"The wife is like the fire, or to put things in their proper proportion, the fire is like the wife.
Like the fire, the woman is expected to cook: not to excel in cooking, but to cook,

.... be a cook, but not a competitive cook,

a school mistress, but not a competitive schoolmistress; a house-decorator but not a competitive house-decorator, etc...
She should have not one trade but twenty hobbies; she... may develop all her second bests.

Women were not kept at home in order to keep them narrow;
on the contrary, they were kept at home in order to keep them broad.

Tips and Tricks: Oil and Honey

When making any recipe which includes oil and honey (like so many bread recipes do!) try using the same measuring tool for both.  Measure out the oil in it first and it is then greased so that the honey pours out easily without leaving much behind!

I do this all the time when making breads and it saves scraping all that sticky honey out of the cup.

You can also do this with oil and molasses. So handy!
