DIY food gifts you can make this holiday season

Do you get stressed out every year when you  look at the amount of gifts you want to buy? I do. Of course you can start crossing names off of your list, but there are some people who we just want to show a little appreciation, but just cant fit them into the budget.  

If this sounds like you, then I have a few homemade food gift ideas that you can give this season that won't bust the budget.

Garlic Basil Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Garlic Basil Mashed Sweet Potatoes

There are so many sweet potato recipes during the holidays that use extra sugar and things like marshmallows to make already sweet potatoes extra sweet. This recipe takes sweet potatoes in a more savory direction, while still embracing thier natural sweetness.

Cranberry Lime Salsa

Cranberry Lime Salsa

This cranberry lime salsa is perfect for holiday entertaining during this time of year when cranberries are abundant and on sale.

You can make appetizers by topping toasted french bread pieces with cream cheese and the cranberry salsa. You can also use the salsa inside a cranberry turkey wrap or even mix it with sour cream or cream cheese and use it as a dip for pita chips.
