Customer Review

on April 10, 2010
I usually pick up a few magazines and books to read while I am in Lowes to stave off the boredom while DH looks at everything hardware and power toolwise. Today I happened to pick up this book. I was intrigued as I had read the Square Foot Gardener book. I had never implemented anything in the book mind you, but it was still an enjoyable read. I figured that anyone who is that awesome a gardener must have some awesome fresh recipes. I was definitely not disappointed!

First of all, the book is beautiful. Nice large colorful pictures of not only the dishes, but also of the vegetables, herbs, etc. that are grown to make the dishes. The book is divided into sections for each vegetable with instructions on growing, pairing, etc, in the beginning, followed by a couple of recipes highlighting each vegetable. There is also a section and a few recipes for herbs. Some of the recipes are a variation of classics, but others are new inventions. The ingredients are easy to find so you won't have to search high and low for that one ingredient that makes the dish special. All the recipes looked and sounded yummy. They are also relatively health, using sour cream (you can substitute non-fat if you choose) and no butter. There was only one I thought wasn't the greatest because it uses 2 cans of cream soup. Soup being very high in salt.

I was so excited about this book that I almost bought it right then and there at $17.97, until I remembered amazon. So, I rushed home to order it right away. Thank you Mr. Bartholomew for a wonderful cookbook! I can't wait to get the book in and get cooking.
