Tasty Tuesday–The Little Women Cookbook

I’ve been sharing pictures of the recipes we’ve tried from The Little Women Cookbook every week…here’s a look at the full selection! We tried breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes, plus lots of desserts, and even a few beverages. We didn’t make everything in the book…some recipes weren’t that appealing to us (milk toast), some we couldn’t find the proper ingredients for (buckwheat pancakes), and some just didn’t make the cut right now, but we may come back to later (even more dessert recipes!).

In case you’re wondering, here’s the full list:

  • Cheese and Jam Turnovers
  • Amy’s Frothy French Drinking Chocolate
  • Amy’s Lemonade
  • Amy’s “Christmas Day” Muffins
  • Apple Orchard Chicken
  • “Lemon Cheese” Tartlets
  • Hannah’s Pounded Potatoes
  • Maple-Cornmeal Drop Biscuits
  • New England Fish Chowder
  • Black Raspberry Jelly Cake with Lemon Cream
  • “Indian Meal” Griddle Cakes
  • Meg’s Chicken and Macaroni Soup
  • Oatmeal Porridge with Apples, Cinnamon, and Maple Syrup
  • Meg’s Macaroni and Cheese
  • Vanilla Butter Cookies with Mr. Bhaer’s Chocolate Drops
  • Hannah’s Smoked Sausage and Potato “Mess”
  • Meg’s Currant Jelly Sauce
  • Beef Stew with Molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Chicken Salad with Grapes and Almonds
  • Parisian Cream Puffs
  • Apple Slump
  • Meg’s “Plum” Pudding
  • Apple Turnovers
  • Jo’s Much-Improved Corned Beef
  • Cheese, Butter, and Celery Sandwiches
  • Jo’s Shellfish Relish
  • Roast Beef Picnic Sandwiches
  • Jo’s Gingerbread
  • 1850 Tartar Sauce
  • Baked New England Cod

This was a fantastic cookbook, and every recipe we tried was excellent. Some of the top favorites were the Parisian cream puffs, Amy’s lemonade, Jo’s gingerbread, and the cheese and jam turnovers. We’ll definitely be using the cookbook more to repeat selections in the future!

Update: I finally found buckwheat flour and we tried the buckwheat pancakes…they were amazing!
