A nice book reviewer

Mikki from "The Not So Perfect Housewife" has written a nice entry about "Clara's Kitchen." She is even going to cook her way through all of the recipes. It sounds like an excellent way to experience all the old meals from the Great Depression. Please continue to check back to her website to see how she's doing.

Thanks again Mikki.
