THE HOVLAND SWANSON BOW

Hovland Swanson Department Store in Lincoln, Nebraska, was the place to purchase your wife a mink coat for Christmas. Hovland offered wonderful gift wrapping for any purchase, but a mink coat was placed inside a new aluminum trash can. Many a husband could be seen grinning ear to ear while putting a shiny silver garbage can with a Hovland Swanson bow under the tree. When a woman arrived at church on Christmas morning wearing a mink coat with a bow pinned to the front, everyone knew she had opened a garbage can from Hovland. The department store is closed, but the bow lives on.

Home Roast

Raw to roasted: Coffee in three minutes. 1. Plug in hot-air popcorn popper and let it warm up for 30 seconds. Quickly pour in a half-cup of beans and stir with wooden spoon. 2. Put lid in place, making sure beans continue to rotate. Beans will turn a light brown after one minute and chaff (the coffee’s silverskin) will start floating out. About two minutes in, you’ll start to hear a sound like a gentle fire crackling. This is known as "first crack", or when the internal cell walls of the coffee bean are being fractured by heat and boiling oils. At this point, coffee is entering the "light roast" style. The roast can be stopped at any time after first crack begins. After a pause following the first crack, you’ll start to hear a "second crack" at about three minutes that will increase in frequency. At the moment second crack starts, the beans are a "medium roast." As the second crack continues, beans will become a "dark roast." 3. Shut off popper and dump beans into colandar. Use oven mitts, as everything will be extremely hot. 4. Sift to rub off any remaining chaff. Let cool and store in an air-tight container. 5. Let beans sit for at least two days before brewing.

WRAP IT Start with silver paper. Pick a color scheme and go to town with the matchy-matchy.

1. Feathers and Bells Grab a white feather boa (michaels.com) and loop it around your package. String gilttered jingle bells onto wire and attach to the boa.

3

2. Cupcake Bow Use a pack of small cupcake wrappers. Fold about 20 in half. Create a base by hot gluing wrappers in a circle. Keep adding up and up. Put a rhinestone or tinsel in the middle to hide the glue!

4

3. Mini Jingle Bells String a pack of small jingle bells onto matching embroidery thread and wrap around a long, narrow gift. 4. Christmas Bulbs Jazz up a pack of plain white Christmas replacement bulbs (target.com) with a glitter pen. Let dry, then string them up with metal-wired garland ribbon. 5. Pretty Twigs Attache pre-made holiday twigs or make your own! 6. Ornaments Attach coordinating ornament bulbs with metal-wired garland ribbon for two gifts in one.

HOLIDAY 2011 ď‚&#x; machemag.com


SPICED PUMPKIN SOUP serves 6 • 1 hour, 30 minutes • $ 2 small sugar or pie pumpkins 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 14-ounce can coconut milk 1-6 teaspoons red Thai curry paste 2-4 cups water 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 2 teaspoons salt 1/4 cup pecan halves

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and position oven racks to the middle. 2. Cut pumpkin in half and scoop out seeds. Rub with olive oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt. Place halves side down onto a baking sheet. Roast in the oven 40-50 minutes until squash is tender throughout. 3. Once cool enough to handle, scoop pumpkin into a large pot and place over medium heat. Add coconut milk and bring to a simmer. 4. Using a hand blender, puree the pumpkin and coconut. Then add the red Thai curry paste a teaspoon at a time, blending then tasting after each addition until you reach your desired level of spice. 5. Add water (a cup at a time) to the puree until you reach your desired consistency. 6. Rewarm the soup and season with salt to taste. 7. Garnish with pecan halves. Note: Sugar pumpkins (also called pie or baking pumpkins) are smaller than “carving pumpkins,” taste sweeter and have a nicer texture when cooked. If you can't find sugar pumpkins, substitute with two acorn or other small winter squash variety.

LAVENDER HONEY CHICKEN serves 6 • 45 minutes • $$ 2 whole chickens, quartered 1 tablspoon salt 2 teaspoons dried lavender 1 tablespoon dried thyme 1 tablespoon dried rosemary 1/2 cup honey 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and position racks toward middle of the oven. 2. Season chicken with salt and arrange in one layer onto a baking sheet or two. Bake for 20 minutes. 3. In the meantime, combine lavender, thyme, rosemary, honey and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. 4. Baste the chicken with the lavender honey marinade every five minutes for an additional 15-20 minutes or until completely cooked though and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken reads 165 degrees. 5. Remove chicken from the oven, cover with aluminum foil and allow to rest for five minutes before serving. Notes: Dried lavender can be purchased online. Try The Spice House www.thespicehouse.com/spices Because of the honey, the chicken may brown quickly during basting; you can cover the chicken with aluminum foil until it is cooked through to prevent the honey from burning.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Add butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar to large bowl. Use an electric mixer on medium speed and beat until creamy. 3. Add eggs, vanilla extract and orange zest; beat well. 4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Slowly add to butter mixture until mixed well. Stir in oats, cranberries and chocolate chips. 5. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. 6. Bake eight-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Allow to cool on cookie sheets for five minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store tightly covered.


