Part cookbook, part tv star memoir, Melissa Gilbert shares her family recipes with photos and other memories from the Little House on the Prairie tv show. Her love and admiration for Michael Landon shines through her book. Although she calls them frontier recipes, they're really recipes for the food she loves and cooks for her modern family. One of the interesting tidbits is that the cast and crew ate a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken and cornbread on the set during filming.

What I liked mostly in this book, were the behind the scene stories from "Little House on the Prairie", and the photos. The recipes seem simple, and easy to prepare, but I haven't tried any of them, so I can't tell if they turn out good or not.

Melissa Gilbert shares memories from The Little House of the Prairie television show.
The recipes are from Melissa's personal collection that she served her family and friends. She does say that she was not totally authentic to the show but the cobblers, biscuits, chicken and stew would have been dishes Ma cooked.
I loved the photos and stories from the show.

The author obviously enjoyed her growing up on Little House on the Prairie, and this book reflects that. The recipes are very doable family-friendly ones using ingredients that you can find in your local grocery. I tried the peach pudding last night and it came out just like the picture, and very tasty too with a bit of ice cream. The bonus with this book is all the photographs and the memories she shares with us.

"We ate a lot of fried chicken on LIttle House. Seems like it was a part of nearly every picnic or dinner scene we did."
