    What a great book to get you started on a life of wholesome living at a bargain! I love the “recipes” for so many things I used to purchase at much higher costs, plus I am able to use my own organic ingredients to make them my own. I plan to purchase other copies of this book for gifts.

    This book is totally amazing it gives life everything you need to make things simple again. The author of this book creates a home and neighbor atmosphere for you to experience in her writings. I do not think that I have ever in my 62 years enjoyed a book as well as this one. I now have a new order for Christmas,Birthdays, Wedding Gifts, House Warming and Off to College you must go…..GIFTS! I have this book virtually dog eared I have read it so many times. Friends have requested I give them the recipes or zerox this or that. I tell them buy the book and nope mine is not a loaner. I give my acquaintances the site address so they can go on-line unless i am planning on gifting it to them or theirs….I mean the book Little House Living: The Make Your -Own Guide by Merissa A Alink. I can personally tell you I have followed this young lady and her friends for years she is the hi-light of may day when her emails,face book or her short notes respond to my comments on-line. Out of all amazon…reading…this book is the one that keeps giving! It shares life in the simplified way bringing a smile to my face and new discovery every time I read it. This book is given 5 stars a thumbs up and has turned this lady into a repeat customer so that my family, friends, co-works, church members and even the post master can retrieve some of the lost traits of canning, cooking and home making as it was in my grand mothers days. Please do yours and yourself a favor order this book today. I wish there was a volume II or III or even IV to follow up with.

    Having been a follower of her blog, I actually pre-ordered this book before it came out. I received it, glanced through it, and then it went to rest on the shelf with my other recipe books. I did notice immediately that it was beautifully photographed and well organized, but I just didn’t have time to really go through it.

    Well recently I broke my leg very seriously and suddenly found myself with a ton of extra time to read. As I’m going through it I am repeatedly amazed by the type of things she has recipes for. For example, there’s a recipe for antibacterial cleaning wipes!! I buy these at the store all the time and even the generic brand is super expensive. I love the convenience of them, but I won’t let my kids use them because of the nasty chemicals. Which means more cleaning for mom to do. This is not just a book with a few homemade lotion and food recipes, it is so much better. I had no idea that such a gem of a book was on my shelf; I wish I had dedicated some time to it sooner!

    Besides recipes there are also helpful little ‘money saving tips’ throughout the book. Like the recipes, the tips are so simple and yet so genius. Many of these leave me wondering why in the world I didn’t think of them myself.

    Merissa is definitely an expert at homemade recipes of all sorts. I don’t know how one woman could have come up with so many wonderful recipes but I’m so glad she decided to share them! Probably the best thing about this book is that it is genuine and has heart. As another reviewer mentioned, she doesn’t just share her knowledge she also shares herself. I think that really pulls the book together and makes it actually interesting to just sit and read.
