I got this book from the library yesterday.
I want to own it. I LOVE it! Of course I love all the Little House books, which I do own, but I love to cook and read about cooking. Historical cooking is my favorite. Plus, the author gives lots of background information about cooking during the time period that Laura Ingalls was a child and what a kitchen would have been like. The recipes are very simple and generally hardy. Except for the recipe for salt rising bread- that one looks complicated.
I plan on making the chicken pie, with bone in chicken and a fluffy top crust, the rye-n-injun bread and some others. I will post those recipes later as I have time. Been gone running errands today, again, and need to tend to some homemaker things :)
