Carrot bread that is much too delicious to be called bread. If you have eaten at Mimi's, you know what a treasure this recipe is, if you have not, you will be delighted! The original recipe compliments of Mimi's Cafe.
Hooray for fall! We love this pumpkin bread recipe--especially when the slices are slathered with a generous spread of cream cheese. Makes two loaves, so freeze the other one, or heck--eat it. This bread goes fast.
Another dip mix from "Gifts in a Bag" recipe book. Don't forget the gift tag. You can make this one as hot as you like by adding crushed red pepper. Gift tag should read: Combine the Mexican Fiesta Dip Mix with the mayonnaise and sour cream. Stir until well blended. Cover and refrigerate. Dip is better if made 8 hours before serving. Serve with chips, crackers, or fresh vegetables. Cook time is chill time.
This makes a nice hostess gift, housewarming gift or even a bridal gift. I put the cake mix in a glass jar with ribbon tied around it. Then put that in a basket along with 9-inch baking dish, jar of molasses, 4 mugs and a bag of fru-fru coffee. Recipe and basket idea are adapted from The Perfect Mix, by Diane Phillips.
A friend of mine gave this to me as a gift for my b-day. She knows how much I love potatoes and this has become a treasured guilty pleasure. A quick, easy lunch. Adapted from the Gooseberry Patch Gifts for Giving cookbook.
Here is another great homemade bridal, hostess, house-warming, etc... gift. Along with the chili mix, I included a pot to cook the chili in and 4 chili bowls, and a jar of cornbread mix. Idea and recipe adapted from Diane Phillips' The Perfect Mix.
Gift basket idea: a bag of Carnival Funnel Cake Mix with instructions, a funnel, a shaker of powdered sugar, and breakfast plates all wrapped up with a pretty bow. Adapted from Gooseberry Patch Gifts for Giving
This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you aren't a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.
Looking for a gift idea for friends and family? Or maybe you're looking for some ornaments for a Christmas tree! Try these fragrant ornaments! Maybe you could make this a pre-holiday family activity and get everyone involved!! Cook time includes drying time for ornaments. 2 trays of ornaments, depending on size of cutters used...this is a guess-ti-mate!
