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.
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 prefer mid-century items from 1940-1980. But will take a gander at all food porn.
I have not yet made a catalog of my retro collection, these are my favorite post-1980 cookbooks:
- The Frugal Gourmet on our Immigrant Ancestors
- Yan Kit’s Chinese Classics
- Weight Watchers Take-Out Tonight!
- Skinny Italian by Real Housewife of New Jersey (and crazy person) Teresa Giudice.
