Can You Bake?


In between product orders I've been making Christmas gifts.
Everyone loves food, especially easy to make food.
Pour into a bowl, add butter and eggs, what could be easier?

Brownie & Cookie Mixes
Sorted into families

Each row has a label at the end denoting which family it goes to.
The short rows will get sweet and savory breads, muffins, suckers,
chocolate confections ETC.
Cocoa Powder canister refashioned

Covered this canister with wallpaper from the thrift shop
and leftover ribbon. Just used Elmer's to adhere.
Perfect for the pretzels!

Don't tell anyone I spelled Biscotti wrong!
 I made recipe cards using purchased postcard stock.
The software program for the cards/labels was free from Avery
and the clipart was in my Microsoft Works Program.

There's lots of chocolate covered pretzels, peanut butter cups,
marshmallow treats, and haystacks waiting to be packaged.

Are you cooking/baking for Christmas?

Till next time,
Eat More Chocolate!

Love your recipes in a jar creations, Terry. You did good! :)

Love your jars of mixes. They look wonderful and yummy.
I used to do things like this, but where I live, people find it very offensive if you give them homemade or handmade gifts. They think you are cheap and a bum, so I quit.
I just make my goodies for myself and enjoy with tea.

Have a great week.

Thanks Nancy, I had fun making them. Loved your photo today!

Hey Denim, It's unfortunate that your gifts of imagination & talent were considered to be valueless.
They are much more thoughtful & harder to make. Anyone can go to the mall & purchase.
Most of my family enjoy the food gifts. I consider each recipients’ tastes & skill level. Don't want to give the non baker the biscotti jar. My oldest girl loves rice pudding, so easy to put in a jar.
And who doesn't like chocolate?
Even had time to sew a few things.

Hope you have a great week also!
