Cookie Cutter Ornaments: Nothing says I'm into Christmas and baking like these. I'm sure this would make a lovely gift.
Recycled Soda Christmas Card: Another way to reuse food containers! These are so pretty!
Chocolate Cough Syrup: Well, lot's of people get sick around the holidays. When this is finally developed, it might make some of those sad folks feel just a little bit better. What a strange thing to develop though. Well, those Brits do like their warm beverages! Haha.

Cookie Plate Comic: So true in so many ways. Be careful with your cookie plates!
Brie: My family really likes to do antipasti plates before holiday dinners. David Lebovitz has an awesome discussion about different kinds of brie and I think it's well worth a read. Of course, nothing will ever beat the brie I had in Paris on a baguette sandwich that was just like awesome cheese butter. But TJ's has some pretty good ones.
(awesome looking restorative post-holiday soup recipe here)
Shot Pint: Not only would this make a great gift, it might help everyone through these stressful holiday days. Know a non-drinker? Do shots of soda! Or egg nog? Okay, that sounds gross. Anyway, I think this looks pretty cool.
Dear Jewish Friends, Read This: Okay, so it's a stereotype, but it's a tasty one!
I'm also loving: snacky shopping for aforementioned antipasti plate; late night beers with my long lost friend Nate; squeezing in as many tasty meals as possible with Corey before she leaves the US; giving cookies to all my friends; bake day in general; Sarah's lemon bars like whoa!; Kirsten's cookies; my library always having so many goodies for all us student workers; the anticipation of AIM (Asian, Italian, Mexican) meals at my parents house; awesome congratulatory drinks from Lisa; happy hours all over the place; impromptu brown rice bowl dinners; spiced drinks of every kind.
What are you loving this week?
