Twelve Delicious Gifts of Food and Love From Your Kitchen!

Gifts from the heart, often start in the kitchen. And I have learned the hard way that the holidays or any other gift giving celebration, is not the time to try something new in the kitchen. Which is way I am offering twelve of our tested and time honored recipes that also make delicious gifts, just about any time of the year. 

Gather up some pretty wrapping paper, a few gift tins and baskets along with a few hasp top jars and you will have all the supplies needed for the delicious food gifts coming from your kitchen. Plus a gift you make and give, is like giving two gifts. The gift itself and plus all the caring worked in along the way. 

None of these recipes are hard (because seriously that would take all the fun out!) but they are all delicious. And please, don't let any of the humble photos stop you from making these for gifts. Because food doesn't get any better, when it is created with love...and put in a pretty container! 

Easy to Make Toffee.  This is the easiest toffee you will ever make. And for those with nut allergies, simply substitute pretzels for the walnuts, or make a batch both ways! Break and pack into a wide mouth jar with a ribbon on top.

Persimmon Jam. This is a seasonal jam, but the season is now! Persimmons have hit the marketplace and this jam is worth the effort. Ladle and seal in small jam jars and give with a smile on your face, because it is that good...

Whole Wheat Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are so good. Don't worry about the whole wheat flour, with the browned butter and crispy nuts (and don't forget the chocolate chips!) no one will realize they are eating a whole grain cookie. Pack a dozen or two into a basket and wait for the compliments!

Cranberry Honey Mustard.  Don't let my refrigerator jar lead you to think this is not worth making. Pack it into a festive jar for gift giving...

Whole Grain Applesauce and Spice Chocolate Chip Cake.  This cake is spectacular and would make a wonderful gift for a larger family. You can also find a small bather version here. Because smaller families will love this cake just as much!

Fresh Tangerine Marmalade. Tangerines are in the marketplace now. This is a no canning required recipe. I like to give it is a small condiment bowl, with a lid. This is the only microwave recipe on the blog.

Gouda Cheese Spread.  Not all gifts given need to be sweet. Some folks have a savory tooth in place of a sweet tooth. This is the food gift for them!

Brandied Cherry and White Chocolate Quick Bread. Quick bread doesn't get any better than this!

Three Ingredient Nutella Brownies. Brownies are always a hit! These easy and delicious brownies are no different. They disappear fast!

White Chocolate Peanut Butter. This is the gift for that loved one who you have a hard time finding or even making a gift for. Why? Because I have never seen anyone say they don't like this spread...

Pear Creme Pie. When you hand a fresh baked pie to the giftee, you are their friend for life!

Simple Nut Bread.  Simple, delicious, and homemade. Do we need to say any more?
