7. Running Away to Home by Jennifer Wilson

Running Away

Go on an adventure full of family, food, and fun with this new memoir. The story follows Wilson and her family as they search for meaning in the most extreme way possible. Once a middle class, Midwestern family of the typical soccer- and ballet-practice variety, Wilson, her husband, and their two kids eschew the so-called “American dream” (Why? Because “it sort of sucks”), uproot themselves, and move to their ancestral village in the backwoods of Croatia. Between milking cows, eating roasted pig a stick, and trying their hardest to hunt down the village recipe for bootleg booze, they found something much deeper and bigger than they had imagined.

8. Bolthouse Farms Holiday Nog


You probably already know that Bolthouse Farms makes a whole bunch of tasty fruit and veggie smoothie drinks, but did you know that they make nog, too? Because they do! Give this guilt-free version of the holiday classic a shot. With only 80 calories, this tasty rendition contains 83 percent less fat and 63 percent less calories than standard egg nog. Try serving it with a dash of your favorite rum. Yum! ($6, bolthouse.com)

9. Wolfgang Puck Immersion Blender with Chopper & Accessories


Combine the features of a blender, food processor, and mixer with one spectacular appliance! Mix sauces, chop vegetables and meat, or beat creams and puddings with this great all-in-one. It’s guaranteed to make any foodies life just that much easier. ($69.90, hsn.com)
