Gifts from the kitchen

Gifts from the kitchen are an excellent way to share something of yourself. They need not be elaborate or contain costly ingredients. They should be a bit out of the ordinary and be something the recipient is not likely to make or already have.

Here are a couple of recipe suggestions:

Spiced & Fruity Tea Mix

This flavorful tea is good hot or cold.

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Store tightly sealed.

Variation:

Follow above recipe, except substitute different flavors for the cherry drink mix such as: strawberry or orange.

Directions for gift card: To serve, stir 2 tablespoons Spiced & Fruity Tea Mix into 8 oz. hot or cold water.

Glazed Pecans

These are very easy, delicious, and take only about 10 minutes to make.

Boil all ingredients 3 to 5 minutes, tossing and stirring. Spread on wax paper to cool. Store in airtight container.
