We always need ideas for gifts we can pull together quickly, whether it's a little something for the babysitter or hairdresser, that second cousin you don't know very well, or a hostess gift to take to a holiday party. Here are some items on our shelves that go together well -- just package them in a pretty gift bag with some tissue paper, or ask one of our associates in the gift department to put together a basket for you.

Just when we thought it was over … When we finally ate the last of the leftover turkey and scrubbed the final drop of Pinot Noir out of the carpet, it’s time to plan our holiday parties.
From the first of December through New Year's Day, holiday sparkle is in the air, with family get-togethers, corporate events and small dinner parties.

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where tradition takes front and center. Roast turkey, herbed stuffing, sweet potato casserole and mashed potatoes seem to be the standard menu for this holiday. If you find yourself becoming complacent, bored or uninspired with the whole Thanksgiving meal, then it's time to recharge and reclaim your creative juices by adding a little twist to tradition.

After recent travels to France, one can't help but bring back "une petite" taste of Paris. We're not talking about a few French macarons or a basket of pommes frites. We're talking about "mental souvenirs," flavors and aromas that trigger thoughts of our culinary experience abroad.

You can feel it in the air. The days are slowly getting shorter. Summer vacations have come to a screeching halt and students are back to school. We're out of vacation mode and thrown back into the busy demands of work and school. Eddie's can help you to gently make that transition.

Tapas, small plates, appetizers, finger foods ... Whatever you want to call it, it's a fun way to dine and an easy way to entertain. Entertaining tends to be more casual and spontaneous, especially in the summer. Whether you're at the beach or at home on your deck, tapas is the way to go.

There's nothing more American than celebrating the Fourth of July. Warm weather, good friends, delicious food and fireworks have a certain nostalgic flair. As we get wrapped up in mom, hot dogs and apple pie, we can build on those memories and create our own.

Salads are great main-dish meals, especially in summer, when we're less eager to turn on the oven. We all have our favorite green salads, but how often do we mix fruit and greens together? The result can be very refreshing.

Fresh basil pesto is one of the joys of summer. Fragrant, flavorful and green, it's a refreshing change from traditional tomato sauce in pasta dishes. It can liven up a pasta salad, sandwich or omelet, and it's great as a dip for raw vegetables.
