I enjoyed this book and some of the recipes. I remember a lot of this from my grandparents.

My experience of "use up, make do, do without," calm acceptance of hardship, and subdued emotions was much more the norm in my family and others around me than the violence and fierce clannishness of Hillbilly Elegy.… (mer)
