I think I’ll stick to sewing. Links to recipes below!

Costumes shown in this video were made and worn by me! I did the cooking and filming too, but I’m not so proud of that part haha

✩✩✩

I have the recipes used compiled in this post: https://angelacostumery.com/2018/04/01/making-a-sunday-dinner-from-c-1913-recipes/

Everything I made was from the book “Fifty-two Sunday Dinners” by Elizabeth O.hiller.

Ebook version: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/31534/31534-h/31534-h.htm

I LOVE this book because the recipes are organized into menus, so you get an idea of what pairs well together (or at least what they thought paired well together at the time). I made my own menu for the sake of this video; it included these recipes:

Nova Scotia Canapés

Cabbage Relish

Carlsbad Potatoes

Cauliflower à la Béchamel

Béchamel Sauce

Pan Broiled Fillets of Beef

Sultana Sauce

Café Noir

Lemon Pie

Meringue

Boiled Coffee

Café Noir

FOOD UPDATE:

It is being eaten!!

My dad (not a raisin fan) even liked the sultana sauce and marinated steaks in it the next day haha!

I added sriracha barbecue sauce to the potatoes and steak when eating leftovers which made them way better.

Cauliflower was a hit.

I still really like the relish. It went a bit soggy in the fridge, but I’ve been putting it on lettuce to make salads more interesting and on sandwiches.

The meringue turned to a hardened lump in the fridge 🙁 I may scrape the lemon filling onto ice cream…

✩Other✩

The gluten free flour used is Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour BUT Cup 4 Cup Gluten Free Flour Blend is better for baking; it isn’t bean based and doesn’t have an aftertaste in pastry. It’s just more expensive and harder to find.

I made the costumes jewelry was from the Downton Abbey collection

The dishes are in the “aspen” design

Youtube likes to mark my videos as ‘not suitable for all advertisers’ because its algorithm is broken. Ad revenue doesn’t cover material costs for most projects featured in videos; much less a wage for the time spent filming and editing.

I’ve been sewing for five years and focused on period costumes and original designs for the last three. I make costumes for fun and to expand my skill set so I can hopefully get a job in the industry someday.
