Harvest Sangria from Cooking By The Seasons
Contributed by: Chris WebAdmin. of RecipesNow.com
In the first line of the introduction author Karri Ann Allrich says:
"By aligning ourselves to Nature's cycles, we invite the presence of the sacred into our daily life."
I felt this was a spot on description of this cookbook, yet
somehow it is misleading. I had only read the introduction after
I had already checked out the rest of the book and this line
made me think of how many people would not understand that this
book is for anyone who wants to eat well.
