    Yum! I’ve been trying to figure out what to do for neighbor gifts this year since I really don’t have time to bake. This is perfect! About how many mason jars will the above recipe fill?

    At night when I couldn’t fall asleep as a kid, my mom would warm up milk for me. I’d drink it and within minutes I’d be sleeping. I cannot wait to gather all the ingredients and try your spin on warm milk on Christmas Day, opening presents with the kids and hubby at my mom’s house sitting in front of the fire place. I love looking at your weekly recipes and learning how to incorporate veggies for my family. Congrats on the new bundle of joy!
