What I’m Gifting From My Kitchen This Year

Nothing beats a homemade gift from the kitchen during the holidays. I love gifting from my kitchen so much that I devoted an entire episode of Kelsey’s Essentials to it. My pie in a jar recipe is always a hit, but this year I wanted to do something that included a recipe that will be featured in my upcoming cookbook (coming in 2013!). I couldn’t resist my Aunt Kim’s famous gingerbread cookie recipe. They are soft and chewy, just the way I like my gingerbread men. To give them a bit more whimsy, I made them bite-sized. Isn’t everything more fun when it’s teeny tiny? I even used a few of the extra cookies to hang on my Christmas tree this year.

To really seal the deal, I packaged them up in beautiful red and white striped boxes that I picked up at a craft store, tied them off with classic green ribbon, and added a bit of fresh holly for the perfect holiday touch. I always like to include the recipe when I’m giving gifts from my kitchen as it adds a lovely personal touch.

Are you gifting from your kitchen this year? What’s the best homemade kitchen gift you’ve ever received?
