    I thought this book was fascinating a sort of glimpse into the past I would be somewhat hesitant though to try some of recipes with it's wonky measurements For instance what's the difference between a coffee cup and a teacup? The eggnog recipe was a hoot with enough booze in it to light a fire DEdit I just saw the measurement index in the back One coffee cup is 8 oz I still think the measurements and heating times are wonky lol

    This is a wonderful read especially the recipe for suirrel soup You must strain the soup before eating in order to avoid the troublesome little bones The desserts are wonderful My husband even made a brandy soaked apple cake attempting to follow the recipe The measurements a wine glass full can be challenging How big a wine glass? Red or white? The full adventure is on our blog Letters from Shenanigan Valley You can read this cookbook free by downloading it from Googlebookscom

    My copy is actually from 1903; based on the full title here I'm assuming it's the same complete household management book It includes priceless medical information including the tip that wrapping one's chest in a muskrat skin is a guaranteed cure for asthma along with a remarkable breadth of recipes cleaning products etiuette rules home safety tips and historical tidbits about what life was like in and around the White House when it was first published The recipes are tough to use; this is before standard measurements or temperatures so whether it's useful is somewhat dependent on your ability to handle a recipe that includes soupspoons for measuring utensils and directions like cook in a hot oven until done

    I absolutely loved this book As I pursued through the pages familiar with the food and dishes as I am I was amazed at the finished dishes provided with the limited ingredients available at the time I so loved reading sections on the use of offal the odds and ends and bits and pieces taken from tail to snout I freuently use the book for reference and actually enjoyed this read as one of the top 10 books I read in the past year Happy happy happy I was referencing the pages for creative uses

    I love the old world look at the culinary arts A time when the kitchen was the heart of the house and the life blood of the family Beyond classic recipes of the Americana this book also contains lost health remedies etiuette and menus for heads of state It is a look into the past that reminds us not just of how far we have come but of how young our nation is

    Great ReferenceI was super excited to come across this It has a wealth of information in it It covers fine dining household recipes cleaning recipes carving eats seasonal meats and much Although it's for 1887 I feel that some of this can apply today
