The countdown to Christmas is on and very few cookies encapsulate the holiday season as well as classic gingerbread! We brought your our special Whole Wheat Low-Sugar Gingerbread Cookie recipe last year and this year, we're delivering the classic gingerbread recipe that has been warming household ovens for many a holiday season.
One of the best parts of Christmas is making and receiving hand-made gifts. To help you with last minute ideas, I've put together a lovely list of DIY ornaments and gifts for you to make and give this year. Nothing says love like a homemade gift from the heart!
Are your holidays filled with family gatherings? While they’re always guaranteed to make you smile, they can also be super stressful when it comes to the cooking part. Most of the time, your food doesn’t all cook at the same temperature, so you can’t make everything at once in the oven. Generally by the time the main entrée is done, the sides are cold. So you end up microwaving things to warm them up, and then they get all rubbery and dry.
When my hubby made his famous Italian meatballs for work for his holiday party (see photos,) we found the perfect solution for keeping the food warm and for presenting it in lovely manner!

We are very selective about the products featured each year in order to bring Rural Mom Readers quality ideas for holiday gift giving.
Our promise to you: If it's not a gift we wouldn't love to see under our own trees or personally gift to a loved one, you will not find it in any RuralMom.com holiday guide. We do not accept payment for placement of items in our guides. If it made it to our top holiday gift pick list, it's earned a spot based on its high quality, reasonable price point, and overall excellence in durability and/or functionality.
We hope you enjoy our gift selections and find the perfect presents for your loved ones! Just click on the gift guide picture to see the full guide and product descriptions... and enjoy your holiday shopping!
