If you don't happen to have any buffalo meat in the house, but are looking for delicious, down-to-earth food ideas then you'll want a copy of this book which features authentic prairie recipes.

The first chapter contains recipes from German, Czechoslovakian, and Scandinavian ancestors, as well as the American Indian. Other chapters feature desserts, meats, including all kinds of wild game, recipes for straight-from-the-stream fish, preserving fruit, and a delightful one called, "Make-It- From-Scratch," with recipes for homemade cheese, dandelion wine, soda crackers and popsickles.—AB Vegetables your dish , . , then this cookbook, "The Chinese Vegetarian Cook Book by Gary Lee, published by the Nitty Gritty Productions is for you.

Most of the recipes' ingredients are available at the market in most larger American cities. For easy reference and quick selection, the vegetable recipes are arranged alphabetically. The first is a for apple, and the last Won Ton Dough. The latter can be used with a number of stuffings, and included in the directions is how to make it with an electric skillet.
