My one complaint is that sometimes I wish I could have it both wonderfully simple (which it is) and more detailed. For instance, most of the recipes that have an animal protein are either chicken or beef since that is what most people can find and buy for a reasonable price, but doesn't have many fish recipes. I love that each recipe has at least one picture, often more, and that you never have to turn a page (or scroll down) in the middle of making a dish. From Scratch is by far my favorite cookbook ever!
I'm a fan of the website and enjoy reading about what they do and how they raise their family. But her recipes are not something that she excels at. Alexandra cooks.com. Browneyedbaker.com and Food52 will get you leaps and bounds further towards your cooking goals and it's free.
1. I adore that this is a Christian sister who is homesteading and sharing her precious recipes.
2. I've learned a couple new ideas and recipes. We ADORE the mock Lara bars.
3. Definitely encouraging and gave me a new "umph" for cooking traditional foods, which is one of the things I was looking for in a cook book.
1. Not detailed enough. With all of the wonderful quality ingredients that we are utilizing, we should have more specifics; for instance, what are the yield amounts in most of the recipes? There are steps in certain recipes that are just randomly left out, I'm ok with this because I am one of those oh, we'll improvise kinda gals, but I couldnt give this book to someone who doesnt have creative freedom in their cooking.
I like the cook book. I was hoping for more diverse recipes, not just recipes piggy backed off of Nourishing Traditions. If Shaye and I were close friends, I would say KUDDOS you created a great book, but I would also be on the phone with her asking for more specifics.
Far from EXCELLENT, but simultaneously wonderful for a young mother of two, who is homesteading!
