A book any Little House on the Praire fan would want in their library.After reading, you will have many hours of enjoyable recipes to make for you and your family.
Lots of pictures and stories from the series and great recipes.
I couldn't wait to purchase this tribute to "Little House On The Prairie". The recipes really have little to do with the show specifically, which was a disappointment (I was hoping for some contributions from other cast members), but Melissa Gilbert brings the personal, tried and true flavor to the style of cookbook I prefer. My Mother collected cookbooks and read them as if they were books and "My Prairie Cookbook" IS both. Half-Pint shares her experience, her life in Walnut Grove, transporting the reader and bringing back all of the wonderful memories of the Little House series. There are touching, "scrapbook-like" pictures from the show and behind the scenes, as well as photos of many of the recipes. Melissa tells her own story about the recipes, making the reader want to try them all. I can't wait to cook and eat with Half-Pint and neither will you!
