Feed your mind with reading and some treats from Samantha's time with her cook book

While researching Samantha's time period, I came across a Samantha cookbook that was published in 1994.
This 44 page soft covered book that contains recipes and information about dining in the 1900's.
It is out of print from what I can tell but looks like it would be a great resource and fun cookbook!

Some of the recipes included are Strawberries and Cream, Saratoga Potatoes, Blueberry Muffins, Cream of Carrot soup (a favorite of mine) , Corn Oysters, Ice Cream Snowballs, Apple Brown Betty, Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Gingerbread and Lemon Ice.

I have not been able to find a copy of my own of this book but I am looking for one! 
I have linked the recipe names above to on line recipes so if you can not find a copy of your own and you still want to give a try to some recipes from the 1900's you have them easily accessible.
I am so enjoying researching Samantha's time period, and I hope you will join us Feb 1st for our first book 
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at
