Each month, thousands of Food Network Magazine readers submit clever names for the back page’s Name This Dish contest. Previous dishes include a steak sandwich (“Kraut Pleaser“), savory muffins (“Thyme Savors“) and a Santa ice cream treat (“Brrrr Humbug!“). In the January/February 2014 issue, we asked readers to dream up names for this rolled crepe (pictured above). Some of our favorites were:

Use your holiday cookie cutters to make fun tree-shaped crackers: Just punch out shapes from wonton wrappers (usually found in the refrigerated section of the produce aisle).

Go for a sweet look with gumdrop string lights ($30 for 25 feet; holidayprojectors.com) or peppermint candy lights ($20 for 11 feet; lightsforalloccasions.com).

The ravioli ended up in the story, but we think the 9-inch-tall pie deserves a shout-out this year: Twenty years ago, a flood almost destroyed Kimmswick, but volunteers built a levee to save the town. The pie is a nod to the high levee. See the rest of the gifts here.
