Shortly after getting married, Merissa Alink and her husband found themselves with nothing in their pantry but a package of spaghetti and some breadcrumbs. Their life had hit rock bottom, and it was only after a touching act of charity that they were able to get on their feet again.
Inspired by this gesture of kindness as well as the beloved Little House on the Prairie books, Merissa found that a life of self-sufficiency and simplicity could be charming and blissful. She set out to live an entirely made-from-scratch life, the “Little House” way, and as a result, she slashed her household budget by nearly half—saving thousands of dollars a year. She started to write about homesteading, homemaking, and cooking from scratch, and over the next few years developed the recipes and DIY projects that would one day become part of her now beloved website, LittleHouseLiving.com.
As whole foods became staples of the family diet, Merissa realized the dangers of putting overly processed ingredients not only into our bodies, but on or near them as well. In addition to countless delicious, home-cooked meals, she developed natural, easy-to-make recipes for everything from sunscreen to taco seasoning mix, lemon poppy hand scrub to furniture polish. With their simple ingredients, these recipes are allergen friendly and many are gluten-free.
With over 130 practical, simple DIY recipes, gorgeous full-color photographs, and Merissa’s trademark charm in personal stories and tips, Little House Living is the epitome of heartland warmth and prairie inspiration.

This book has great pictures and lots of detail to help with making her items. Organization of topics throughout the book is perfect.
I ordered the slightly damaged, new copy of Little House Living for myself. I thought there must have been a mistake. It was in wonderful shape! Just the smallest of crimps in the bottom corner. I am so looking forward to using this in the new year and I'm sure it will have a lot more "damage" as it will be very well used :) Thank you!!
This book is the perfect complement to the Little House Living blog. I am so happy I got it and already found several mixes to make asap!! The recipes are super easy and most ingredients are already in the house. Thank you Merissa for inspiring all of us. :)
I am buying another copy to give to my daughter! I recently started making some homemade products, and this book gave me the confidence to make even more! Recipes are easy to follow. Ingredients are easy to procure (for the moment) and I like the stories Merissa shares. I will highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to live a more natural lifestyle, DIY, and get away from the 'junk' we use day to day.
I am very pleased with my book, which I ordered as used but looks perfect to me. Also happy to have received it so quickly. I'm sure I'll enjoy it and find it very useful. It is beautifully written snd easy to read.
