Outdoor Wood Cookery with Cast Iron and the Copper Tin Kitchen

             During the summer, when we cook out doors,
                                        we like to use historical cookware
                                                    or  reproduction pieces when possible...

..and Beth's Hubby Markus
 is learning to Blacksmith, and made 
a great tripod 
 that works two ways.

Both arrangements proved to be quite efficient 

and he also made this fire starter.

 Now the pictures will tell their own story!






Food always tastes better with FAMILY

   The Mousiekin Family enjoy Hearth cooking too!

When all is cleaned and shined,,,,

the pieces serve lovely  for display


Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

  1. What a wonderful post! Wish I could have been there to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
    Happy Independence Day and bright blessings!


  2. Thank you Serena,
    and many Blessings!

  3. The scents must have been heavenly :) how fun indeed! m.

  4. Fantastic post, Lynnie! Loved it, and everything looks so yum!
    We are in the process of building our own cob bake oven in our back garden, using only materials from our property or free, and digging all our own clay. We have had a gallery of photos on our website the last month, and are adding more. You might like to see the progress! (Site listed below). Ours is similar to those at Plimoth Plantation, and we are building it using the same 'old ways' they did hundreds of years ago.
    (We sure are looking forward to making some homemade pizza and breads, etc., in it!)

    I hope you are having a wonderful summer!


  5. Oh my....I feel like I was at Mumford-your house is gorgeous, and I love all the cooking things and the food! (We live about 80 miles from Mumford-been there 5 times I think)It's always nice to visit your blog! Glad the Mousiekins are having a party too!

  6. Dear Linnie,

    What a fun post! I wish we had an outdoor place to cook, since we are without a stove or oven until the landlord's father finishes fixing them. At least we have a crockpot, a griddle, and a toaster to work with! :)

    Blessings to all,


  7. Hi, I've enjoyed your post very much, such wonderful things to use and when you don't use them, so very decorative.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  8. I don't know how I missed this one Linnie. The meal was as much fun to create as it was to eat, I daresay. That outdoor stone fireplace, wow! I think your room is just gorgeous and worthy of a magazine layout.. all that copper and the Windsors and fireplace mantle, just perfect and cozy and historic.

  9. Dear Linnie,

    Cooking outside is so much fun! Doesn't food taste wonderful outside! Everything looks so good! Great post!

    Your friends,
    Diane and daughter Sarah, and the dolls and Tillie Tinkham the seamstress mouse at Corgyncombe

  10. Food always tastes better when cooked outdoors, and in a cast iron pot - even better! I especially love that you show in your "story pictures" how you baked cornbread. What a lovely feast, thank you for sharing! I followed you here from my blog today, having just discovered you joined a while back and so I've joined your blog now, too. I can see its very warm and friendly here - I think I'll pull up a chair and stay awhile! Cindy from

  11. HI LINNIE!

    I am tickled to see that the Mouskin family is in on the historical fun too! Your copper collection is a fabulous Americana tribute while my copper collection is from France. And I agree that food + family = memories that last a lifetime. I can't smell or taste oregano without traveling back for a few moments to my childhood when my uncle made the best family cookouts ever.

    I just love how you celebrate antiques by using them! AND...I am very pleased that you are "packing" and getting our passports ready for Friday's kickoff to a week in Europe!

    Many hugs dear Linnie, Anita
