Every year, over 700,000 tons of food are wasted in Denmark, which is why NGO DanChurchAid opened up a grocery store earlier this year selling expired — but safe-to-consume — foods for discounted rates in Copenhagen. The market, called Wefood, is doing so well that a second store has opened its doors for environmentally conscious shoppers.

Come December, we’d wager every lunch box has a clementine or two tucked inside of them.

When you add an extra ingredient to the mix, clementines become a snack-time superstar. From chocolate to nuts, here’s how to turn your clementines into a winning snack.

The whole point of a snack board is to keep it extra simple and extra fuss-free, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give yours a little upgrade now and then. Add one or two of these ingredients — they are on the fancier side, but easy enough to find — to your snack board to jazz it up without even trying.

There’s only one house cooler than the White House this time of year: the gingerbread house that lives in the White House. Made of 150 pounds of gingerbread, 100 pounds of bread dough, 20 pounds of gum paste, 20 pounds of icing, and 20 pounds of sculpted sugar pieces, it’s a sweet sight to take in.
Of course, the actual White House is a close second, with plenty of festive decorations. This year’s holiday theme, The Gift of Family and Friends, refers to presents (of course) and also the true gifts of life (think: service, friends and family, education, and more). We got a tour earlier today — and now you get to take a look.

Arguably the trickiest part of making big-batch breakfasts of pancakes and waffles is delivering everything to the table at the same time, still warm and just as good as it is right off the griddle. But it’s totally possible, and actually pretty easy to pull off.

Starbucks gets all the glory when it comes to its red holiday cups, but there’s another beverage in town that also deserves a little more seasonal recognition. To ring in the 140th year of selling to the American public during the holiday season, Anheuser-Busch’s Budweiser has unveiled brand new, limited edition seasonal packaging — just in time for the start of 2016 Christmas festivities.
Inspired by the tradition of decorating the 12 U.S. Budweiser breweries for the holidays, the lager company has decked out their twist-off beer bottles in a tonal Christmas red, making this a must-have collector’s item for the Budweiser superfan in your life.

Savory candy canes might seem like an oxymoron, or more like something a mad culinary scientist would dream up, but I’m here to tell you they are real. The Seattle-based retailer Archie McPhee, the same folks behind cheeky snack products like bacon-flavored jelly beans and absinthe gumballs, have now given the world pickle candy canes. Yes, you read that correctly.

I know we all associate December with cookies, cocktails, yule logs and latkes, but what about the smaller, enduring festivities that often go overlooked, namely workplace and other potluck luncheons? Because my “coworkers” are basically a laptop and occasionally these wild things, my current participation level is limited, but I know that usually what happens is that it’s rather easy to bring cookies and cakes but as nobody wants to drag a roast on the subway and then heat it up in the breakroom microwave, main dishes are harder to nail down.
I am here to help. I found myself wracking my brain a few weeks ago for something to make for my husband’s work potluck — and unfortunately, heh, as someone recognized him early in his tenure there as my husband, I cannot get away with sending him in with a box of Dunkin Donuts, drat — and ended up making two of these galettes. They fit the bill of being something that’s delicious cold or at room temperature, but they are a bit of work. Five minutes after sending him off, I realize the perfect solution was here the whole time.
