Since I still have a few spring vegetables available, I started there. I tried out the Deep-Fried Baby Artichokes With Roasted Pepper Sauce. This was a bit more of an involved recipe, but the directions were clear and it came out well, even though I don't deep fry a lot. I would recommend reading over the directions first for preparatory steps. I also tried radishes with sorrel butter since I haven't much to do with radishes other than use them in a salad. This was an easier, simple recipe that I am glad to have; I'm also happy to see a few other radish recipes to try. For summertime there are a few recipes for canning and preserving, which is good for me, I am always looking for different ways to preserve food and I plan on trying the spicy tomato sauce! From the summer section, I just had to try the Vegetable Packed Mac and Cheese with Popcorn Topping, this turned out a little different, but good. The recipe was very straightforward. From the fall and winter sections I have several recipes picked out to try including Roasted Carrot and Cauliflower Salad, Baked Parmesan Steak Fries with Tomato Dipping Sauce, Sweet Potato and Marshmallow Casserole, Roasted Broccoli with Hot Pepper Flakes and the Pasta, Broccoli and Two-Cheese Casserole.
Overall, a great book for those who grow their own veggies or who like to go to the farmers market. There are 100 recipes and I won't be using them all, but I plan on using many.
