This book has recipes and information appropriate to the times of Kirsten, Samantha, and Molly. You can create a pioneer breakfast or a Victorian dinner, and you can see a sample shopping list from September of 1944 (and how much items cost in cents and points). It shows how Molly's lunch was packed, how wooden iceboxes were used to keep food cold, and how Samantha's table should be set. It discusses butlers and silent servants and really provides a glimpse into the time periods of these three American Girls. If you use the recipes, you can create some mighty tasty eats! My daughters both love this book, and we are thrilled to have it as part of our collection.

Pros:
The book has lots of great historical information. The recipes are written in an easy-to-follow way, which is helpful for young children. I have an 8-year-old. I think that elementary aged children could make everything in this book with a little help from an adult. None of the recipes calls for rare or difficult to find ingredients. I really liked the way the Kirsten section mentioned several times that cookies weren't a modern breakfast item, and explained that Kirsten ate a cookie for breakfast and snack because of all the hard phyiscal work that was involved in pioneer life.

Cons:
Some of the "recipes" aren't really new to us. We know how to make hard boiled eggs, peanut butter sandwiches, and how to cut carrots into curls with a peeler. Overall, the Molly section was a letdown.

I was so happy to find this on Amazon tonight. I had this cookbook as a child and loved it. Samantha (who has since been retired) was my favorite doll because I loved reading about life in the Victorian age. I will never forget how delicious the corn cakes from Samantha's menu tasted. My niece loves her Rebecca doll and I hope she loves this cookbook too!
