My Prairie Cookbook - Inside the Cookbook
5 Stars / Top Pick Cookbook!
My Prairie Cookbook is a must have for Little House watchers and readers alike. I was so excited to see that Melissa Gilbert compiled this. This was one of my favorite television shows growing up. I love looking at the pictures from the show and reliving fond memories. The bloopers and goofs section is hilarious and interesting.
The recipes are easy to follow and there are pictures included. One of my favorites is the Cucumber-Dill Salad:
4 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
3 cloves of garlic
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1T freshly squeezed lemon juice
Freshly ground white pepper
3 T Extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 Maui onion, very thinly sliced (optional)
Place the cucumber slices on a flat plate. Salt them lightly, and tilt the plate so that excess water will drain off easily. Let stand 1 hour.
Pass the cloves of garlic through the garlic press- add yogurt, dill, lemon juice, and salt and white pepper to taste. Stir until mixed. Add oil and stir vigorously until blended.
Place the drained cucumber slices in a bowl, add onion, pour dressing over. Toss gently. Refrigerate for 1 hour and serve.
There are many more recipes you will love in this one. Reminders of the prairie just make it that much more fun!
