  1. My Grandmother wrote this book, and she interviewed my Great-grandmother. I didn’t even know that this book existed until today. Thank you for posting it and sharing with the world.


  2. Thank you for sharing this book. We are celebrating Native American Heritage Month where I work which will include a pot luck on the 22nd. The 2nd in command at my store is part Creek so I am sharing this link with her so she will have recipes to use for the pot luck. However, I was overjoyed to find a recipe for Sassafras Tea. My dad used to make the tea when I was a child, and my brothers and sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed it because it tasted like root beer. This was a wonderful find for me.

  3. I also was wishing I had the recipe for “Sassafras Tea”, I never see it offered at the dinners, since I was a child.

  4. As a Muskogee Creek Woman, I want to say MVTO for the recipe book. I will be enjoying each of them with thanksgiving. MVTO again.

  5. I have enjoyed reading this cookbook. We will try the fried bread during our study of Native Americans. Thank you.

  6. Thank you SO much for posting this. My mother and aunt were recalling the foods they used to eat growing up on Tiger Mountain last night. Since I enjoy cooking so much, I would love to try to recreate some of the dishes they remember eating when young (they’re 85 and 83).

  7. I’m originally from Dewey Oklahoma been in San Diego since 1974 and craving wild onions can’t find them here

  8. I will add it to my collection of cookbooks and will hopefully pass down the traditions of historic Creek Cookin to my kids, Mvto James!

  9. Thank you for posting this. It means more to me than the times the sun rises in the sky. There’s a void in my life that couldn’t be satisfied by just reading about my ‘ mysterious’ culture: I’m gonna attempt most of these and soak in the flavor of a people I wasn’t blessed to experience when I was younger. Recently, I got to make fried bread with my grandfather (he helped me, but I couldn’t remember the recipe). Finding this book has made my entire world.

  10. My dad was Ben Chaney. He passed away 2 years ago. I remember him working on this book when I was little. Makes me smile. I have an original with an unfinished cover that I use regularly. 😄

  11. My grandmother who has basically raised me was always cooking and like all of us who grew eating our native foods, fry bread was always the winner at the dinner table. I will cherish this recipe with other native recipes.

  12. Is there a place where this book can be purchased? I’d love to support the family of the writer!
