Homemade Cherry Pie

Cherries are not my favorite fruit but this cherry marzipan pie is so yummy! I baked the pie in a large 12-inch (30cm) pie plate that I found while clearing out grandma’s house (more of grandma’s antique treasures on my instagram account). So maybe you’ll have to reduce the amount of dough and cherry filling if you use a regular 9-inch (24cm) pie plate. Continue reading Homemade Cherry Pie

Victorian & Edwardian Travel Accessories

Victorian & Edwardian Travel Accessories
‘It is a delightful experience to sit in a comfortable, two-horse victoria at the door of the Hotel Toblach, while the driver gathers up the reins preparatory to starting either for Cortina or for the charming intermediate halting-places – Schluderbach and Landro. […] Huge domes and spires, really miles away, seemed close at hand; and like the desert air in purity was the breeze which now and then swept downward from them to refresh us as we drove along.’ (The Dolomites, 1901)

In the Victorian era, there were already unchaperoned traveling women, such as Ida Pfeiffer – the travel blogger of the Victorian era! 😉 Continue reading Victorian & Edwardian Travel Accessories
