Erica Strauss is a former chef and popular blogger. Her blog the Northwest Edible Life is a thoughtful meditation on life. In The Hands-On Home, she writes about all things domestic. From making homemade granola to making homemade body soap, she has a recipe you can follow. I like to think of it as an extension of the slow food movement into a slow home life movement. This earth friendly manual has something for everyone who takes pleasure in doing it yourself.
