The season to be jolly is here, so Fat City is looking around for
holiday gift ideas, preferably the kind that can be eaten (or used to
make something that can be devoured).In three weeks, local entrepreneur Valerie Jennings will be getting an unusual, belated holiday gift. She'll officially leave her full-time job dealing with defaulted commercial mortgage loans to focus exclusively on the culinary business she started a year ago: Hippie Chow, a hand-made, all-natural granola."Hippie Chow is demanding a lot more attention from me now," says Jennings, who started selling the product last May at the Overland Park Farmers Market.
