Excellent cookbook. Many of our family's favorite recipes come from this book. Lots of rich, elegant, special things to make; great for entertaining. My mother would make the chunky apple walnut cake once a year and I always looked forward to it. Also has a recipe for the best cranberry bread I have ever tasted.
