    What a great 'old-time' book!

    This has lots and lots of old-fashioned recipes that have been adapted for today's kitchens, without losing their classic charms. It also has 'old-school' advice, which is very pleasing and useful indeed.
    The photos are positively gorgeous, and they transport you to a time gone by. Included also are inspirational quotes to warm your heart.
    A well-recommended book.

    Spectacular

    Old-Time Farmhouse Cooking genuinely takes the reader back in time. With black and white photos showing people of its time, recipes and tips taken from magazines at the time. Here is a classic tip! I almost died with laughter. This tip came from Farm Life September 1927, 'Every Farm Wife Needs...Several neat, becoming, washable house dresses.' I can say times have changed when I drop my son off at Kindergarten, and a lot of the mothers are in sweatpants, no make-up and their hair is tied back. There are some great recipes inside this book to: Irish Beef Stew, Apple Dowdy, Pickled Okra and Seed Cake. If you yearn for Grandma's cooking, or if you are interested in historic America, please check into this book. It really is a nice book!
