The Formal Dinner or Luncheon served by the houshold staff will be found thoroughly discussed on pages 64 to 82. (From the American Woman’s cookbook, 1947).

Yup, those were the days. 18 pages in all with half a page dedicated to five different kinds of tumblers. Further including how to measure for monogramming, how to spread the table cloth, and noting that hot food should be served hot on heated dishes. I knew that!

Sharing my best loved honey based recipies, along with short stories collected during life in Northern California and Stockholm, Sweden. Well, stories from other joints as well, and not only my experiences. Some will appear in English and some in Swedish. Deal with it.
