Five articles I never would have guessed even existed

Pot Roast Is Political: Domestic Ideology in Victorian and World War II Cookbooks By: Parkinson, Kirsten L.; Midwestern Folklore, 2003 Fall; 29 (2): 12-24. (journal article)

Feeding the Imperial Appetite: Imperial Knowledge and Anglo-Indian Domesticity By: Procida, Mary; Journal of Women's History, 2003 Summer; 15 (2): 123-49. (journal article)

'One Quart Milk, Five Eggs I Should Say': Marginalia in Anglo-Canadian Cookbooks By: Golick, Greta; Variants: The Journal of the European Society for Textual Scholarship, 2004; 2-3: 95-113. (journal article)

The Rhetoric of Cookbooks in Eighteenth-Century England By: Norris, Christine Michele; Dissertation Abstracts International, Section A: The Humanities and Social Sciences, 2004 Sept; 65 (3): 917. Purdue U, 2003. (dissertation abstract)

Domesticating Imperialism: Curry and Cookbooks in Victorian England By: Zlotnik, Susan; pp. 72-87 IN: Floyd, Janet (ed. and introd.); Forster, Laurel (ed. and introd.); The Recipe Reader: Narratives-Contexts-Traditions. Aldershot, England: Ashgate; 2003. ix, 246 pp. (book article)

I could try to explain to you why I was even searching for this... but it would never make sense anyway. The article I actually need, How to write a concise yet fascinating blurb about Eliza Smith, the author of the first cookbook ever published in the United States, is not on the list. (By the way, that article would be published in the journal, Obscure Information Compiled Specifically For Jocelyn, on the Off-Chance She Might Someday Need It. I know why I subscribe to it... but why do those five other people?)