LIKE A PRO Adjust baking times to achieve the cookie texture you crave. A little less time produces chewier cookies; a little more time makes them crispy.


NO JUDGING Sometimes it's just not possible to whip up a cookie from scratch. We've all been there. These cookies from IKEA are still darn tasty.

HALF TIME IN HEAVEN PRETZEL BITES serves 15 • 1 hour • $ 1 cup creamy peanut butter 2 tablespoons softened butter 3/4 cup powdered sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar pretzels 1 bag semisweet chocolate chips

PRETZEL BITES RECIPE CARD

1. Combine peanut butter and softened butter in a large bowl. 2. Add the sugars and mix to combine. At this point, the filling will roll easily into balls without sticking to your hand. If not, add a little more of each sugar until you reach a consistency that is easy to roll. 3. Roll each teaspoon-sized portion into a small ball, then sandwich between two pretzels. 4. When all the balls are rolled and sandwiched, stick the tray in the freezer for about a half-hour. 5. Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and heat at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted. 6. Remove the pretzel sandwiches from the freezer and quickly dip each halfway into the melted chocolate. 7. When all are dipped, return the tray to the freezer to set up completely. 8. Serve frozen or straight out of the refrigerator. Yield: about 60 bites

Roll ouf the dough from center out until it is 1/8-inch thick and 2 inches larger in diameter than the pie tin.

Tuck or trim the overhang to create a 1-inch edge, then use fingers and thumb to crimp.

Turn back every other strip to place the crosswise strips, starting with the center crosswise strip.

Transfer dough by carefully rolling it around the rolling pin, and then gently unroll over tin. Gently press the dough into tin, being careful not to tear or stretch it.

Add filling. Roll out dough as above. Using a ruler or guide, cut even strips of the desired width, typically 1/2 inch. Place strips over pie in one direction, evenly spaced

Brush the top and sides of the pie with egg wash to make a golden crust.

Spread the Cheer Your guests won't believe you're a holiday novice.

BY ASHLEY KOS M I C K I • P H OTO BY A N A N DA S PA DT


ORNAMENT WREATH You'll spend more time picking out a color scheme than you will making this easy conversation starter.

60 regular-size red balls 6 medium to large gold balls 20 small red balls 20 small red bells decorative wire twigs gold pinecones hot glue gun 10 yards of 3-inch-wide gold ribbon or a pre-made bow 1. Layout a large circle with the 60 regular-size red balls (don’t worry if it’s not perfectly circular), creating the base of the wreath. 2. Start with one bulb and use a hot glue gun to glue the bulbs until you have the circular base together. 3. Add the small decorative balls to set off the monotony of the red base. 4. Place small red bells to fill in any gaps and to add a bit of holiday cheer. 5. Attach gold pinecones and decorative wire twigs to the back for extra flare. 6. Attach a gold bow. MAKING THE BOW 1. Follow this pattern: Make a loop, twisting the ribbon around the base and back to a loop again, so the pretty side of your ribbon faces out. 2. When all of the loops are in place, hot glue them generously together at the base and where they connect. 3. Once all the loops are glued in place, make a “stem” and wrap the ribbon around itself, using glue to hold it in place. Use this stem to attach the bow to the back of the wreath.

BAD

If you want to look your best in every shot, don't be caught pulling these stunts.

1. DOUBLE UP. Prevent a double chin by pushing your chin out rather than pulling back. 2. HUNCH. No slouching! It just looks bad. 3. DISTORT. Don't forget, the closest to the camera looks biggest.

3

4. BOX OUT. Posing straight-on makes you appear wider than you are. Nobody wants that. 5. NEGLECT. Don't forget about your legs even if they're not in the picture. Pose head to toe (any Tyra fans out there?).

GOOD We know you want to look gorgeous in holiday photos, follow these tips for a hot shot.

1. CHOOSE A SIDE. Put your best side forward. 2. ELBOWS OUT. Hold arms away from your body to prevent larger-looking arms. Holding a drink is a great trick! 3. COMPOSE. Angle part of your body toward the camera (rather than posing straight-on) for an interesting—and more flattering— composition. 4. SPREAD 'EM. Create gaps to make your legs appear narrower. 5. TALL TRICK. Point your toe for a longer-looking line.

Fear not! A rich, classic red looks great on everyone.

FINDING YOUR SHADE

1. Take into consideration your eye color and skin tone. An easy way to determine whether your skin tone is warm or cool is to look at the veins in your arm; if they are bluer, you are cool. If they are greener, you are warm. 2. Once you know your skin tone, stick with a color to match. If you have a warm skin tone, a pretty shade of coral red with an orange undertone will be your best option. If your skin tone is cool, a beautiful raspberry or plum shade with purple undertones will be most flattering. If you’re still not sure, a rich classic red looks great on everyone. Tip: Coordinate cheek and eye makeup by staying in the same family of warm, cool or neutral tones.
