Serve up a heaping lesson of history with delicious recipes from our nation's past-- from the pilgrims' first feast to today's high-tech, low-fat fare
Who knew history could be so delicious? In The U.S. History Cookbook, you'll discover how Americans have lived and dined over the centuries. This scrumptious survey of periods and events in U.S. history mixes together a delectable batter of food timelines, kid-friendly recipes, and fun food facts throughout each chapter, including such fascinating tidbits as: Sunday was baked bean day in many colonial family homes; pioneers took advantage of the rough trails to churn milk into butter; the Girl Scouts first started selling cookies in the 1930s to save money for summer camp; and so much more
Kids will have a great time learning about the past while they cook up easy and yummy recipes, including:
* Cornmeal Blueberry Mush, a favorite dish of the Native Americans of the Northeast
* King Cake, the traditional cake served at the Mardi Gras Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana
* Amazing Country Scrambled Eggs, an essential part of any hearty pioneer breakfast
* Cocoanut Pudding, a favorite dessert of travelers riding the transcontinental railroad in the 1870s
* Baked Macaroni 'N' Cheese, a popular and inexpensive dish enjoyed during the Depression

Reviews - What do customers think about The U.S. History Cookbook: Delicious Recipes and Exciting Events from the Past?

Absolutely Outstanding !  May 29, 2006
Not just a great collection of recipes, this book has many wonderful little-known facts of American culinary history, such as the rise of "victory gardens," how the Caeser salad came about, and the origins of a ton of classic american dishes. It doesn't just give you the facts in list fashion: the author does an excellent job of summarizing the relevant time period and explaining why certain foods were preferred by people and how they came to be. I'm in my 30's and I love it just for the history! A+++!
Great Book for Kids!  May 7, 2004
This book is wonderful. My child took it out from the school library several times so we could try different recipies. I've decided to buy it since we both enjoy it so much.
