Our Favorite Holiday Treats

As another year draws to an end, I present to you (get it? PRESENT to you???) some of  what I consider the best of Live Pretty to help make your holiday a bit more special.  So here is a round up of everything merry, bright, and — best of all — delicious.  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a blessed New Year to you and yours.
