Need a good gift for a bridal shower? Kitchenware is nearly always a hit, but without recipes, how useful is it? Next time you give a cooking-related gift, try this presentation: Purchase a pie plate - a fancy ceramic one, one made of glass, or even a tin one - and line it with a pretty fabric or paper napkin or a dish towel. Then fill it with the (dry) ingredients for your favorite pie recipe: a small bag of flour, tins of cinnamon and nutmeg, some fresh apples, and, of course, the recipe. To keep everything in place wrap the pie plate in some tulle and tie it at the top with a pretty ribbon. Viola!!
