Sew, Mama Sew!

My previous post was featured on Sew, Mama Sew! today much to my surprise!

For those of you interested in the homemade marshmallows there was an article in a Martha Stewart magazine last year that gave a recipe for them. Well, her recipe had eggs in it, I personally didn't want to use eggs, so I searched for another recipe and happened upon this... http://www.cookingforengineers.com/recipe/106/Marshmallows
It is so user friendly and makes the greatest marshmallows!! I decided to make a few flavor modifications and a had several different kinds of marshmallows. You will never want a store bought marshmallow again after you try these!! Just think a nice hot cup of cocoa with a peppermint vanilla marshmallow...yummy!

Oh and the picture was taken by my two and a half year old. One of the best photos ever taken of me! (Or at least one of my favorites!)

Holiday Meme

Sounds fun. I always love answering those questionnaire kind of things!

Do you have a favorite gift that you love to give?
I love to make gift baskets of homemade goodies! Last year I gave gifts baskets filled with marshmallows, hot cocoa mix, cookies and chocolate dipped pretzels, all handmade by me!

This year, I plan on changing it a wee bit to include little apple cider mixes that are in a little pouch that I've made to look like an apple! (Photos of those to come soon!)

What do you like least about the holiday season?
All the commercial glitz. Doesn't any one remember what the real meaning of Christmas is? Seriously, break our your dictionary and look at the definition... Does it say anything like Christmas is the annual holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus? How many people actually remember that or even know that?
