It’s that time of the year again when Claire from Claire K Creations organises a Foodie Secret Santa for all those wanting to be involved.
I was happy to once again be participating. As I did last year, I made cranberry sauce and cherry chutney as the gifts for my recipients. The bloggers my gifts went to were all women I have previously not met in cyberland so it was lovely to make some new connections. They are…
Sharon from Wee Love Baking;
Roxanne from The Baking Dentist; and
Bryton from Food in Literature.
Posting glass jars does make me nervous, especially when one of the packages did have to go to the other side of Oz, so I was very relieved to hear my jars of condiments arrived without catastrophe.
In return I received the following gifts…
Claire from Claire K Creations posted me a jar of macadamia dukkah. I do love dukkah on Turkish bread dipped in olive oil and it makes either a great snack or an appetiser to enjoy with a glass of wine.
Cassandra from Cassie Cakes posted me a tissue-lined box filled with individually wrapped pieces of eggnog fudge. I loved the individual wrapping and how the eggnog flavour is so Christmasy. The fudge smells divine and it’s very soft and melt-in-the-mouth. This has been a very popular after-dinner snack.
Sharon from Wee Love Baking posted me a handy container beautifully packaged with a variety of treats covered in green tissue. Lifting the tissue I found this gorgeous fox cookie that had been iced so precisely and perfectly I was immediately impressed with Sharon’s talent.
Removing the next layer of tissue I found some festively decorated double chocolate chip cookies. And who doesn’t love a double chocolate chip cookie!
And at the bottom of the container was a jar of earl grey infused salted caramel sauce. I haven’t tried the sauce yet but the name alone has me in love with it.
Thanks Claire for organising this year’s Foodie Secret Santa; it’s been a great opportunity to be introduced to some new and generous and very talented bloggers, and I’ve received some very thoughtful and delightful gifts that above all, traveled well!
Thank you Secret Santas for my gifts.
