I think Ms. Carter is a very brilliant writer,I have never read a cookbook that allowed me to cook my favorite kinds of food and know that it's also healthy.I also enjoyed reading about her childhood memories about our Grandfather's Sunday breakfast, and Nana's Graham Cracker Custard Pies.If only all her readers could've experience what we experience you will see where she gets it from.Was this review helpful?
