Barbara Walker discovered the "Little House" series when her daughter, Anna, was four and fond of serial stories and kitchen craft. What began as pleasant diversion - recreating frontier food - became serious study for the author after a family trip west by way of some Little House sites. Eight years of intermittent reading, writing, a...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'a warm & delightful book' the Little House Cookbook blends Walker's considerable historical research; plenty of hands-on testing of vintage recipes and adjustments for modern kitchens; and a great deal of the delight and joy that she and her young daughter must have shared as Walker prepared the book. thorough, detailled, with Garth Homer's original illustrations throughout, and relevant quotes from each of the Little House books to introduce each recipe... this book is a real gem. offers a creative way for fans to smell, taste, and enjoy a little piece of their heroine's world, Laura's pioneer life. full stars and celebrations all around..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming!!! I flipped through my childhood copy of this so many times that it started to fall apart and I had to buy a new one! The book is filled with quotes and illustrations from the books, but this is not just filler - there is also stacks of recipes. I loved the old-fashioned nature of the recipes and tried dozens of them (with varying degrees of success - I was a child!). I still think about making Vanity Cakes again, and I regularly make the Light Bread - which is fantastic. I highly recommend this, even for non-fans who are looking for a collection of traditional pioneer recipes, from head cheese to old-fashioned doughnuts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bettter Then I Expected This cookbook is filled with little snipits from the Little House books and great history lessons about how the recipes were orginally made. It is great for someone just learning to cook or the experienced. A very cute little cookbook for anyone.
