    Default Coming holidays ideas

    Sorry if I am post in "http://www.cookingjunkies.com/food-cooking-discussion/" category, but I am think it's the most suitable.
    Stay not long time before christmas and happy new years holidays. I am have big famaly and now I am even not know what kind of gifts make to my friends and famaly.
    So my kids, husband, siters, brother and my and husban's parents.
    Who also don't know what to present to they? What gifts (not expensive) I can present to my famaly? Any ideas?
    What your friends and parent get from you on christmas?
    Thank you!

    Hi Rebekka,

    This year I did something completely different for Christmas gifts. I made home made gift baskets and put in homemade treats. Cookies, shortbread, mince tarts, jam, jelly, smoked salmon, beef jerky and pickles. The looks when they open the boxes will be priceless, I gave each one something special, and a homemade card.

    While not a gift idea, here is something that will blow the minds of those of legal drinking age:

    This is the perfect Holiday drink. I think this is the drink equivalent to comfort food. It's a comfort drink. The fact that the drink is warmed plus the rum just warms the body all over.

    2 cups of firmly-packed brown sugar
    1 stick butter
    1 pinch salt
    3 sticks cinnamon
    6 cloves
    1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

    2 cups rum (more if you like)
    Topping: Whipped cream, ground nutmeg

    Directions:

    1. Put all ingredients (except rum and topping) in a crock pot and add 2 quarts of water.
    2. Stir well to dissolve sugar.
    3. Set crock on low for 5 hours - stirring a few times throughout the process.
    4. After 5 hours add the rum. If you add the rum at the beginning the alcohol will evaporate out.
    5. At this point just stir in the rum and get the mixture back up to heat.
    6. Use a ladle to put the Hot Buttered Rum into cups, add a dollop of whipped cream and grate some fresh nutmeg onto the whipped cream. An extra stick of cinnamon in each cup is a nice touch too.


    I'm telling you, if you take this to a holiday party you will be loved and adored by your friends and relatives. And if you serve this at a holiday party you are hosting your entire place will just ooze with the scent of the holiday season. This is better than any holiday potpourri on the market.
