My Friday Finds . . .

Some of the nicest gifts we give to others are the things we make ourselves.  I used to make plates up of Christmas baking to give our friends and neighbours.  This week's Friday Finds is filled with examples of quick, easy and delicious treats we can make and give to others!

There's nothing really new in the kitchen today. I did make Todd an Old Time Bread Pudding, which he enjoyed with custard.  I wasn't feeling really well yesterday.  I think my sugars were out of whack. 
Have a beautiful Friday.  I NEED to finish prepping my lesson today for Sunday! Don't forget!

And I do too!     


  1. I bought a new NW pan to make snowflake cakes as gifts..oh la la what a total disaster! Hardest ever NW mold..not sure I will ever be able to get one out of the many cute ideas here!!

    1. OH, those pans have always been hit and miss with me. My pineapple one works well as do my bundt tins, but the others, hit and miss. xoxo

  2. That Christmas Crack is one of my favorites. So easy to make! It's the time of year to make our traditional favorites. I've not done any baking at all as I'm going to one of my sons for Christmas this year. It's one treat that cannot be beat.

  3. Hi Marie, love all those Christmas treats. It's ice to have them all together. I make Christmas Crack but my fevipe calls them Heath Bars. I'm going to make the Nuts and Bolts for sure and the Oreo Snowmwn are so cute. I'm off for a Christmas lunch with five friends. I'm taking peanut brittle for everyone. I made 3 batches of Peanut Brittle yesterday. Enjoy your day. Hugs, Elaine
