Pumpkin seeds are loaded with zinc, magnesium, vitamin E and healthy oils.

One medium-sized zucchini has as much potassium as an average banana, and more than a cup of fat-free milk.

Cucurbitacins, found in many types of squash, are powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. There is promising research, too, supporting their anticancer properties.

more than I ever wanted to know about squash cooking, but that's the whole point of it, so this is not a complaint about the book. I think I'll try the brownie thing and serve it without mentioning it to folks to see their reaction.

Informative and well thought out book about squash. The Introduction discusses: Nature's Unsung Miracle, A Nutritional Powerhouse, Meet the Squashes, Techniques for Handling, and Simple Squash Recipes to Get You Started. As a seasoned home cook, the hard outer rind always intimidated me. Rob Firing not only describes how to cut a squash, but includes photos. The recipes in this book are well written and include photos. The title says it all.

Super Good!

I strive to have a balanced diet, healthy and lean. I am a squash lover and eater and from this book, you will learn about the different squashes and their nutritional value. The recipes are easy to follow and use basic real food, not cans of soup etc. And I never knew squash could be used in desserts and breakfasts! I can't wait to try some of these recipes. I love that every recipe has a picture, which makes it even more appealing!

I can't wait to start cooking! I enjoyed the information on different types of squash, and the pictures to help identify them. There are instructions on cutting them and different ways of preparing them to use in the recipes. I like that each recipe refers you back to the page number of the instructions for preparation ie purée page x or roasted page xx
