Lisa Shafer said...

I'm not entering, as I've won something from you before (thanks!), but I wanted to say that I own a copy of the Little House Cookbook, and it's fascinating. It gives modern directions on how to make nearly everything Wilder describes in the book: easy things like pancakes, and more unusual things like cheese. It also offers a good explanation of how cooking techniques and food themselves have changed over the last century or so.

Oh how wonderful, I would really use them! I am a great delver into old cookbooks before 'self-rising flour' and other abominations became common to create my various dishes and cakes. My plain organic four dusted fingers are crossed.
