    Undead Pan

    We have a bunch of cast iron skillets and love them. Believe it or not, we got most all of them out of the trash. We live in a senior park, and when people die or move away, relatives and those who clean out the mobile homes often throw those away. So this is invaluable for us. Hugs, Anne

    How Baking Works

    I really enjoyed reading this. When I wrote a pumpkin cookbook years ago, I was amazed at why a lot of recipes are so explicit about such miniscule amounts of an ingredient such as salt, so I tried using the salt as specified, leaving it out altogether, or putting more of it in a recipe to just see what would happen. Of course when I added more, it tasted more salty, but using it as specified or leaving it out altogether did nothing. I got such a kick out of that because I always previously followed each recipe religiously. For the cookbook, I created my own recipes, but I had to have basic ideas of what sorts of things made this or that. Another humorous thing in cookbooks is that old saying, "Season to taste."

Pray tell, how else would you season it? By sight or smell? So if you look hard enough, there is actually a lot of good humor in old cookbooks. I had some very old cookbooks from places like Africa, and those were even more humorous because they were using wood-burning stoves to cook, and so the ingredients and amounts were interesting to say the least. If you ever are feeling depressed, a good remedy is old cookbooks. By the time you get to the middle, you will feel as though you have entered another world. Thank you for this good article. Very enjoyable!!!
