Seasonal Delights News!

Phillip and I have tried to fill each issue of Seasonal Delights with lots of recipes and projects, but there are many that don't make it into the magazine. We decided to publish them as weekly bonus items for Seasonal Delights subscribers, and they've been quite popular.

Now we've decided to make all of these bonus projects and recipes free to all! There are a few bonus PDF files, and those remain as subscriber exclusives, but everything else -- 18 bonus items so far -- are linked below.

Oh, Kelli! What lovely pictures! Now I am sooo hungry! LOL I look forward to trying some of your recipes! Thanks for sharing! I just love your Seasonal Delights. I have both issues (so far) in my Good Things notebook - I got that idea from Barb at Chelsea Morning.

Just Mom said...

Oh. My. Goodness. I'm hungry.

Adrienne said...

Oh my goodness! I'm a subscriber and I've been missing a lot of good stuff. I've only downloaded each issue. Should I be checking in daily for other goodies? I'm not going to miss any more fun stuff. Thanks for sharing so much great information and such yummy-sounding recipies. We LOVE your White Chili. It's a hit! My dear little mother has adapted it a bit to meet her very restrictive dietary needs. She makes a big pot, freezes small portions and feels like she's in a special fancy restaurant each time she enjoys a bowl.

Thanks to you and your hubby for the hard work to do this for us.
