Everything old...

...is new again!

My name is Victoria Hamilton, and I have a confession to make, well, actually two confessions. I kill people for a living, and I adore hunting for vintage cookware, especially vintage Pyrex, melamine, old utensils that I have to figure out the use of, and anything else cooking related. Old cookbooks! Vintage linens. I could go on and on, and probably will in the following months.

Oh, the killing part? That's only on paper, of course! I write a series of mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime called the Vintage Kitchen Mysteries! I'm terribly excited about it, thrilled to share my love of all things vintage and cozy murder mysteries.

If you have old recipes to share, photos of vintage cookware, or anything else of interest, drop me a line!

See you all soon!


  1. Hi Victoria. Sounds like a fun series. Somewhere I have a file box with old, old recipes. Those are usually the ones that you can't easily make anymore because things like can sizes have changed or your grandmother wrote to add a handful of something.

  2. Hi Helen,

    Love old family recipes! Once I get going more, I plan to feature some here, so keep me in mind! Each book in the Vintage Kitch Mysteries series will feature one recipe, the old form, and a modernized version!

    Thanks for commenting! I'll be blogging much more as I get going; I'm still in the rudimentary phases of Vintage Kitchen Mysteries yet!

  3. Cookware? Killing? I've never read a cozy before, but your series has me intrigued!

  4. Hah... cookware and killing... they go together for me. ;-)
