It did take a little extra time, but I think her reaction to it was completely worth it! She loved it and I was already asked for more "jars of awesomeness". I only wished they lived closer so I could easily get them to her!
Some of these I will give the links for and others I will post the recipes if you wish, but you will get the idea and there will be TONS of recipes found online!
Her gift included:
-2 qt batter bowl w/ cover with pb chocolate popcorn
-measuring cups and spoons
-potholders/mitts in her kitchen theme
-8x8 pyrex baking dish w/lid
-measuring shot glass(tbsp and tsp)
-bamboo towels(and I LOVED these and wanted to keep them!)
-Cappuchino Waffle Mix
-Bean and Pasta Soup Mix
-Oatmeal Choc. Chip cookie mix
-Cranberry Almond Muffin Mix
-Dog Biscuit Mix
-Pizza Dough Mix
-Rocky Road Brownie Mix
Each mix was in a mason jar or a recycled jar...it is not always easy to find a mason/canning jar. I found I started buying pasta sauce just for the jars! I then covered them in tissue paper and pretty ribbon. You can also use fabric, but the paper worked very well! Some of the jars I used were not a wide mouth so I fashioned a piece of paper into a funnel. I then attached a recipe card onto the jar so all they have to do is dump the contents into a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
and it all conveniently fit into a wonderful basket! It was quite heavy so it had to be carried from the bottom!
