Depression Cooking

I recently found the neatest series of YouTube videos. They are called Depression Cooking with Clara, and it's a woman in her 90s sharing recipes that her family ate during the Depression. She is so cute! And her recipes are just my style - they're simple, no frills, just good and inexpensive. I'm excited to try her Pasta with Peas, Egg Drop Soup, Cooked Bread, and Poorman's Meal. Click here to see the Depression Cooking videos.

I love this lady, thanks for sharing! She reminds me of my husband's grandma (who's almost 94 and as feisty as ever). She has lived nearly her whole life in the same house, and has seen most of the 20th century pass by with all of its change.

I thought maybe Depression cooking was something you cooked when you were depressed like chocolate cake or cheesy hash browns. I could go for some of that kind of depression cooking right now :)
