Adrianna is the queen of cozy, and you'd be silly not to turn to her for all of your cozy needs. As a longtime follower of her blog, I can't say I'm surprised by the amazing, comforting recipes in this book (Rye Walnut Lace Cookies? Those gorgeous Cinnamon Rolls?!?!!), but what did pleasantly surprise me were all of the fun crafts in here! I am so excited to make my own wreaths, candles, and crafting paper. It's gonna be so much fun. My waistline's gonna be really excited, too. --Molly Yeah, My Name is Yeh The Year of Cozy by Adrianna Adarme is both sumptuous and completely down to earth.

The photos are light and ethereal, drawing you into a world where she and her corgi stay in (and enjoy it!), go on neighborhood adventures, and, most of all, live intentionally cozy. --Stephanie Le, I am a Food Blog Happiness comes from creating time and space to savor life's little bites whether you are enjoying a chilly fall picnic or teaching yourself a new craft.
