{FREE EBOOK} from scratch holidays

Coined from scratch holidays, we wanted to dedicate most of November & December’s content to various seasonal recipes for your holiday table, edible gifts and reflections on the holiday season as a whole. We have more to come, including radish toasts, DIY coffee creamer, beef jerky, dark chocolate covered candied orange peels, Kahlua marshmallows & hot chocolate set, fudge, cheese plate “class”, free printable gift & canning labels and much much more! But first we have something exciting to share.

Something we have never done before…

our very own Ebook!
(Double Eeeeeeek! I’m really nervous. Will you like it? Will there be a ton of typos? Did I forget to change fonts on a page?)

    OK! Shared on my FB page, read through a couple of the recipes …. but can’t figure out how to download the free ebook. 😦

    1. Christina says:

      Hey Maria! I’m so sorry about the confusion. The links are in two places on the post. Right where we “introduce” the book and again at the very bottom. -Christina

  5. NicolleMK says:

    Hey! This is great! I downloaded the best version. Do you have a password set on it? When I’m trying to save, it asks for the owners password.

    1. Christina says:

      Hey Nicholle, I have no idea what that password issue is?!?! I’m so sorry. I have replaced the “best version” links with a new freshly exported Ebook if you would like to try again. Again, my apologies.

  6. Tim says:

    So totally downloaded, like right now!

  7. NicolleMK says:

    Thanks! The updated version worked with no problem.

  8. Heather Vitella says:


    I love your ebook and can’t wait to try some things. I wanted to know, in order to get started, where I would get Garlic bulbils from? I love this idea!!!

    Thanks, Heather

  9. bakeanything says:

    Congratulations on the Ebook! It’s such a great compilation of all the exquisite homemade recipes. Just downloaded the “best quality” and am going to make the spice blends for friends this holidays. Brilliant effort (:

  10. I love the ebook! Beautiful job to all of you. Thank you so much!

    The yield for the Body Lotion is really off in the recipe. It says that it will make about 2 pints (32oz) of lotion. Looking at the ingredients, that seemed low to me. I decided to double the recipe, but still only got about 12oz of lotion (instead of the 64oz). The lotion turned out great, but the yield was grossly under what the recipe stated. I have made it twice, with the same results.

    I have also started to make the Limoncello and have similar yield concerns. There’s only 1250 ML of liquid in the recipe, but is says it yields 4, 500ml bottles. It seems that even with the sugar in the syrup it won’t yield 2000ml.

    I thought ya’ll would like to know, in case corrections are necessary. Thanks!

    A little bit of knowledge goes a long way in all situations in life.

    Buying a car is no different! That means you need to read advice from experts, as detailed below,
    to ensure that when you shop for that car, you really know what you’re doing and how to get the best deal.
