Ideas for Food-Related Sympathy Gifts?

Recipe Questions

Q: I have a friend who recently lost her husband, and I would like to give a sympathy gift. She has a toddler, and I would rather give her something that would be useful instead of things like flower arrangements. Any ideas for food or kitchen-related gifts?

Sent by ZoeEditor: I can think of nothing better at a time like this than the gift of a few good meals, especially those that your friend can simply pull from the freezer and re-heat. If you don't live close enough to stop by with freezer dishes, think about putting together a box of non-perishable foods like granola bars, soup mixes, and cookies.
