A few notes

There will be a real post later on today (read: after coffee and bagel) but wanted to fill you all in a few bits of news:

I'm working on setting up a FB sister site 'Handwritten Recipes.'

It will feature the recipes I come across when sorting through books. I have posted these on FB in the past, and I thought it would be nice to have them all in one place. I have a few up already:

http://www.handwrittenrecipes.com (BETA)
Always wanted to say that.

I'm also working on a super-secret project.
I'll let you know when it launches, or drops, or whatever happens with websites.


  1. I just found your site via the Blogs of Note gizmo on my iGoogle page. What a treasure! I can't wait to see what fantastic things you have to share with us - especially those handwritten recipe cards!

  2. interesting! just started reading your posts recently! looking forward to the 'super secret' project....

  4. I love this blog and your recipe blog. It is so interesting what you can find in books,and what it might say about the people who owned the books. You have a very interesting collection and it has inspired me to find something cool and unusual to collect. http://www.moderndiarist.com/

  5. great idea. takes publishing your mom's recipes a few steps further. are you going to test any of them or let your readers do it?

  6. i would love to do a proper recipes blog with big fancy food porn photography and descriptions, but I just don't have the time. If anyone tries one, let me know how it came out.
