No one does the holidays quite like Hallmark! When Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show invited The Produce Moms’ founder Lori Taylor to appear on their show to chat about using produce for the holidays, it was a no-brainer.
Over the years, we’ve created and shared many recipes and activities for including fruits and veggies in your holiday celebrations, from Snowman Veggie Trays to Homemade Gift Baskets to Apple Gift Tags. When you get invited to appear on the Hallmark Channel during the holiday season, you show up with your A-game! For us, that meant showing off fan favorites that have resonated with The Produce Moms community.
First up was this decadent Savory Bosc Pear Salad with Bacon and Toasted Pecans. Pears are so elegant and always a great choice for special occasions. The flavors in this salad are deep and rich. You probably don’t think of salads as being indulgent, but this one is!

Our edible, 3-D Strawberry Christmas Tree is always the talk of every holiday party. It’s an impressive centerpiece that happens to be delicious too. It’s also surprisingly easy to make, even for those of us who aren’t particularly crafty.

We couldn’t leave without mentioning our top stocking stuffer pick for kids, StickyLickits. These edible stickers make kids of all ages want to eat fruits and veggies which makes parents rejoice! No sugar, no gluten, no GMO, no soy, no dairy, no peanuts or tree nuts. No artificial ingredients whatsoever. They’re also vegan and kosher. Just choose your favorite sticker, peel it off the page, lick the back and stick it on a piece of fruit or veg, then eat the whole thing! Lick it! Stick it! Eat It!
