Food Gifts

There are so many home baked goods that make wonderful gifts. It isn't limited to just brownies and cookies. Though who can say no to fresh baked chocolate chip cookies there are other option. Who doesn't love fresh home made breads, cakes and pies. What about ice cream? Some jelly or jams? Fruit preserves?

The list goes on. Everyone has their specialty. If you don't, you can get things premixed and all you do is add an egg and some water and bake. Add your special touch like putting peanut butter chips into some brownies or swirls of white chocolate on top when they come out of the oven before they cool. Even if it is premixed in the store, that extra touch makes it personalized.
