As the weather heats up the farmer's markets are starting to sprout all over the city.  I love strolling through aisles and aisles of fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers.  Yum!  In keeping with that farm fresh spirit I have several cookbooks to recommend to you:
  1. (top) Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It and Other Cooking Projects, by Karen Solomon, $16.50.  Beautifully illustrated and designed, this cookbook has delicious recipes for things like apple butter and rosemary and olive oil crackers.  Delicious! (Bonus: I have those light blue pinch cups seen on the cover! How cool is that?)
  2. (middle) In Season: Cooking with Vegetables and Fruit, by Sarah Raven, $26.40.  This cookbook also has great photographs and scrumptious recipes for all your farmer's market finds.  The best part?  Raven breaks down the year into two month "seasons" so you can find recipes specifically tailored to what's available any time of the year.
  3. (bottom) Meals Made Easy, Real Simple Magazine, $16.50.  As always, this Real Simple publication makes everything look incredible and easy and awesome.  I can't wait to pair these recipes with some great organic ingredients . . .
