Creatively Simple: How to Make Butter in the Blender (PDF ebook)

Learning to make butter is something everyone should do at least once.
This simple ebook by Penny Raine can teach you how, using items you
probably already have in your kitchen. Detailed instructions and lots of

And then, after you do that, pour yourself a cup of hot cocoa and grab a couple of chocolate chippers.  It's a chilly one today.  Brrr.

  1. I thought nobody was reading my More Books Mondays posts! : ) I'm glad you and your children have enjoyed the Whelan book. Have you read Hattie Big Sky? If not, it's a must read. It's by Kirby Larson. I am hosting an interview with her later in February (Feb. 27, I believe). The book was a Newbery Award winner back a few years ago. You can read my review of it here-->http://hopeistheword.wordpress.com/2008/01/10/book-review-hattie-big-sky-by-kirby-larson/


    I'm hoping to read a few lighter things (maybe some YA Or JF stuff) in March after I (hopefully) finish Les Miserables, and of course, I will review what I read! ; )


    Thanks again for posting!
