The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s are filled with specialty foods, delicious meals and decadent desserts. If your days will be spent planning the meals, shopping for the perfect ingredients or preparing the food, why not skip the final course this holiday season and let any one of our local businesses fill your gatherings with freshly baked cookies, assorted pies, seasonal cakes or specialty breads?
