Have you tried making steamed Boston Brown Bread? It really isn't hard, except for the finding-the-right-container part. Check out my solution. 
Boston Brown Bread traditionally is round, but this traditional recipe makes a delicious loaf, too. Fat free and eggless recipe is easy to make.

I haven’t made my mother’s peanut butter cookies for a long time because my grandson is allergic to peanuts.  It makes me so sad that so many kids in the younger generations can never enjoy peanut butter cookies and milk–not to mention that staple of…
Peanut butter cookies have been a favorite after school treat since the 1940's, and the traditional recipe with fork crisscross marks is still the best.

I had to go back to Colonial times to find a cake recipe that my husband actually likes. He even loved the orange-flavored frosting, although he usually scrapes off frosting.
I recommend the book The Midwife's Revolt, by Jodi Daynard and the Colonial orange cake recipe from the book.Learn about the life of colonial ancestors.

Can I Have a Do-Over? Feel free to use my work, but double check it!

As they uncover ancient sites, archaeologists never try to “finish the job”.  They leave a portion of the site under the earth.  Aren’t they curious? Don’t they want to be able to say, now we have uncovered all of the site of Delphi, or this pyramid…
Sometimes geneaologists need a do-over, because the job is never done.A warning for those who might use my work without double checking.

Better Buckwheat pancakes are gluten free and egg-free.

When I first posted a recipe for Buckwheat pancakes, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the different ways that people make them.  Not even counting the possible add-ins like apples, bananas, nuts, berries and even chocolate chips. You may want to read (or…
An old-fashioned recipe for buckwheat pancakes turns out to be better than the recipe I published previously. Gluten free and egg-free.

Why is it that we automatically pair certain foods?  Turkey and cranberry sauce, steak and potatoes, hot dogs and beans, hamburgers and french fries, baked beans and Boston brown bread. My mother always cooked certain foods together. For instance,…

The great uprising of the people at once began to shape the course of events that were to give to the county a campaign unequaled for monster meetings, doggerel verses and carnival pomp. That sentence from The History of Guernsey County hints at the…
The Harrison campaign in 1840 pioneered political methods and my ancestor William Cochran was in the midst of the excitement.

There are many ways to make Buckwheat pancakes, but my favorite is this recipe that is truly gluten free (some recipes and mixes use wheat flour) and uses no egg. Yet it is fluffy and delicious.

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.
