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.


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.
