I received a very sweet gift all the way from Prague! Czecho-Cherokee sent me some homemade tomato-chili jam and homemade peach-apricot-plum jam. I also received a jar of Czech honey, two Czech chocolate bars, and some really yummy chocolate and coconut biscotti! My husband has been stealing a lot of the biscotti, but I’m hiding the chocolate bars so I can enjoy every last bit of them to myself  :)  Thank you so much, Czecho-Cherokee!

Boston has been (brrrr!) chilly, but I can pretend I am basking in a sun-filled spot thanks to the wonderful box of tropical (and sweet) delights from allstar379. She went to Hawaii over the holidays, and I am the lucky recipient of two types of macadamia cookies, macadamia nut seasoning (can’t wait to mix it with panko and try it on fish), and macadamia nuts. The peeps, peppermint bark, and pumpkin spice bread are sure to add a touch of warmth during these cold winter days. So very grateful for her thoughtfulness and the fantastic goodies.

I received the most lovely Food52 SWAP package from Mile High Lori!  Everything was from scratch and organic.  Bourbon sea salt caramels, pumpkin bread, cranberry cookies, pumpkin granola, white chocolate cookies and beautiful hand sewn napkins.   The best of all was the handmade soaps that read “just add water”!   The gift that keeps on giving!

My gifter Allison Cloyd sent a lovely box of homemade goodies, including fudge, gingersnaps, and citrus sugar cookies. Delicious! The festive recipe cards and box of sea salt caramels were greatly appreciated too. She also made adorable knitted ornaments. Thanks Allison!
