More About the Author

Roxe Anne Peacock is the author of History Lover's Cookbook which took over ten years to complete. It is based on 19th century recipes, which were then transferred for the modern cook, and the Civil War. Her inspiration for the book was due to her family re-enacting the Civil War at events around the country for over ten years. Her husband, Tom Peacock, first person re-enactor George Armstrong Custer, is still re-enacting over fifteen events a year.

She is also the author of two mysteries, Fatal Catch and Leave No Trace. Fatal Catch takes place in Grand Detour, Illinois where she lived as a young girl. If you love fishing and a good mystery, this book is for you. Leave No Trace takes place in Carlsbad, New Mexico where everything is not what it seems.

Currently, Roxe Anne is working on two cookbooks, Smokin' Good Eats and Cooking to Live. She is also working on a science fiction series.

When Roxe Anne isn't writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, friends, pets and reading good books.

This is one of those rare cookbooks that while nice to have on kindle.. is one that I'd rather have a physical copy. This is a very unique cookbook as it has all of these little stories followed with the recipes to make what is being eaten in the story as well! So many wonderful color photos too! If you would like to experience your own bit of time travel.. get this book.. and prepare to go back in time! I like that the author included various recipes that I had in my own collection from my Grandmothers.. and even explained what some of the items were.. that I was unsure of.. such as a fruit called quince! Most of the recipes have easy to find ingredients found in most pantries. Well written, well indexed.. One that should be in every history lover's collection!

What a marvelous look at history with details I never knew. The photographs are amazing and the recipes are delightful to view. Interesting how similiar they are to some we cook today. These people certainly did not have the variety of food choices we have, yet the food looks hearty, healthy and tasty. Please take the time to download this book and share with your friends, if only for the historic value.

From the popular 19th century beverage, Raspberry Shrub to the delectable Planked Shad Bake to the decadent Bread Pudding with Custard Sauce, we're swept along on an exqusite journey through time via this remarkable compilation of the Civil War years from Ms. Peacock's perspective. With each recipe made, each picture shared and each morsal of history put to words...our insight AND our taste buds will never be the same! Highly recommended. ENJOY!

The author of this delightful eBook takes you on a trip that is interesting as well as delicious.
Filled with 'receipts' and sprinkled with lovely photos of reenactment folk as well as the dishes.

Deviled eggs tied together with bits of fine ribbon, how charming! The raspberry shrub is to die for, and I'll be making it a lot this summer. And I can't wait to can some brandied peaches.

Much, much more than historical receipts, Ms. Peacock takes you through the Civil War era like someone who has lived it.
Clearly from a Southern perspective, but this Yankee found it fascinating and informative.
