LITTLE GIFTS OF CHRISTMAS LOVE

 
It's only natural that some of my Christmas Gifts would be from my kitchen, since that's where I pitch my tent most of the time.
 
With so many persimmons to work with, loaves of Persimmon Bread are the main part of my goodies this year.  I'm adding different things to make then a variety, i.e. chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, nuts, coconut....and always with drizzle.
 
Also I had an abundance of walnuts this year so candied walnuts have been a hit with friends and family.
 
Also, it's nice to have a little "Treat" to give those friends that drop in or when we're invited out.

  1. Next year I really must get with it and make a plan to do such things. I have never heard of Persimmon bread. Is it sweet? Sour?
    You are an artist and have such a gift for making lovely things. I feel sure your visitors leave your home just feeling good.

    1. It's really sweet. Very much like Banana bread. The fruit really isn't tart. For me, these kinds of gifts are more fun that hitting the crowds for shopping. I do as little of that as possible.

  2. The walnuts sound good! I found a recipe for spicy pecans that I want to try. And yes, it's always nice to have a few little things to give...they just say 'love'! :)

    1. I wish I could eat "spicy" but tummy won't let me. I think I will candy some pecans and I've never tried almonds either.

  4. Everything sounds yummy, except that I can't wrap my mind around persimmon bread. I just have no clue what persimmons should taste like. I think maybe I will have to buy one sometime and find out.

  6. I've never heard of persimmon bread but I can imagine how wonderful it is. I am looking for some time to make dough to freeze, then I'm all set to make cookies when I find 5 minutes! lol!

    1. Making dough ahead of time is so helpful when the "Rush" is on. I need to make some cookies soon. Jar is empty. HaHa
