      Oh, forgot about the edible gift idea- a gift certificate to Kilpatrick Family Farm’s CSA- So popular during the Holiday season!

  3. Meg says:

    I love the first post by Leslie. The quick bread in a jar and pancakes in a jar. So cute and a great holiday present for teachers. I think homemade things like this are more appreciated than something store bought.

    I don’t have any edible gift ideas, but reading this weeks posts get my creative juices flowin’!

    I am definitely making the peanut butter cups! I told my kids earlier today how excited I am to make them (but with soynut butter). I also want to try the granola recipe – mine needs a little more ooomph.

    I love to give away our pancake breakfast basket. This is what I put in a jar:
    2 cups flour
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    I attach a pretty tag with instructions to add:
    2 cups milk (cow, rice or soy)
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil

    And with the mix I give a bottle of local maple syrup.

    I like the addition of cinnamon in Leslie’s recipe!

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Alicia Silverstone’s book, The Kind Diet. The book has received rave reviews; it was voted one of the top 10 cookbooks of 2010 by Time Magazine and one of the Best Cookbooks of the Decade by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. It focuses on a heart-healthy vegan lifestyle (and I am a vegan) but the recipes are fabulous, appealing to vegans and non-vegans alike, from chefs to newbie cooks. Alicia is also a devoted and courageous animal rights spokesperson. She walks her talk so I have great respect for what she has accomplished…including these oh-so-tempting chocolate treats!

      edible treats I like to give–my nieces and nephews love to help me make chocolate covered gumdrops for their friends…so easy!

  6. Melissa Barnes says:

    the pancakes in a jar look great – my kids love pancakes!

  7. leslie r says:

    definitely hope to try Alexis’ apple chutney! Also the peppermint bark. I hope to try making some of these with the girls when they are here… so thank you all for your recipes and stories. Its nice to see the ” younger” generation so excited about slow food and real cooking.

    Keep it going!

    I would like to try the chutney, and am a bit scared of the canning process! I love making sugar cookies using whole wheat flour and molasses, it gives a hearty texture and by using large cutters, the kids can decorate elaborately and they don’t end up too sweet! Also melted rolos on top of butter pretzels are deliciously easy. The hardest part is unwrapping the rolos!

  9. Kyla says:

    I’d like to try the peanut butter cups because that is my favorite thing to eat in the whole wide world!

    I don’t really have any tried n true edible gifts. Although this year for an xmas gathering I made mint chocolate chip cookies that were easy peasy.
    (1) pouch of betty crocker sugar cookie mix
    (1) egg
    (1/2c) butter
    (1/4tsp) mint extract
    (6 drops) green food coloring (perhaps more if being helped by a toddler)
    lots of creme de menthe chips
    lots of chocolate chips
    Beat cookie mix, egg, and butter till soft dough forms. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Drop by tablespoon on cookie sheet. Cook for 7-10 min at 375. Voila! Minty fresh cookies!

    Peppermint bark- but it all looks great. My fav to make myself are Rosemary Walnuts- yum!

  11. Sarah Holdaway says:

    I actually madfe Amanda’s bark and fudge this weekend and got rave reviews. My favorite edible treat to make and give away is Russian Tea Cakes. They are awesome with a cup of tea, hot chocolate or coffee. I learned to make them from my mom and now every year I make them for my office friends and my husband.

    Thanks for all the great ideas above!!

  12. Rebecca says:

    what a cool idea!!

  13. Kim M. says:

    They all sound great, but I think that breakfast in a jar or pancakes in a jar are for me…breakfast in our house is NOT very exciting!

    Oops, forgot my own edible gifts. I have done many over the years (although not so much lately). Spice rubs are an easy thing to make up in nice tins for people. Also for those who I know don’t have food allergies (or little ones with food allergies), I like to give my peanut sauce, usually made mild but gifted with a nice hot sauce so they can adjust the spice, and some nice organic udon noodles. I make huge batches and then dole out. The basic proportions are:
    3 cups water
    2 cups sesame oil
    2 cups tamari
    2 cups maple syrup
    6 cups peanut butter
    fresh garlic & ginger to taste (I use a lot!)
    hot sauce to taste

    this is nice with grated carrots and chopped chives too!
    add water to thin and serve over udon noodles or as a dipping sauce for veggies.
    my (almost) 2 year old loves this sauce on almost anything!!!

    I love the idea of edible gifts, in today’s economy sometimes food is the best gift to give.
    I really like Leslie’s Quick Bread in a Jar AND Pancakes in a Jar and Amanda’s Trio of Treats: Nannie’s Fudge, Daddy’s Chocolate Bark and The Kind Diet’s Peanut Butter Cups.
    I think I will be trying a lot of them this year.

    Last year some gifts included items from the dollar store:
    A basket, body wash, body poof, bubble bath, exfoliating glove, body spray.
    A mug, hot cocoa packets, marshmallows, peppermint sticks, and homemade cookies.
    A mug, coffee and tea samples, creamer packets, and homemade cookies.
