"Fresh From the Farm: A Year of Recipes and Stories," which includes stories and photos of farm life and 121 recipes....You might call it a complete recipe book for the good life." ~Zester Daily(Zester Daily)
Ever want to quit your job, move to the country and start a farm stand? Susie Middleton, former editor of Fine Cooking magazine, did. Fresh from the Farm is partly the chronicle of an eat-local startup and partly a farm cookbook, liberally strewn with sunlit snapshots of chickens and garden beds in full production. And because Middleton is a flavor fanatic as well as a cook and farmer, her recipes are memorable even if you don't get to cook with still-warm eggs, or just-picked tomatoes blushing from the vine.

"...a beautiful cookbook, featuring 125 recipes along with reflections on what it's like to live a simpler, humbler life and the satisfaction to be had running a farmstand, selling vegetables and eggs directly to the people who will eat them." ~The Oregonian(The Oregonian)
