** I was given a Laura doll in order to faciliate this review. As always, I only review and promote those things that I genuinely enjoy. All opinions are my own. **
Growing up, my very favorite tv show was Little House on the Prairie. I’d sit in the kitchen and watch it on a tiny black and white television. Yes, I’m dating myself here. The series aired from 1974-1983. The timelessness of this show is obvious since it still airs You can still watch the show on
One of my most treasured gifts was the set of Little House books that I received one Christmas. I still have that set today, forty years later.
Years later, as a homeschooling Mama, I introduced my children to LHotP through a unit study guide, The Prairie Primer. We took our time in Laura’s little world and thoroughly enjoyed our years there.
One of our favorite recipes that we’ve tried is Johnny Cakes, which is from Little House in the Big Woods. “Laura always wondered why bread made of corn meal was called johnny-cake. It wasn’t cake. Ma didn’t know, unless the Northern soldiers called it johnny-cake because the people in the South, where they fought, ate so much of it. They called the Southern soldiers Johnny Rebs. Maybe they called the Southern bread, cake, just for fun.
“Ma had heard some say it should be called journey-cake. She didn’t know. It wouldn’t be very good bread to take on a journey.“
You can find the recipe and so much more on the Little House website! The site is filled with history, episode guide, recipes, craft ideas, upcoming events, and even a general store!
Imagine my glee when I was contacted to showcase these new LHotP dolls!
Laura comes in an eyelet ruffle-front nightgown and cap. Also included are Laura’s rag doll, a pillow, patchwork quilt, and a clever keepsake box.
