The cover of this cookbook was a bit marred but the inside was perfect! Now I won't need to borrow my friends!

Martha has given us more of her best recipes. I have tried many of them and like them all. I was only dissappointed the photo shown above is not the front cover of the book I received. Mine has the old cover. Perhaps they have a new version out using the cover above, but I got an older version? Excellent recipes!
