Advent Calendar Day 16 – Homemade Mixes

One of my favorite gifts to give to friends, teachers and the likes is homemade mixes in a jar. They are easy to customize for each person and always well received. A few years ago when I was working an office job, I made instant potato soup mix in jars and gave them to my coworkers. They kept the soup mix in their desk and had a quick lunch or snack they could fix in the break room. They were well received and I got refill requests throughout the year.

Hillbilly Housewife Advent Calendar Day 16For today’s advent treat, I’d like to share my Homemade Mixes Kindle Cookbook with you. It’s a free download on Amazon. Browse through it and see if you get some ideas for quick and inexpensive gifts in a jar. And remember to use it throughout the year.  Not only will you save by not buying convenience foods, these mixes are also better for you since there are no added preservative and you know exactly what’s going in them.
