Hey-ho Saturday/Epiphany Peeps!
Having dealt with Christmas and New Year’s, The shops are straight onto Valentine’s and Easter. Think you’ve had enough food? Ne too, but by Valentine’s I might be tempted. So I thought I’d share some recipes that can be used as gifts for any holiday/special occasion.
Jenny at This Tiny Blue House shared this Valentine’s Truffles recipe yesterday…wow! I’d happily receive any of those 30 types (yes 30!) for any reason!
I also saw these cookies from What’s For Dinner Moms. They are Christmas ones but she (quite rightly) says she isn’t going to confine them to the run-up to Christmas….these would make a great gift/treat for guests whenever!
Food gifts don’t have to be sweet treats, giving someone a meal can be a great way to help and bless them. I love Chilli and this veggie one from Simply Recipes would be a great one to give to literally anyone. (I’ll have 2 if you’re offering!) 🙂
Along the same lines, the Chicken Tortellini Soup from Andrea‘s site Cooking With a Wallflower would be a great gift meal…especially for people who’ve been ill or as a quick meal for new parents.
My Gift Recipe staples are:
- Spiced Blueberry Jam or Apple Jam
- Pear and Walnut Chutney, possibly with some Cheese Straws
- Any of these recipes containing Chocolate Chips (from other bloggers)
- Or even a basic Sponge cake
So that’s enough to be getting on with, but rest assured there are many, many more.
