in the kitchen

I'd already stuck the lasagne in the oven when I realized that my trusty timer has finally gone kaput. It is a digital one, not a manual dial one. I guess for the time (ha!) being I can use one of the countdown websites. I'm game for a new kitchen timer.

Last night I helped a dear friend organize her closet; later she emailed that she and her husband loved the potato-carrot soup I'd brought over. This morning the missionaries came over and were thrilled with the two homemade pumpkin pies I'd baked for them. I realize that the acts of making, eating, and giving meals make me really happy.

So I've been debating as to what to give for holiday gifts: homemade pancake mix? homemade hot cocoa mix? cookies in a jar? What kind of food item would you like to receive as a gift that's easy to make and economical?

This might be a possibility - I know I can get a case of Mason jars at Frager's. Thanks for the tip!

Cocoa is yummy. Cookies are nice if you don't think people will be inundated.

I once received some home-made bread mixes, which was very nice.

That's a nice alternative to cookies - and probably pretty straightforward too. Thanks!

I don't like the stuff in jars because I never get around to making it. Always saving it for a special occasion, you know? And then when a special occasion (involving the right number of people) comes around, then I never remember. I much prefer something that needs to be consumed right away.
