Christmas 2007 December 29, 2007

This year I made a pledge to buy only handmade. Well, I took this pledge one step further and decided to make almost all of the presents that I gave this year.

For my dear Mother I made this apron. I called her the other day and she was already using it!


I made aprons for most of the rest of my family members in New Zealand. Each included an individual hand-written recipe for the recipient. I really want the children in our family to grow up knowing how to cook. I’m not there to cook with them, so i’m hoping this encourages the families to get together and enjoy food.


Our friends in Sydney received hampers full of home made goodies made by me. We packaged up individual parcels to peoples tastes in bamboo steamer baskets and cellophane. Here’s what we made: Hazelnut Panforte, Plum Jam, Chocolate, Fig and Ginger Fruit Mince Pies, Traditional Fruit Mince Pies, Hazelnut Shortbread biscuits, Fruit Tea, Cherries in Vodka, Balsamic Onion Jam, Chocolate Truffles. I didn’t get any photos of our packaged hampers, but they did look great!
