When looking for a great recipe I find if I can’t remember how my mom made a casserole, dessert, or snack I ask her. I’m super proud of my mom for teaching herself to bake and cook when she got married to my dad at the age of 19. My dad was raised on a farm and he was used to a table full of two different kinds of fresh meat vegetables and desserts all prepared by his mom who was an excellent cook.

When mom was four years old and as she was growing up she had to make her daddy’s eggs bacon and toast for breakfast. She also had to make his sandwich for work on weekends. Food and money was scarce and she was raised by older parents who had survived the depression.

Other than making food for her daddy on the weekends, she was not allowed to be cooking or baking in the kitchen. If a meal was ruined there was not money to buy more and you went to bed hungry.

If mom is busy I head to our book shelves full of her old recipe books:Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book-The American Woman’s Cook Book-Tried Recipes for the Bride-Homemade Bread-Economy In Cooking-Kitchen Guide

Another helpful source has been to GOOGLE IT! πŸ™‚ spend with pennies has been a favorite one of late for me as I seem to be rushing from one project to the next preparing for our English Bulldog puppies to arrive April 27, 2022!

Great Depression Cooking OH! My heart! Clara you are awesome. She caught my eye in the weekly magazine my husband brings me home. Woman’s World I just watched her on youtube this morning while she made Poorman’s Meal.

At night and on weekend mornings, my husband and I will sit and watch some very tasty meals being prepared on Youtube. I listed them above in the heading. Have a wonderful weekend :)Jen
