Vintage Notions one of my favorite January segments is The Department of Cookery. "Soup-Making Secrets" by Laura MacFarlane. iI 1923, she shared her tips for making the best soup. A delightful story about the place of soup on a cold winter day warms the heart as well and the stomach and soul. I make one soup per week. I usually make enough for two meals and freeze one for later use. Most recently on Kitchen Chronicles, I shared my recipe for one of my favorite chicken soup recipes. Simple, basic, pantry friendly chicken soup. I think that chicken soup has so many wonderful variations I don't think that I will ever get to them all!
Then we come to The Department of Good Looks. As I read this section I hear my Grandmother's advice for hair care, care of my fair and freckled skin, and make-up use. A little list of seven items outlines the thinking of the day. From combing the hair away from the face to give attention to lovely features, to putting your clothes on carefully and making sure the seams in your stockings are straight, such good advice.
While I do not do product endorsement here, I have found a great skin care regime that I will share. Please know I receive no compensation for the endorsement but since I have had such positive results I wanted to pass along what I have discovered.
