Homemade Gifts in Jars Made with Love

By Paula Deen

I always say the best gifts I ever receive are those made by hand with love. If they’re from the kitchen then even better! I’ve been lucky enough to share many meals in kitchens all across the United States and I can tell you first hand…the kitchen is where the love is.

Last year I offered up all kinds of Gifts From The Kitchen. Gifts to fill a belly, make your skin soft and make your dog happy! Y’all, this year I added seven new recipes and packaged them up in mason jars! Just a ribbon and tag around the rim and your gift of love from the kitchen is ready to go. Share some love this holiday season without breaking the bank.

Paula’s Holiday Gifts in Jars…made with love:
Sweet Tea with Lemon Sugar Scrub
Paula’s Pink Taffy
Cinnamon Star Drawer Sachets
Vanilla Coffee Syrup
Lemon Fig Refrigerator Preserves
Cheesy Dog Treats
Simple S’mores Bars

So enjoy your recipes and fun ways.  I remember so many of your home made items from my past.  Thanks for bring back some of the past ways of giving.

I LOVE the home made gifts your offering. The Pie edge suggestions are GREAT for the holidays.

By the way, the new Paula Deen Restruant at Horseshoe Casino is Wonderful. Food is out of this world.  I won’t be there often, seeing as my resolution is loosing weight, but I’m sure if I’m on a winning streak.. I’ll INDULGE at Deen’s..
Have a wonderful Christmas Holiday Paula.

Imagine the smile on my face when the picture w/this article opened up and not only was my name on one of the labels (Lynn), but right next to it was my son’s name (Brandon).  Brandon is currently on his first deployment w/the US Navy, and will not be at home w/us for Christmas for the first time.  Just wanted you to know this brought a smile to my heart.

Thankyou for the decorative pie edge techniques.  Which brings me to another issue.  I love all types of cheeses except for the Greek feta which is Goats milk.  I know that there are other people that feel the same as I do.  I grew up eating Feta made from Sheeps milk.  It is almost the same taste except much milder.  It is called Bulgarian Feta.  It can be used in the same manner.  Spinach Pie or Pita is much nicer because the Bulgarian Feta does not overwelm the product.  It is a little more expensive but oh so much better tasting.

Anything in a mason jar makes a great gift. It only takes a litte decorating to make it so appealing. I have had success with a homemade hot cocoa mix that included instructions attached with a card on a ribbon.

Wow, every year I make your Peppermint Bark, this year I will do the Simple S’mores Bars as well smile Thank you for this wonderful idea - slowly but surely my friends and family are becoming Paula Deen fans just like myself!

See you on QVC tomorrow smile
