This November and December, Ameri- cans are expected to spend approximately $7.5 million every minute on holiday-relat- ed items, including gifts and festive decora- tions, according to the National Retail Federation. Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a leading independent safety organization, is urging families to dedicate just a fraction of the time and attention spent shopping for gifts and decor on making sure their purchases are being used safely. On average, about 230 people visit emergency rooms each day in November and December to be treated for holiday- related injuries, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. And, the Na- tional Fire Protection Association reports that more home fires occur in December than any other month. “This is easily the busiest time of year,


but it’s important to make time for safety while celebrating the holidays,” says John Drengenberg, director of consumer safety at UL. “By committing one minute a day to safety, many accidents can be avoided and your holidays will be memorable for all the right reasons.” The following tips – taking as little as one minute each – can help families recog- nize, identify and prevent hazards that too often can result in accidents or tragedy: Water your tree: Dry trees pose a sub- stantial fire risk. After bringing your tree home, make a fresh cut at the base of the trunk before putting it in a sturdy stand. Be


sure to water it daily. Additionally, know your tree’s expiration date. After about four weeks, the tree will stop absorbing water, dry out and should be discarded. Check your lights, check them twice: Before hanging light strings, inspect them for damage and wear. Cracks, frays and bare wires can pose fire or shock hazards. Decorate with a safe eye: Cords should not be run under carpets or tacked up with metal nails or staples. Small decorations can be choking hazards and should be kept out of the reach of toddlers.


Gift Basket - continued from page 8


2 packets Starbucks VIA Italian Roast 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup chocolate (milk chocolate is preferred) Directions: Bring sugar, water, and corn syrup to a boil. Stir in the but-


ter when temperature reaches 280°F. When temperature reaches 315°F, stir in the salt, almonds and 1/2 cup pretzels. Cook the mix- ture until it reaches 320°F. Remove from heat and stir in the coffee and vanilla. Immediately pour the toffee into greased pan. Let toffee cool for 15 minutes and sprinkle on finely chopped chocolate and spread to evenly cover the surface. Sprinkle on remaining 1/2 cup pretzels and gently press. Break toffee into squares and store in airtight container for up to two weeks at room temperature. * Know someone who is always looking to spice up holiday par- ties with new appetizers? Consider presenting them with every- thing they need to make homemade jerky. Start out your gift with a cutting board, sharp knives and a large mixing bowl. Then add the following ingredients, or a gift card to a nearby grocery store or butcher shop, and recipe:


Black Pepper Beef Jerky Ingredients:


1 1/2 cups root beer 1 cup water 2 packets Starbucks VIA Ready Brew Italian Roast 3 teaspoons salt 2 tablespoons black pepper, cracked 2 pounds beef round steak Directions: In a large bowl, combine root beer, water, coffee, salt and the


cracked black peppercorns. Trim the meat of any fat and then slice into 1/4 inch thick slices, either with or against the grain. Add the beef to the marinade, a few slices at a time, stirring well to coat each slice with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for six to eight hours. Preheat oven to 200°F. Set wire racks on rimmed baking sheets. Remove the beef from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Arrange the beef on the racks, leaving 1/4 inch between slices. Sprinkle with additional coarsely ground black pepper. Bake for about one hour and 45 minutes until the jerky is firm and almost completely dry, but still chewy. Thicker slices may need to stay in the oven for an additional 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool com- pletely on the racks before serving. Store jerky in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.


Duplicate these gift ideas as frequently as you need for delicious


holiday gifts. And be sure to keep an extra recipe or two around for your family to enjoy as well.
