Throwback Thursday – Cooking from the past – January 30 – Chicken Croquettes

You can follow our family on youtube on our many foster-adopt homeschooling adventures

Join us on our journey of creating 1800 and early 1900 recipes in a modern farmhouse kitchen. And learn to cook out of a cookbook from when my Great Great Grandmother was providing for her family. As we create, know that most recipes do not list out all of the ingredients and at the time, there were no temperature gauges on ovens or stoves.
