hello from Massachusetts

hello everybody!

My name is manuela and I live in Massachusetts. Despite having registered a long time ago never found the time to really participate. Hopefully now I will. I enjoy baking bread, cookies and cakes using historical recipes--or receipts :) . I will be happy to share the recipes and photos of the ones I have tried so far. There are some really delectable gems in old cookbooks!

I'm originally from Connecticut, now living in Oregon. Look forward to your posts of historical recipes.

Manuela, Great to hear you are going to be making some older recipes. I think you will find the people here are very interested in historical bakery. We have had some very interesting threads of reproducing "Grandmas" breads. I look forward to hearing from you.

By the way, I lived in Salem and Marblehead for a time. Love the East coast! Wisconsin is my home now.

I have just moved to a new house and as soon as my kitchen is ready I'll post a recipe--soon :)
