We have a fridge with an ice maker and chose NOT to have it hooked up.  We make ice cubes the "old fashioned way" in those "dang" plastic containers, made so that the ice "pops out" "easily". Would much prefer the old metal tray.

I've never had a fridge with ice maker yet!

Comment by C. Dianne Zweig Editor's Desk on December 27, 2015 at 10:51am

Biker Bonnie and Betty,

at least with the old ice trays you could rely on getting ice. The newer ice makers inside the refrigerators are always getting jammed up and quit just when you have a gathering and need ice. Perhaps we need to return to  using the retro ones?

1. Immigration
Waves of immigrants introduced new foods and flavors. Most immigrants settled in urban areas, many opened restaurants and imported foods. The first Italian-style pizzeria opened in New York City 1905. http://www.foodtimeline.org/fooddecades.html#1900snew

3. Home Economics & Nutrition Science
The Home Economics movement of the late 19th century continued full-force in the 20th. College women studied the science of cookery and applied their knowledge to improving the nutrition and health of their families. Some of these women became social workers who advocated for the poor. They established soup kitchens and classes for new immigrants and low-income homemakers. Many visited tenement homes and worked one-on-one with families. Social workers/nutrition experts taught their students practical skills regarding cooking safety, sanitation, nutrition, and marketing. About Home Economics.

Comment by Betty Proper on December 27, 2015 at 8:34am

I loved those ice cube trays - much easier to use than any that have "improved" on the idea since. :-)
