At Lisa Hellman’s family home in upstate New York, Christmas is the most important holiday of the year–so much so that we featured her elegant, nature-inspired decor in our December issue. She decks the halls with lots of greens and special festive ornaments. She also cooks up homemade treats with her daughter to package as gifts for neighbors and other friends.
Here are three of her favorite recipes for you to make for your friends and family, too:
Granola (Note: Lisa recommends adding macadamia nuts to this recipe.)
Package your homemade goodies in jam or Mason jars. Lisa and her daughter adorn the containers with raffia, pine cones and jingle bells.
What are your favorite homemade holiday treats to give or receive? Tell us in the comments below.
