Kristen’s Welcome…

Hey Folks!  This is actually my very first blogging experience and I can’t think of anything more fun than FOOD, glorious food!  I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember–from licking the beaters to cooking my very first Thanksgiving meal all by myself–and have long held a fascination for foods from the past that no longer appear in our day-to-day cooking habits.  As a medieval history enthusiast, redacting recipes from the 13-1500’s is a very entertaining hobby as well.  Occasionally, Wendi or I may wander into that territory to include it in our blog. Thanks for reading and check back often to see what we are up to.

Currently, I am thinking a bit about the food we ate when I was a little kid in the 70’s.  I am excited to be poring over my mom’s and grandmother’s old cookbooks in the search for old recipes that might be made new again.

    Hi Kristen.

    What a neat website! I will be bringing you three old recipe books. “Anyone Can Bake” by the Royal Baking Powder Co, 1927; Betty Crocker’s “Good and Easy Cook Book”, 1954; and “Baking is Fun!” by Ann Pillsbury, 1948. All belonged to Grandma Mary, and it’s obvious that they were well used from the drips and marks.

    In the Betty Crocker book, be sure to check out recipes for Pink Bunny and broiled lamb kidneys. That book also has a helpful menu for a Television Party. Going to someone’s home in 1954 to watch television was a BIG deal.

    See you soon. Love, Mom

    Woo Hoo!! Thanks Mom, I can’t wait to jump into those cookbooks. Pink Bunny, you say? Hmmm…Wonder what that’s all about. Might have to add it to our list of things to make >>>>>
