Allergy Friendly Candy Bars
Whether you handwrite recipes or print them out they should be easy to read. Do not print recipes in a cursive font. Will your gift or gifts include samples? If you share cookie recipes your gift may include a dozen cookies. Bread recipes may include a loaf of French bread. Jam and jelly recipes may include a sample in a decorative jar. At this time of year cooking supply manufacturers produce holiday jars decorative lids and tins. Do you need to credit a cookbook author or relative? This is a precautionary measure and you may not have to do it. Still its nice to credit a family member or friend. You may credit the person in the title such as Aunt Ediths All Beef Meatloaf. Its my understanding that making three changes to a recipe title measurement ingredients make the recipe yours. Are you going to add something extra? You may put a collection of slow cooker recipes in a new cooker. Candy recipes may be packaged in a candy dish or jar. Casserole recipes may include a lasagna pan. When I made cookbooks for family members I included a rubber spatula with each one. Once you start thinking about extras you will come up with dozens of ideas. Dieting is never easy but with the growth of the internet its definitely become easier. You dont have to sit around flipping through book after book to find a good recipe.
This may be a silly reflection but highlights the points mentioned above. When I was growing up I could not stand the taste of cauliflower. I saw no purpose for this food. To me it was a useless vegetable that took up space on our planet. I am not joking! Later when I actually worked in a supper club one of the appetizers we served was deep fried cauliflower with a side of cheese sauce. Ever since then cauliflower has become one of my favorite foods and in all of the traditional ways from raw to steamed and I still love the deep fried method as well. If it were not for that deep fried recipe I may never have had the pleasure of enjoying this healthy and now tasty food. I think it is important to recognize Restaurants themselves whether they be a fast food independent mom and pop big chain type or even 5 star all bring in millions of people every day across our nation.
Remember earlier I mentioned that 49% of the dollar spent on food is shared in the restaurant industry? That is a lot of dough that one can save! Money or the spending of it is actually how and why I began to take note of these restaurant imitation recipes. I have been reviewing our family spending habits and when looking at groceries vs. dining I was actually pretty shocked. Dining out has become a habit for us and while it is one that we do enjoy it is also one that has been adding up significantly. This is what started that flickering of the old light bulb for myself and my family. I consider myself to be in that DIY group of people on a number of things and while I have come to enjoy doing many things myself (Not all of the time mind you.) I realize the impact of learning how to do something yourself can and has saved me a good amount of money.
