Hi, I’m Sheryl Lazarus. Grab a cup of tea, and pull up a chair. I love to tell the story of A Hundred Years Ago.
On this blog, I post old recipes from a hundred years ago. The posted recipes include my updates to make them user friendly for modern cooks. I enjoy the challenge of interpreting the sparse directions in old recipes. I also do posts on related topics, such as food and healthy living in the early 1900s.
A Hundred Years Ago evolved over the years. From 2011 to 2014, it was where I posted my grandmother’s diary entries a hundred years to the day after she wrote them (see Archives—Grandma’s Diary for details). I also shared lots of contextual information and old recipes.
In the process my life changed. I started eating healthier foods made with local, seasonal ingredients. I also began to value a slower-paced life.
The last diary entry was posted in December, 2014—but A Hundred Years Ago continues.
