Santa's Kitchen:Recipes From The Heart

Pine bar

Animated stove

The best gifts always come from both the heart as well as the kitchen.

Baking is twice the fun when you share it with someone else and there is no better time than at Christmas for the family to gather in the kitchen.

 Presenting an assortment of home baked goodies to friends and relatives brightens the day for all of you.     

Once your baking is done, don't stop there. Make your gift even more fun and personal by delivering it in an inventive package that shows some extra thought. Try constructing decorative boxes, or take a look around your house for container ideas. Conventional pans, jars, bowls and baskets  make inexpensive and unusual gifts when filled with confections. Be sure to print out the recipes and include them in your gift package.
