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. …

No-Bake Banana Cream Pie in A Jar


Making a homemade pie crust is time consuming, and sometimes I just don't feel like going to the trouble. My no-bake banana cream pie in a jar is an easy last-minute holiday dessert. The graham cracker crumbs that replace the traditional crust in this dessert gives it holiday flavor, and making the pie in single-serving jars makes it easier to serve a crowd.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (approx. 15 graham crackers)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Make the banana pudding first so it can chill in the fridge while you prep the rest of the ingredients.

2. If you're making homemade whipped cream, go ahead and make that too so it can also chill and set up.

3. Slice the bananas and set aside.

4. Use food processor to crumb the graham crackers. (You can also place them in a sealed plastic bag and beat the crap out of them with a rolling pin. This is my preferred method of choice!) Set aside.

5. Using a spoon, layer in each jar the graham cracker crumbs, then a layer of banana slices, then the pudding, then the whipped cream. Repeat layers one more time and garnish top with a few graham cracker crumbs. Cover with lids and refrigerate until ready to serve. You can prep the ingredients several days in advance and assemble the dessert the night before or day of. Enjoy!

  4. Yum! We love banana cream pie and it hadn't occurred to me to do it this way. I love using jars because it's easy to create individual portions…otherwise we have a tendency to eat pie right out of the baking dish until half of it's gone. Easy to make this recipe low fat, too. Def stealing this one!
