Wendi’s welcome

Hi all! Welcome to Resurrected Recipes. Kristen and I have been talking for a while about creating a blog to post experiments with old recipes. I’m a long time blogger, with blogs at slumberland.org and beaconhill.seattle.wa.us. I’m also a historian with an interest in pop culture, so old cookbooks and recipes have always fascinated me. I’ve noticed that just in my own lifetime, foods that were common have become rare and vice versa. In some cases, the foods have become rarer for good reason, but lots of old recipes are wonderful. We’ll be posting our experiments with old recipes here, along with interesting links, scans of old ads and cookbooks, and other fun stuff.

Warning: my personal favorite category is baking, so it could be dangerous. I do love the sweet stuff.
