This may be a better post for the food board, but I thought I'd start here.
My youngest brother who is 25 is in the process of buying a house. He and his girlfirend have modest incomes, and neither knows how to cook. They've never been out on their own before, so I want to get a thoughtful gift for them for Christmas, but we ourselves are on limited means at the moment. My mom has already gotten them a large set of pots and pans for the house. I was thinking today that since neither of them knows how to cook well, I would get them a crock pot and do several gift in a jars for them. Luckily we are driving from Texas to Michigan for christmas, so I can easily make them ahead of time and take them with us instead of worrying about the expense of shipping them. They will not be moving into teh house until January some time, so I thought this was a good idea. Any thoughts, any good websites or recipes you've used in the past for these types of gifts?? I will probably do at least one or two desserts, but I wanted to focus more on soups and simple things they don't have to put a lot of effort into. My brother works with my dad and they leave the house around 5:30 a.m. and arrive home around 5:30 p.m., and all I know about her is that she babysits her cousin's two kids during the day, one of which is autistic. She is the youngest of 3 girls, around 21 years old, and my brother is the youngest, at 25, they aren't moving far from my parents, but I know my parents are definitely excited about having the last one of us 3 kids out of the house finally. LOL!
