Great stocking stuffers ideas, Amie. You've also given me some ideas for my daughter-in-law's birthday next week. Chocolate with peanut butter is always a winner. Thanks!

How fun!! My faves are the sugar bear and World Central Kitchen.

Thought of this list today as I was obsessing over a maple cutting board. Have you ever done a piece on favorite kitchen items? Not "best chef's knife," but sentimental favorites that you would grab in an emergency, or that would be the first thing to move into a new kitchen. I'm sure many people would say recipe cards. My mom gave me my basic set of pots and pans, just stainless steel, which I've used for two decades - so I'm fond of those. My daughter already has her eye on my Le Creuset, lol. I hope someone cherishes my soup bowls some day, or our square dinner plates (so 80's!). :)

I finally had a chance to make the Three Grain Bread today and do have a photo I can send you. It is a substantial bread. I added a little additional liquid to make it easier to work with. Next up in is the pumpkin cornbread.

Amie— These ideas are amazing. Thank you so much for making this great list and the recipes too. I have a few people in mind that I would love to share your Cook & Tell with for Christmas. (what are the next steps?) OH! and your sweet potato and cranberry casserole was delicious. I made it for dinner tonight. :) The children LOVED it!

I love stockings more than presents too! We always overstuff our kids' stockings. This is a great collection of stuff I may have to treat myself to!

I have and will continue to sing the praises of Cook & Tell! Thank you for such a fun stocking stuffer guide and for including the Recipe Card Calendar in the list 💕 I’m grabbing a couple of the brown sugar bears for stocking stuffers and one for me so I can take those old heels of bread out of my brown sugar 😉 ~ Leigh

I’m definitely making the Festive Nuts from Parade Magazine - my grandfather was publisher of Parade back in the day. And another vote for Paprika - it is the best app!
