Inspirational

Born in Melrose Park, Illinois, on August 18, 1915, Cannucciari went on to live through America's Great Depression. During these difficult times, her freshly emigrated Sicilian American parents were hit especially hard by America's economic woes. Clara's mother found inventive ways to stretch the family's meals and they emerged from the Depression safe and healthy.

Clara Cannucciari left school because her family was too poor to afford the proper attire for her to attend, so she reports in one of her videos, she went to work in a factory filling Twinkies during the depression years.

In 2007, her grandson Christopher Cannucciari began filming Clara preparing her mother's Depression meals and assembled the footage into the YouTube series Great Depression Cooking with Clara, it became very popular and she went on to write her first cook book in her 90's which to us makes her a very inspirational and exceptional woman.

Clara Cannuciari Cooking The Poorman's Meal

The Poorman's Meal

In her book Clara's Kitchen, she gives readers words of wisdom to buck up America's spirits, recipes to keep the wolf from the door, and tells her story of growing up during the Great Depression with a tight-knit family and a "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" philosophy of living. In between recipes for pasta with peas, eggplant parmesan, chocolate covered biscotti, and other treats Clara gives readers practical advice on cooking nourishing meals for less. Using lessons she learned during the Great Depression, she writes, for instance, about how to conserve electricity when cooking and how you can stretch a pot of pasta with a handful of lentils. She reminisces about her youth and writes with love about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Clara's Kitchen takes readers back to a simpler, if not more difficult time, and gives everyone what they need right now: hope for the future and a nice dish of warm pasta from everyone's favorite grandmother, Clara Cannuciari, a woman who knows what's really important in life.

Persuading Annie by Melissa Nathan

Meet Annie Markham. Gentle, sweet and kind. Except for her dark side. A dark side called Jake Mead. Seven years ago he'd been her entire world, even though her godmother had tried to persuade her to dump him. But when the going got tough, Annie's 'tough' got going. Jake's hasty departure from her life proved that a) godmothers are cleverer than they look and b) the only thing reliable about men is that they're totally unreliable.
Now Jake is back...
