When we created this week's Cookbook of the Week, we were on the search for recipes that are perfect for sharing, crafts to make & give as thoughtful gifts and all of our best ideas for being thoughtful, thankful and just plain nice to friends & family.

While it's a little different than our usual featured titles - it comes in a smaller, perfect-for-giving size! - once you have it in your collection, you're sure to find many times throughout the year to put it to use.

With three sections of recipes and another filled with crafts, there's no shortage of goodies to make. Sprinkled in between sections, you'll find inspiring stories of unexpected kindness, quotes to brighten your day and some very handy collections of tips.
