  4. Darla Kerns

    I bought Secrets of the Great Old-Timey Cooks and Mama’s in the Kitchen and just loved reading them and trying the recipes. Very interesting and different from the other books I buy and read!

  5. The Midwest Book Review .

    An ideal and inexpensive gift for kitchen cookbook collectors. Secrets of the Great Old-Timey Cooks is a wonderful compendium of historic American recipes, folklore and country wisdom. Profusely illustrated. If you like to cook and have a fondness for ‘the good old days,’ then secure a copy of Secrets of the Great Old-Timey Cooks.
