When I want to feel connected with my nan, I get out the special recipe book she made me when I first moved out of home and choose something to make. There are dinners and cakes, desserts and slices and lots of things in between. I’ll talk a lot about Nan’s book when I’m writing about food, and I’ll try to share some of her recipes, but I feel a bit precious about them ending up on the internet because they are so special to me.
You may have heard me interviewed on the fabulous This Retro Life podcast last week, and heard some of my comments about the pinup pageant world. I have a lot of friends who are just starting out and getting involved in pageants, so I wanted elaborate on my thoughts just a bit.
