What perfect timing to run across this book, right when I'm preparing my Thanksgiving menu, but please don't limit this book just to this event. This book is filled with so many delectable edibles made with fresh healthy core foods. Just reading the Table of Contents can make anyone drool, but this book is not just about the recipes. This book is also filled with wonderful heart felt stories. The combination of which is striking and makes for a great edition to be added to any kitchen.
I do want to touch on a sampling of the recipes so that you get the proper idea. First the contents are split as Brown Lunch Bag, Treasure Hunt, Harvest Celebration, Winter Snow Day, Tapping the Maple Tree, Breakfast in Bed, Tea Party, Date Night, Rooftop BBQ, and the list goes on. You get the idea? Now the actual recipes (YUMMY!); here are some of my favorites, this is a micro list compared to what is contained within this book' Grilled Fennel and Watermelon Salad, Fried Hominy with Chile and Lime, Turkish-Style Eggs with Yogurt, Cumin Glazed Carrots, Pecan Pie with Salted Maple Ice Cream, Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Cranberries and Almonds, Spice-Rubbed Steak and Mango Chutney Crostini, Wild Mushroom Risotto with Caramelized Leeks and again the list goes on and on. I highly recommend foodies go get this book now.
