Peach Muffins & Bread Warmer Hostess Gift

Join me today as I share my tasty Peach Muffins & Bread Warmer Hostess Gift idea to get you ready for the holidays!


Happy Fall Y’all, we just started to get some cooler weather and the leaves have just now started to fall. So now it really has begun to feel like the proper season around here. Today I am sharing a down home southern recipe of Peach Muffins & Bread Warmer Hostess Gift. The bread warmer  makes such a sweet little hostess gift for this holiday season if you are traveling to others homes to share a meal, I know I love mine.

Bread Basket Gift Idea JENRON DESIGNSI am going to start by talking a little about the artisanal bread basket. First of all it is all handmade, and is affiliated with the world fair trade company. The basket itself reminds me a lot of the handmade sweetgrass baskets you see at the straw market in Charleston South Carolina. It is made of Kaisa, a sturdy wild grass cut from the  riverbanks during monsoon season, by women in Bangladesh. These women are provided with a steady, fair wage and a safe workplace, as well as training in new techniques to expand their skills.Rahabs Rope Gift Idea JENRON DESIGNS.jpgRahab’s Rope has casted the terracotta clay tiles which are oven safe, and keep your breads warm.  Directions: Rinse stone before use, Preheat oven your to 350F. Place terracotta stone in oven and bake for 10 minutes. To clean your stone, rinse with water, it is not dishwasher safe. Tree of Life Heat Stone JENRON DESIGNSThe stones come in many other custom patterns, mine reminds of the Tree of Life or Giving Tree, which I found to be appropriate based on the charity that Rahab’s Rope supports, you can see more. patterns and information at this link.

Okay so now onto the Peach Muffin recipe to fill your basket! This is a knock off, hack style recipe that is based off a Peach Muffin that used to be available at a restaurant here in Georgia called Po’Folks, then it was renamed to Folks, sadly only to go out of business. They were known for their Peach Muffins! I recently tried the Jim & Nicks cheddar Biscuit mix at my local market and thought it tasted like those muffins minus the peaches. So this recipe hack was born. I fiddled with the recipe until I had recreated what I remembered as the Po’ Folks Peach Muffin, and now I am sharing it with you, enjoy!

No matter what you chose to put inside of your bread basket, or whether you order one to keep and one give away,  it really is a wonderful gift to give this holiday season. I was able to pick mine up locally at the vendor booth located in Out of The Cedar Chest located at the Gainesville location. However, you can always check out the online store and have yours shipped directly to friends and family that are out of state as well, if you are not local.
