 Since I've been doing crafts again...I'm making lots of Christmas signs to give as gifts. There are so many great ideas out there...what about making up gift baskets that go with the person?

My stepdad is getting a coffee basket with lots of sweets in it...He got one last year and loved it. My neice just moved into her own apartment and needs EVERYTHING...but I'm making her a baking basket with baking sheets, pot holders, utensils and some cookie mixes...Everything will come from the Dollar Tree!

 christmas signs?? tell me more :)  gift baskets are a good idea.. I normally do something more actually "made" though. like crafted, painted etc.. so the signs are sparking my interest

This year I'm going to make peppermint hot chocholate from scratch & put the ingredients in mason jars. I'm planning to decorate the mason jars too!

     Dog Biscuits:

    Dog Biscuit Recipe - Courtesy of Falcon888 (about 200)

    3 ½ cups all purpose flour
    2 cups whole-wheat flour
    1 cup rye flour
    1 cup cornmeal
    2 cups cracked wheat (bulgar)
    ½ cup nonfat dry milk
    1 tablespoon salt (or less)
    1 package dry yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warn water (105 - 115 degrees)
    1 pint chicken stock (or Swanson's chicken broth)
    1 egg, beaten, mixed with 1 tablespoon milk

    In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients. Add the dissolved yeast and the chicken stock or other liquid. Mix together. Knead for about three minutes into a stiff dough. Roll the dough into 1/4" sheets. Cut with cookie cutters. Place on baking sheet. No need to let rise. Place directly into a 300 degree oven for 45 minutes, turn off heat and leave overnight.

    If your dog has a sweet tooth, add sugar, honey, or molasses. If on a salt free diet, omit salt. Add vitamins if needed. Add additional eggs or butter if desired. Price is roughly 30 cents a pound.
