Depression Era cooking with Clara

I spent a good deal of the morning watching the You-tube videos of Clara from the depression era cooking. I am amazed at so many of her recipes, were ones that my Mom incorporated into our family, in the 50's and 60's. Or ones she told me about. Also, Clara uses a fork to scramble the eggs - I do that too, because my Mom did. I've tried using a whisk but it feels foreign to me. To me a whisk is for stirring the lumps out of your pan gravy! Little things she does, I do too - once again, learning them naturally by watching my mom - as I am sure she watched her mom, and so on and so forth.

I feel like Clara - only younger - and I'm not Italian.
