The Navigation Menu at left (below on mobile) lists a variety of vintage recipe pages, many of which feature background notes of a nostalgic or historical nature that you'll find helpful when researching class assignments.

Be sure to read the Renaissance Recipes pages for a look at early cooking practices and authentic recipes from the collection of Queen Henrietta Maria of England (1609-1669).

The Renaissance Glossary features a list of historical cooking terms, and the History of Sugar reveals that the use of sugar in cooking was much earlier and more common in England than most people realize.

You'll find many Cooking Tips and Household Hints from bygone days that can add interest and flavor to your reports.

In addition, you can instantly download a FREE PDF recipe book of old fashioned handwritten recipes simply by subscribing to my newsletter.

You'll find additional resources listed at the bottom of this page.

How to Cite a Webpage

Some students have written and asked how to properly cite the recipe pages and articles in a bibliography. So, to make it easier for aspiring authors, here's how you would cite an article on this website using the popular MLA style guide:

Author's Last Name, First Name. "Page Title." Website Title. Publisher, Publication Date. Medium. Date Accessed.

  • The "Author's Name" is the creator or author of the webpage, written last name first.

  • The "Page Title" is usually found at the top of the webpage, and it should be placed within quotation marks, with a period placed before the last quotation mark.

  • The "Website Title" is the domain name, which is italicized, followed by a period.

  • The "Publisher" is found listed in the copyright notice in the page's footer.

  • The "Publication Date" is often not available, so substitute "n.d." instead.

  • The "Medium" is the Web.

  • The "Date Accessed" is the date which YOU accessed the website, and it's written using the international format of "day month year" using a three-letter abbreviation for the month, followed by a closing period.


For example, here's how you would cite this page on today's date:

Bell, Don. "Student History Project." Homemade-Dessert-Recipes.com. Don Bell, n.d. Web.

I hope you find the historical recipe information on this website helpful and wish you all the best with your student history project.
