New website AND amazing chocolate milk!

1. OH EM GEE.  I just made the best chocolate milk of all time.  Use one part cold evaporated milk (I used Pet Milk) and one part cold water.  Mix up.  Add chocolate syrup.  Stir.  Drink.  FLAIL BECAUSE IT TASTES LIKE MELTED CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM!!!!  It’s fantastic!  Evaporated milk is double-rich and the flavor is yummy!

2.  My new website is live.  It’s called The Homefront Kitchen.  Check it out HERE to see what it’s all about. The first World War II-era recipe (which I cooked last weekend) will be posted soon!

1940s stuff

New project!!!

So I’m developing a website and I’m super-excited about it!  It’s going to be dedicated to the WWII homefront and all that it entailed.  The site will heavily feature recreation of the recipes from that period.  I have tons of recipes from the period, thanks to cookbooks and radio shows and other items in my collection.  My plan is to feature one each week, complete with showing the ingredients, preparation, and the finished product right from my own kitchen. (My husband is already screwing up his face in disgust at some of the recipes I plan on making (which he has to eat or he’ll go hungry!))  It’s a great way to explore the flavors of the period, as well as how recipes were modified due to rationing.  I wanted a specific web address and had to buy it at a GoDaddy auction, but once it’s released to me next week, I’ll probably be ready to go live with the first little bit of it.  Anyway, I’m really stoked and I’ll post the link, as well as more information, once it’s ready to go!
