Great Depression Cooking with Clara

For anyone who hasn't seen this, you have to check it out. Clara is a 91 year old woman who has a seven part cooking segment on youtube, a different recipe each time, and with tips and stories about life in the kitchen during the depression. This is both useful and a hoot! I can only hope that I'm this active and alert when I'm her age! Enjoy ...

Wow, she does look great! But blech, canned peas. Seriously, looking at those made me shudder.

Also, I find it interesting that during the Depression (and in the past in general) people peeled their potatoes. From what I've read, that is practically the only part of a potato that has any actual nutrition, not just calories. I seriously haven't peeled a potato since I was a kid.

Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also
am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created some
nice procedures and we are looking to trade solutions with other folks, why
not shoot me an email if interested.
