This week: Last minute homemade food gifts, EYBD Previews, giveaways and more

If you are like me, the holidays have arrived far too soon and left us looking for some last minute gifts. Not wanting to face the crowds and online ordering getting close to cut off dates, making a delicious homemade food gift is a life saver.

One of my good friends, Jenni, Pastry Chef Online, has been publishing a food gift idea a day for the last few weeks. Her recipes are so well tested and delicious, so please check out her site, specifically: candy, cookies, and chocolate! Her recipe index also shares condiments, jams and other giftable ideas. A gift of fudge and a prettily wrapped jar of caramel sauce would be a wonderful gift. Bonus – if you ever have any baking questions, Jenni is always available to help. Not only an amazing chef, she is a wonderfully helpful friend to all.

Other ideas for homemade food gifts include:

Lastly, Jamie Oliver will be in the US promoting the release of One: Simple One-Pan Wonders in the States. Our Calendar has been updated this week but events have calmed due to the impending holiday season.
