With the luxury of this long weekend stretching before me, I'm thinking of settling in at my kitchen table and getting started on a few projects for the holidays. Special homemade gifts like bottles of infused liquor and small tins of flavored salt take a little extra time to reach delectable perfection, and for this very reason, they're always some of my favorite things to wrap up and give to friends. Care to join me?

Are you starting any homemade holiday gifts this weekend? What are you working on?
