History Should Be Fun!

If you want to teach history the fun way, include cooking and baking to explore the time period, geographical area, and people you are studying. In our house, we love to cook and bake to learn history. We time travel right in the kitchen.

Here is our Ancient History Cookbook. We used it in our home and in our world history homeschool co-op. Everyone loved it! We would take turns making lunch based on the time period we were studying. From Eve's Apple & Walnut Salad in the Garden of Eden to Ancient Egypt's Leek and Onion Soup, we cooked and baked our way through time.

Here are some of the recipes we enjoy. You can make them in your kitchen and travel back in time. There are over 60 recipes in this cookbook!

  • Ice Age Slushies
  • Esau's Birthright Lentil Stew
  • Ruth's Barley Squares
  • Egyptian Mummy Dogs
  • Ezekiel Bread
  • Pythagoras' Cinnamon Right Triangles
  • Marathon Honey Puffs
  • Persian Chicken & Coconut Rice
  • Han Chinese Pepper Steak
  • Sea of Galilee Tilapia

Each section starts out with information on the time period or civilization in that section. Updated recipes, based on older recipes or food enjoyed at the time, follow. The resource section follows the recipes and includes living books, textbook readings, teaching audios, and movies you can watch. Menu suggestions are included too. At the end of the book, you get our world history co-op lesson plans.

Here are the sections in this cookbook:

  • Time Began in a Garden
  • It Began to Rain
  • Early Civilizations
  • Egypt & Israel
  • Israel, Assyrians, & Babylonians
  • Ancient China & India
  • Persians & Medes
  • Greek City-States
  • Roman Empire & Israel’s Messiah

History is a favorite subject at the Curtis house and when we added cooking and baking to learning about “the olden days,” It just made everything more fun. When I talked about cutting the historical meals out of co-op one year, my son said, “Mom, you can’t do that. The food is my favorite part! Cooking, baking, and EATING are the best part of learning history!”

I want to begin by saying these recipes sound very good and delicious. I first bought the America History Cookbooks, which I was very happy with, but I wasn't as happy with this cookbook. I really don't understand how many of the recipes have much to [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
