I've had this book for a while now but I refer to it all the time. If you have kids, it is a "must have" book to have in your library. I try and re-read it every 6 months or so just to refresh my memory on everything. There is a follow up to this book that I am very interested to read as well.
Second, Nourishing Traditions:
This book is a fabulous wealth of knowledge. If you never once used a recipe from this book it would still be worth owning just for all the added information on each and every page!
All around great information written by a woman who was a great homesteader. This book is also one I often refer back to.
Hope that you enjoy these as much as I do!
