“I have used some of the recipes already and love them. I really like the way [the book] is separated by season. Great job!” ~Sylvia
“I’m finding that even if I don’t have all the ingredients for exact recipes, they are great inspiration for improvised variations. The ingredient index is very useful for this! ~Kristi
