What are your favorite ways to Eat, Drink, Be Merry this holiday season?

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it can be hard to simply relax and savor the many joys of the season.  To that end, my friends at Udi’s are giving away 125 holiday prize packs and hundreds of free product coupons.  To enter, all you have to do is tell them your favorite ways to “Eat, Drink, & Be Merry” this holiday season.

To get things started, I am sharing a few of my favorite ways to do the same.  For those who have followed me over several holiday seasons, you know that I like to give the gift of food. It’s like giving a little piece of yourself, and these thoughtful gifts are easy, economical and won’t be relegated to a closet or out-of-the-way shelf!  For a mini gift guide, I have rounded up a handful of my favorite items–recipes that my family enjoys and that I’ve shared with friends and extended family over the years.

What are some of your favorite gifts to give this time of year?  After you contemplate the options, pop over to Udi’s Gluten Free and quickly tell them your favorite seasonal treats, drinks, and ways to celebrate the holidays for the chance to win some really great prizes.  (I know, I taste tested them!)

    I make your salted hot fudge sauce every year for hostess, teacher gifts, and more. It is ALWAYS a major hit. And it adds a little more merry to my Christmas as it doesn’t take long to make and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either!
