From the Great Depression to good old-fashioned hospitality to homemade delicious recipes from scratch of family hand me downs, this book is amazing. I thought that Melissa’s sharing of what she has learned and is holding onto herself is inspiring. I found her sharing very open and I was blessed to hear her experiences. She really helps with what a home looks like if in the right balance. Encouraging that last minute guests for dinner is a welcomed experience if balance is in place in the house… YIKES! A healthy alternative, with a frugal agenda, to all the processed foods in the store is SO needed in our culture today. Way to go Melissa, A+ for this one! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Hand Made is a fantastical and I do mean fantastical book. It is all about recipes from the authors grandparents recipes from World War II-but not just recipes but tips as well - and they are also valuable and informational - what is your favorite? I wonder if it is the same as the books? Well one of mine is shepherd's pie - and guess what? - yes it is the same way that you do it back then in World War II as I do it today Dash or shall I say I do it today and they did it back in World War II -you have to get this book the tips are great for instance "a biscuit had more versatility than a loaf of bread." it also gives you Herbal Remedies which my grandfather used and gave to us to use and it worked wonderfully. Also crafts gifts and decor she has so much personal information about her life and their families life and faith. I can't wait to try all the recipes. Come join me. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all the opinions expressed in this review are all my own.
