Happy day after Thanksgiving! (Hello from the other siiiiiiiide.)

I hope you ate and drank way too much, and that you have no plans today other than rolling around, maybe taking a walk, and watching Elf, The Holiday, Christmas Vacation, or Love Actually with your favorite people.

I’m about to hit the road to Southampton (where I’ll be playing third wheel to Logan and his leftovers on their romantic weekend getaway), but before I go dark, I thought I’d share a very festive holiday-themed Just The Tip. In today’s episode, I’m teaching you how to make my “pot of Christmas,” a super easy version of stovetop potpourri with lots of citrus and warming spices that will make your kitchen/home smell like a cozy holiday wonderland. This stuff simmers on my stove from Thanksgiving through New Years, and after presents, velvet ensembles, and mulled wine, it’s my favorite part of the season. I think you’re gonna be into it. So…

Watch. Learn. Get on my holiday level.

(For the record, Logan is freakishly obsessed with this potpourri, and I’ll regularly come home to find that he’s “lit up the heady Christmas mix” on his own. He makes me very proud.)
