Hello Everyone

Kinda late in introducing myself. I'm Val and I am a food writer. I am a deep fan of history. Just produce a book on 1800 recipes.

Hi, Val. Welcome to DC. Perhaps you might consider sharing a recipe or two that we would find out of the ordinary. Or maybe you could write a book about all the "Foodies" you'll meet on DC. We certainly are a colorful lot. Once you're here for awhile you'll find it's just like family.

Hi JoeV,
Thank you for that warm welcome. I'm actually in AZ, although I did live in MD for over a year. All I can say is Blllurrrr! : )

An unual recipe coming up:

Cold Pudding, 1872

stale cake
3 eggs
1 pint of milk

Fill a tin mold with stale cake broken up fine, and pour over it a custard made of eggs and milk. Let it stand 1 hours. Add a little flavoring and a little sliced citron, and boil it 1 hours. Then let it grow cold; turn it out carefully, sift fine sugar over it, and serve with sauce.

Ooops! My bad. I should have clarified that by DC I meant DiscussCooking.com.

Interesting recipe. It would never work in my house because cake doesn't last long enough to get stale.

I hear ya, about the cake. Interesting enough, they wasted nothing in those times, if they could help it.

Ahhhh... I think when I first say 'DC' being used, I kept thinking Washington DC. For the longest time I figured most of the forum members were from Washington DC. I have since learned!!! I'm sure you will fit in just fine here!
