give as you have been prospered


I need to tell you a little bit more about Hickory Farms. As you know, they offer a variety of specialty foodsand holiday food giftsthat are perfect for any budget and for everyone on your list. Quality, freshness, and value are key traits of all of their holiday treats and gifts, and for more than 60 years, they've been providing holiday shoppers with options that not only impress aesthetically, but also taste delicious.

This year, Hickory Farms is proud to introduce its first ever Signature Chocolate Collection, which I was fortunate to sample. The 1-pound chocolate assortment offers the true taste of American confectionery craftsmanship. Each piece is cooked in small batches using the finest ingredients and paired with premium milk or dark chocolate. The collection is available in select stores, from the catalog and online.

Hickory Farms is a charitable company and they're proud to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. To date, the combined support of Hickory Farms and its valuable customers has raised more than $3.3 million. These contributions help provide funding for summer meal programs, emergency food assistance, nutrition education, holiday charitable giving and long-term solutions for families in need. For each Party Planner gift box sold this holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign. Further, Hickory Farms has 5 products that they offer free shipping to military APO and FPO addresses, including the Festive Cheese Sampler gift basket and Beef Hearty Hickory basket. I like that.

Speaking of cheese, I made pecan pie cheesecake for Thanksgiving again this year. It was appreciated just as much and devoured just as voraciously. I might've cooked the pecan pie part a little too long, so if you make it, don't do that.
