    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!!

    As a child, I was obsessed with Laura Ingalls Wilder. My mom was also a great cook so when I came across this book on one of our library trips, I was intent on having her help me recreate the old-fashioned recipes. Although I think it is now out of print, my mom was eventually able to get me my own copy simply because she was sick of having to check it out of our library every time we went.

    As I recall, the recipies are, where possible, organized according to where the ingredients would have come from. For example, field, forest, and stream. this makes sense for those who would have originally used them, but isn't always helpful for the practical purposes. Some of the ingredients are hard to come by because people don't really keep lard on handy anymore or buy a chicken with all the innerds still intact. Most though, can be adapted for a modern kitchen if you get a little creative and, if you are really into cooking, it can be fun looking for the hard to find ingredients in specialty shops.

    I remember making the molasses candy by pouring a molasses mixture onto a pan of fresh snow, making homemade butter (my mom thought having us shake the canning jars of heavy whipping cream was a great way to keep us out of trouble in the summer), and I was so proud when I tested out the recipe for pound cake which I brought to share with my 4th grade class when i gave my book report on laura ingalls wilder.

    A great book for the experimental/historically accurate chef!
