It has a ton of seasonal recipes, including some canning recipes, and I feel it accommodates a wide range of cooking abilities. I also love the aspect of the seasons in this cookbook because it makes the reader (and the cook) more aware of what is in season, and how to use it. There are recipes in here that I would have never known about otherwise and now I can't live without...
For instance, there is the apple chutney recipe which will taste as great on a bagel with cream cheese as it does with a nice piece of meat!
And there is a fabulous cranberry coffee cake, which I now make at least once a fall season. It's a perfect balance of sweet and tart--great as a breakfast OR dessert.
There is also the pear custard pie, as well as the pear upside down gingerbread:
This didn't last too long in my house!
This pie was a snap and could be made practically last minute!
This year, I am also making the FABULOUS savory squash bread pudding for Thanksgiving.
