This year I'm giving homemade applesauce, apple butter, pasta sauce and tomato jam. Some elderly friends who are widows or widowers are getting homemade butternut squash soup, since I harvested 47 of those suckers from my garden!! And I made organic butternut squash puree for my baby granddaughter

Krys, your mom would probably love that. Homemade is from the heart, and what momma doesn't love something from her child's heart?

I love making gifts for my family and friends. I paint this year I made Ojibwe door greeters. I gave a couple as gifts and I have had several people buy from me to give as gifts. I have made lap quilts in the past along with hand craved necklaces, hand drawn cards( a set of 12 all occasion). I think it is fun to think of new things to give.

this is a sign I made yesterday I was thinking of giving it to my sons Ojibwe teacher

Love homemade gifts, food or otherwise!

Only problem now is I'm vegan and some people who I exchange gifts with don't know so I've gotten a lot of food so far that I can't eat Including some delicious-looking (and smelling!) homemade truffles!

But I love giving out homemade vanilla extract and other goodies...most people don't even know the baked goods they're getting are vegan!

Thanks! I really liked the idea but I was a little hesitant about doing it. I think i will pick her up a book as well just incase the calender isnt a winner

I am in love with cooking, love to make interesting foods using unique ingredients and love all sorts of ethnic foods. I love it when someone else who is a great cook makes something cool for me for a gift (especially when they make something I've never made before)
