I Want This Book!

For quite sometime I have been getting our house chemical free. There has been ALOT of reading, trial and error and half the time I just don't have the time to do the research to get things right.

There are so many books etc with recipes in that it is hard to know which one to get. That is until today. I got my weekly email from NZ Gardener (which is fabulous) and they had a review on a new book called "A Home Companion" by Wendyl Nissen. While I haven't actually seen the book, it sounds like it is exactly what I am looking for.

I honestly believe more and more families should just get back to basics, life just seems so much easier, healthier and, well cheaper.

YES!!!! I had this beauty in my hands yesterday, the cover is delicious!
I had never heard of it before and I reluctantly put it back on the shelf and have spent the better part of today trying to remember the title to look up on line! funny! I was even going to post about how much I want it.
It's on sale at the Warehouse FYI ;)

It looks like a great book. If you get a copy I'd love to know how helpful you find it.

Can I just say (as someone growing as much food as possible, including meat) that its a LOT of hard work. It may be cheaper, but you do have to have plenty of time. DH has been working a lot of hours and things here are getting very behind due to lack of time and manpower. There's too much work just for me.
