Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Book club: Made from Scratch

Well, the voting is dying down on the selection for the next book club and it looks like the winner, by a wide margin, is going to be Made from Scratch: Discovering the Pleasures of a Handmade Life. This book will tie in nicely with my next super challenge which I'm going to announced this Monday. I'm so excited!!

Anyway, I digress, it also looks like the author, Jenna Woginrich, is willing be participate in our book club nonsense, I mean, discussions, so I'm very excited about that, too! So, get yer copy and start reading. I'll be posting the first discussion post sometime in mid-October so we can hopefully be finished before the holidays begin en force.

Let me know if you'd like to start sooner and I'll get on it!

Oooh, I read this book a while ago (I might have been the first one to get it out of my library) and I really enjoyed it. Great pick, everyone!

I too have read it and loved it! I used to be able to leave comments at Cold Antler Farm Blog but I can't anymore. You have to have some google account to do so. Me no have!

She is such an inspiration to me! Following her dreams at such a young age. I admire that.

I've been wanting to read this book for a while now, so I'm glad I've got the motivation :)

Not sure about the time, though.

I read this a couple of months ago and it was a great and entertaining read! We went to the same college..about q decade apart though. I loved the progression of her simplifying her life. I really felt a kinship with her.

I've been wanting to read this book . . . excited to have excuse.

Also, can I submit my book, Smart Mama's Green Guide: Simple Steps to Reduce Your Child's Toxic Chemical Exposure, for consideration for the book club?

I think of this book as a "warm bath" book - the kind of book you take with you into a tub, to relax and inspire. I'm glad you are reading this one!
