A Pinch of This and a Handful of That, Historic Recipes of Texas 1830-1900
In a time of microwave cooking, frozen foods, and pizzas delivered-in-thirty-minutes-or-you-don't-pay, it is with awe and delight to find a book like A Pinch of This and a Handful of That. This collection of recipes and household hints of our foremothers compiled by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas tells it like it is. You not only cook by it, but also get a history lesson and a stretch of the imagination in the process. Every page brings a smile and respect for the pioneer woman.
