A Mother's Guide to Whole Grains and Family Nourishment

Baby’s First Foods – A Mother’s Guide To Whole Grains

I wrote Baby’s First Foods a Guide to Family Nourishment as I had many ideas and methods on how to avoid using boxed and jarred baby food. However, my book became more of a guide on using whole grains for your entire family. I cover different machines for your kitchen to make life easier, such as pressure cookers, grain mills, and mixers. These appliances became very important to our family of 12 as they work fast, efficiently, and make healthy cooking easy.

This book makes a wonderful gift for any mother.
