This chapter focuses on the woman's column of the Brooklyn Times, called “Readings for the Home” and offering “Gossip and Gleanings for the Family Circle,” opened with its usual feature on October 23, 1886: an “Everyday Bill of Fare” that presented a menu and recipes by famous novelist Marion Harland. Harland had made a name for herself before the Civil War with best-selling popular fiction, but after the war she also branched out into domestic guidebooks and “cookery,” sometimes in conjunction with her daughter, Christine Terhune Herrick. On this particular day, she proposed a breakfast consisting of ham breaded in flour, salted “slightly,” and fried in lard, and a “Luncheon” of “Beef Balls, Corn Cakes, Potato Salad, Bread and Butter, Crackers and Cheese, Lemon Cream Toast, and Wilbur's Cocoatina.”

Keywords:   woman's column, Brooklyn Times, recipes, famous novelist, Marion Harland
