Overview

Part storybook and part cookbook, A LITTLE COOKBOOK FOR A LITTLE GIRL introduces us to Margaret, a pint-sized and persistent scamp who desperately wants to do "little girl cooking," all by herself. Her mother, her grandmother, her "Pretty Aunt" and her "Other Aunt" attempt to hold her off until she's older, but Margaret prevails and learns to create Victorian-era breakfasts, suppers, dinners and desserts.

We've left Caroline French Benton's original language and all of the antique colloquialisms of the early 1900's intact, but have edited the visual format for easier modern reading of this lovely antique cookbook. In addition, we've annotated a few things, in case you aren't quite sure what a "timbale" is, or just how much a "saltspoonful" holds.

If you enjoy Margaret's culinary adventures in A LITTLE COOKBOOK FOR A LITTLE GIRL, be sure to watch for future volumes in our Caroline French Benton series.

"Nothing that really made my mouth water, and a little like a story, but there were a few good looking recipes in there i think i might try sometime sooner or later. Have you made any other books i could read? I'm running out of good books to read. I mean, Barns and Noble¿ is running out of good books for me to read. Bye for now, and i'll look for your books!"

I think it has very funny resapies that are pretty wierd. I don't think i will be tring any of these resipies any time soon. But they are pretty funny. I mean why would any one let something like that sitting to cook over night the stories are pretty funny also. If you are looking for a funny book i would defenitly get rhis very,very,very, funny book. I would recamend you get this book it will defenetly give you a laugh or two. By: someone.

This book has a cute story and shows how people used to cook. There is also some information that is still applicable for today's beginning cook or someone that wants to learn to cook healthier and use less processed foods.

This has really wierd recipes that I don't think I want to try. I don't like how it was more of a story than a cookbook, either.:) I don't really recommend buying this.
