TIP OF THE DAY: Christmas Crudites, A Gingerbread House Alternative

Vegetable Christmas House

Veggie Lodge

Chocolate Holiday House

How about a vegetable cottage instead of a gingerbread house?

Created by Green Giant; we found it on

It was originally posted on Green Giant’s Facebook page.

Here’s the rub:

The bloggers who re-posted provided the ingredients, but instructed the reader to “Click here for the directions From Green Giant’s Facebook Page.”

Alas, clicking all those links delivers a “Page Not Found.”

Conspiracy: Maybe there never were directions! At best, we have some step-by-step photos.

So you’ll have to put it together yourself. Or delegate it to someone who likes to build.

If you’re a great food crafter, please make it and send us the instructions.
