I love vintage dishes and kitchenware. 

On the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site.

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.

I made this pie and it was really really fantastic!! One tip is if you are a little short on corn syrup (since apparently 1 bottle doesn't have enough for 2 pies as I discovered) you can top it off with maple syrup. I used grade A since that is what I have but I have heard the flavor of grade B is good for pies like this, too. I'll save this and definitely make it again!
