Introduction of Published Works Page

We’re introducing a new page that lists of works that I’ve had published. It’s not a complete list, but includes major works and some that are just favorites. I hope you enjoy taking a look. I’ve copied the text from the original posting here. I’m sure the page will continue to grow and change over the years.

In the Kitchen With Laura Update 2018

Another year and we’ve added at least a couple of our In the Kitchen With Laura posts. What is In the Kitchen with Laura? One of the ways I celebrate Laura is through historic cooking. These posts take you into a historic kitchen. Sometimes it’s something to try hands on, sometimes it’s just learning something about food and cooking. All of them are things you could do, In the Kitchen With Laura. Here’s a longer explanation. Enjoy the directory of all the posts from this popular series.
