Join me on my delicious journey revisiting American home cooking in the era before convenience foods became popular (1919 to 1955), as I bake and cook from old cookbooks and recipe cards of home cooks purchased at estate sales in Akron, Ohio, and other exotic locations.

What's a pork chop doing on this baking blog?
But baking, that's something else again. When you combine ingredients like flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, eggs, etc., and expose them to heat, something brand new emerges, something that doesn't resemble any of the original ingredients at all. It's kind of like magic!
For me, baking is a way to create (and be creative). I may not be able to sing, dance, draw or act but I can bake. (Is the High School of Performing Arts open to us bakers yet?) And the best part is, anyone can do it -- mix some dry ingredients with some wet ones, pop it in the oven and voila -- a cake, a pie, muffins, etc.
As you might suspect, in my house there's always dessert. Dinner (pork chops or otherwise) is a *bit* less predictable.
