Week of Gift Giving, Day 3: Homemade Gifts for Cooks
I really appreciate gifts I can use in the kitchen. I spend so much of my time thinking about what I'm going to cook and then even more time actually cooking, that anything that makes my time in the kitchen more enjoyable is a very thoughtful gift. To see each project, click on the title, or go to my Pinterest board Homemade Gift Ideas for Cooks to see photos and access all the tutorials at once.

Dish cloths are a great beginner knitting project and are a great gift when paired with soaps.

Gifts for the Kitchen Wall
This is such a clever idea. Is there a special recipe handed down through the family? Turn it into wall art. Does it include a secret ingredient? Black that line out to keep those not in the know guessing!
