Winter Thyme (Bittersweet Walnut Grove)
is just as cute as all get-out. Authors Kristy Doubet Haare, Tiffany Hinton and Rita Doubet have clearly put a lot of thought into the look of their book. Unfortunately, usability was not a primary concern. The book is done entirely in pictures, which even in the larger format of Kindle for iPad are very hard to read, requiring the user to enlarge them.
There is a Table of Contents, but it too is a graphic image rather than text, so it is not only not interactive, it is of virtually no use. The same is true of the included project templates, which cannot be printed. You'll find nine recipes and crafts -
Cranberry Scones (uses coconut milk & gluten free flour)
Snow Stamped Mug (painting with porcelain paint on a purchased mug, requires template)
Orange Spiced Tea (an old recipe otherwise known as Russian Tea that uses instant tea, along with orange & lemonade drink mixes)
Little Tarts - Blackberry filled tarts baked in 3-inch pie pans
Hand Warming Hearts - heart-shaped, rice-filled hand warmers to craft
Bittersweet Marshmallows - recipe calls for agave syrup (not as "natural" as you might think)
Mom's Hot Cocoa - a combination of an old recipe for make-you-own hot cocoa mix and purchased hot cocoa mix
Sweetheart Banners -
Gratitude Gift - an assembly of most of the items above in a gift bag
Grandma's $0.02 - While Winter Thyme (Bittersweet Walnut Grove)
is cute, it has a huge file size due to the use of graphics rather than text. The book presents only a very limited selection of not-particularly-original craft & recipe ideas in an extremely hard to use format. Not recommended.
