Cara’s Cucina Holiday Gifts

Who said you had to battle the mall parking lots to get those last-minute holiday gifts? Your best party pleasing options are right in the kitchen!

Cara Di Falco of Cara’s Cucina is here with #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino to give you some easy and delicious ideas to bring to your next #HipHolidays bash:

1) Cardamom Spiced Crumb Cake

Cardamom is an under-used yet oh-so-flavorable spice that screams “holiday!” As a bonus gift, include a pan that your guest can keep. We suggest something from the Gotham Steel collection, a #HipHolidays 2017 pick.

2) Homemade Granola

For those that are sticking to their healthy diets throughout the holidays (more power to them!), homemade granola is a perfect guilt-free snack. Put it in a seasonal mason jar to give it an extra festive flair!

3) Aunt Linda’s Anisette Cookies

This Italian favorite is a holiday staple that is sure to wow any crowd!

4) Marinara Sauce

Who doesn’t love a dish of al dente pasta with some fresh tomato sauce (or gravy, depending on which side of the debate you are on)?! Your hosts will be moved by this gift from the heart.
