Cordelia reviewed Samantha's Cookbook: A Peek at Dining in the Past With Meals You Can Cook Today (American Girls Collection) on + 153 more book reviews
Girls like Samantha would learn about etiquette as well as managing a household. Learn about the recipes that were common in the early 1900's as well as the inventions of the time and plan a tea party for your friends (and dolls). What a great way to compare the many changes that have occurred over the years. Recipes include breakfast (Cheese omelet, blueberry muffins & more), Dinner (Cream of Carrot Soup, Roasted Beef Tenderloin) and favorite foods (Cream Cheese & Walnut Sandwiches, Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Lemon Ice) and more. A fun way to learn about the past.
These books are absolutely fabulous. They help bring the American Girl stories to life for both my children. I am actually using them as part of a history unit study for my daughter along with the story books, craft books, mini-dolls, and mini-magnetic world. They are perfect for helping your children with their math and reading without them even knowing it! As you can tell, we love them!
