I like sharing the joy of Christmas with my family, friends, and neighbors. For me, it is not about the size of the gift, but rather it is the thought that counts.
I came across a recipe for stained glass cookies in a South African magazine and decided to make some of these. Afterwards I packed a few of them into cellophane bags, tied a ribbon around the neck of each bag and made a nice bow. If I added something small, like a chocolate or small tube of hand cream, at least I will still be able to share the joy of Christmas without overextending my budget.
So, have a look at the treasures hiding in your kitchen, you might just be surprised!

This Christmas, gifts to friends will be from my kitchen. Homemade jams, home canned spaghetti sauce for my pasta loving friends, and chicken soup to get them through the cold and flu season!
