My parents were married during the Great Depression, along with their many siblings. They were all farmers and we got together quite often, almost always including food. Talk about “resilient relatives”! They produced nearly all their food, and “made do” or adapted as was certainly required those days. Their conviction came from deep faith and never left, leaving a lasting impression on our entire family to trust your intuition and remain optimistic that with hard work all will be fine. The first recipe is adapted from Milk Street magazine, featuring wonderful smoked paprika used like the Spanish cooks, to preserve its smoky aroma, and also a successful combined cooking method. These two delicious recipes remind me of those beloved old cooks, who never wasted a morsel!
