Wartime recipes focus on doing more with less

Have a garden and a few pantry staples? There's much you can create, says Calgary historian, vintage lifestyle blogger and cookbook author.

Vintage lifestyle blogger/historian Danny Randell has published a book on wartime recipes, called Have Rations, Will Cook! The Calgary author shares a couple of recipes here--examples of creating meals from whatever was easily available during World War II. Randell's book of over 40 meals and desserts is available through his website, myvintagelifestyle.ca.  See the video of making War Cake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXcQkPKxOyY
