9780517581810: A Cheerful Heart: A Collection of Thoughts, Poems, Sentiments, and Recipes to Share with

This little book is filled with Barbara Ohrbach's favorite thoughts about the positiveness of love and caring about one another, and it truly captures Shelley's notion that "All love is sweet." Barbara has looked to writers as diverse as Thomas Jefferson and Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Agatha Christie -- and gathered a rich and touching collection of quotations that celebrate the many wonders of love.

Also included throughout the book are simple, delicious recipes for Forget-me-not Fudge Sauce, Meringue Kisses, and other sweet treats to share and enjoy. Any of these easy recipes will make an enchanting gift for all the special people in your life.

Illustrated with delightful eighteenth- and nineteenth-century engravings, A Cheerful Heart is a perfect present. Tie it with a ribbon and give it to someone you love along with a thoughtful note or a big hug. As Barbara says in her introduction, it is these little, loving things that make each day worthwhile.
