I happened upon this little book when it first came out, and have consistantly been delighted by the recipes inside. As a homesteader with a very large (and ever-growing) vegetable garden, I'm always looking for more ideas for specific veggies. The fact that this cookbook is arranged by vegetable or fruit (what a concept!) makes it easy to use and easy to find just the recipe you need. Each food has several different types of recipes associated with it, including cold or hot, raw or cooked, and incorporates interesting herbs and other seasonal foods as well. In fact, there's an entire section just devoted to herbs and edible flowers. What's especially nice is that it's not just tomatoes and zucchini -- other home-grown produce covered include melons, chard, fennel, leeks, and a cornucopia of different salad ideas. You'll be delighted by this book, especially if you're an avid gardener.

I especially enjoyed the format; a different "chapter" for each type of vegetable. For someone with a garden, it makes it very easy to find recipes for what's ready to eat. I've made several of the recipes and would say my family has enjoyed the majority of them. Worth buying.
A cookbook that everyone should own!

I have never had a cookbook that I used so much. Every week before I go out grocery shopping, I get out this book to decide what to make for the week. Every recipe is healthy and tastes great! It's especially great if you have a garden because it gives lots of ideas for every type of vegetable.
