People love to make (and get) homemade food gifts. It shows your creativity and that you care enough to spend time making something special. Holiday cookie exchanges are also fun and popular and a great way to get a variety of goodies without having to make them all yourself.
However, the food safety alarms in my head are going off! First off (I’ve said this before), just because a recipe is on the Internet, Pinterest or television does not make it safe! Choose only safe, tested recipes from research-based resources when creating homemade gifts.
