I, at the grand old age of 32, was a little disappointed that this book contained only a few recipes, as a lot of eating goes on in the Anne books. I was particularly looking for Susan Baker's Silver and Gold cake as the idea of this cake always fascinates me when I re-read Rainbow Valley and it was not included. (I actually found the recipe online today @

However, this would be an excellent for children first learning to cook and bake. I love that each

Alright, so, I don't remember making anything out of this book other than raspberry cordial, and I DO remember that going very well. Other than that, this was part of my childhood, flipping through the pages and asking mom if we could make a cake or something. I think we made the pound cake? But again, I can't be sure. Overall, a fun book to have. Most of the rating comes from sentimentality. Like other reviewers have said, there's a lot of cooking that goes on in this series which doesn't make ...more

If you are thinking of hosting an Anne-themed birthday party, a fun summer celebration, a tea party to be thankful for the change of seasons,perhaps the naming of your favourite dryad then this cookbook is a must have.

I like some of the recipes but I was hoping it would be more like the Little House cookbook with accurate historic recipes but in there original context.

Recently made the second recipe I've done from this book and so far so good. The previous I had made was a yummy moist pound cake. This last one was called Cowcumbers. Chicken pasta salad, w mayo n celery n carrot in cucumbers that are hollowed out. Really good.

This is a darling cookbook, but be prepared! Most of the recipes are authentic to the time period, and the chocolate caramels will NOT be what you are expecting! :)

Cute little book. Probably would have ADORED it when I was about 13/14. I grew up loving Anne of Green Gables. I still plan on making raspberry cordial!

Lovely companion while reading the Anne of Green Gable series. Enjoyed making some of these recipes and a spot of tea. Kids to adults will enjoy this little treasure.

I was hoping for something a little more authentic to cook practices during that time period. I'm fairly certain they did not have paper towels, plastic bags, or microwaves.

I read this as a kid, so I don't really remember that much. It's a cute book designed to let you cook some of the dishes mentioned in the book.
