Editorial Reviews

"Interesting as a different way of living, though not entirely possible for me, I did learn quite a few ideas around planting, recipes, natural cleaners and living at a slower pace.... Complete with charts for planting, preserving and cooking, there are definitely some simple ways to include in a more natural home and lifestyle. Absolutely a book to share or give to someone able/ willing to commit to that more raw lifestyle, I am glad I was given the chance to visit this book."

"The Made-from-Scratch Life held a vast amount more of information and tidbits than I first expected. This will be cherished as one of my "go-to" references for all that is natural.... I recommend The Made-from-Scratch Life for all other readers who are driven towards wanting a more natural way of approaching life's tasks."

"...There are charts of plant, crop rotation, pest control. She has information on freezing, preserves. There are also a few recipes in this book. I recommend this book highly..."

"[Melissa K. Norris] gives you the basics on starting on this journey of the simple life. It is a great life of self-sustaining and the author has provided some great information to get us thinking about doing it."
