Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen

Here is the last calendar page from the 1953 Woman's Day calendar. The picture by Warren Chappell for this month may be my favorite of all of them. Light spills from the windows of the old New England farmhouse, and the leafless trees are black against the dusky blue sky -- this blue is a color only seen at dusk in winter. What a tranquil December scene. Life was so much simpler, and in many ways happier, back then.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
