Recipes from the Golden Age of Cinema: Jean Harlow's Cottage Meat Pie

I am a tremendous fan of Jean Harlow -- not just her work, but the woman behind the silver screen. Her life was plagued by scandal and, in the end, tragedy.

She truly wanted to make her guests feel welcome, and was known as more of a tomboy than a glamour girl to those who knew her best -- more at home in pants than in sequined dresses.

Which is perhaps why I had to try out one of her recipes, in preparation for the upcoming colder months.

Or, is it possible for someone to really have violet eyes? (It is... kind of... it turns out they were such a unique shade of deep blue they really DID look purple... and they have become so iconic even a perfume is named after them).
