Here's what Country Living says,"Our hot-chocolate mix, made with the finest cocoa and chocolate, is a cut above most store-bought varieties. Fill jars with the mix, cover the lids with a festive swath of fabric, and include peppermint "stirring" sticks for added flavor and color. Try adding to a basket with mugs, spoons, marshmallows, whipped cream and maybe a good movie!
Delicious to have on hand, this bean filling can be used for so much more than tacos or burritos: As a casserole filling, part of a mexican layer dip, lettuce wraps (add some shredded jicama!) etc. You could also modify the flavor profile by adding some fried plantains. If you like, you can wrap up the burritos ahead of time, flash freeze on non-stick trays, and store in freezer bags. I just prefer to thaw the filling and wrap as needed. Don't skip the cinnamon - it really makes the dish!
This is a mix to create individual servings like the Warm Delights, cake in a mug/cup craze. It is "just add water". It makes a rich, fudgy cake. This is suitable for gift giving. It does not use a cake mix to start, and does not use egg. It is prepared in the microwave. 4 Tbl of mix filled my mug about half full, it does rise a little when cooking. This amount of mix will make 11 cakes, or if your mug is big enough for a double batch it will make 5. If you just want to make one just decrease the yield to 1 cake.

This came from my Southern Living magazine in an article about homemade food gifts for the holidays. I think nothing says love better than something homemade. It means you took time and thought into making someone a gift. Their suggestions for use are to toss with pasta, veggies, or popcorn, sprinkle over salads, mix with butter and baste hot baked bread with it, or use it in flour for breading chicken.
Ras el Hanout ( "top of the shop" ) is a spice mixture from Morocco that can contain anywhere from 10-100 different spices. After checking cookbooks & searching online I decided on this combination for this spice mix.
A moist and delicious quick bread mix for gift giving! Nothing says "I love you!" better than a gift from the kitchen. And especially one that fills the house of your recipient with the aroma of sweet, fresh baked bread. The dry ingredients are layered in a quart-sized jar and the jar can be decorated in any number of ways to reflect the occasion. Be sure to attach a recipe card or an embellished tag, to the jar, with the recipe, additional ingredients needed and baking instructions. Prep time includes putting together the gift jar as well as combining the wet ingredients before baking.
This makes a great gift, needs to be refrigerated. Give in a jar with a pretty spoon tied onto it. Serve over oatmeal, yogurt or toast! Adapted from MarthaStewart Living magazine. Catagories: USA, Canada, Africa, Australia
I found this online while searching cookies in jar recipes. I tried it out and it was really tasty and different. I gave these as small gifts during the holidays and everyone seemed to love them. EDITED TO ADD: A reviewer noted that if you are making these cookies for yourself and double the recipe, the ingredients in the instructions DO NOT change. :)
I can't believe this isn't already posted. This is a super easy way to make cornbread fast. Keep this in your pantry and all you will need to add is some water, oil and an egg for cornbread. The recipe is from Make-A-Mix Cookery. I usually use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all-purpose flour.
Apples, raisins, pecans, and just a hint of lemon – what could taste better with a steaming cup of fresh coffee? These light, fruity pancakes taste so good no one will realize how healthy they are. Freeze the extras to reheat in the microwave and you’ll have a hot, delicious breakfast a lot faster than waiting in line at the drive-thru. Or hand them to the kids cold for an on-the-go, in-the-car start when time is short.
