7 Quick and Delicious Food Gifts From Your Kitchen

Favourite Holiday Food Gifts To Give - and Receive

I consider myself lucky to have so many great friends, colleagues, and neighbours and during the holidays I want to let each of them know that I am thinking of them. It’s impossible (and costly) to buy every single one of them a gift but I love being able to leave something homemade on their desks or door steps to let them know we wish them a Merry Everything at this time of year.

These recipes are my go-to favourites. They have been made, tasted, perfected and gifted many times and because of how easy they are every recipe is Canned Soup Mom approved!

The Five Easiest Cookies You Can Bake For Christmas

When I put this list together, however, I must have been all hopped-up on sugar from the baking because my math is off—consider this a Top Six or a Top Five with Bonus list of what I am sure will become your favourite holiday food gifts too.

 Maija is a busy mom to three busy children – children who insist on eating every day. Between shuttling kids to dance or cheer practice, tae kwon do, hockey, or baseball, she often finds herself in the kitchen looking at three hungry children (and a husband) and a clock ticking towards dinner time. 

Working a fulltime job from home with three kids under 12 means Maija often runs her household with a phone in one hand and a wooden spoon in the other, so she appreciates quick, healthy meals, prepared on a budget – and that’s what she delivers at both maijasmommymoments.com and on YummyMummyClub.ca as Canned Soup Mom.
 
Her simple-to-prepare recipes have become the go-to meals for thousands of families, and Maija was recently named one of the Top Mom Food Bloggers in North America and given #2 honours in the budget-friendly recipes category. 
 
Maija loves to travel especially #CanadaWithKids adventures, with the goal of taking her family to all the Canadian provinces and territories within the next five years. The kids are on-board with these plans, and only partially because Maija keeps a mean supply of delicious treats in her travel kit.
