My Review:
 The simple life.... Ahhhh, I like that phrase or thought it is like music to my ears. We have always lived in the country which is something I was not accustomed to because I grew up in the city as a child and young girl before I finally met my sweetheart and we made a life together. We have done many things in our over two decades of marriage. After we had our babies life changed and so we adapted. We did so by trying to grow a garden. Another way was that we had chickens and we raised rabbits for awhile. We love the simple life!

 Well in her book,  The Made From Scratch Life, Melissa K. Norris explains how you can have that same simple life. A life that is free of the hurry up and get up and go that this world finds itself in right now. she explains how to take an overabundance of apples and turn them into anything but such as apple sauce, apple pie filling, cider vinegar, and much more. She gives you several ideas on how to increase a food supply for your family. She also points out things to consider when wanting to raise livestock.

 The only complaint I had was that her book was not big enough. She only touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this life. She gives you the basics on starting on this journey of the simple life. It is a great life of self sustaining and the author has provided some great information to get us thinking about doing it.

**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
