Cooking With Clara: Depression Era Cooking

If this has escaped the attention of some of you, please take a moment out to check out a series of YouTube video posts from a 91 year old great grandmother named Clara. She actually has her own YouTube Channel.

She has a number of posts showing how to make inexpensive meals that were popular during The Great Depression. Mixed in with the cooking are stories from her childhood. Most of these recipes feature the use of many of the supplies we, as preppers, are setting aside.

Episode One: Pasta With Peas

Episode Two: Egg Drop Soup

Episode Three: Poorman's Meal

Episode Four Pt 1: Peppers And Eggs

Episode Four Pt 2: Peppers And Eggs

Episode Five: Cooked Bread

Episode Six: Depression Breakfast

Episode Seven: Poorman's Feast

Holiday Cooking: Sicilian Fig Cookies Pt 1

Holiday Cooking: Sicilian Fig Cookies Pt 2

If you enjoy her efforts, Clara is selling a DVD. View the sales pitch here or go to www.greatdepressioncooking.com

I made the pasta with peas last week for dinner. It was pretty good. Catman added a little meat to it and had it for leftovers the following day. I will definitely be trying more of Clara's recipes. :D

It made me think that I should ask my 96 year old grandma if she still has her recipe box. I bet she's got some great recipes in there.

Have a great day!
