Weaver of course is a well known Penn Dutch expert. I had the chance to hear him talk at a symposium in Ann Arbor back in 2007. That was great. I used to work at a living history farm where we did some Penn Dutch cooking and we used his books as some of our reference material. I have a favorite Michigan Author, Dr. Chase. Although I don’t think any of his books are in reproduction. He wrote during the mid and late 19th century. He has a wonderful recipe for Rough and Ready cakes, which he got from the ladies of Rough and Ready, PA! It is a delightful cookie type recipe for soft gingerbread. Keeps well too. Just getting started here at shelfari, been trying to figure out a way to organize my books.
I see you have Sauerkraut Yankees. one of my favorite cook books. I'm new to this shelfari thing, but I sure do like it. I'm a food historian and weaver is one of my fav authors. I actually have both editions but can't figure out how to post both!
Just wanted to say hello
Hi! I just wanted to stop by and invite you to check out my new group called The Jane Austen Book Club! It's a great group full of great Shelfarians who love to engage on all things Austen! We would love to have you join us there!
Thanks for admiring my Halloween costume. It seems opinion is split--some love it, others are afraid I'll leave it up past Halloween. It's in keeping with my old avatar and my love for Harper Lee. Your can-kitty is quite sweet, as is the fact that you are a librarian. I adore my library liaison, would get lost in the research electronica without her (yep, I miss card catalogs).
