Feasting on Pioneer Food

April 4th I feasted with the Nichols Hill Garden Club on fried tomatoes, corn fritters, gingerbread tea cakes, potato soup and lettuce sandwiches from my "1905 Cookbook." Yummy!! All fresh from the garden and cooked green like the pioneers.
The hostesses wore vintage aprons and tables were set with grandma's sterling, hobnail glasses and delicate china plates.
I shared stories from the 1905 Cookbook and exhibited 30 Food for Body & Soul Touring Quilts in the living room of this beautiful old home furnished in antiques, majolica and quilts.

  1. Hi Judy - I saw your post at Quilting Gallery requesting names of soup kitchens and other organizations which could benefit from your fight against hunger.

    A childhood friend of mine helped found the Congressional Hunger Center ( and is now involved with the USDA's Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships to work with the communities themselves to help reach all those suffering from food insecurity. You might find some resources there that will help with your outreach. Great work!
