    Must get this wonderful cookbook!!

    In The Cracker Kitchen, Janis Owens has brilliantly combined a cookbook of delicious Southern recipes with heartwarming family stories. Each mouth-watering recipe is introduced by a very humorous family anecdote. Along with the homespun recipes, she thoughtfully provides entire special occasion menus. She begins each menu with its delightful cracker history. Many charming black-and-white family photos warmly depict many of her ancestors...sometimes intimately sharing a meal. She reveals many secrets of good old-fashioned Southern-style cooking. Ms. Owens has magnificently written a loving tribute to her family in a style that is both entertaining and inspiring. I absolutely loved this book. Written in an appealing folksy style, I was truly captivated. I learned its not just about cooking a tasty meal, but its about the memories of sharing it with a table of loved ones. I highly recommend this wonderful cookbook for yourself and all your friends!!

    Great Recipes & A Great Read!

    I don't normally sit & read a cookbook but this one had so many wonderful stories accompanying each recipe that I couldn't help myself. Before I knew it I was making a list of friends that I knew would enjoy receiving this book as a gift. My next list was which recipes I would make first & who the lucky diners would be. I've already made several of the dishes from the book & each one has been a hit.
