Say, I Love You: Edible Christmas Gifts

Ahhh the Holidays. Time to cozy up with family and participate in cheesy traditions.

I thought that in the spirit of the season, I would compile some of my favorite recipes that I have made as gifts for people over the years. Giving something from the heart is better than buying someone something they will never use. Especially for people at work, homemade gifts can really put everyone in the holiday spirit.

Thanksgiving 2012 with the family

Remember, people want to know you are thinking of them. So no matter how little or big your gift is, homemade holiday cheer is always backed by love. The time you put in, the thought you put into it, your friends and family know. A few sugar cookies won’t break the bank, but they will surely bring a smile to someone’s face.

Remember, accidents happen. Here was my holiday flub while making icing last year. Just laugh, and start again. Happy Holidays!
