crissybird! You are so lucky you live in the country! I wish I could move today! Actually - I think I would prefer a little town like Mayberry - small with just enough people in it and no big malls and shopping centers. We’ve had enough restaurants in the family and I’ve had my share of running restaurants cooking! I miss it - I’ve thought of a B & B but I’m not too keen on strange people sleeping in my home! With my luck it would be Charles Manson and Jack the Ripper and their families!
I’m Italian - but my mom believed in International cooking. I’ve lived in a few neighborhoods where I’ve gotten to meet some of the best cooks from all over - so I consider myself very lucky for that. My dad’s mom was from PA and she loved Southern cooking too. Many PA people think and cook southern!
You’re still a bit new to the site - but when you have time - check out the Search option and take a look at Depression Era recipes. I’ve posted bunches of them - if you are interested in those. And I’ve shared many oldies from the family and others passed down as well.
It’s great to know that you are interested in different types of cooking as well as home cooking and oldies!
