Customer Reviews: Love the old time recipes!
A trip into the past. I will be
trying some of the recipes soon. I grew up with one of the recipe under a
A beautifully written book - I
like how they kept the old style in the recipes. Now I know what
"clabber" is. One of my favorites was the bread section. I also
enjoyed the early part of the book before the recipes where the author talked a
bit about the life of a pioneer. It was funny to imagine the chicken coop going
along with them as they traveled.
Unlike a lot of cookbooks that
use old recipes, you can actually make these recipes. I am somewhat of a
biscuit and gravy snob. I made the Baking Powder Biscuits this morning. They
were excellent. Too bad its a week day or they would be swimming in homemade
sausage gravy. If you like good, down
home cooking you have to get this book. Highly recommended.
It's very nice to see and read
how people in good old times cooked... for us who love to cook that can be very
inspiring... Thanks for the nice recipes too, it will be very interesting to
try them... :-)
What a delight this refreshing
cook book is. R. Steven Thompson has truely written and put together a very
unique and interesting configuration of simple pioneer recipes that catches the
spirit of old fashioned, homespun cooking. I am so exited to try the home made
yeast. A most wonderful addition to my cook book library. Looking forward to
more books from this author.
