Life on an city smallholding wherein we grow kids, critters, and an ever increasing DIY repertoire.
Gifts from your kitchen.
I've received several "jar gifts" that have various complete baking mixes (usually cookies) made from scratch and decorated beautifully. All you do is follow the instructions on the card and bake. (You usually have to add eggs to the mix.) It's such a personal, wonderful gift that I wanted to start making some to give away as gifts myself. There's a two books that I have that are WONDERFUL for gift-in-a-jar recipes. "Gifts from the Kitchen" and "Christmas Gifts from the Kitchen" by Jean Pare'. These are filled with ideas, not just for food items, but some bath items too!
