Best recipes for homemade Christmas gifts

I only gift them to people who I know closely or to family; I am a thrower outer unless it is from a family member or someone close to me.

Chuck roast for pulled beef sandwiches

I looked last time I was at Costco and saw no "chuck" label. That's why I was wondering if it went by another name.

Looking for recipes to make boozy gifts for Christmas

I just finished bottling homemade creamy limoncello. I am looking for other ideas for homemade liqueurs, or liqueur/wine based drinks/preserves/fruit gifts for Christmas.

Chuck roast for pulled beef sandwiches

Is there another name that piece of meat goes by? If read a few other sites, but some say centre cut something, others don't. I don't want to waste time and money on a tough non shred able pce of beef.

What to do with lemons? Zested over 20 of them

Will do; freeze of course. Darn! I was hoping marmalade but need the zest for that too? Ice cubes it is for the rest!

What to do with lemons? Zested over 20 of them

I have no skin on the lemons. We made batches of limoncello. All that's left is the pith on the outside with the segments on the inside. If I segment the lemons, can I do something with that?

We needed to zest a lot of lemons for a recipe. What can I do with the leftovers?
Lemon Marmalade?
Lemon simple syrup?

Recs for nice trivets and punch bowl

Most punch bowls I find are too small. I don't care if they have cups/glasses included. I'd like a larger punch bowl. I don't think SS would be good, would it?

I am also looking to purchase some trivets as part of a Christmas gift. They need to be attractive but work to protect solid wood dining room tables from hot plates/serving dishes.

Never shopped at a Coop before

Thank you; unfortunately, this time, I'm only in the great city this afternoon and tomorrow morning. I will check out Karma.

Not in the shells; I called. Only shelled.

Wow; there is one?

Looking for some old hens

I used to be able to find organic stewing hens in many places (not local to my town, but when I travelled). Any place in the Toronto area for organic stewing hens. Not a fan of Healthy Butcher.

Stewing Hens - Saint Lawrence Market and Downtown

I like Sanagans. Are they still available there? Any place for organic stewing hens?

ISO Fresh filberts

AKA Hazelnuts, in shell. Fresh. Where can they be purchased?

Never shopped at a Coop before

They don't have them where I live; are there any ones that are particularly good in TO?
Nice vegetables, unique or good quality eggs, etc.

Napolean - the dessert

These kinds:

Napolean - the dessert

Thanks all - according to the Wikipedia pics (I am always cautious about "believing" Wikipedia, seems to me that:
a)it seems she loves "mille foglie" Italian kind
b) second choice would be the French kind of mille feuille

ISO authentic arepa/taco meat recipes

Trying it today; thanks!

Michigan meat..where to buy farm direct?

Anyone know of a place where you can get goat? I prefer not to do an auction. I am in the general area of Shelby Twnship.

I'm not sure I am familiar with that kind.

It's a party in your mouth apparently...lol. I'm sure everyone knows I meant PASTRY.

That's the French/Italian kind that has nice party cream in the laters.
