Recipes, Rituals, and Crafts to Embrace the Magic of the Year
by Emma Frisch and Jana Blankenship
This book will be a wonderful resource for its intended audience. It is filled with information, reflections, projects, photos, illustrations and more from the contributors.
This title is organized by “micro”seasons. Start anytime that you like or look forward or backward in the book just for the fun of it. To focus on our current time of early spring, here is some of what will be found. There are recipes for No Fuss Crispy Roast Chicken with Winter Roots; Calendula & Coconut Castile Shampoo and Body Was; a section on Dorodango Mud Balls and more. By late winter, make Heart Beet Hummus or Creamy Squash and Lentil Soup. There are also Rainbow Prisms for the window instructions, to name just some of what is here.
One of the nice touches in this title is that the difficulty of the projects is included. This is a book for those who like to be hands on and to work together with others, at least sometimes.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
