it was amazing
bookshelves: petprojects, highly-recommended
Recommended for: Anyone who loves farmers markets and gardening

If you love to experiment with fresh produce, this is a cookbook for you. Same goes for anyone frustrated with too many tomatoes or zucchini in their garden. And even though it's not strictly vegetarian, this book contains far more interesting vegetarian fare than every other vegetarian cookbook I've come across. Plus the carrot cake and papaya bread will knock your socks off!

Too many cook books de-emphasize vegetables, but this one places them on reverent display. It also runs the gamut from simplistic to several day complicated headache type recipes. It also contains plenty of catch all recipes so you can never wonder what to do with all those leftover bits.

The margins are another part of this book which shines. Look to them to answer any sort of selection, preparation or growing tips.

Favorites: Apple pie with cheddar cheese crust (best apple pie crust ever!); Chocolate zucchini cake with sour cream frosting; Papaya tea bread; Baby zucchini and squash blossom fritatta;
