Rosemary Sea Salt – Quick Hostess or Neighbor Gift

A quick and delicious recipe for Rosemary Sea Salt that makes a great holiday hostess gift!

Rosemary Sea Salt - My Cooking Spot-4

Hey y’all! It’s Stephanie from Sustaining the Powers here again today. Raise your hand if you love to give hostess gifts. Raise your hand again if you love to receive hostess gifts! Maybe it’s because I’m from Texas, but my mom always taught me you should never show up at a party empty handed.

(It’s special to give them too. I get really excited about giving hostess gifts!)
