Overall, the recipes are easy to follow and simple to make. Despite the missing active and total times, each recipe seems to take a reasonable amount of time. The harder step is finding and preparing the ingredients. Nevertheless, the seasonal fruit and vegetable chart in the back makes it easy to decide when to cook what. In addition, the tips spread throughout the book prove helpful when cooking.
One small glitch in the book is that it lacks more pictures. Because of the elaborate recipes, more photographs would make it easier, and more enjoyable, to prepare each dish. Those pictures that do appear show great colors and healthy-looking meals, which is why more photographs could only improve the overall impact of the book.
One recipe to try is the “Free-Range Organic ‘Airliner’ Chicken Breast.” It is a basic and easy-to-make recipe with a delicious flavor given by the herbs and the marinade. As for the corn pancakes showcased with it, keep in mind that they are indeed pancakes and nothing more. Tasty as they are, the Corn and Thyme Pancakes almost feel like a main dish of their own. For a quick, but delicious, snack or dessert, try the oatmeal cookies. They are unique in that they are chewy and tasty to the last bit.
