For many of us 50's children here on JAP, we have memories of Depression Era recipes that our parents continued to cook for us, even when the Depression was past. They didn't always use measurements, just what was on hand. Feel free to share your favorites, and antedotes.

Mix 1 part Dawn detergent to two parts hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and spray stained area. Let set for a couple of minutes and then rub gently with a damp cloth or cleaning brush to "stir" up stain. Let set maybe 8-10 minutes longer and clean with damp cloth or brush. For my spray bottle, I put 4 Tablespoons Dawn and 8 Tablespoons hydrogen peroxide and sprayed on areas. I got to cleaning so much, I had to mix up another batch. The lady said it worked wonders on men's shirt collars, too, however, I haven't tried that, yet. Oh, and she had a picture of her baby's bib with those milk stains on it, one before and one after and the stain was gone.

Sorry that was a corny joke,but true.I hope anyone battling depression is seeing the light thru the darkness.A new day has dawned and we are all here.I wish I had talked more to my Great Grandmother about The Great Depression.The biggest comment I remember her say,was it wasn't great.lol.She was a funny bird.Recession,Depression is it actually the same?Either way it is rough.The biggest thing Great Granny said was how they had their own hens for eggs.And some had cows for milk or goats.When I was little we had to use goat milk,it is really gross on corn flakes.Yuck!We had chickens for eggs too.We ate alot of eggs growing up.Great Granny said they swapped with neighbors alot,though.Milk for eggs and so on.Everyone have a great day or try to.Try hard,I am going to.

I was going through my mother's recipe box and came across this remedy that was sent to Ann Landers back in the early 90's. I chose to share it with JAP because I am all for natural cures and remedies, and know that it is all provided for us in nature. The cost of remedies are way out of many ones price r ange. And to know that our elders had used such simple means with phenominal results is so worth mentioning! The Pharmaceuticals, sometimes I believe, are only out to make money off of the needy and to keep you coming back. So here is one remedy worth trying that the Pharmaceuticals will not profit.

INSPIRATION shared with those beat down by lifes daily doses of pain and suffering.
