    With the holiday just a week away, I am sure, if you are like me, you still have a handful of last minute gifts to take care of. I always promise myself I won’t leave anything until till the last minute, and yet here I am, one week out with a few final gifts left to get. Thankfully, I have always loved the idea of handmade gifts, the personal touch and the thoughtfulness and these gifts can be made right up until the last moments before the actual holiday. Enter my Grain-free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar!! Because cookies are always a great idea, especially when someone else does half the work for you. If you get lucky, whoever you gift this mix to, they’ll have you over for dessert, when they bake them.

    How-to Make Hot Cocoa Mix

    With the holidays upon us, it’s time once again that I share with you some of my favorite, simple homemade holiday gifts. This wintertime staple is a quintessential way to deal with the frosty cold weather. This homemade version is made with only a few, all-natural ingredients and the bonus to making it yourself, besides the obvious, is the free reign to add whatever you’d like to it. If you like less sweet, opt for unsweetened chocolate, looking for a little more sweetness try bitter or semisweet chocolate instead. You can add cinnamon or cayenne or any other flavors you’d like (see the bottom of the post for flavor variations). Today I am sharing my recipe for a basic hot cocoa mix with a few suggestions at the end for extra add-ins, as well as a free printable label for you to print out, customize and add to your gift.

    There’s nothing like giving the gift of tasty treats, made with love this time of year, but especially cozy, heart-warming decadence like this homemade Hot Cocoa Mix. Rich and luxurious without being excessively sweet. Download the included printable, customizable label, throw in some mini marshmallows, this is a great recipe if you want to make your own. Package it all up in a cute jar, include a tablespoon tied with a little ribbon or string and voila, the perfect holiday gift.

  3. Curry Popcorn Snack Mix

    Curry Popcorn Snack Mix

    As far as my husband is concerned, no summer road trip is complete without some popcorn. Though if he had it his way, he’d be eating popcorn daily. This man and his stomach of steel LOVE popcorn and he constantly begs me to make it for him. Left to his own devices in a previous life, I have a feeling he would select some of that electric orange colored “cheese”-flavored stuff at the gas station, so this is a perfect compromise.

    Curry Popcorn Snack Mix

    Though popcorn and I (aka my digestion), we don’t always see eye-to-eye, I am very aware that not everything has to revolve around me and my eating, so when it comes to creating road trip snacks I try to be a team player and bring a little for everyone. This popcorn creation is the perfect example of just that. A snack created with my tastes in mind, so I can sample a small amount and be happy, but still something that will make hubby (and any others along for the travels) happy. While he snacks away in the drivers seat on this popcorn mix, I’ll be crunching away on my Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips and we are both content.

    I actually packed this snack mix for a recent drive to Santa Barbara when my parents were in town. As we headed of to wine country, the inside of car sounded as if we had a crew of squirrels chomping away, everyone was so furiously munching on this stuff! I’d say that’s a win.
