Gift from my mom, complete with all sorts of local name-dropping :)

I like how the recipes are divided first by type (starters, soups, etc) and then by season. Recipes that are vegan or have a vegan option are clearly marked (not that that affects me much), and there's a decent index.

The barley risotto with leeks, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, and bacon was a big hit!

Really want to try the nut butter cookies though . . .
