The Skillful Housewife’s Book: or Complete Guide to Domestic Cookery, Taste, Comfort and Economy, 1853

This frontispiece from Mrs. Lydia Abell's ladies guide, The Skillful Housewife's Book, depicted many duties of the nineteenth century homemaker. This and many other images of domestic life are featured in the Libraries' digital collection, The Making of A Homemaker.

Today is National Pie Day. Maybe celebrate by making your own delicious pie, whether sweet or savory—or by indulging in the classic cinematic treat—a pie fight?

Enjoy!—Elizabeth Periale
