Gifts from the Heart
When I think of homemade gifts, I instantly think of homemade jams and jellies, cookies and spiced nuts. Lucy Baker goes way beyond those gifts in Edible DIY.
Beyond the Standard Edible Gifts
Lucy Baker has recipes for flavored salts, homemade potato chips and dark chocolate-dipped orangettes. Having already shown her taste for everything alcoholic in her earlier cookbook, The Boozy Baker, she's included the tasty gifts of flavored bourbons, gins and vodkas. She doesn't even stop at offering recipes for gift-giving, but she also includes ways to package these homemade goodies in Edible DIY.
If you're someone who needs an excuse for buying this book, I've got one for you. Everyone of us has at least one person in our life who is often giving homemade gifts. Typically, these gifts are are for a specific reason, and sometimes they are for "just because". They will be thrilled with this cookbook. You'll be pleased too, especially if your one the the many recipients. If you're one of the gift-givers, you deserve this book. Think of all of the people who will benefit from it.
