included also. But before you find your favorite recipe, sit down in a cozy chair and read from the beginning the poetic unwinding of what Freda calls, "cottage life, "...there is nothing quite as comforting as a pantry full of putting-by. A sonnet cannot share a lovelier thing than bright yellow peaches peeking through a Mason jar." Along with the nostalgia, glean the many practical tips for decorating and creating homemade soaps, pomanders, homemade powder and more! Primers for cheese, teas, and herbs are included. The House Blessings cookbook has been in print since 1997, and has been reprinted in various formats 3 times since. It has a comb binding for easy use, and card stock weight pages that will last and last. A plastic cover provides protection from cooking spills. The book weighs 13.5 ounces.
