It’s All In The Packaging

Author:  Autumn (Janette)

Normally we share a favorite recipe on Fridays, but we figure you are all too busy to try something new.  So, today I am showing you the treats I delivered this week to our new neighbors and people who have done special things for us throughout the year.

First, I made five kinds of cookies, including Jordan’s macaroons (recipe here) and also Grandma’s peanut butter fudge (recipe here).  While everything was cooling, I assembled the bakery boxes I ordered this fall from here.

I lined them with waxed tissue paper.

Then I started filling them with goodies.

Next, came a tag and ribbon.

Only five more to go.

If you don’t want to go the box route when packaging treats for friends and family, another easy approach is to buy cute plates at the one of the dollar stores.  It’s nice to have these things on hand so that you will always be prepared to deliver a food gift or take something to a pot luck.

So, there you have it.

Jordan in Syracuse and I here in Kentucky wish all of you, dear friends, a wonderful holiday season.  Come back next week.  We have so many new visitors that we are going to repost some of our favorite blog entries from this, our first year in blog land.

Take care and peace be with you.

    Just taking a break, up here, from cooking early this morning. The lights are lit on the tree and a fire is blazing, and it is still dark outside. Very cosy, indeed! I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
