My name is Emily, a.k.a. Yinzerella. I am from Pittsburgh and currently live in Baltimore with my cat, Brian.
I love to eat and I love to cook. I am not a baker and I also cannot make gravy. But I’m working on the baking and the gravy. [ed note: can now make gravy as well as all kinds of cream-based sauces and custards. It only took me 3 years].
Since I embarked on the Dinner is Served 1972 project, I began collecting other vintage cookbooks, recipe cards, and various food-related ephemera to add to the small collection I inherited from my Gramsy. I am especially fond of church/community cookbooks and recipe card sets with horrible food photography.
I am in the process of cataloging all of my cookbooks. They’ll be up…someday.
