Falafel one of many family-friendly recipes in new cookbook

Over the last several years I’ve become much more interested in knowing how and where the food I cook and serve is grown and who was involved in its production. I feel happy when I know I am contributing to a healthier life for my family and myself. And I feel a responsibility to contribute to a more sustainable way of living on this planet.

That’s why I love farmers market season and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). And that’s why I can’t put down my new cookbook.

“Cooking Up The Good Life: Creative Recipes for the Family Table” by Jenny Breen and Susan Thurston is filled with no-fuss, no-fancy-ingredients-necessary recipes that use real food, fresh and seasonal, all packed with nutritious vitamins and minerals and plenty of delicious flavor.
