The Cottage Mama E-Book Bundle Giveaway!~CLOSED

This Giveaway is now closed! Congratulations to Sharon K.!

I was delighted when Kristy from Little Natural Cottage contacted me and offered me her E-books to review and enjoy! Even though I was raised on the beaches of southern California, reading her books brought out the "South" in me I never even knew existed! As I read through each delicious recipe, I couldn't help but want to say to my family, "Y'all are going to love this recipe!"

Seriously!

Kristy not only has amazingly delicious and healthy recipes for nourishing your family, but she writes in a way that says, "Welcome to my kitchen, what can I get you?"

Kristy has written four fabulous e-books I would love to share with you today.


This little gem of a book is packed full of creative, healthy and easy make-ahead mixes for your family. It screams "Brilliant!" I wish I would have had this book while I was pregnant. I would have been able to plan ahead to those, I need toothpicks to hold my eyes open, sort of days with out wondering what can I whip up real quick. Now I have had on hand, several mixes from Buttermilk Pancake mix to Homemade Pizza Dough!


Holiday Mixes & Gifts in a Jar is a wonderful book and my new favorite go to gift guide. Kristy gives ideas for creating Holiday Goodie Baskets that would make very heart warming gifts. For example, attaching a cookie cutter to you jars for the cookie mix recipes or simply adding a few tea bags or a bag of home made coco into a pretty tea-cup or mug. This book has recipes ranging from Muffins, Soups and even Apple Pie in a Jar! She even has a Spiced Pumpkin Mix and Y'all know how I love my pumpkin! (see below)


This DIY e-book is amazing! Kristy has broken up this book into four sections; DIYourself for your Home, your Health, your Babies and for Fun! I really appreciate the simplicity this book. Kristy gives step by step instructions as well as photos for making liquid hand soap, herbal salves, baby teething biscuits, and facial lotion. Again all these delightful recipes could be used as gifts!


The Cottage Mama Plans Her Menu is Kristy's latest book and again, it's full of delicious recipes that are wholesome and healthy! Kristy plans out 14 days worth of meals and give tips  to accommodate for gluten and dairy sensitivities. Included is a Grocery Shopping List, Whole-Food Hints and Time Saver Tips.

I hope this comment goes through. It's like the 4th time I've tried. :-( I am very interested in the mixes books. I'm sure I'd like them all, but those are what I'd like first.

As a busy working mom who struggles with what to eat for dinner at the last minute, I am looking for help in menu planning and even take things to the next level with healthy things to eat and use at home for skin care and other things.

Thanks

These books would be a blessing to me in multiple ways: I am always looking for ways to improve my love and skill for the kitchen and home, especially when it gives me a few extra minutes to spend time mentoring my university girls; Having these resources would also be a blessing as I teach them the role of a practical and Godly wife as many of them know zero about the kitchen; and a blessing because I am trying to go more simple in my kitchen- having these books electronically is one more way to keep clutter out of my kitchen. :)
