12 Days of Christmas: Day 2
(Dec 14)
It has been brought to our attention that the 12 Days of Christmas actually begins on December 25 and progresses forward to January 5. So we'd like to propose that our 12 Days of Christmas is an alternate reality 12 Days, like the upside-down in Stranger Things.
Today: Stocking Stuffers for under $6. Where else but in the Upside-Down 12 Days will you find chocolate Swiss Army Knives, Swedish Dala Horse gummies, Marzipan Pigs, Bavarian candies by Hermann the German, and a cheese wedge with little chocolate mice inside? And there's more. All the details are right here.
 

INCREASE YOUR HOLIDAY MEAT'S SPECIALNESS BY 50%*

Impress everyone when you place your own homemade compound butter alongside your prime rib.
*yes, that's completely scientific
A compound butter is simple, but its flavor combinations are endless. You make it with softened (generally unsalted) butter to which you add savory ingredients or, sometimes, sweet thangs. Whip them up; stiffen the compound butter (most often in the freezer); then add a small knob to bunches of foods.
Go here for 10 recipes for compound butters.
