When it's completely frigid outside, nothing is more inviting to guests than entering a heated home filled with the scent of mulled wine. Possibly easier to pull together than any punch, mulled wine consists of apple cider, spices, red wine, orange peel and juice, and . . . this particular recipe calls for a secret ingredient.

We've all got someone (or two or three . . .) on our gift list who rocks to their own special beat. So this holiday season, treat them to something spectacular that's easy on the eyes, music to their ears, and perfectly in tune with their personal sense of style.
Not only do Beats Solo HD headphones deliver the superior sound Beats by Dr. Dre products are famous for, but they also look as good as they sound — drenched in colors that are red like a heart, teal like Miami, white like snow, and lots more.
With its bright red color, there is a common misconception that grenadine, the syrup used to flavor many cocktails, is made with cherries. The thick, sweet liquid is actually made with pomegranate juice (the word grenadine is derived from the French word for pomegranate, grenade).
When I realized that the sweetener was very simple to make, I decided to whip up a batch and present it to my sister, who enjoys the occasional "cherry" coke. Homemade grenadine is a great hostess gift, especially for someone who is into mixing cocktails or who has a penchant for Shirley Temples. To look at the incredibly easy recipe, read more
As a judge on Top Chef, you know Gail Simmons has great taste in food. But the culinary expert, TV personality, and Food & Wine special projects director also happens to have great taste in holiday gift picks, too. She gave us the lowdown on what she's really coveting this year. Here's what's at the top of her wish list.
The Gramercy Tavern Cookbook
"After years of work on this project, chef Michael Anthony and Danny Meyer have published The Gramercy Tavern Cookbook ($30, originally $50), one of the most beautiful cookbooks I’ve seen in years. It's big and glossy and drool-worthy, and I want it!"

10. Toasted Nuts
Roasted chestnuts and spiced nuts make a house smell extraordinarily Christmasy. Those who live (or visit) in New York City during the Winter know it's near imposible to resist picking up a bag of warm, cinnamon-coated nuts on the street. The scent wafts through the cold air.
9. Peak-Season Citrus Fruit
Kumquats, oranges, grapefruit, and other citrus fruit finally hit their peak season. We're talking the juiciest, most unctuous stuff. Guilty of eating them one after the other until your mouth is covered in canker sores? Join the club.
8. Holiday Ham
It's not a Christmas party unless there's a huge ham to carve and make mini Parker House roll sandwiches out of.
Poached eggs seem so fancy, but foxeslovelemons shares a microwaveable version that any home cook can crack.
if you work in an office or are otherwise away from a stove and saucepan for the day, a poached egg really isn't in the cards for you. Unless. . . you have access to a microwave, a mug, a spoon and a napkin. Now, a poached egg really is in the cards for you. No longer will you be eating sad bowls of last night's leftover veggies and rice. Now, you'll be eating a bowl of veggies and rice with a poached egg.
