It's Episode 2 in our bonus series for Fall - vintage recipes, foodways, social and cultural history culled from early- to mid-20th century newspapers. We're hitting all the holidays that fall in October, November, and December, including Kwanzaa - but I may need your help with that. The recipes I've found in newspapers so far are so corporatized it's ill. Today continues the Halloween, or Samhain, theme. All of these recipes come from the October 23, 1904 issue of The Buffalo Sunday Morning News, and they include candies, cookies, and a booze-soaked flaming dragon that could induce hurt feelings, dashed hopes, and first-degree burns. This may not be strictly genealogy, but I hope that by the end of this series you'll appreciate the importance of a woman's changing role in society and the family over a century, among many other things. By extension, I hope this will help you to see your ancestors' lives more clearly.
