Wednesday, September 15


Now that the kids are back in school, the holidays have been on my mind. They're already talking about Halloween costumes and that means only one thing - Christmas isn't far behind.

I love to give gifts of specialty food products. The prices are usually a bit of a splurge, but they're gifts afterall. Remember, being thrifty isn't always about finding the least expensive thing.

I really like Stonewall Kitchen. The Wild Maine Blueberry Jam is to die for and so is the Lemon Curd. They're both delicious on scones, pancakes and waffles. Pricey, but worth it.

If you're putting together a gift for the holidays, a birthday or a bridal shower, you could put together a gift with a theme like breakfast or afternoon tea. Whip up some homemade scone or muffin mix (don't bake it, just include the mix), include some loose leaf tea and a tea strainer, and the jam or lemon curd. Put it all in a muffin tin or tart pan, wrap in cellophane and tie with a pretty ribbon.

 A nice, thoughtful gift anyone would enjoy receiving.
