Seasonality is now more important than ever for foodies and home cooks and this new book is both an exhaustive recipe resource and an authoritative produce guide. With 1000 recipes organized by season, and "Season's Best" features highlighting which produce tastes amazing right now and how to make the most of it, Cooking Season by Season is an essential resource for being in touch with the flavors of the season.
  • Features over 750 full colour images
  • Includes Recipe Choosers for each chapter listing all the dishes that can be cooked for each seasonal ingredient
MY OPINION:
When I saw this book, I knew I had to get it. I love knowing what foods are in season and best to be consumed. With my love for cooking, I was eager, and chose two recipes.
 First main course. Of course.
Tomato, Bean and Zucchini Stew
I don't eat vegetarian often. I'm a meat chick. Well, you should know that by my Beef Ambassadorship.... anyways, I enjoyed this dish. The beans filled me up the way meat does, and the best part is, being a diabetic beans are really good for me. (They're high in fiber.) Plus, I'm a bit of a zucchini-virgin... I mean, I've had it, but never really cooked it before... so didn't know what to expect. Was really friggin' good!  
Best part is, the whole house smelled so good for hours afterwards. (Seriously, it's 3 hours past and it still smells amazing in here.) 
So now onto the second dish I tackled. Dessert.
Apple and Blackberry Brown Betty
OMG!! This was divine!!!
I can't have tons of sugar and this only had a couple teaspoons in the whole thing. It was sweetened naturally with the fruit and ice cream. It was so good! It hit the spot after that main dish. And it's also one I think I will make again and again.
I look forward to cooking some more out of this book. I definitely look forward to checking out each season as it comes, and mark my words, I will be cooking seasonally from it!

5/5

Recommend? YES!!!

  2. A dessert with only a few teaspoons of sugar is one I can have. It looks delicious!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
