A Cabin Full Of Food: A Homestead Cookbook

Get control of your food budget by cooking like Grandma

From Scratch Cooking...Using Ingredients You Already Have!

Hi, I'm Marie!

I believe "from scratch" cooking doesn't have to be hard. Done right, it's easy and super frugal.

Let me show you how your family also can enjoy nutritious, frugal food - using ONLY the ingredients you have on hand.

Whether you’re on the farm or in a suburban town, you’ll find great classic recipes that you can use tonight!


A Cabin Full Of Food is organized by food type (grains, vegetables, fruit, meat) and written in a conversational, easy-to-follow format.

It’s packed with almost 1000 easy, frugal, traditional recipes that will help you make the best use of what you have in the pantry already!

This is a massive, value-loaded book with over 300 pages of recipes, such as:


  • Ham & Apple Dinner Pie (Make this when you need a simple but yummy go-to recipe for busy nights!)
  • Scalloped Ham & Potatoes (Make it to celebrate your next holiday!)
  • Fish Cakes (A great recipe kids love!)
  • Bacon Potato Soup (Make this on cold winter days for comfort food!)
  • Baked Oatmeal (Make this the night before for an easy, nutritious breakfast kids love!)
  • And 995 MORE Easy Recipes!

These are recipes that have stood the test of time & I'm proud to share them with you.

A Cabin Full Of Food contains over 1000 of my own recipes, or ones that I have adapted and used over the years to make my own. There are lot of plain old classics that have almost been forgotten.

And quite a few come from the hand-written tried-and-true recipe books of my Old Order Mennonite friends.

You don’t need yet another book telling you how to make exotic ingredients into meals.

My grandfather always said to eat food that remembers where it came from, and I've lived my life by this advice.

But in this era of cans, boxes and bags, it is sometimes hard to know what to do with simple, from-the-farm food! That's why I wrote A Cabin Full Of Food!

You don't need food filled with preservatives. You deserve real, down home cooking at its best.
