good info, horrible editing!,
This review is from: Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring (Holiday Series) (Paperback)
since i am relatively new to paganism, i found this book to be informative... the most interesting part for me was when she discussed the cultural heritage of the easter bunny, the egg, spring break, new easter clothes, etc. she also gave some good ideas for ostara rituals.
however, i will agree with another reviewer, the book is badly edited. she will address a topic in one chapter, and then several chapters later, she will address the same topic, and use almost the exact same wording. (and pictures!)
be wary of the recipies. her recipe for hot cross buns is very vague, i had to add about an extra cup of flour, and i kneaded it, even though she didn't say to. not paying attention, i followed the recipe exactly for the frosting: 2 cups powdered sugar, i cup orange juice, and got a runny mess. then i realized that they probably meant one *tablespoon* of orange juice. (next time, i'll try the hot cross buns in the red plaid better homes and gardens cookbook)
