Give Gifts from your Kitchen

A handcrafted gift from the kitchen is enjoyable to make and even better to receive. Present your love of the kitchen with sweet or savory treats that simply, yet elegantly, join in this season of giving and sharing.


IN THIS ISSUE, we offer six gifts from the kitchen that are easy to make, and sure to be enjoyed by the lucky recipient - Pistachio Sugarplums, Chocolate Truffles, Italian Style Crackers, Glazed Nuts (sweet or spicy), and a Hazelnut Brittle. You'll also find patterns for handcrafted boxes and packaging. We also share our favorite picks for gift giving this year!

Bring a Bag!
Bring a Bag, Feed a Family

We'd like to take this time to THANK YOU for making our Bring a Bag, Feed a Family campaign such a huge success! Since beginning the effort in late 2009, you have helped us raise over $1773.45 for the Greensboro Urban Ministry's Food Bank!

Every time a customer makes a purchase and brings their own shopping bag, a dime is put in the "Feed a Family" cookie jar. The contents of the jar are then donated to the Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank. This allows us to help the environment by using fewer disposable bags, and also help Greensboro's families in need!
