Little Country Cottage: A Winter Treasury of Recipes, Crafts and Wisdom - Angela Ferraro-Fanning


Celebrate winter with this seasonal treasury of nature-based crafts, baking recipes and gardening projects for the season, inspired by the homesteading lifestyle with self-sufficient and eco-friendly fun, charmingly illustrated by AnneliesDraws.

Locally printed on 100% recycled paper, this lovely book includes:

  • Easy yet delicious winter recipes and treats that introduce young readers to local and seasonal eating, from berry cookies, to hot cocoa recipes to warm up after a winter walk.
  • How to use up unloved parts of produce, such as carrot tops to make a kitchen windowsill garden for a naturally zero-waste way of living.
  • Accessible and fun crafts, such as salt-dough ornaments and foraged foliage wreaths.
  • Seasonal gardening and growing projects: planting bare root berry bushes in the ground or in containers, which can be done in a garden or a balcony.

Woven alongside the cooking, crafting, and planting projects are little snippets of seasonal information and self-sufficient wisdom from homesteading teacher Angela Fanning of Axe and Root Homestead, with a focus on enjoying and celebrating the best of what winter has to offer.
