Here’s what others have to say about this wonderful book:

Jenny from Black Fox Homestead has to say about it:

As homesteaders, we often find ourselves in a unique situation: we work hard to grow and raise our own food, which often times leaves us too exhausted to prepare the food we’ve worked so hard to grow and raise. In Homestead Cooking with Carol, Carol guides you through the process of preparing food in advance for those heavy garden days that leave no time for work in the kitchen.  Her warm approach gives the feeling a neighbor has dropped by for the afternoon and is simply offering  advice over a cup of tea. This is not a recipe book, this is a series of “make ahead and store it” techniques that can be used to fit any kitchen, any diet plan, or any family size.  I highly recommend it for any homestead cook, rural or urban.


Kendra from New Life on the Homestead says:

Homestead Cooking with Carol is a wonderful guide to learning how to quickly prepare meals from the bounty of your harvest, without slaving over the stove three times a day or feeling like you live in the kitchen. Carol knows first-hand just how hard it can be to get all of the chores for the day done, and still put a nutritious homemade meal on the table. This book is a treasure-trove of time saving tips for the busy homesteader.  I look forward to putting her recipes and advice to good use!


Here’s what Sonja T. has to say about that:

The recipes alone make this a must read book. Add to those Carol’s insightful and easy to follow suggestions for saving valuable time in a homesteading kitchen, and you have a “must have” book for every family.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!


  1. Thank you for your kind words, Nelle. :)

    I would love to win this book. I have/am becoming more and more interested in homesteading even though we live on 1 acre in suburbia. I love to cook, bake, can, freeze, dehydrate and hope to have my own garden this coming up year. I am 66 years old and I remember my mom doing so much of this. Just getting acquainted with your site and love what I have seen thus far.
