My family loves to eat. Both my husband and I love to cook and invite friends and family over to test out old and new recipes. The Holidays are the perfect time to whip up some delicious meals or bake up some treats to share. If you have food lovers on your list, surprise them with a few of these treats.

Tomato Sauce.  Frankly, this gift is so delicious; you should get it for everyone on your list. Who doesn't love good homemade tomato sauce? Due Cellucci tomato sauces are all-natural, made only from real, whole food, and are hand made in small batches so that every jar tastes like your Grandmother's special recipe. Choose from traditional tomato sauce, vodka sauce and tomato basil sauce. When life gets busy, this sauce is not only the perfect time saver but it makes it easy to put a healthy meal on the table for your family and/or friends.  A portion of the proceeds from each jar of Due Cellucci will go to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  

Chocolates. A box of chocolates is always a hit. Epiphany Chocolates is dedicated to promoting women in small business and children's health and safety. With flavors such as Oreo Hunk, Party Girl, John Lemon, Queen B and more, there is sure to be the perfect bite for everyone on your list.

Popcorn. I love popcorn drizzled with melted butter. I also eat the entire bag of the caramel popcorn my Nana makes for Christmas-no I don't share it with anyone in my family. If you have a popcorn lover on your list, check out 479°'s Schoolyard Pop. 100 percent of the proceeds go to Urban Sprouts, a non-profit that plants edible gardens in urban public schools.

Olive Oil. Nudo, an olive grove in Italy, allows customers to "adopt" a tree in the grove (you can even pick out which section), and then receive a year's supply of olive oil from the tree you selected. Who doesn't need some quality olive oil, whether for cooking or to dip a crusty piece of Italian bread in?

Micro Greens. Every Holiday meal needs a nice salad to accompany it. Micro Green Kits come in a recycled steel box and contains a soilless growing medium, two full crops of seeds, a bamboo lid, and directions. The recipient of the kit will be sowing, sprouting, growing and harvesting their mini-field of salad in just 7-14 days. The veggie kit includes the following seeds: organic red acre cabbage, organic mini-carrots, and organic Tom Thumb peas.

I'm getting hungry writing this. Have fun shopping for the food lovers on your list and make sure you don't go shopping with an empty stomach.

What's on your wish list this year? Have you come across any new and unique food items while shopping?

I've just recently started using green tobasco sauce and I LOVE it. Regular tobasco is too spicy for me, but the green is just right AND it's tangy, which I just love!

It's not fancy or exotic, but it's yummy. :)

Those are neat ideas.  

I made homemade chocolate syrup and caramel sauce to give to some with other goodies as a "sundae making basket".  I canned some pasta sauce and put in a colander with some tortelini and alfredo for my brother and his wife.  Other goodies I made/canned to give out: Pear honey, Cinnamon bun popcorn, zucchini bread, biscotti.
