Happy holidays, we love this time of year! Office demands slow a bit as vacations and celebrations begin. How many holiday parties will you attend? Don’t know what to bring? A crock pot of meatballs is always welcome, or perhaps a gourmet olive platter.  Hosting a cocktail party? Stock up on mixers and garnishes. Don’t know what to give your boss, neighbor or hard-to-please relative? We've got you covered with new gift packs. Check out our Events below for locations where you can buy these gifts directly from us, or go to any of our retail Locations to put together your own gifts. For last-minute shoppers, we will be in Citrus Park Mall the weekend before Christmas at a kiosk near Starbucks with grab-and-go gifts.

Recipe of the Month- Easy Pleasey Italian Meatballs
This dish is cooked and served in a crock pot, making it the perfect holiday party dish. You use the entire jar of olives in the sauce, olive brine, garlic slices, peppers and all. The wine in the brine marries with the tomatoes, making a savory sauce worthy of any gathering.
