Story
Tagline
When I'm not traveling or reading, I'm writing about travel and books.
Introduction
My main occupation are my two websites. At  A Traveler's Library  I talk about books and movies and my travels. At Ancestors in Aprons, I talk about food that triggers memories of family and ancestors. I also write articles in print and on the web. With Charnell Havens, I wrote the book Quincy Tahoma: The Life and Legacy of a Navajo Artist,published in 2011. Charnell and I have a blog for Tahoma. I have contributed to Wandering Educators as well as to Absurd Reviews and Indy Travel Podcast. I currently write a monthly column called Classics Connoisseur about classic movies and stars at  Reel Life With Jane.
Bragging rights
Graduated Ohio State University with high honors, made it through a Master's program at Arizona State University.

Spice Mix for German ginger cookies, and a bit about star anise.

This will made me dig futher into the life of a 3rd great aunt of my husband to find out why she wrote a will (not common for women in her time and place) and why she chose the recipients that she did.  It unraveled a sad story--several in fact.
Ken's 3rd great-aunt, Eve Manbeck Gutshall did an unusual thing. She left a will. 52 Ancestors, #45.

Even though I never found out what Hutty-Cutty means, these are a great variety of ginger cookies--just spicy enough, soft without being too cakey. A vintage recipe from a 1920's cookbook.
Ginger Cookies are the grandmother of all cookies--here's an adaptable ginger cookie with a funny name.

I was so happy to find this Limback family picture that shows my husband's great-grandparents Daniel Bair and Caroline Limback Bair in the top right corner. There are many other Bair pictures on Ancestry that are kept private. I'm hoping that the owner will allow me to borrow them, because we know so little about my husband's Bair family.
Ken's great-grandmother, Caroline Limback gave clues that he is not all Swiss. She and husband Adam Daniel Bair are buried at a 100-year-old church.

COOKIES!  Can't decide between oatmeal cookies, chocolate chip cookies or banana cookies? Here's the mash-up of all three.

My #52Ancestors post this week takes us into Christina Manbeck's Kitchen about the time of the Declaration of Independence.  Her husband's very detailed will shows us what she eats and cooks with.

The things you learn from reading a will and inventory! I time traveled back to the 18th century while reading the will of my husband's 4x great-grandfather, a German immigrant in Pennsylvania. Had to untangle a lot of unfamiliar terms about flax.
Reading the will of Rudolph Manbeck is like time travel to the 18th century, including a vocabulary lesson about raising flax and making cloth.

Do you follow your ancestors on maps? I love to follow American pioneers as they move across the country. Here's a family that moved from coast to coast in one generation. http://ancestorsinaprons.com/2015/11/52-ancestors-jacob-manbeck-eva-manbeck-out-of-pa/
The Jacob Manbeck Family started in Pennsylvania, but scattered across the country.

I tried mapping my New England ancestors but there are so many and they moved so much, it was a mess. Even the pilgrims we think of as Plymouth, started moving slowly wesrward within a year of landing.

Learned this recipe from Stephanie Stiavetti at The Culinary Life.com It is delicious, gorgeous and EASY.
This dish is not only beautiful, it is EASY and adaptable. Pumpkin and macaroni with cheese looks and tastes great.

Easy and delicious recipe from the Jura region of Switzerland. Chicken breasts, dipped in egg, flour with nutmeg, a mix of bread crumbs and swiss cheese grated fine. Saute in butter.
From a new/old cookbook, I find a recipe for Swiss Chicken--sauteed chicken breasts with swiss cheese. Yum.

Bistro Mazarin was "our" cafe when we rented an apartment just down the street. We enjoyed several light meals there, and were impressed that we could hang out as long as we wanted, even if we only had hot chocolate or pommes frites. The pommes frites, by the way, were the best I have had anywhere in the world! I wrote about it at my blog, A Traveler's Library.
