“My Prairie Cookbook by Melissa Gilbert”
As a child and even now I enjoyed countless episodes of “Little House on the Prairie” I also remember as a child and well into my teens how envious I was of the Prairie Family As a mother, grandmother & wife I have always tried to instil the same values in my own children as did Actors like the Ingalls Family.
I’m not wrong in saying there will be many a family out there who tried or did do the same. My middle daughter used to say to me how she would love to have dressed the same way they did back then, she loves the cloths.
I can understand where she is coming from because as a child I used to wish I was born in those times, maybe that’s why I have always envisioned that one day I would live in a cottage in the country.
Like Melissa said in her “Introduction” For me Little house on the prairie means “Home” I can identify with that because for me home means husband, children, love and faith. If you have all of those then you’re doing a good job.
So you can imagine my delight when I came across the Cookbook. I ordered it up on Amazon (Great Price and definitely worth every penny).
Not only is it filled with recipes that I can’t wait to try but there are lots of photo’s and stories of Melissa’s days back in the prairie, and I so enjoyed reading them too. This cookbook has been put together so well, it has that “Old Book” back in the day look and feel to it which makes it even more special, and very well laid out inside.
Melissa is running for Congress:
“I’m running for Congress to make life a little easier for all the families who feel they have fallen through the cracks in today’s economy. I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done, “Melissa writes on her campaign website”
I’m based in the UK, but if I were in the U.S I would most definitely support Melissa in her Campaign, I Love her as an Actress but most importantly I love her value’s, faith and her continuous effort In wanting to make changes not just in today’s society but for the generation to come. GOOD LUCK MELISSA GILBERT.
“So for all you Prairie Fan’s out there get yourself a copy I promise you, you won’t be disappointed”.
Happy Reading – Happy Cooking. 📖
