We know the holidays can bring a lot of joy, but it can be stressful to juggle everything you’ve got going and keep tabs on your shopping budget. To give you some tips on how to save money in the kitchen and keep a little jingle in your pocket, Tati Amare spoke to Food Network personality and bestselling cookbook author Sunny Anderson.
If families are avoiding turkey or ham being the centerpiece of another party, Anderson suggested Cornish hens. They’re smaller, which means they take less time to roast and will look super cute on the holiday table.
When it comes to baked goods, Anderson recommends putting down the baking tools and supporting a local business. She says she likes to stop at local bakeries to find something sweet and tasty for the holidays. The cookbook author said that you can also buy something simple at the grocery store and put your artisan skills to work by designing your food to suit the holiday decor. Consider adding a Rudolph nose or green frosting to create a Christmas tree.
Anderson even commented on the freebies and says she wants to make the “re-gifts” cool. She likes to talk about “reuse,” but it’s a great way to declutter and give people things they might appreciate more than you do.
