Hot off the Press—A Hundred Years Ago Returns!

SherylA new version of A Hundred Year Ago that focuses more on the foods and slower-paced lifestyle of the early 1900s will be rolled out later this week. I plan to do posts about twice a week.

Over the past few months, I’ve discovered that even when I’m not blogging, I still enjoy making hundred-year-old recipes that use seasonal, local foods. I also continue to be fascinated by the simpler way of life a hundred years ago.

And, I discovered how much I missed the blogging community. I met so many wonderful people during the four years that I did A Hundred Years Ago.

I finally realized that A Hundred Years Ago could continue without the diary. . . dah. . . I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to figure that out.

Over the next few days, I plan to update the look of A Hundred Years Ago. There probably will be moments when this blog looks very strange as I make the transition to a new template. Keep your fingers crossed that it goes smoothly.

See you soon!

  1. Do you know, Sheryl, I was thinking about you only today and wondering how you were, and here you are, and it sounds as if you have some wonderful plans ahead for “Helena’s” blog too. I’ll look forward to hearing more. 🙂

    1. Wow, it’s amazing that you happened to think about me after all these months when I haven’t been online. It’s good to be back. I think that you’ll enjoy the direction A Hundred Years Ago is heading.

  2. I’m glad you are back. My family is from PA and I have been very interested in family history and everyday life in that time period. I remember one of your posts about your grandmother having to cross the river by boat. It is something we don’t think about now and is an interesting little fact about life back then. I’m looking forward to your posts.

    1. I’m glad to be back, too. I’ve missed doing this blog, and chatting with you and others in the blogging community.

      I also find it amazing that some of the bridges that seem like they have been there forever had not yet been built a hundred years ago. Roads, bridges, and transportation in general sure have changed over the past century.

    1. It’s funny–but when I wasn’t doing the blog I found that I was constantly referring back to it because I wanted to make this or that recipe that I’d previously posted. I think that’s what finally convinced me that I should get the blog going again so that I’d have the incentive to find some more old recipes and give them a try.

  3. Great idea! Have fun with it, Sheryl. I will stay tuned. I’m fascinated by that era, too. I am actually in the process of putting together a post about a food writer who was active in the late 19th c/early 20th. Have yet to try her recipes but they sound intriguing. I’m sure our grandmothers read such columns with great interest.

  4. Now, this is good news! I’ve missed you, and wondered whether you’d gotten bored, or distracted, or had other things to do. Sometimes a break is good, of course, and gives a new perspective on things.

    I’m looking forward to your new offerings. It’s great to have you back.

    1. I’m glad to know you’re still on-board. I so enjoyed posting the diary and re-connecting with wonderful people like your family; and am now looking forward to getting the blog started again.

    1. I enjoyed my blogcation–but it’s wonderful to be back. I missed doing A Hundred Years Ago, and interacting with you and others in the blogging community.

      And, it’s always great to hear how much you like the cobbler recipe. It’s always good to hear when someone enjoys a recipe as much as I do.

  5. Never blogged before. Came across your blog while looking for what women were wearing 100 years ago. My parents were born in 1912 and 1913 and I have always been interested in that era. Have been reading books about the 1st World War and it is fascinating, shocking and heartbreaking. It would be a nice change to look at recipes and fashion etc.

  6. Welcome Back!! I am so happy to have you visit me at tea time and learn more about life 100 years ago. I think often of you and your grandma – amazing how connected we get through words, pictures and the internet.

    1. Thank you! It’s wonderful to be back. It’s amazing how the internet has facilitated the development of virtual communities that transcend space.

  7. I am so happy!!!! I am excited to see you back at One Hundred! You look so pretty too with your new avatar! Looking forward to you but Od timey recipes, it’s so good for the soul!!!!
