I am of the solid opinion that there is no dish that an egg will not make better. Apparently, Lara Ferroni thinks so too — a girl after my own heart. Her latest book is the aptly named Put An Egg On It, and in it, she offers up ideas for everything from egg-topped breakfast bowls to maple meringue doughnut holes (yup, you read that right). Fellow egg-lovers, you're going to want this one on your holiday gift list.
If you're looking for a way to repurpose your turkey beyond round two at the buffet, might I suggest a (slightly over the top) Kentucky "Hot Brown"? Normally I make this open-faced sandwich as part of my Derby day spread, but the Southern specialty also makes a perfect reprieve from Thanksgiving casserole overkill.
One pretty tea towel: this is the simplest, easiest gift for a cook who loves her kitchen. There's a wealth of beautiful tea towels, napkins, and table linens in today's design-saturated world, so choosing just a handful of favorites was hard. We managed to narrow it down to a glam tea towel calendar, neon-trimmed napkins, and a splurgy tablecloth to warm up the kitchen in wintertime.
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?

We all have that one person on our shopping list — the cook or host who seems to have everything. Well, there is an easy pleaser for all of these well-stocked folks: One big beautiful bowl.
Everyone can use just one more lovely serving bowl. From holding fruit to serving salads, pastas, vegetables, and other main dishes, a beautiful bowl will never go unused. It really is a no-fail gift. Here are ten examples that made us swoon. Any one of them would find a warm welcome in our kitchens!
Pecan pie is one of the first things we head for when it comes time to hit the Thanksgiving dessert table. This nut-filled classic is the very definition of ooey-gooey decadence, and always has been. Our version is just as rich and sugary as ever, but with one small change: we ditched the corn syrup.
