Stove-top potpourri kits. Cute gift idea: one orange, 1/2 c cranberries, 1 Tbs whole cloves, 3 sticks cinnamon, a bit of grated nutmeg. Instructions: "Quarter the orange, place all in a small saucepan filled with water and simmer on lowest setting. Refill water as needed."
Pioneer Woman Pecan Pie: With a store-bought crust very easy. With a standard crust there was excess filling and it took about an hour to bake. Very easy to make, and others said it was really good. I don't like pecan pie, so I'm not a good judge.
How clever! Just cut a cream cheese block on the diagonal to have the pieces to make a tree shape. Then add some bell pepper decorations and some pepper jelly (and Wheat Thins of course), and you have an awesomely cute appetizer!
