In My Prairie Cookbook, Melissa Gilbert, star of Little House on the Prairie, offers fans comforting family recipes and childhood favorites. From prairie breakfasts and picnic lunches to treats inspired by Nellie’s restaurant, the 80 simple and delicious dishes—crispy fried chicken, pot roasts, corn bread, apple pie, and more—present Bonnet Heads (die-hard Little House fans) with the chance to eat like the Ingalls family.

Gilbert’s personal recollections and memorabilia, including behind-the-scenes stories, anecdotes, and more than 75 treasured scrapbook images, accompany the recipes. With answers to the most-asked questions from fans—on topics including the biggest bloopers, on-set romances, and what Michael Landon was really like—My Prairie Cookbook is a cherished memento for Little House fans and fans of simple prairie cooking alike.


"Melissa's writing is so warm and personal that it makes me feel like I'm being wrapped in a big, warm blanket, and the recipes are approachable and delicious. I am so proud of my first fake mama and will be buying up copies of this book to give as gifts."
Jennifer Garner, actor
“Down-home, hearty, and flavorful, these breakfast favorites from Melissa Gilbert are sure to warm your kitchen and your loved ones’ hearts.”
