Folks, you may have been wondering what happened to your favorite blogger. Rather than making excuses about being busy with work, a research project, and more, I’ll just say I haven’t been completely idle blogging-wise. The good folks at The Historical Cooking Project gave me a chance to write a guest post. Since it’s summer time, what else would I write about but the Christmas cookie recipe in Amelia Simmons’s 1796 cookbook? Is it a clue to who the elusive author was?
