    Use whatever means necessary (keep it legal, please) to uncover a recipe that you want me to attempt.

    Respond to this post with the recipe (typed out or you could send me a link).  Be sure to explain uncommon ingredients so I know what to look for.

  • Difussion, National Identity, and Culture

    Posted by Kelly Robles on 4/28/2020 8:00:00 AM

    This is the standard: explain how the contributions of people of various racial, ethnic, gender, and religious groups shape American culture.


    In a few sentences, explain to me how particular contributions of your racial, ethnic, gender, and religious groups have shaped American culture.  Give it a little thought...

    Here's mine:

    Mine is a family of story-tellers. My English ancestors brought a love a music, poetry, romance, and rum to America...they felt the call of the land and worked it in many different ways.  They knew plenty and they knew hunger.  They were sharecroppers and pirates, preachers and statesmen, artists and poets.  My Polish and Ukranian ancestors brought some delicious food (perogies) and some questionable food (creamed pickled herring and beets...um, no...), and the determination (and desperation) of immigrants...hand painted Easter eggs, exquisite cross-stich designs...quiet orthodox Catholicism...both sides of my family had a resolved persistence to make a way for themselves and their children.


    Now tell me yours.
