Heather, thanks for this list! As a fellow Downtonite, I appreciate you sharing the link to Downton Abbey Cooks. Fun!

Heather Kuhn Roelker said...

I know! I don't know if I'm talented enough to pull off any of the recipes but I'll try. Right now I'm not looking at that site until I've caught up with my Downton episodes...I would hate to accidentally find spoilers!

Heather Rojo said...

From Heather to Heather: Thanks for mentioning my blog post about my Grandmother's childhood "in service" in an aristocratic household. I see on your list someone else has a "Downton Abbey" themed post, too. I'll have to read it ASAP!

Heather Kuhn Roelker said...

You are very welcome Heather! That other post is actually an entire blog dedicated to the food of Downton Abbey. I can't wait to try some of it!

Heather Kuhn Roelker said...

You are very welcome! Having spent a lot of time in Germany I was fascinated to find your blog and read through the letters.

Heather Kuhn Roelker said...

No problem, Nancy! I'm looking forward to seeing if your tips bring me any luck with some of my trickier lines.
