I saw this book when it came out, and for some reason or other, did not even give it a flick through in the book store. I'm not sure why because I own Donna Hay's Modern Classics 1 and refer to it often. Perhaps I mistakenly put it in the "trendy" category. I was surprised to see it in my local library and decided to borrow it, despite the potential back ache from lugging it to the car (this, plus other books and baby sling!)
I was taken aback by the amazing photography... so stylish, in a cozy vintage picnic and farmhouse kind of way. And yet the majority of the recipes seem quite approachable and look absolutely delicious. Being a cold climate kind of girl, my favourite parts were the Autumn and Winter seasons. Seasons is divided into the four seasons and focuses on the available produce.
The other night I made the cinnamon fritters, which were very easy and contained simple ingredients. They were quite yummy and were gobbled up rather quickly by all.
Can you tell I have a sweet tooth?
This next book, is one you may have seen. It seems to be doing the blog rounds right now. I have to admit, though, that i haven't tried any of the projects yet. But it does look lovely and the instructions look very thorough.
I thought I might kick off with the simple mittens above. We certainly are starting to feel that cold..so perhaps sooner rather than later. Will keep you posted!
Enjoy your Wednesday!
