Lemon Rosemary Zucchini Bread

While this recipe isn’t necessarily Christmas-y, here I am making it making it as part of a Christmas Gift Basket. Not surprising, most of the things that I give for Christmas (besides The Cookies … capital T, capital C) are food or food related. But this recipe would work just as well in the late summer when zucchini and rosemary are at their peak. While it is sweet, it’s almost border-line savory as well, so might go well with soups and stews as well as eggs and bacon for breakfast.

Cranberry-Ginger-Red Onion Chutney

Not even 5 days past Halloween and I am already focusing on things to make for Thanksgiving. Every year I make a variation on the usually “cranberry sauce” and this year is no different.

And I thought I’d share that with you because even if for just a moment, it made me feel better. Slathered it with smokey, spicy mayonnaise and cojita cheese, so I guess it is Mexican-inspired. The goodness of summer.

Cranberry Almond Black Pepper Shortbread “Cookies”

Thought I would try something different for once. Savory cookies. Yeah, ok, most people would call savory cookies crackers, but seeing this is actually modified from one of my sweet shortbread recipes, I am sticking with cookies. And I guess they aren’t all savory — there are cranberries in there and a bit of sugar. But definitely more the Wine-and-cheese idea than coffee and sweets.
