Bittersweet Walnut Grove Book Review & Freebie

If you are needing help getting through the last stretch of winter, I have just the thing. This beautiful seasonal book, Bittersweet Walnut Grove: Winter Thyme, is heartwarming and chock-full of fun winter recipes and crafts. The projects are beautiful yet simple enough for even the craft challenged folks.

Kristi of Life-n-Reflection is not only a talented crafter and designer, she also co-authored this book. The photography, stories, recipes, and personal touches make this delightful read a winner.

And the great news is it's available in ebook form or as a paperback at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

For my Project Alicia readers, Kristy was kind enough to offer these adorable recipe cards...

Which, by the way, would make another great gift idea. Just find a favorite recipe, transfer onto cards in your own handwriting, add some pretty ribbon or twine and voila! You could also place cards in a mason jar or cute container or add a few ingredients to go with.
