Thank you Michele! It's good to see you posting again!!

I think it is great when we take a step back into history with food.

I recently found a cookbook that takes recipes from the "Little House on the Prarie" series and actually makes them and adapts them to modern stoves. I bought it for my ten year old niece who is into cooking with her parents. I am excited to make a few things with her from it. It would be neat if bear lard is mentioned.

As always, Cowgirl's use of wild game is inspiring and looks amazing!
Thanks Grain Belt! These were the best biscuits I've had. I hope to try a pie crust with it too.
Your cookbook sounds very interesting...I bet your niece will love it! Hope you take pics of your cooks from the book! :)

Thanks again friends!
