Book of the week: Fritos Pie: Stories, Recipes, and More. This book not only delves into the history of the famous corn chips but offers some pretty interesting recipes, from (of course) Frito Pie to Fritos fruitcake. Do you need this book? Well, let me say this. If you want interesting cocktail party banter, you'd be smart to keep this one prominently displayed on your coffee table!
