Amy Sedaris is stopping by with some gift-giving help from her hilarious book Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People. Jane and Michael Stern are at Hartley's Pork Pies in Fall River, Mass., and Mexican cook Fany Gerson introduces us to the unusual sweets of Mexico with her book My Sweet Mexico.

Neat and tidy and packed well enough so that even when the crust is breached it doesn't ooze, Hartley's pork pie has an historic taste: traditional lard crust (the best!), ground pork and gravy. It is not huge, but it is hugely satisfying.
