Fluffy buckwheat pancakes dripping with butter and brown sugar syrup are the perfect winter breakfast.
The Little House Books by Laura Ingalls Wilder are near and dear to my heart. My mom had read the series twice through to us by the time I was eight and I read them as my first “big books” when I was nine. To this day, they are my favourite children’s series.
I love the stories Laura wove of her family’s adventures and trials as pioneers, making their stamp in history.
I am and always have been drawn to the passages about the food they prepared. The stories are a traditional foodie’s dream as they transport you back to a day when it was common knowledge that cows should eat grass that produces rich yellow cream, that freshly rendered lard should a kitchen staple, and that white sugar is only for special treats.
