I’m Emily, a.k.a. Yinzerella. I am a thirty-something single girl living in Baltimore with my cats, Brian Boitano and Margot.
Since I embarked on the Dinner is Served 1972 project in 2011, I started collecting other vintage cookbooks, recipe cards, and cookware/barware to add to the small collection I inherited from my Gramsy. I have also decorated the first floor of my Hampden rowhome with a retro-theme: most of the furnishings are from the 50s-70s.
I joke that my life is like a low-rent version of Sex and the City, but one in which everyone is fatter, poorer, nowhere near as well-dressed, and with a 1000 times more shootings, hookers, and trash; and that my blog is like Julie & Julia, but with a hell of a lot more Jell-O and a hell of a lot less class.
Both of these things are are true.

Also, everyone needs to note that I am wearing the same apron as Megan in the Season 7 premiere episode of Mad Men.
