Hello world!

This is our first blog post.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be highlighting some of our favorite items, recipes, and problem-solving machines. Classics and novelties are all fair game, but today we’re combining them a little with Hometown Appetites—a biography about a Kansas-born farmgirl turned spitfire journalist who, from the 1920’s to ‘60’s chronicled America’s regional food, recipes, and character in her beloved newspaper columns.

“At the height of her career, Clementine Paddleford was as popular as Julia Child and as respected as James Beard. Today, she’s the most important food writer you’ve never heard of.”

The blurb from the book jacket pretty much sums it up. It’s Essential reading for foodies, history buffs, and anyone interested in American cooking. A cult classic for just $9.99
