It was cookies last year but I definitely need to pick my game up after seeing what's achievable. Sugared Cranberries are top of the list to try.

Lots of good ideas! I am canning pasta sauce after an idea I saw last year (Giada I think)... and homemade marshmallows are already made!

Every year I make something from the kitchen to give to my friends and family. I am known to give make your own cookies or cakes in a jar, where I take the dry ingredients to make cookies or cake and make them look pretty in a mason jar. Another favorite is my famous Peppermint biscotti, placed in a mason jar with ribbon!
