    This is similar to the recipe for creamed onions served at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. The Tavern version (from a 1970s cookbook of Old Williamsburg recipes) includes extra salt which I omit. The salted peanuts make it salty enough for my tastes, even before the doctor put me on a low-salt diet. However, I always have a salt shaker on the table so people who like it saltier can add it themselves.

    Recipe #91668

    Preparation time does not include cooking and peeling sweet potatoes, since you can also use canned sweet potatoes if you drain the liquid from them. Adapted from the Williamsburg Cookbook.

    Recipe #81950

    This is a traditinal recipe, that apparently the women in former times could not do without on new years day. My father told me, that after the war, the 3 waffle makers in the village were handed around, so that every women could offer these cakes with a nice cup of east frisian tea (prepared with cream and demerara sugar) to their new years wellwishers. They taste a little like ice cream cones and should be prepared ahead so the spices can work their magic.Store in an airtight container. They make a nice xmas give away. You need a flat waffle iron.

    Recipe #108109

    Use Sippits as an alternative to spoons to make cream soups a filling and fun meal. This is our version which works well. For the best taste when using cooking spray, use butter-flavored or garlic-flavored cooking spray. Sippits are best when toasted well so they are crispy but not too dark.

    Salmagundi was the chef's salad of 18th century England. In present day England and in Colonial Williamsburg, the name has been revived. My mother enjoyed serving this as a main course for dinner. We always liked it!

    Christiana Campbell's serves these wonderful little muffins with every meal. At one time, they handed out this recipe on little cards (that's where i got mine). A reviewer reminded me: these are butt ugly. In Williamsburg, perfect little bite-sized muffins are served, all nice and puffy. When I made them, and the reviewer also, they were NOT puffy. They taste really good, but for some peculiar reason, they fall after coming out of the oven. If anyone makes them, and can figure this mystery out, please share. I have no clue why they come out different at home than they do in Williamsburg.

    Recipe #87936

    The Shield's Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg opened in the 1740s and was a familiar gathering spot for burgesses, travelers, and townspeople. This recipe for herb dressing from a flier my mother received at Williamsburg is a favorite in our house! Cook time includes chilling.
