Want healthy meals your kids will love?

Edible Gifts


Homemade gifts are such a wonderful way to show your friends and family that you care about them during the holiday season. In my home, I try to make our lives more simple by getting rid of stuff, and not accumulating new stuff.  If the house starts to get messy and cluttered, I know we have too many things.  Your family will be healthier and happier with less stuff to clutter their minds and lives. Giving consumable gifts is a great way to avoid putting your loved ones in the same position! Go beyond cookies with these thoughtful gifts that everyone will love!

Homemade Vanilla

Homemade vanilla extract makes such a difference in baked goods- and it could not be easier to make! Tied together with a festive hand towel it makes a thoughtful and beautiful gift.

Infused Oils

Infused oils are a great way to add fantastic flavor to gifts- and something that everyone on your list will be excited to receive.
