Instead of going for a quick fix like a wine bottle or a box of chocolates when invited over for brunch or lunch at friends, why not try making a giftable food concoctions yourself to make your offering all the more personal?
One such idea for a giftable food would be the super easy and delicious quick bread in a bottle. Not only will it give you the chance to bake but it will also give you a reason to buy those mason jars you wanted so bad. You can also go wild with ingredients and try a different recipe each time -- but we suggest you start with the chocolate chip oatmeal quick bread. After you are done, just add a cute label with the recipe instructions with double-stick tape and you are good to go.
