Who is this girl anyway?

I’m work in the Marketing Department of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. A recovering journalist and aspiring speechwriter by day, by night I’m a closet history freak.  I love food! I love food from the past! And I feel happiest in the kitchen.  That’s how this blog was born.  When I’m not cooking historical recipes, I’m taking care of my two daughters, my husband, and our crazy coon dog.  Thanks for reading my blog and if you try any of the recipes I post-or if you have a recipe you’d like me to try-post a comment! I’d love to hear from you!

    I love your website
    I’m off today to find the Penzey spices…..I found a store that has them a few miles from my home. Have never heard of them, you seem to use them quite often.

    Check your Egg Biscuit recipe…..you forgot to put in the baking powder (word).

    The Brunswich Stew recipe confused me about the leg quarter …….I figured out that a breast is attached to the leg and not just legs….. duh me

    Love love love your writing and stepping back in time!! Looking forward to more of your finds.

    Check out The Henry Ford Village in Dearborn. Mi
    at Christmas time they serve a holiday coarse dinner, you would enjoy seeing their turn of the century
    The menu at The Holly Inn in Holly, Mi also has a Christmas coarse dinner of 1800’s England.

    • Thank you for your kinds words, Mary! I fixed my egg biscuit recipe-good catch. I LOVE Greenfield Village and Henry Ford Museum-I live in Cincinnati, so we only get there every 5-10 years but it is my favorite place and my dream job would be working in the Firestone Farm kitchen! That’s really how this blog got started. Our family visited and ate at the Tavern and I thought, “I wonder if I could cook like this at home.” Thanks for your readership-best New Year’s present ever!

    I. Love. Your. Blog. The whole idea is brilliant – I once found myself making recipes vaguely mentioned in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, but I never thought to actually do something like this…keep it up, please!

  4. Thanks for following my blog at historicinterpreter.wordpress.com. I haven’t posted much on this blog recently but I hope to get back to it soon. Mostly I have been working on one of my other blogs that you might enjoy:


    It is all about English and Scottish Country Dance, often from an historical perspective.

    Hi there! I’m looking for food bloggers for a new television series and would like to speak with you over the phone. Is there a phone number where I could reach you?
    Thank you,

    I just discovered your website, and I am delighted! I am a Civil War living history reenactor, and I like to try period recipes. (1863) I look forward to exploring your site and trying some new recipes! Thank you
