Although a lot of these recipes would be near-impossible to make or recreate (I can't imagine cooking starlings to have a blackbird pie), the research done for this book is impeccable! I love the fusion of quotes from the "Little House" books with the history of food and eating from that era. Getting to the actual recipes is almost an afterthought - but I found a few that I have made before without thinking about it, and a few more that I want to try!

I think this book is wonderful. I understand why some may not because it is better titled a cookbook rather than a recipe book. The recipes are not in a standard recipe book format and really it is more of a book you have to actually read. However, the author did a lot of research on cooking and food from the 1800's. It is this knowledge that is so fun and enriching in this book. I LOVED in the "Little House" books and read them almost every year. These recipes have been fun. I have been trying to convince Josh to read the books. He has finished Little House in the Big Woods. We can't wait to do the Molasses-on-Snow Candy this year for the first time!!… (mais)

As a kid I had a paperback Scholastic book club edition of this, so I was excited to see the new edition with photographs! While the content is still all fantastic, this almost feels too fancy to cook from - I don't want to spill on the glossy photos and nice hardback cover!

This book is a collection of recipes and excerpts from the Little House on the Prairie book series. This book has many uses for students because it offers both historical information about food availability, use, and preparation in the American frontier and actual recipes that mathematics students could manipulate using their knowledge of fractions, ratios, and units of measurement. This chapter book would also be a fun side read for students who are fans of the original Little House on the Prairie book series and want to get a more detailed look into the culinary aspect of the characters. The book also includes additional resources such as a metric system conversion chart, and index, and a bibliography.… (mais)
