Looking forward to: Tea & Cake with the Saints.

Alice has a new book coming out: Tea & Cake with the Saints.

Pre-order it at CHCweb.com. It it coming out Nov 15th. $18.95

"Hospitality does not have to be elaborate or difficult. It can begin right at
home with one’s siblings and parents! It can be as simple as a picnic with a
friend to celebrate their feast day or surprising your sister with breakfast in
bed. Many of the ideas in Tea & Cake with the Saints use Saint’s feast days
as the occasion for practicing hospitality in the form of simple tea parties,
but almost all of the ideas given can be used for any occasion a girl can dream
Young ladies will also be encouraged to start their very own homemaking
notebook and fill it with some of the ideas and recipes found among the varied
chapters on everything from basic cleaning and organizing, to simple gardening.
Tea & Cake is not meant to be a home economics text, but a light, fun and
inspiring introduction to “hospitality and the home arts”. Includes suggested
menus with recipes, articles, copy-n-clip recipe cards, hostess gift ideas, and
much more!
This beautifully illustrated, full-color book is divided into four
sections corresponding to the four seasons, each of which contains menus,
recipes, and ideas. The Winter section, for example, not only includes a menu
and recipes for tea or hot chocolate, cheddar muffins, spice cake, and cream
cheese mints."

She also wrote: Sewing with St. Anne sold at chcweb.com.

Time to order for Katie's birthday and/or Christmas gifts.
