KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, and welcome to Friday Finds! Today it's all about holiday hostess gifts. It about the time when you may have several seasonal parties and functions to attend, and you should never show up empty-handed. The best hostess gift should be something just for the hostess that he or she can use at a later time, either for entertaining or just for themselves. Just because you may have been assigned a side dish or drinks, you should still being along a special hostess gift.

A hostess gift doesn't need to cost a lot. They can range anywhere from $10-$25, and really should be on average $20. There are so many appropriate options in this price range - anything from a set of tea towels to a cookbook, or something gourmet, or even a little bath and body gift. If you need a hostess gift for a party or dinner this holiday season, you can't go wrong with one of the picks below.


This first one is my favorite, because it's a versatile multi-use item, and it's so chic. …

Mini Apple Crisps



I love an old-fashioned apple pie, but I don't always have the time to make a crust from scratch. An apple crisp or crumble is a delicious and fast way to make a rustic apple dessert.

I like to make mine in single-serving bakeware. It's so cute and perfect for dinner parties. I've been making crisps a lot the last few Falls, and I think I've finally perfected my topping recipe. It's so simple and delicious, and it's perfect for Fall. You can use the crust recipe for any kind of fruit crumble. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do.
