Be Jolly

Cheers to the Season of Giving!

We are taking on December in full stride here at EFP and VPI. With the holidays approaching and Thanksgiving already behind us, is it just me, or do you feel something special in the air too?

If you’re anything like me, trying to find that “perfect gift” for everyone can be rather stressful. The search for special somethings for the special people in my life will continue until the absolute last minute. Yup, I’m the person that is still picking up things every December 24th.



The gifts that mean the most to me are often simple, and made with love. In my opinion, there is nothing better than receiving a gift someone made themselves, especially for you.

Keeping this in mind, (along with my new monthly rent)… I think I know exactly what my loved ones are getting from me this year.

What type of foodie would I be if I wasn’t trying to keep everyone happy and eating?! This holiday season, everyone is going to get a taste of what I do – Caramelized Sugar.

Why not make something that will tickle taste buds at every holiday gathering! How does homemade white chocolate with Coffee Caramel sound? Or homemade pumpkin muffins with a Honey Caramel drizzle? What about a cheesecake topped with some Lemon Caramel flakes for something a little different? Why not all three?!

Everyone has his or her favorite flavor, let EFP and VPI help enhance them this time around.

Grab your loved ones, keep them close, and enjoy each other.

Don’t get too wrapped up in the presents. In the mist of it all, who is to say the best present of all, is to, if fact, be present.

Stay warm & Happy Holidays!

Until next time.
