falveylibrary While visiting my nieces, one of them showed me a cookbook she found and thought I might like to borrow. The #Belgian #CookBook (1915), edited by Mrs. Brian Luck, who apparently has no first name of her own and is referred to as M. Luck elsewhere in the book, is owned by only 58 libraries in the world, according to WorldCat.

The editor, M. Luck, collected recipes from “Belgian refugees from all parts of the United Kingdom” and intended this “small manual…for the use of the work-a-day and inexperienced mistress and maid.” The preface, as well as the recipes, are filled with amusing expressions and anecdotes.

A newer edition was published by Baker & Taylor in 2006. There is also a digitized copy of the 1915 edition available through Project Gutenberg, which proved handy while cooking one of the recipes displayed on my iPad. - Read more including a #recipe for #gourmand #mushrooms on our #foodblog blog.library.villanova.edu at: #sthash.4B2PH1MH.dpuf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://blog.library.villanova.edu/news/2015/04/26/the-belgian-cook-book/#sthash.4B2PH1MH.dpuf #Villanova #vuwildcats #novanation #belgium #vintagerecipes #book #cookbooks #oldcookbooks #falveylibrary #foodie

keithjonesnbc10 I couldn't be prouder today of my dad & namesake. He came through on a promise he made to me years ago by losing 45 pounds and finishing his FIRST half marathon this morning in Long Branch, NJ! At 54, he beat his personal record... while repping #NovaNation & @NovaMBB from head to toe! @NJMarathon #NJMarathon 5h

novaathletics Another historic day for @villanovaxctf at the @pennrelays!!! Junior Angel Piccirillo ran an anchor leg of 2:04.28 in the 4x800 meter relay and Villanova won its third consecutive Championship of America title at the Penn Relays on Saturday afternoon. Piccirillo was named the Women's Athlete of the Meet for the relay events.
