In honor of Valentine’s Day, we couldn’t resist re-posting this special piece of advice from UMD alumna Minnie Hill, Class of 1925–a Recipe for Kisses:
To one piece of dark piazza, add a little moonlight. Take for granted two people. Press in two strong ones a small hand. Sift lightly two ounces of attraction, one of Romance. Add a large measure of Folly. Stir in a floating ruffle and one or two whispers. Dissolve half a small quantity of hesitation, one ounce of resistance, two of yielding. Place the kisses on a flushed cheek or lips. Flavor with a slight scream and set aside to cool. This will succeed in any climate if directions are carefully followed.
