This week Chef Tess had another amazing class in Chandler, AZ. It was a Holiday Mix Making Class and what wonderful ideas she had! All I can say….your neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc. are going to LOVE you this holiday season! And really, these ideas can be used year around for ALL Holidays, including Birthday presents!!
Here is a quick review of her class:

  • Why make mixes?

They are budget friendly, creative gifts to give (and receive), you choose what goes in them, saves time and may help a friend or neighbor with their food storage. Not to mention, they do make up delicious meals or snacks!
  • How do you package mixes?

Lots of creative, useful ideas!
