake Balls. Full disclosure – I’m not normally an edible gift giver. I put it down to the profession. After cooking recipes year round for the blog the last thing I want to do is spend more time in the kitchen. But these oreo balls, these I can do. All you need is 3 ingredients and you’ll be on your way.
