The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook by Kate Macdonald

This delightful little book made me so happy.  Every turn of a page revealed another delight.  There are so many reasons to love this:

·         The author is a granddaughter of LM Montgomery
·         She is also an expert on food and nutrition – so the recipes look really good
·         But the best bits are the graphics – absolutely delightful drawings of flowers etc – and great photos of the food.
·         Some of the recipes also have whimsical names like – Gilbert's Hurry Up Dinner, Poetical Egg Salad Sandwiches and Cowcumber Boats

Gilbert's Hurry Up Dinner

The book is theoretically targeted at children who are beginning to be interested in cooking – but don't let that put you off.


  1. What a delightful sounding book!! It does sound like a wonderful and interesting book to read.

  2. Oh, I need to get this book! This is the first I’ve heard of it so thank you! By the way....would you like me to send you The Little Giant of Aberdeen? I’d be happy to!

  3. I'm so excited that you did a review of this book because I've been considering buying it, but I wasn't sure if it would be good or not.
    Is there a recipe for Raspberry Cordial in the book? I've always wanted to make that.

  4. I have a Little House cookbook based on Laura Ingalls Wilder's series, and it's been fun to explore. I'm sure this is the same kind of wonderful!
