I bought this book as a gift for my mother. She is a big fan of the show, and of this kind of stuff in general. She almost cried when I gave this to her. She absolutely loves it. I looked through it before I gave it to her. It is neat. Its got a lot of behind the scenes information and pictures, as well as a lot of personal stories and stuff from the author about her experience doing the show. The recipes all relate to the theme of the show as well. If you like country cooking and/or Little House on the Prairie, or you have a family member who does, then this book seems like a must. It is nice and the content is outstanding.
I really bought this book because of the photos and background stories of one of my all time favorite TV shows, "Little House on the Prairie", written by my favorite character, of course, Laura. Who knew it would also turn out to be a very fine cookbook! With great photos, easy to follow directions, and wonderful recipes of yummy, comfort food, it's quickly becoming one of my very favorite cookbooks! So far I've tried 4 recipes and all have been a success. The Sausages with Apples were delicious, (I would just suggest half the amount of cinnamon), best Rice Pudding I've ever made, perfect Gingerbread, and the Real Deal Lasagna was voted by my family as outstanding! Those four alone are worth the price of admission, but there are many more I'm anxious to try such as her Dinner Rolls, Corn Bread with Scallions, Creamed Spinach with Bacon and Shallots, YUM, ... you get the drift... they all look terrific! This is a wonderful book, extremely well written with humor and generous praise and affection for her fellow actors. A fun and nostalgic read, but by all means, try the recipes! They are surprisingly good! Well done Melissa! You are not only a marvelous actress and a classy lady, but you write a darn good cookbook!
Just adding to the glowing reviews for Melissa Gilbert's My Prairie Cookbook. Part-cookbook, part-scrapbook complete with photos and newspaper clippings, memories include "Little House: The Early Years," "My Pa," "My Top Ten Favorite Little House Episodes," "Little House: The Later Years," "Bloopers and Goofs," "Frequently Asked Questions," and "After Little House." In interviews Melissa seems so down-to-earth and in this book so does her recipes and writing. I have not tried any recipes yet, but the instructions seem "no fuss" and have ingredients readily available. I am a non-meat eater and there is plenty in here for me. This book is printed and bound in the United States and beautifully put together. This will make a great birthday or holiday gift for the Little House fan in your life, or in my case, I purchased it as an early birthday gift for myself! Well done, Melissa! Kudos to photographer Dane Holweger as well.
I have never been so excited about a cookbook in all my life, I pre-ordered a couple weeks ago for an anniversary gift to myself, The recipes look and sound delicious, the book comes with stories and many wonderful pictures on set and of Melissa growing up, she shares many amazing recipes I haven't seen in other Little house on the prairie cookbooks from other authors, I am planning on making My Prairie cookbook Recipe Night at least once a week, For those on gluten free diet, I can see easy ways to substitute this ingredient for that ingredient,. Easy to follow recipes with beautiful pictures.. I am so happy I have this amazing book.. I cant decide which recipe I will make first... Many congratulations to Melissa on this well made, well thought out book... *Misty Hart-Bell
This isn't just a cookbook it's very neat reading about the cast and life she lived on and off the set. Wife couldn't put it down until she was done reading it cover to cover.
From cover to cover I was impressed with the recipes, pictures and the photo's Melissa chose to enhance her book. It was obvious she put a lot of sentiment and memories in-between the pages. Also included in the book are heart felt stories of her Little House on The Prairie Days. I think this book would make a great gift also. LOVE IT!!!!!
My wife is a Little House fan and when I saw Melissa Gilbert promoting this on the Steve Harvey show, I had to get it for her for our 11th wedding anniversary. A fan of the show and tv / movie trivia, I read it myself, and loved the behind the scenes stories and candor by Gilbert of what it was like to film the show and work with the people we all love so much. A very great read, and a great cookbook as well!!!!!!! Kudos to Melissa Gilbert for putting such a great collection of stories together!!!!
'Just purchased this copy for my Mom because I have been enjoying my own. The recipes I have made so far have been easy to follow and delicious; a great collection of comfort foods. While dinner is on the stove or in the oven, it's nice to sit back and share Melissa's memories of her days on the prairie; lots of pictures and fun facts and stories.
