The West Ladies.

This mother and three daughters are known as "The West Ladies". Years ago they moved to Tennessee and chose to live off the grid (no electricity). Their neighbors taught them, plus they have learned many of the old basic ways of life and homemaking. They share these skills in their DVDs on Bread Making, Candle Making, Soap Making, Gardening, Canning, Herbs, Dairy Delights, Sewing and Quilting. As I watch the DVDs, I get the feeling they are old friends and would love to go back and visit with them.
A West Ladies recipe I found online is -
Poor Man's "Zucchini" Crab Cakes
1 1/2 C. shredded zucchini, patted dry.
1 C. bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. grated onion
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
2 eggs slightly beaten
oil for frying
Combine all ingredients. Heat oil for frying and drop by rounded spoonful into oil and fry until crisp brown on both sides.
Serve with Tartar Sauce.
