Blown Glass Solar System Christmas Tree Ornament Set

planet-christmas-tree-ornaments

Last time we spoke of planetary glassware, it was for the Solar System Glass Set and you guys seemed to love it. Well today you’re looking at a set of blown glass tree ornaments featuring 9 planets and the Sun. Yes, 9 planets, which means Pluto once again made it! But as cool as this set is, there’s some bad news. First off, it’ll take 3 to 5 weeks to ship, which means you probably can’t get it in time for Christmas. And on top of that, the thing is $375! So yeah, that’s out of budget for most people.

Still, if you’ve got too much disposable income and like to plan things way, way, way ahead of time, you can always get these for next year.

Edible Greeting Cards: Read It and Eat

Edible Greeting Cards

 

Getting a greeting card from a friend is awesome. Getting to eat it afterward is awesomer. You won’t be able to chew on that card unless it’s made by Eat The Fine Print though, or you’ll probably get a bad case of indigestion. The company specializes in making edible greeting cards that almost taste as good as the message written in it…almost.

The cards come in four flavors: blueberry, orange sorbet, key lime, and strawberry. In case you were wondering about dietary requirements, the cards are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free, and they won’t ruin your diet since they only contain 42 calories.

Spice Up Your Holidays: Sriracha-Twisted Candy Cane Cookies

Sriracha-Twisted Candy Cane Cookies

Some people like it hot. Not hot as in piping hot, but hot as in spicy, Sriracha hot. That might be fine for a bunch of food and drinks, including popcorn and candy canes, but what about Christmas cookies? You’ll have to be the judge of that by baking your own batch of these sweet and spicy candy cane cookies.

The white part is plain sugar cookie dough, while the red bit is the red spiced dough where the sweet peppermint in traditional recipes is replaced with Sriracha instead. The result is something that you’ve probably never tried before.

You can find the recipe here.

Meaty Holidays: Santa Claus Meatloaf

Santa Claus Meatloaf

The holidays are in full swing! The tree is up, the presents are wrapped and piled neatly underneath, and everyone’s heading over to grandma’s to meet, catch up, and present some random relatives with some ugly Christmas sweaters. Then there’s that one relative who comes to the party with some creative-but-creepy-looking Santa Claus meatloaf.

If someone actually does show up with something that at least resembles the one pictured here, then you’ll know where they got the idea from: Chef Charles Phoenix.
