Review:
This is where I usually share the recipe I made and a photo, but of course I forgot to take one and it got eaten up.
I will tell you it was delicious!
At any rate, it is Earth Day and I think this book is a perfect way to celebrate the earth! Taking vegetables, that you can grow yourself even, and creating a dish that your family will love and devour, there really is nothing better.
I know in my home, meal times are the best times. Having a teenager in the house is like being haunted by ghosts... you see them infrequently. In my house, that frequency comes when meals do. Hey, a kids' got to eat, right?!
At least I am positive using cookbooks like this one contribute to his growth development as well as his taste buds. As a mom, you can't ask for much more. I'll keep using cookbooks like this one to keep him coming home for the "good eats".
So be sure to check out the DK Earth Day Boutique for yourself. Maybe you're the gardener instead of the cook, maybe you're both. They have something for everyone!

  1. Sounds like a good cookbook. We have our garden started and I love collecting cookbooks! Stopping by from the Monthly Keyword Reading Challenge where I posted my April review of Little Women.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
