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.

Recently named one of Babble's Top Mom Food Bloggers for 2013!

As the Canned Soup Mom, Maija promises regular recipe posts for meals you can prepare with a toddler wrapped around your leg and a baby in your arms. 

She is a professional work-outside-the-home mom to 3+1 (the +1 being her teenage sister and not her husband). Recently, she’s gone from being a stressed out cop's wife and wanna-be stay-at-home-mom to moving 3,000kms across the country for a job opportunity for her.

Now she brings home ALL the bacon and is still expected to cook it! 

Maija has often said that she is a sometimes food mom which means that in her house there are everyday foods like fruits, veggies and homemade bread (okay once there was homemade bread—but it still counts!) and there are sometimes food like cookies, drive-thru meals and yes even dinners that call for canned soup in the list of ingredients.
