I love anything Wanda E. Brunstetter writes so this is a favorite.  I don't like to cook that much as I have been married 55 years but there are some recipes in this book look like something that would be easy to cook and as our garden has just come in, I have fresh produce to use.  There is even a recipe for "Zucchini Carrot Cake"  I just know that one will be a very moist and different cake.  There are also a page that tells how to can popcorn.  After all these years I have never heard this but sounds so easy.
Thanks so much to the author and Shalyn Sattler director of trade marketing at Barbour Publishing, Inc.See my review at Amazon

Published September, 2016


This is a very nice hard back book with pages to write your thoughts on and then there are some very pretty pages to color. Some of the pages are already in color but still has the page opposite to write your daily thoughts.
I love the way the book feels in my hands and as I turn the pages I am ready to get out my pens and pencils.
Thanks so much to Tyndale Publishing for sending me this book for my review with no cost to me and in my own words.

I received this book from Dover Publishing for my honest review.  So here goes, this is not one of my favorite coloring books, just too hard for my mind to grasp.  If you have  lots of colors to use these pages would be really pretty.  Too me it is hard to see where to go with each color but I am a great-grandmother and my eyes are not as good as a younger person.  If you like hard coloring books then give this one a try, I love most of the Creative Haven books and I have colored and finished the complete book in some of them, don't think I could do that with this one
