Praise for Bittersweet Walnut Grove Books

“This cookbook says comfort from cover to cover. The stories the sisters share are very inviting and rich with life on the farm. Throughout the whole cookbook you will feel like you are talking to family and swapping recipes around the table. Each recipe has a Gluten Free option. … so you don’t have to try to make your own adjustments, it is already provided for you. This book takes you to the farm and wraps you in like talking to a good friend.”

 – Kayla, Simply Burch


“If you are looking for winter comfort food to bring you warmth, homemade gifts for teachers and friends or easy crafts for the little ones this book will scratch all those itches. I love money bread but after going mostly gluten free, I have never tried recreating it. It seemed implausible. Bittersweet Walnut Grove’s gluten free Walnut Sticky Bread recipe is fabulous! The dough has the typical crumble of gluten free baked goods but is so light and lovely.”

 – Aimee, My 9 to 5 Shoes

“Every aspect of the book warms my heart, the family stories, the photography, the recipes & projects. The quotes you’ll find throughout make me smile. It is definitely one of those book that you’ll take out every Winter not only to display but to read and re-read!”  

 – Sarah Gill, Alderberry Hill

“Bittersweet Walnut Grove” is a beautiful collection of creativity through generations. The recipes, crafts, and all around “feel” of the book spark creativity, inspiration, and make you want your home to be full of love and warmth. After reading Bittersweet Winter, I wanted to immediately get in my kitchen and start baking sweets. I am a hot chocolate fanatic… I am especially excited to try out Mom’s Hot Cocoa recipe.”  

 – Caroline Hulse, Sew Caroline

“I felt so much love and warmth reading this book. I would give anything to walk down that snowy white “farm road” heading home, where a cup of “moms” hot cocoa with a cinnamon stirring stick awaits me. Pure “BLISS!”

 – Jen Larsen, Craft-o-Maniac

I cannot wait to try some of the amazing recipes… The Bittersweet Marshmallows with Mom’s Hot Cocoa sounds so yummy! I know you’ll love this book as much as I do.”  
  – Liz Fourez, Love Grows Wild

The book is a beautiful collection of crafts and recipes passed down from ‘Mom’ or created as Kristy and her sister Tiffany were growing up... the memories shared in the book warmed my heart!”

This beautiful book was written by a mother-daughter team and consists of heartfelt stories, inspirational photos, and simple “made from the heart” craft projects. It definitely has that “old fashioned” feel! The projects and recipes in this book are all simple and easy to follow, can be completed in less than an hour, and can even be done with your kiddos. You probably even have most of the supplies on hand!”
