Claire and Jamie may have missed 20 wedding anniversaries together, but I bet if they lived near an establishment similar to Ruth’s Chris Steak House, they would definitely celebrate there. In today’s blog, I celebrate 22 years of marriage with my husband, sharing our traditional anniversary outing. Just like Jamie and Claire, my hubby and I are soul mates!
In Outlander, Claire traveled through time, and Murtagh escorted her to the cabin where she first saw Jamie. In my personal story, my mother took me across the street to meet the family that had just traveled across the country. For Jamie, it was love at first sight…for me as well.

Historically in America during the 17th and 18th centuries many types of crops were introduced by the Native Americans, such as maize, sweet potatoes, squashes, tomatoes, beans, grapes, berries, nuts, cotton, tobacco and watermelons. Perhaps the Mohawk Head of the Women’s Council, Tewaktenyonh, in Drums of Autumn shared some of those seeds with Claire.

I was craving some homemade biscuits and where better to find a recipe than Outlander Kitchen!

Once I got a hold of a copy of the Outlander Kitchen Cookbook (a gift from Daddy; so thankful he “enables my addiction.” Now I can keep my signed copy in a safe place and use my unsigned copy as I cook. I can write notes in it and it won’t matter when food splatters upon the pages!) I just had to try out a recipe right away.
