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!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
