This book has been on my nightstand as I have slowly but surely worked through it each night. Robin Mather is a food journalist who lost her job and her husband in one week and moved back to rural Michigan to live a simpler life. The book looks seasonally at her year eating locally and seasonally for $40 a week. Filled with essays and recipes about celebrating simple living and the home arts.
