Oh my goodness. My sweet tooth's begging me to get a copy, and to get busy baking that Butterscotch Pie!

Thanks for the recommendation.

What a great book. I love the sound of those recipes and anything to do with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is a must for me! Reading those recipes made me nostalgic Barbara. I miss Cracker Barrel.
