I am so excited to share a new book that just came out, Little House Living!
The book, Little House Living, is written by a friend of mine, Merissa, who I met through her blog LittleHouseLiving.com. Her blog was already very successful when I met her, but it has continued to grow over the years, and she has compiled her favorite homemade recipes in one beautiful book. And it is no wonder she has so many readers go back to her blog, day after day. She is impressively creative and genuine in all of her recipes and posts! She is honestly one of the most talented writers I know, and her tips on frugal and self-sufficient living are original, practical and useful.
Her book, Little House Living, features 312 pages of homemade recipes, gorgeous photos and plenty of great ideas for the aspiring cook, DIYer, or anyone who is looking to save money by making things from scratch.

“Through our journey, I’ve learned that happiness isn’t something that just happens to us, it’s something that we choose to have.” – Merissa Alink
