I was quite surprised today to see a negative review of this cookbook, but when I saw that the reviewer had not actually made any of the recipes, that went a little ways towards explaining how anyone could give this book a negative review.

I am a gardener, and I bought this cookbook with the idea of collecting more recipes for the abundance of squash my garden typically produces.

I have made four of the recipes in this cookbook, and each has been a standout. The Moroccan meatball soup is fantastic (although all the chopping/dicing does make the prep a little time-consuming), and it only improves as a leftover.

I have made several recipes from this cookbook as gifts -- always to rave reviews and requests for the recipes.

I have purchased two additional copies of this cookbook as gifts.

This one's a winner, especially if you are a squash lover or a gardener.

In my quest to find a really good, foolproof recipe book that uses squash and pumpkins, this book was a waste of time except for the beautiful photographs. Most of the recipes are so exotic and the ingredient list so long that I would never ever attempt to try them. Many of her recipes are just roasted meat with squash rounds served along side. In my opinion, this does not count as a squash recipe.

This is also a very small book, with only about 40 recipes. I read through this book more than twice looking for any recipe that I would actually make. None fit the bill. The only one that even stirred me was for middle eastern meatball and squash soup--but I didn't make her recipe. Instead I made my own with more familiar flavors and less ingredients.

Nice to look at, however totally impractical to use.

But... There is another book that I really enjoyed:

The Classic Zucchini Cookbook has tons of recipes for both summer and winter squash.

Kinda small for a cook book. I love the recipes but there just aren't that many... I knocked off two stars as a significant portion of the recipes don't actually use pumpkin as a main ingredient. It's just an additive.

I just got this today. It has some unique and tasty-looking recipes. Even the run-of-the-mill recipes you'll find in all the other pumpkin cookbooks, i.e., pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, risotto, pumpkin cheesecake, etc., have a classier twist to them. There's a pineapple-pumpkin-walnut cake with an orange cream cheese frosting that looks like a carrot cake but sounds WAY better (no peeling and shredding all those carrots!). There's also some beautiful salads included as well. My only complaint is that it isn't longer. I would love more pumpkin recipes like these from this author.

This little cookbook is a real gem. Specifically, the recipes for Orange-Frosted Pumpkin Muffins and Butternut Squash-Pear Bisque are among the fall staples in our house-- they're really delicious and uncomplicated to prepare. I love to cook with pumpkin year-round, and I found easy, inspired recipes in this book. I've enjoyed this cookbook enough to share it as a gift with fellow pumpkin-lovers.
