I get white dress envy when I look at these pictures from my mother's early teaching career between 1923 and 1934. #52Ancestors Back to School
My mother, Harriette Anderson (Kaser) had a career as a teacher, although she thought she would be a doctor. She kept lots of photos from her teaching.

Maps can make the narrative so much clearer, I think.  I used two in this #52 ancestors post about my husband's great-great grandfather.
My husband, Ken Badertscher's 2nd great-grandfather, Samuel Frederich Schneiter. I learned the little I know about Samuel by tracing the female line.

They help in so many ways. I love tracing their migration routes from the East coast as they moved toward Ohio--and sometimes further.

After making some buckwheat pancakes, I had about one cup of buttermilk left over.  In the grandmotherly spirit of waste not, want not, I wondered if there was not a good recipe buttermilk cookies.  Although I could make my Grandmother’s Sugar Cookies…
Looking for a use for a leftover cup of buttermilk, I found a traditional Amish recipe for buttermilk cookies.

You know how Garrison Keillor talks about the Norwegian Bachelor Farmers?  Well, I have  a couple of German bachelor farmers in my family tree. Until older one died and younger one finally married.

Since he didn't marry until he was 50, I'd say it took more than ten years!

Sometimes we forget how simple the best things can be.
When I was growing up in Ohio, mint tea was one of our summer survival tricks. Here's how to make it.

Isn't it interesting that most of my husband's family and mine all settled in a relative small region of Ohio, even though they arrived from different countries?

It is a simple recipe, but a family favorite. Eat it hot or cold for any meal.

In all my recipe book reading, I had not run into this Swis recipe which is just made for people who might be climbing mountains all day--lots 'o carbs! Alpflemagroni--Swiss answer to mac and cheese.
Writing about Ken's dairy farmer ancestors got me thinking about Swiss recipes with Swiss cheese. Here's an unusual main dish.

Everybody loves these Amish Buttermilk Cookies, with or without frosting, although they are traditionally frosted. See the recipe at Ancestors in Aprons, courtesy of The Barn Inn, Holmes County, Ohio.

Most widows remarried fairly quickly, or turned over farming chores to their oldest sons or their brothers. Not Mary Kaser.  She told the census taker she was the head of household, and her occupation was farmer.

In #52 Ancestors last week, I continued looking at my father's family. It is relatively easy to find out what men did for a living. Not quite so obvious what they did for recreation. Several  of my father's uncles and cousins played instruments in a community band. David Kaser was one of those--a hard worker at several different jobs, I like to think he got some relaxation blowing on his Tuba.

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.
