Jar Gift Recipes to Collect- Part 3 of a Series

September 25th, 2007 at 10:37 pm

How about healthy part-whole wheat to warm up this winter?

This is the next 'Mix in a Jar' recipe for an inexpensive gift you can make yourself. Great for the teacher, coach, young baker, hair dresser, neighbor, and others this year.

More great easy recipes in the 'Handmade' section of this blog and more coming for you to collect and make later this year. Some of the recipes are my own originals, some are credited to others. All lean to the healthy diet, I prefer to avoid heavy sweets and fats. Enjoy!

Remember - Early Planning Saves Money
