I try to make my gift-giving heartfelt. This means that my gifts are often also edible and homemade, and I try to stay away from the obvious chocolates, flowers and a card. I want my gift to really tell my mom or my mother-in-law or the new mom down the street that I took a minute and thought about what they would really appreciate for their Mother’s Day.
Here are a few nontraditional food gifts that you can give easily and freely.
1. Sleepin’ In Omelette
2. Chicken Empanadas
3. Frozen Cookie Dough
4. Coconut Almond Granola
5. Homemade Yogurt
6. Cheese Straws
7. Strawberry Rhubarb Butter
8. Pickled & Peppered Asparagus
9. Rosemary Roasted Nuts
