There are 21 recipes (4 Brownies and 17 Bars) in this cookbook. Each recipe has 2 pages of cut-out Gift Tags (6 per recipe) with the recipe just after the mix recipe, which is convenient, but kind of odd when you are flipping through looking for the Mix Recipes. Also, there is no Table of Contents, Index, or page numbers. 128 pages total. Spiral bound, 5 1/4" x 8 1/4" Paperback. ISBN-10: 1563831236 (Item #3003)

All pages are made of cream colored thick card stock paper, inside is all black and white, no photos. There is 1 page at the beginning on how to decorate the jars and attach the tags. The gift jars are supposed to keep up to 6 months without nuts and 3 months for those with nuts. Looks like fun!

Recipes for the final product call for butter or margarine, eggs, or milk, but most can probably be made vegan, cholesterol-free, dairy-free or egg-free with a vegan trans-fat free margarine such as Earth Balance, egg replacer such as Ener-G and soy or nut milk and vegan or dark chocolate, though I haven't tried any of the recipes as of yet.

The M and M Bars call for 1 cup of M AND M CANDIES and the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Bars call for 8 large REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS.

Two recipes call for BUTTERMILK BISCUIT AND BAKING MIX (Chewy Butterscotch Nut Bars, White Christmas Bars)

One recipe calls for 1/2 cup TANG INSTANT BREAKFAST DRINK POWDER (Dreamsicle Bars).

The rest of the mix recipes call for normal ingredients like flour and sugar, etc...

This book is filled with recipes to make your own gifts. Each mix fits into a quart jar. The book even includes tags complete with recipient directions with each recipe. Just cut it out, personalize and attach to the jar. Fun to make and affordable, gifts in a jar make great gifts for neighbors, teachers and friends!

This book is very easy to use and full of nice recipes designed to fit into a one quart mason jar. There are nine tags for each recipe. It has taken care of my Chirstmas list for the people I work with. Will be something that is used many times over.
