This is an amazing cookbook. Gorgeous pictures, delicious sounding and looking recipes, very good instructions, and nothing strange (all just stuff that you would have in your kitchen).

Here are some that I have marked to make in the near future -
Applesauce nut bread
Banana zucchini bread
Peach muffins - YUM!
Zucchini fritters
Oatmeal cake
Banana cookies
Pumpkin cookies
Thick and chunky salsa - I have made salsa several times (I have a garden and grow my own tomatoes, onion, and peppers) and it always tastes good but is never hot enough! I am going to try this recipe and see how it turns out! I want to make a bunch and can it!

*** Note -
I am a vegetarian and a very healthy eater. There are a lot of recipes in here that I would never use. A lot of them have meat and there are a lot of yummy fattening baked goods (which I will refrain from making). But this is still a great cookbook! I appreciate all the hard work and quality that was put into it!

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Herald Press  -  Thank You!
