Chronically Vintage: Vintage recipes. From very early on in Chronically Vintage's life, sharing recipes - both vintage ones and others that have been a much beloved part of my family's meals for years now - has been an integral element of this blog, and something - as a massive fan of food history and cooking alike - that I've really adored doing.

Chronically Vintage: Vintage recipes

The number of recipes that have appeared over the years continues to grow all the time, and so I thought that it would be awesome if there was one handy-dandy sport where you could easily look back through all of the recipes that have ever appeared on this site. Below, organized alphabetically within various categories, are many diverse, easy-to-make, delicious dishes that have been featured in various posts over the years. Please note that this list is updated shortly after each time a new recipe is added to the site, so be sure to check back often for oodles of yesteryear culinary inspiration.

Ruins of the 20th Century. A Time Traveling Vintage Inspired San Francisco Home. I’ve been a huge fan of Troy Litten ever since discovering his Wanderlust series published by Chronicle Books back in 2002 that capture the visual culture of travel and mundane experiences around the world so I am extra excited to share this sneak peek today.

A Time Traveling Vintage Inspired San Francisco Home

Troy was born and raised in Ohio and had stints in London, Hong Kong, and New York before settling in San Francisco in 1995. He moved into this house in the Diamond Heights neighborhood of San Francisco in 2009. The area was originally developed in the early 1960s featuring about 100 Joseph Eichler built homes of varying designs. Troy’s is one of the single-story constructions on a flat lot on the top of the hill, and not much has changed since it was built in 1962. Troy never really considered how to “decorate” the house, instead surrounding himself with the things he loves and crafty throwbacks to his childhood.

31 Days of Living Well & Spending Zero

To read all the posts in order, start with Day One or visit the Overview Page. I love me a good DiY project! Nothing makes me happier than completely losing myself for an hour or two while I create something new. There is something about getting crafty that is just good for the soul. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret: Not everything I make turns out wonderful. A few months ago I co-hosted a cute-as-a-button baby shower for my goddaughter. The Nester’s motto for the home is “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful,” and I would like to point out that this truth also applies to DiY projects. Today I rounded up a whole bunch of absolutely darling DiY projects from some of my favorite blogs (and my own) that can be made using supplies you very likely have already lying around the house.
