Another new project: Resurrected Recipes


While working on the recent attempt to bake the 1930s Gold-N-Sno cake, Kristen and I were talking about how much fun it would be to make a blog of “resurrected recipes” — food that no one makes any more. The stuff that was commonplace for our grandparents, but is no longer in vogue. After all, even in our lifetimes, we’ve seen food preferences change pretty strongly. (When I was a kid, the bread aisle had multiple shelves of white Wonder bread and just a little bit of wheat bread. Now Wonder is gone, and if any of that squishy-style pure white bread remains at all, it’s only a few loaves at a time.)

So here it is: Resurrected Recipes. Both of us will contribute to the blog as we get a chance. Kristen’s computer is currently in the shop, though, so she might not get to post much for a bit.

One thought on “Another new project: Resurrected Recipes

  1. Dear Ms. Dunlap,
    This comment is actually not about Slumberland, although it is an interesting site. My comment is more a request concering Benjamin Franklin Dickinson.

    I was directed to Slumberland from a genealogical site that contained the name of Benjamin Franklin Dickinson. I came to that site from an ongoing google search.

    I am contacting you regarding any information on “my Dickinson (Dr. Benjamin Franklin Dickinson of Rochester, Sangamon Co., IL)” you might have gathered in your search on “your Benjamin Franklin Dickinson”. I don’t think “my Dickinson” is the same as yours; however, if you have time and are interested, I could email you his information. Perhaps, if you came across something on him in your research for “your Dickinson”, you wouldn’t mind sharing.
