    Default WWII recipes

    I just got this email from Taste of Home that has 35 "thrifty" recipes that people made during WWII. I thought they'd be fun to look at if you're studying that time period

    When we moved I lost my favorite WWII recipe. It had been in the Family fun magazine for the Olympics in Australia for Anzac cookies. Those were the best.

    Those recipes made me chuckle due to the excess use of eggs. I remember my great grandmother telling me how they used mayo to make cakes because it reduced the need for eggs and oil. We use to think of her Chocolate Mayo cake as a WWII cake

    Jill, this is the Anzac Biscuit recipe most Aussie's making on Anzac Day. Caster sugar is like a slightly finger grain of typical white sugar which you can totally use, and if you can't land your hands on true treacle molasses will work

    I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
