I truly enjoyed finding a cookbook that didn’t call for cans of processed foods. I was even amazed to find a recipe for Kolaches, which are a sweet bread dough filled with all sorts of tasty breakfast fillings like eggs or fruit. We haven’t been able to enjoy Kolaches since we moved to Georgia from Texas years ago. (The Kolache Factory is a popular chain in Texas similar to Dunkin Donuts) I can’t wait to try a home made version!
