 Do you want to have more fun when you teach history?

In our house, we love to cook and bake to learn history. We time travel right in the kitchen. Here is our Time Travel in the Kitchen: American History Cookbook. We used it in our home and in our American history co-op. Everyone loved it!

Each family took a week to make a meal from Colonial Times, The Alamo, The Transcontinental Railroad, The Gilded Age, or World War II--whatever we were studying. Some of the recipes are adapted from original recipes from old history cookbooks and famous recipe collections. I adapted Louisa May Alcott's Blueberry Slump,  Thomas Jefferson's Monticello Noodles, and Martha Washington's Fruit Cake. I think you will have a blast cooking and eating your 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 300 recipes in this cookbook!

  • Navajo Fry Bread
  • Hoecakes
  • Turtle Soup
  • Hasty Pudding
  • Carolina Muddle

Each section begins with a little history lesson on important events and people along with information about foods and eating habits of the time period. Also included in this great cookbook are resources after each section of recipes. These resources include living books & historical fiction to write, movies you can watch, and sample menus using the cookbook. 

Here are the sections in this cookbook:

  • Native American Recipes

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 next year, my son said, “Mom, you can’t do that. The food is the best part!” Please let me know how you enjoy using this cookbook.

This is a very well-organized e-book. It is divided into sections (i.e. Native Americans, Colonial America, etc). Within each section there is historical information pertaining to people, places, events, and food. At the end of each section is a list [...]

Original electronic
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.
