Gifts Worth Giving

By Michelle Plummer

Receiving gifts during the holidays is an exciting time!  Homemade gifts are even more anticipated.  Over the past year I have shared many of my personal recipes and this month I provided a few more to make your table shine or your gifts relished.  I always want to make my gifts the ones that will be the envy of my friends.  This year I have hit the jackpot!

The Cherry Relish is divine on everything from pork to oatmeal and the Boursin cheese while the original is luscious, this is one that will rival it and at a portion of the cost.

May all of your holidays be warm and delightful with great friends and good food!
