Have you seen Clara Cannucciari’s Great Depression Cooking videos on YouTube? Isn’t she darling? Simple, inexpensive, healthy meals are shown along with charming Clara telling her family stories from the Depression. Filmed by her grandson, they make you wish you could be at her dining table, listening to her talk and eating her meals made with love. Clara has a book out now, which I haven’t checked out, called Clara’s Kitchen: Wisdom, Memories, and Recipes from the Great Depression.
This week, I’m including a few of her meals with minor adaptions (namely, less oil and salt.) Click the links to see Clara preparing those dishes.
