Old-Fashioned Horehound Candy  This was a staple at my late Grandfather's house and we devoured it as kids.  I can't find it in stores anymore.  So glad I found this recipe.  Horehound, the herb, has medicinal properties: cough suppressant and expectorant, gastric tonic and laxative in large doses.

Horehound candy brings back memories of my youth. I'm not really old enough for this to be the case, but in my small hometown, old-fashion.

Vintage bride from 1916 - if you click on the photo to see the site where I found this image, you'll be surprised by how I changed this from a dark black and white to something cool. In the original image, you can't even see the girl because the photo is too dark.

This is a beautiful wedding portrait of Eleanor Clay Ford, the bride of Henry Ford´s son Edsel taken in the year Eleanor wears a wedding gown with a high waistline. I love the cluster of orange blossoms (a symbol of fertility) on the dress.

Homemade Grand Marnier: I learned how to make this from my friends!  Grand Marnier is an orange flavored liquor. I would consider it a staple for any home bar. It tends to be pretty expensive, so this homemade version is significantly cheaper and tastes better. It’s really simple to make, but it takes a little bit of waiting. So I’d recommend you get yourself some oranges and make it this weekend, then you can enjoy it all summer long! It also makes really great gifts.
