Little Country Cottage: A Spring Treasury

Posted on May 25, 2022 by

A Spring Treasury of Recipes, Crafts, and Wisdom is part of the Little Country Cottage series of books written by Angela Ferraro-Fanning and illustrated by AnneliesDraws. Let’s take a peek at what the book has to offer, along with some photos of a completed DIY project. Hint, hint: It involves cute baby chicks!

Little Country Cottage: A Spring Treasury

The Spring Treasury features almost 30 pages of homemade crafts, seasonal recipes, and fun facts about spring flora and fauna. Annelies’ art goes so well with the content of the book, and just the cover art already makes you feel warm and cozy!

DIY crafts and recipes include making a phenology wheel, a foraged wind chime, blossom bath salts, edible flower biscuits, kale crisps, and fruit leather. I have only been able to try one recipe so far – a cute spin on the classic devilled eggs.

Here is the finished product of kawaii Easter egg chicks! My partner and I worked on the recipe together, and we used nori seaweed & carrots for the eyes and beak instead of raisins & bell pepper. We tried to give the chicks cute emoji faces as well, with one crying, the other bored, and the last one angry. What do you think? We had these for dinner with a side of meatballs, and they were really yummy!

As someone who has lived in tropical Asian countries all her life and has never experienced spring (but has always wanted to!), I still found the book an enjoyable addition to my shelf. The instructions for the DIY crafts and recipes are all written in a clear, step-by-step process that you can easily do yourself or with kids for fun spring activities.

All 4 books in the Little Country Cottage series (also known as Little Homesteader in some countries) are available now from Book Depository or Amazon (US/UK) in paperback, hardcover, or ebook versions.

I’ll also be reviewing the Summer Treasury book on this blog once it arrives, so keep an eye out for it!

    Those eggs do look delicious! I had a coworker once express to me how amazed she was seeing the changing of the seasons here (central Canada), and I hope you do get to see it one day. :)
