I never get anything homemade :( It seems like, around here, no one but me bakes gifts for the holidays anymore! I’d LOVE to get anything homemade – instead, I have to show up at potluck parties and hang out by the food table all night to get my fill. LOL

My only problem with this is finding the jars. The only place I bought them closed down. Is there a retail chain that sells them?

Laurie, you can find a nice selection of canning jars, including the pretty cut preserves jars, at Walmart. Many grocery stores will have a small selection as well.

I got my jars on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000A387YI?ie=UTF8&tag=unsophisticook-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000A387YI. They have a lot of choices there. Also, my grocery store (Smith’s) has Ball canning jars at the end of the baking isle. Hope that helps!

I got mine at WalMart as well. They have them in the section with Kitchen tools. Hope this helps

I always give homemade gifts and everyone loves them! Each year I make Chocolate Truffles, Cookies, Banana Bread and Zucchini Bread . . . People really appreciate it when they receive them, especially since it is a lost art! Merry Christmas everyone, bake up some love for your Family and Friends, they will never forget it! ~ Candy Darr

Do you have this home made pancake mix recipe on the website? I see the idea for it in gift jars, just not the actually recipe.

I am new to the site, and a bit lost. Love it though!

Thanks for the help.

Hi Phyllis! I actually haven’t posted my recipe using the homemade Bisquick mix yet. You can find the recipe for the gift jar mix here: http://www.goodlifeeats.com/2010/12/kitchen-gift-homemade-pancake-mix-jars.html and I’m planning to post my recipe early next week, so check back for that as well.
