Fried Chicken Liver

I guess those craving their chicken liver fix will need to recreate the dish at home.

Strawberries n’ Cream French Toast

Cracker Barrel’s Strawberries n’ Cream French Toast is a thing of the past. The chain announced the discontinuation of its most popular breakfast item in 2015.
