A Cabin Full of Food: (Mostly a cookbook)


“All the Grandma recipes” – my favourite review sums up the book! Almost a thousand recipes, cooking ideas and information on cooking “homestead style” – simple, basic, home-grown ingredients, simple tools and old-fashioned recipes. It took me over four years to gather and test recipes and information from my friends, including many in the Old Order Mennonite community. Many of the recipes include stories of their origin. No microwave recipes in here! In fact, with a cooler and some ice to k

    Great book. I LOVE her style of writing and this is packed full of recipes. I’m going to attach some photos so you can get an idea the size of this book. There are no fancy photos- just recipe after recipe. I really like how practical the instructions and recipes are…. and there are so many great recipes in here that would be awesome to make as gifts during the holidays (ie. lemon extract, vanilla extract).

    We have a small garden and I’m hoping this book will help me effectively use some of our yield this year. Also looking forward to trying some of the sweet treats that are made from fruit- I don’t like giving my kids too much store bought candy because of all of the dyes and random ingredients. It will be neat to make it from scratch from something that at least has some nutritional value.

    Note: I originally started reading this on eBook as my one free book a month as a Prime member. I ordered it in print after getting a few chapters in. The eBook is a nice resource, but this really has so many recipes that I can use that it’s just a bit nicer to flip through in print.

    I bought this book, and it’s AMAZING. Where she describes how to make cheeses, she also tells you how to build a cheese press. She divides recipes by primary ingredient – and tells you how to preserve it, with the idea that you just harvested a garden full of it (or just bought half a cow from your butcher!). There are also a ton of great traditional recipes, from bannock to knopf to bubble & squeak! Whether you’re looking for ways to stretch your food dollar, reconnect with your roots, homestead or find new (old) recipes to try, this is 320 pages of easy to read recipes, interesting tidbits, history lessons and plain good advice.

    Not only that, but the author is sweet, smart lady who always full of new ideas. If you buy this book, you can feel good knowing that you’re supporting someone who is excited to share with others, and is happy to help others in their exploration of the Homesteading lifestyle in any stage – from complete newbie to seasoned off-gridder (is that a word? It is now!).

    Generally I don’t buy cookbooks, because I am more of a cook with what I have on hand type of gal. It is way more than a cookbook, since it also encompasses everyday “How to”‘s like how to make your own brown sugar & even how to can certain items. My husband is excited to try her recipe for canning apricots. I am already turning down page corners of recipes I want to try. This is a book that I highly recommend and I believe it will fast become a classic must-have cookbook.
