Dorothy Mae Seablom Hall (1900-1988) was our grandmother and an amazing cook.
Here is Dorothy (Dottie) in her Manhasset (Long Island) New York kitchen in about 1955. Note the faiance-like designs on the cabinets- she painted them!
Dorothy was an AMAZING cook!!
One of us three sisters (Annie) recently found a treasure trove of Dorothy’s recipes:
There are hundreds, maybe thousands of recipes in these boxes and folders. These would have been written down mostly in the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s- thus, Mid-Century Cooking! Another sister, Karen, is slowly but surely transcribing these all. As we try cooking these recipes, we’ll document here the recipes, with our success and no-so-successful tries.
