Western Cookbook – 48  Pages

Step into our log cabin village and sample some authentic pioneer cooking! From New England to Texas, from the Appalachians to Pike’s Peak, pioneer cooks had to be tough and self-sufficient–able to whip up hearty meals with little more than an iron pot and a sharp knife. Recipes range from Chisholm Trail Chili to Appalachian Stack Cake and Grandma Cody’s Applesauce Cookies. If pioneer life has left you bruised and battered, we’ve included some curious remedies and questionable cure-alls. This book is loaded with captivating snippets of information,  recipes, vintage art and photos and much more! 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, 168 pages.
