July 3, 2007

So now the “big thing” in the cooking world this week is making your own butter, which reminded me of a truly ridiculous PowerPoint that I made for a history class that I took in college. My grandmother used to work at a living history museum called “The Norlands” where she portrayed a 19th century […]
