I stumbled upon Clara's Great Depression cooking video titled "Poor Man's Meal" at the blog "Nine Circles of Debt." I loved the video and went to YouTube to watch more of them.
Clara's YouTube description is: "93 year old cook and great grandmother, Clara, recounts her childhood during the Great Depression as she prepares meals from the era. Learn how to make simple yet delicious dishes while listening to stories from the Great Depression." Pasta and potatoes are the two most common ingredients in her recipes.
Here are several of Clara's videos from YouTube

Cooked Bread (Panecotto)
Poor Man's Meal
Egg Drop Soup
