The Holidays are coming and some people like to start buying gifts several months in advance.  We all have on our list some family members or friends that have everything.  Why not surprise them this year with homemade gifts especially if it’s pretty to look at and delectable to eat.

Gourmet Gifts, 100 Delicious Recipes for Every Occasion to Make Yourself and Wrap with Style, has been written by longtime Martha’s Vineyard cooking teacher and food writer Dinah Corley.  In this book the readers will learn how to cook and wrap their gifts with love.
