I love cookbooks-I love them so much that I read them like novels! With that being said, however, it is very rare that I get a new cookbook and want to make every.single.recipe, but with Jill's new cookbook I do! It is a whole foods, cooking from scratch cookbook, minus the guilt inducing "you must be perfect, eat everything organic or else grow your own" mentality prevalent in many cookbooks of the same ilk. There is a plethora of information in the back of the book with tips and ideas to get ...more

I didn't realize when I put this book on hold at the library that Joel Salatin wrote the foreward - that's all the endorsement I need to know this is a great book! Jill Winger and her husband decided when they were first married to buy a farm in Wyoming and start homesteading. At the time Winger was learning through trial and error, but she wants to pass on the knowledge she learned, especially about cooking, on so others can benefit from what she learned. There is SO MUCH great information in ...more

A lot of cookbooks by well known folks have a palate I will never possess. Due to a serious health issue, there is much I can no longer eat, spicy is one category I cannot touch, fresh fruit and veggies, wheat, dairy, etc. I get to the point that I crave an actual meal that doesn't require ingredients I have never heard of or being nuked. So when I saw the cookbook and flipped through the pages, I was sold. Then a couple weeks after I checked out the book, my oven motherboard died. I had, had a ...more

Normally I suggest people pick up 'the Joy of Cooking' if they only have ONE cookbook. This book might be a better alternative in that it walks you through a lot of cooking and living concepts that make eating well a less daunting task. Even if you live in an apartment or RV and don't have room for a potted basil on a sunny windowsill, this cookbook is worth having. My absolute favorite thing about this book, is that it is a book you can read. In fact it is a Good Read.

Equal parts cookbook and information on how to live a homesteader life, this book has completely changed the way I will look at “country life.” My husband will be happy to know that I now want to move to the country with some chickens and cows in tow, while simultaneously baking homemade bread and canning pickles and the like.

4.5 out of 5 stars

This is my new favourite cookbook. Great for both the novice and experienced home cook wanting to cook from scratch. In addition to recipes the book gives lots of tips, advice, and reasons to switch to homegrown food and from scratch cooking without being preachy or condescending. Just be prepared to want a milk cow.

Yep, I read this cookbook from start to finish. I follow Jill Winger’s Prairie Homestead blog and have many favorite especially her recipes for hamburger buns, biscuits, pie crust, and pumpkin pie starting with baking an entire pie pumpkin in the oven.

this lives on my counter in my kitchen now. her recipes are REAL food. REAL cooking with easy instructions. In this crazy world of dietary restrictions I loved this. plus we're ranchers so her lifestyle is just mine by default :)

What a great book! This is sort of a Homestead Manual, written by a very passionate individual. Many really interesting sounding recipes are also in the book.

Awesome sounding recipes but a little too much work for me. I wish I had a farm to create some of these amazing dishes. Plus in general I wish I had a farm.

This cookbook is on my to buy list,I hated returning it to the library. The tomato soup recipe is my favorite I've made it a few times now and is a huge hit. I highly recommend this book
