If you know me personally, then you know I’m pretty big about making things from scratch. What started as an interest in eating healthy and organic when I was pregnant with Celeste evolved into full blown obsession with my husband’s cancer diagnosis. Now, we’re certainly not perfect, and we can’t afford to eat organic all […]

Vintage Recipe-Stewed Chicken with Raisin Dumplings

June 15, 2011

I bought a dutch oven a while back. In my vintage cookbooks, I see a lot of recipes calling for a dutch oven. After I got it, I didn’t run across one recipe that called for a dutch oven! So I took out my 1968 Casserole Cookbook and searched for one. At last, I found […]

Blueberry Pie was the first pie I ever made, with my Grandma Oma when I was about ten. We made a lattice crust, and it was perfect. I’ve tried lattice crusts since, but I am usually too impatient! This recipe is from my 1960’s Betty Crocker cookbook, but I can’t imagine that blueberry pie recipes […]

A different sort-of sugar cookie- Vintage Recipe

April 7, 2011

Yeah, a sugar cookie recipe is a sugar cookie recipe. They are all pretty much about the same, at least in my slightly limited experience. I do love trying different ones though, in hopes of finding the perfect one. I like when a little lemon or orange zest is added, that’s super yummy. I like […]

Vintage Recipe- Crisp Waffles

Celeste wanted to make waffles for my birthday breakfast this past saturday. I’ve never made waffles from scratch before, so I figured I’d have a little fun and give it a try. They were delicious, and just as easy as making them from a box! Since it was my birthday we put some sprinkles in […]

Vintage Recipe- One-Step Tamale Pie

March 2, 2011

read post

I found this recipe in the “Meals in Minutes” cookbook ca.1968. The idea of a quick meal in the late sixties was far different from our own. I was looking for a quick dinner one night, and as is often the case with me, didn’t read all the way through to realize the 45 minute […]
