If you're interested in depression-era cooking, pick up a copy of "Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression" by Mildred Armstrong Kalish. (http://www.amazon.com/Little-Heathens-Spirits-During-Depression/dp/0553384244/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1235936379&sr=8-1)

 

I enjoyed it because my mom grew up on a midwest farm in the post-depression era. A lot of it resonated with me, and gave new insight into why mom (and grandma) did things certain ways.

 

The author's chapter on food (including recipes) is a parade of old family favorites, right down to the final harvest vegetable soup.

 

It's just an entertaining read.
