Happy Fannie Farmer's birthday!

She was born in 1857. She taught cookery and wrote and edited so many interesting cookbooks, including Chafing Dish Possibilities, A Book of Good Dinners, The Priscilla Cookbook for Every Day, and of course The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book. You can get free e-copies of many through https://archive.org/details/texts?and[]=fannie%20farmer .
