 h1. Dear readers,
 If you're still looking for a gift to give, or one to put on your own list, welcome to Procrastinators Anonymous — the club I've been meaning to start for awhile. Fortunately, Adam Ried has a good suggestion for us: [/columns/adamsrib/gobigorgohome "the 14-inch skillet."] A pan large enough to hold two large onions as they brown? Sign me up. Read this month's [/columns/adamsrib "Adam's Rib"] for more solid reasons to make this our new go-to pan.

 One of the gifts I've already received is homemade granola, packaged in a festive bag and tied with a ribbon. At the rate I'm munching it, it'll be gone before Christmas, but now I'm inspired to make a batch of my own. Carrie Floyd's [/recipes/collections/Culinate+Kitchen/Breakfast/Crunchy+Granola "granola recipe"] is my long-time favorite; maybe you'll like it, too. 

 Here's hoping that your holidays are filled with good food and drink, and that in the next weeks, you can draw close the ones you love. I'll be doing the same and so will see you in the new year.

 Editorial Director
