More Quick and Inexpensive DIY Food Gifts!

Written by Sarah. Posted in DIY, gift, holiday

Last week I shared one of my favorite gifts to make, the hot chocolate mug. I take gift giving very seriously but I have a limited budget  so DIY food gifts are my go-to. When it comes to giving food, you can’t lose and if you’re willing to put in a little bit of time, you’ll save a few dollars.

I’m sure there are still a few of us scrambling for last-minute gifts (as we decide those sweaters will be given Christmas 2014) so here are a few options for DIY food gifts.

food gifts

1. Homemade Extracts
2. Liquor Infusions
3. Cookie Ingredient Mason Jars
4. Chai Mix

A good rule of thumb is that anything in a mason jar makes a good gift.

What mason jar gifts do you give?

The Burgerlution

Written by Sarah. Posted in blog spotlight, life, new york city

Vegetarians, I apologize. This post is about the pure carnivorous deliciousness of the American dietary staple: The Hamburger. I promised I would tell you what I was up to, this is it.

Recently, Jon and I have been on a quest to find the most delicious burgers in the New York City area. I’ve mentioned his project before but we’ve come a long way over the past few months. Jon and I are making a documentary about the evolution of the hamburger and it’s called The Burgerlution. He’s writing a really fun blog about all of the burgers he’s been trying out.  We spend a lot of time eating burgers these days and I think I’ve become a bit of a burger snob!

Last week we went to Bill’s Bar and Burger where we met with the Chef, tried some yummy cheeseburgers and also got to snag an interview with George Motz. He’s a really cool guy that also made a movie about burgers!

Here we are in action:

This weekend we’ll be shooting even more exciting stuff for the film. I’m having such a good time making this movie. There is a whole world of special hamburger foodies out there and it’s really cool to meet them and learn things about hamburgers that had never crossed my mind when I was chowing down on a Happy Meal back in the day. Not only am I proud to be involved in the project but it is really great to be working side-by-side with someone I trust and understand. It makes the whole process feel like less work and a lot more love.

The film will be premiering in May! I’ll update you closer to the event so you can all come out and sink your teeth into a juicy film (I hope I never write another pun on this blog). Until then, check out the film’s blog The Burgerlution to see some of the other places we’ve visited or follow us on twitter @TheBurgerlution!
