Meet Clara, a 93-year-old great-granny who's online cooking show features recipes she learned as a girl during the Great Depression.
Great Depression Cooking With Clara features simple, inexpensive recipes from the 1930s, including egg drop soup, cooked bread, and, of course, lots of pasta! It's hard to believe, but most of Clara's meals cost on average 50 cents per serving.
And guess what? Clara's show is a huge hit on the Internet! Taking a clue from this Depression-era granny, other food bloggers are following suit...
Inspired by Clara, I went on a search for other Depression recipes. Here are few interesting ones that I came up with:
- Depression Recipes in the Recipe Swap! Group on CafeMom
- Low-Fat BLT by Rachel Ruff of the Denver Cooking Examiner
- Depression Cake from AllRecipes.com
- Depression Soup from ThriftyFun.com
- Dumplings from Recipezaar.com
Do you have a Depression-era recipe to share?
