 Directions

Package mixes in decorative containers that can be used to prepare or serve
the item, with a pretty tag. BE SURE AND INCLUDE RECIPES FOR PREPARATION!
Some examples:

MAKE-A-MEAL! Fill a picnic basket or pretty collander with Spaghetti
Seasoning Mix, Hot Roll Mix, Creamy Parmesan Dressing Mix, and Basic Cookie
Mix.

GINGERBREAD JOY - A pretty basket or mixing bowl with Gingerbread Mix,
containers of decorations (yogurt-coated raisins, sugar coated candies,
etc), and a few already-made gingerbread boys if you have time. Tie
gingerbread boy and girl cookie cutters on with the bow.

COCOA TIME - Hot Cocoa Mix in a large mug or set of mugs. Put the mix in a
plastic bag inside the mug(s) and tie the bag(s) shut with pretty ribbon.
One of these makes a nice small gift for co-workers, teachers, etc.

COOKIES!!!! Fill a cookie jar with Basic Cookie Mix ~- include as many
recipes as you can come up with and some pretty cookie cutters.

BROWNIES! Arrange brownies on a cutting board with a container of brownie
mix. Cover all with plastic wrap and top with a big bow.

CORNBREAD TIME: A bag of Cornmeal Mix with a crock of honey butter,
perhaps packaged with a corn stick pan. Honey Butter: 1 cup butter,
softened, plus 2 tb Eggbeaters, 1 1/4 cups honey beat with an electric
mixer 10 minutes. Should be refrigerated. Do not use a raw egg yolk in in
this as specified in the original recipe, for the sake of food safety;
Eggbeaters have been pasteurized. Tiny cornsticks with salsa are one of the
latest things to serve as an appetizer; you could package the mix with a
mini-cornstick pan (Williams Sonoma and elsewhere) and a jar of salsa.

PANCAKE HEAVEN: Pancake Mix plus jars of fancy fruit-flavored syrups, on a
griddle.

CAMPER'S/HIKER'S SPECIAL: Homemade granola in a mess kit or other useful
outdoor container.

ITALIAN NIGHT SPECIAL: A tall jar or wide-mouth bottle filled with
spaghetti, plus Spaghetti Sauce Seasoning Mix, Creamy Parmesan Salad
Dressing Mix, some biscotti and a bottle of Chianti.

TACO FEED: A package or two of taco shells plus packages of Taco Seasoning
Mix

SEASONINGS GALORE: A spice rack or basket filled with small bottles of
homemade seasoning mixes. To make a wall hanging, put seasoning mixes in
foil packets or tiny zip-loc bags (available at bead shops), and wrap each
one in a circle of calico print fabric (cut with pinking shears). Tie each
packet with yarn and attach to a strip of braided yarn and hang from a
wooden ring.

"SALAD DAYS" A pretty salad dressing cruet with several packages of
salad dresing mixes.

And so on....it's easy to come up with more ideas if you look through your
mix recipes and think of items with go with them, either when they're
cooked or served or consumed.

Enjoy, and don't forget to make one for me!!
