You can pretty much throw anything into a basket and it immediately becomes a gift – well…maybe not ANYTHING, but you know what I mean!
I am a big fan of gift baskets as a hostess present, so a few weeks ago when I attended a luncheon at a friend’s house, I jumped at the opportunity to create a homemade gift basket featuring a few new recipes and of course some creative stamping!
For the basket, I did something that I’d never done before – I baked homemade bread, made butter and whipped up some homemade strawberry preserves! Yep – that’s right – this city girl channeled her inner Laura Ingalls Wilder and I’m loving the result!
Check it out…
I was completely beside myself when the bread came out of the oven and actually looked.like.bread! And it tasted delish too! Just call me Martha!
And just in case you’re interested, here are links to each of the recipes I used for this gift basket.
