Old World Gourmet Mixes Great for Valentine’s Day or Hostess Gifts

Not sure what to get your Valentine this year?  Or maybe looking for a fun and different hostess gift for a party?  While giving a bottle of wine is the easy way to go, how about mixing things up with these fun Vino Freeze Mixes.  Definitely pair it with a bottle of wine, just don’t buy a high end bottle:)  

We received some great flavors from OWG (Old World Gourmet) brands to try out.  Since it is cold outside we thought we would try the Sangria first, but not freeze it.  The bottle of wine we opened was not great so this is the perfect thing to do with it…no need to throw it out, just remake it.

Our mix came with two packages of mix which was perfect for testing purposes.  We made a half of bottle of Sangria and saved the rest for the bread mix below.  It is definitely sweet and I might even add more water or wine to the mix.  A friend who has tried these before suggested the frozen version is much better. 

I know your sweetheart will be thrilled to receive a glass of Sangria as a surprise.  So Treat your sweet with a glass of sangria; made without any effort. They come in multiple flavors so you are sure to find one to fit your gift recipients tastes.  (Pomegranate martini, Bellini’s to name a few)

 I have tried beer bread before so I was excited to see they also made wine bread.  Using the rest of the wine we were about to throw away, I made a package of VINO BY THE SLICE Bread mix.  It retails for $10 so it is a great compliment to a bottle of wine.

Love the red color, obviously this would not be the case using white wine!!  We loved it with a slice of sharp cheese and also made it into garlic bread for dinner the next night.  Fun and super easy way to have fresh bread on your table.

Definitely worth looking at Vino Freeze Mixes for your next holiday or gift need. A fun way to tell someone you are thinking of them.  Check them out Old World Gourmet on Twitter or Facebook too.  You can buy some of Old World Gourmet products  HERE.

A SOUPER Valentine’s Day Gift for Teachers

I am always trying to come up with something thoughtful for teachers gifts since they work so hard.  I also like to make things that don’t necessarily need to be eaten within a few days.  They get enough of those types of gifts.  A few years ago we did these Cookies in a Jar which I think went over well.  Here is a Souper Valentine’s Day gift for teachers or neighbors.
