    Hi Kelly,

    I was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia.
    As for gifts in a jar, one year I did a meal in a jar, (chili, corn bread, salad dressing for salad, ice tea and a dessert.
    They enjoyed it when it came their way.

    Hi Carolyn,



    As for the packaging for the gifts in a jar, what I did was packed it in ziploc bags, but the clincher was I used Christmas fabric and made gift bags-you can find cloth bags at some of the dollar or craft stores- and wrapped it.



    Take care,



    Marie Elene

    <FONT face="Arial" color="#0000ff">This is great, thanks for the site. I checked out the one with the Chili mix, there is no recipe to put with the chili mix, just a recipe for Chili mix 2 which looks like a big amount made for that one. What would you add to the first chili mix to make it chili? I am sure tomatoes and ground meat, but there is not posted to put with the mix in the basket.

    Hi Debbie,

    When I did the meals in a basket/package, it was the dried ingredients that made up the mix, all you had to add was the wet ingredients. I did a couple different meals that I sent to family living out of state and they loved it.

    Take care,
