This was another book I looked at for research while writing my Nanowrimo novel set in the Midwest in 1888. This was about an era several decades before when my story began, but it had some helpful information about common ways to cook a meal and other domestic tasks like making candles, smoking meat, etc. While many of the instructions are for the modern girl and use modern conveniences, there are short sections before the modern girl's instructions that describe the techniques used back in the day.
