  26. 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.
