    No cookbook collector should be without this book on their shelf. Not only does she provide wonderful recipes, she also includes the history of the recipe, what country it came from and how it evolved in the United States. Also, full of great little quotes and sayings from the 19th century.

    I have always wanted to try cooking like my great-great grandmothers. Sounds like fun!

    Pioneers definitely fall into my homesteading review week as they had to use only things they grew to cook, no local grocery for them to run and pick up some frozen pizzas for dinner! When I saw this cookbook was out I sent to the publisher Leatherwood Press, asking for a review copy. I knew it would be right up my alley! I love reviewing books that I am excited about without even seeing them first!

When I saw this cookbook was out I sent to the publisher Leatherwood Press, asking for a review copy. I knew it would be right up my alley! I love reviewing books that I am excited about without even seeing them first! I first noticed a recipe for Machaca which I recently had a friend of Mexican heritage tell me about for using up some of my roasts. A great recipe for basically making a tender shredded beef to use in other recipes. Pasties or meat pies are in the main dishes, something the upper Michigan folks know much about. Chicken dishes, even seafood, though I do question the recipe for boiled lobster, I am thinking the good ole pioneers didn’t get too much lobster come their way. Interesting recipes that the pioneers used and perhaps some current day homesteader would try like Baked Rabbit and Roasted Duck. The recipe for Roasted Raccoon I could do without. Those varmints each my chickens and I don’t think I could roast and eat them. As typical of cookbooks we have our main dishes, soups and stews, sauces and dressings, side dishes, breads and biscuits, desserts, and candies and drinks. I love the section on food preservation, great idea for a pioneer cookbook. It even has a small section on self-care and remedies for your basics. I will soon be getting some whole wheat berries so I can grind my own flour and try some of these hearty bread recipes. I had hoped to do that before my review so I could post pictures, but you will just have to stay tuned! Bread was sure a staple food for the pioneers. There is reminiscent clip art throughout, and fun little pioneer sayings and poems. It has a definite pioneer feel to it. There aren’t any photographs, I know you wanted to see the Roasted Raccoon, I did too. A few here and there would have been fun if the background was pioneer/rustic like. Overall I really enjoyed this book. I know a lot of recipes can be found online now, but that just doesn’t give the cook the same feel as having a good ole cookbook in hand! Thanks to Leatherwood Press for allowing me to review this book.

    S.P.

    This was a free book through Goodreads! Yey! It is, as the name suggests, a cookbook. It doesn't have lots of glossy photographs of food no one has ever seen outside of an episode of Nigella Bites, it doesn't have a photograph and endorsement of a celebrity chef, desperate to show the world the extent of his culinary skills and unique interpretation of a truffle souffle - the pictures are in fact basic line drawings, mostly there to break up the text.

It doesn't have lots of glossy photographs of food no one has ever seen outside of an episode of Nigella Bites, it doesn't have a photograph and endorsement of a celebrity chef, desperate to show the world the extent of his culinary skills and unique interpretation of a truffle souffle - the pictures are in fact basic line drawings, mostly there to break up the text. What does have is 170 odd pages of very simple recipes, each with a little snippet of history or factoid related to the dish. It is refreshing to come across a cookbook that contains simple - pretence-free - instructions for basic foodstuffs. The sort of food grandma and great-grandma probably made before the corporations invented supermarkets and prepackaged noodles. Actually the selection of dishes is probably a bit more varied than my ancestors would've considered proper as it covers meals created by all the immigrants and natives of the colonies during those founding years, with a section on baking and puddings too (and strangely soap?) Basic these foods may be, but good for the soul and good for the bank balance. If i was starting over looking for a cheap and healthy way to eat and learn how to make good food, i think this book would be a welcome find indeed. I think I'll give the traditional beef stew a go tomorrow..

    I recieved my copy of The Pioneer Cookbook through Goodreads Firstreads for free. I recieved this book, eagerly tore open the envelope so hold my new cookbook. Its very charming, a little rustic and interesting. I'll explain my reasons for calling it as such. The recipes in this book are classics, I have known many of these recipes for a long time. However that may have to do with the fact I cook like a little old Ukranian woman. The recipes are good; good food, wholesome, filling and tastey.

However that may have to do with the fact I cook like a little old Ukranian woman. The recipes are good; good food, wholesome, filling and tastey. Its the meaning of classic cooking, we have been making these dishes for the past countless decades and many more to come. Some dishes do have that rustic feeling to them, which is not bad. Overall the cookbook is a good one, however if you are more of an experienced cook you will find that you may not gain much from this book.

    I have this cookbook and I love it!!! I've had it for awhile, but I didn't think to do a review in Goodreads. Sorry everyone if you've missed out! Please don't make fun of me, but a lot of history is boring to me. However, when you put fun old-timey phrases, along with explanations of why things are the way they are, and add yummy food to that, I'm in! Yes, I learned things from this that were quite interesting. It was also fun to read the sections about hunting and preparing the game, since I m I have this cookbook and I love it!!!

Yes, I learned things from this that were quite interesting. It was also fun to read the sections about hunting and preparing the game, since I married into a family of hunters and fisherpeople. Fortunately for me, my wonderful husband likes to cook most of the stuff he brings home, so I get the best of both worlds! This makes a great gift especially for Christmas, go and get one now!!

    Really liked this book. It has the recipes in it that I cherished from childhood. Although no one can duplicate mom or grandma's food, this book surely does try. Really liked this book.
