Hello and welcome to “Homemade for Friends!”
Are you someone who loves to do nice things for others? If so, then one of the sweetest things you can do is make them something!
As a professionally trained chef in New York City, I find the best thing about cooking is that it gives you the ability to create a moment of happiness for someone else. And in my constant quest to come up with new and delicious dishes, my favorite part is developing unique items that are completely giftable and easy for anyone to make at home. Because of this, I built “HomemadeForFriends.com” to share these recipes and ideas for food gifts, so that you too can join in on the fun.
Unless otherwise noted, I’ve created, photographed and tested every recipe several times on multiple guinea pigs (aka friends and family who have been selected for their pickiness gene) to ensure that every goodie maintains a high standard of:
– fail-proof instructions
– inspiration on how to turn the item into a fantastic gift
Whether you are looking to find a great gift for a hostess, create a party favor, send a care package, or just to tell someone that you’re thinking about them, it is my hope that this website will inspire you to make something special for others. I’ll be posting many new recipes each week that are in-line with the seasons and holidays, so be sure to stop by often (or subscribe to it so that you never miss a new post!).
In the meantime, enjoy the site, and most importantly the best part of its goal: to make someone’s day.
PS: If you have any thoughts or ideas, please drop me a line in the comments section or by email at homemadeforfriends(at)gmail(dot com). I would love to hear from you!
