Baking goodies to give as gifts can really help stretch your Christmas budget.

Not only can you give more, but you also get to spend time in the kitchen with your family making new memories each year.

This is what my house smells like right now…

To give as a gift, include a whole orange, whole lemon, cinnamon sticks, cloves and bay leaf and a 3X5 card with the recipe.
