Festive Food to Share at Work

Not so many years ago I was standing in line at a potluck lunch and inadvertently said to the woman next to me, “I can’t believe someone brought store-bought snack cakes.” She plaintively responded, “well, I didn’t have time to bake.” I quickly stuffed my mouth with something other than the only foot I was still standing on and smiled an apology.
