Many of my ideas for saving money come from stories of my parents and grandparents youth, so I really appreciated the web site Great Depression Cooking with Clara. The 93 year old Clara takes you step by step through the process of making nutritious meals inexpensively. While cooking, she offers anecdotes about the depression and shares additional ways to save money. I love learning new things, so I am going to share something I learned while watching Clara make Pasta with Peas: Once the liquid is boiling, add the pasta; cover, then turn off the fire and let the hot liquid cook the pasta. It takes a few minutes longer, but you save gas or electricity cooking pasta this way.
