Quick Book Recommendations: "Made From Scratch" and "The Backyard Homestead"

Often, we do full book reviews  to provide our readers with some insight into a book and then our assessment of it. This post is somewhat different.

Since we want to help you find interesting and helpful books, but there are too many to do full reviews of each and every one, we'll be posting some Quick Book Recommendations from time to time. These posts will have some material to help you get a feel for the book without a lot of analysis of the books.

Today's recommended books are Made from Scratch by Jenna Woginrich and The Backyard Homestead, which is edited by Carleen Madigan. These are both excellent books; the former is more a memoir, while the latter contains more self-reliant how-to information. The two videos below will give you some insight into each book.

In addition, you can click the links for either title (above or below) to find out more about the books and purchase them if you like. (As a reminder: if you are going to buy these books, we'd appreciate your linking through our site to do so.)
