Nana & Pappy’s house, pt. 2

They had all these great old products lying around, some still in use!

Diets Like Like. Crazy!

Ann Page Pure Ground Pepper. I swear I spied this in an episode of ‘Mad Men’, yup, that’s how old it is. Needless to say, my grandparents aren’t big on flavoring their food…they think garlic is evil!

Linit Liquid Starch.

Jubilee Kitchen Wax.


Wheat Bread & House

Wheat bread from the excellent SmittenKitchen. House shot from another trip to Hudson, NY that included a visit to Rosendale and the International Pickle Festival, which ended up being slightly disappointing. It was more of a junk fair than a pickle festival. Although it’s still a toss-up as to whether the ShamWow table was lame or if it rocked. And I won’t even begin to get into the entertainment. Yikes.

Cheese, Apple & Onion Tart

I do make things other than tarts…they seem to be the only ones who make it here!

Fig & Honey Tart



We had a few different peppers, hot and sweet. Loads of tomatoes, the yellow ones were like candy. And a bunch of other veggies I didn’t shoot.
