What Are Some Tasty Yet Non-Sweet Food Gifts?

Good Questions

Q: I've just begun dating someone new and his birthday is coming up! I want to give him something small since we haven't been together long, but I wanted to add in a homemade treat to make it more special. The catch is that he doesn't like sweets! I'm at a loss — does anyone know of a giftable food that isn't sweet?

Editor: Emily, sure! What about a batch of breakfast granola? Or some DIY potato chips? You could also try this recipe for chips with rosemary, or these spicy plantain chips.

Readers, any creative ideas for Emily?
