    Wow, all of these cookbooks sound amazing! I love checking out new recipes that have been tested and proven, so like the sound of THE COMPLETE BEST OF BRIDGE COOKBOOKS VOLUME TWO and BEST OF BRIDGE SLOW COOKER COOKBOOK . My daughter has several food allergies & in tolerances, so have to adjust recipes to accommodate them. I tend to stick with the same old tried & worked meals, but would love to alternate with new ones like Good Morning Irish Oatmeal.

    So my Grandmother swore by the Best of Bridge cook books. So I was surprised to see this & that they are still going strong. Then I see this recipe and they mention Stampede & Calgary thus very close to my heart. I also needed a brunch recipe today so this is working out so great!
