So far between my mom and I we have tried 8 recipes and they have all been excellent. We have tried both the double berry freezer jam and the granny smith freezer jam, the sweet onion pudding, the tomato-zucchini tart, the chicken enchiladas, the lime-raspberry bites, the salted caramel strawberries, and the ham and tomato pie. There is a picture for almost every recipe. Hope Southern Living comes out with more cookbooks like this with great pictures and great recipes.

I received this book as a gift and I'm very pleased. Few cookbooks inspire me to want to make most, if not all, of the recipes like this one does. It is appropriately divided by season and the recipes call for simple ingredients most cooks should already have on hand. My only complaint (and the reason it is 4-stars and not 5) is that the recipes call for processed ingredients (such as store-bought pie crusts, salad dressings, breads and jams). I prefer cooking from scratch, and while I can easily substitute homemade versions where commercial ingredients are called for, I think that offering basic recipes as an alternative to processed ingredients would better fit the healthy and organic theme of the book. Only a couple basic recipes are offered, and are somewhat obscurely placed in the book so they are easily overlooked. Well done though!

When I saw the title I had to have it as we have a farmstand and we are gearing up for a fruitful season. That being said, I have never gone wrong with a Southern Living cookbook. The recipes are usually easy to prepare and always delicious. Even though I farm in the Adirondacks now, I still believe all girls raised in the south should have a strand of pearls and a subscription to Southern Living (if only for the recipes) on their 16th birthday. My own Baby Girl scoffs at this notion but she sure can whip up great meals. Try the corn meal encrusted artichoke hearts with garlic aioli. I recently ate at a upscale Vermont restaurant and these were on the menu. Now you know were they got the recipe! Simply Scrumptious!

I love cooking. I love cooking foods in season. I love to cook fresh. This book has great recipes for all of these. Even though I live in Australia, I am able to just reverse the seasons and bingo I can cook beautiful, fresh dishes with our own fresh produce from local farmers markets. If it is good to use in Australia, it must be the best in the USA.

I have a large collection of cook books...many are from Southern Living. This book is a fresh approach to seasonal Farmer's Market shopping and cooking. I am giving several to ladies in my family because it has many different ideas for fresh spring/summer/fall produce..Peach Pecan Ice Cream, chilled fruit soups, thirst quenching fruit teas and coolers, jams to make in minutes and then into the freezer, and a fresh produce and herb primer instructing how to select, store, prepare and cook all sorts of garden delights....need I say more? Lots of great information for inexperienced cooks to make a meal to be proud of, and nifty new ideas for seasoned pros to get a new enthusiasm about eating healthy and DELICIOUS foods!

My friend LOVES Farmers Markets, and goes every weekend. This book is perfect for anyone who enjoys the "seasonal" approach to ingredients and produce that this book offers! It highlights which items are at their peak during different seasons, and provides multiple recipes (each with it's own enticing picture), that highlight the best attributes of the produce while it's at its peak. Also, there are tips and tricks sprinkled throughout on anything from how to pick the perfect artichoke, to the best way to store peaches. She loved the book, and promised to make a few of the recipes for me the next time I visit.

It is rare for me to get so excited about a cookbook (because, let's face it, a cookbook means WORK), but this new one by Southern Living is easily the best I've ever seen.

Focusing on fresh, local ingredients, each recipe is categorized by season, so the ingredients we will be buying will definitely be at their peak, making for a better tasting end result. A beautiful full-color photograph accompanies each recipe and the steps given are easy to follow, even for beginners, like myself. Tips on adjusting flavors, substituting ingredients, and storage are also included right next to the recipe, which is really helpful.

So far, my favorite recipes have been the Maple Coffee and the Rhubarb Upside Cake, but I can't wait to try the Caramel Apples and the Eggplant Parmesan. Yum!

A section at the front of the book explains how to best use the book and reasons for buying local ingredients. The back has a great index, a list of local farmer's markets by state, as well as a list of food festivals by state, which was a really neat feature. I learned about 4 food festivals in Virginia that I had never even heard of.

This book would make an excellent gift for someone that grows their own garden, as well as those who like to shop local. It's on my Christmas gift list for sure!

This cookbook is full of beautiful pictures and even better looking recipes! The recipes are easy to follow and if you live in a small town like myself the ingredients are easy to acquire and don't require a special order. I have already told several family members about this book and they are excited as I am. I love that the book breaks down the recipes by season. And the back of the book discusses what's in season when and how to pick the best of the best. Definitely worth the price and worth the time! A must for anybody in your life who wants fresher alternatives to the everyday.
