Happy Birthday, Mrs. Harding! ðŸ‡ºðŸ‡¸

Today in American history…Florence Harding was born on August 15, 1860 in Marion, Ohio. She was the very first First Lady to vote in a Presidential election on Nov 2, 1920 (women had just received the right to vote due to the 19th Amendment of the US Constitution which was ratified on August 18, 1920. She was a great supporter of women’s rights and veterans causes. She also loved animals and was an active animal rights activist. Mrs. Harding also wore the latest bright colored fashions of the day as worn by the ‘flappers’ which brought her much criticism.


National Rice Pudding Day

Today is National Rice Pudding Day! In honor of this special day here is a fantastic recipe in Mary Randolph’s famous cookbook (ps. today is also her birthday – born today in 1762).

Who does not love Rice Pudding! It’s such a yummy, succulent comfort food and really warms the heart (and taste buds). As a child, this was one of my favorite desserts – my grandmother in Vermont used to even add a dash of maple syrup (if you are from New England you tend to add maple syrup to a lot of things 😂)
