• Who wrote it: Susie Middleton
• Who published it: The Taunton Press
• Number of recipes: 125
• Other highlights: The moral of the story with this cookbook is Don't wait. Eat it now. Each recipe captures fruits and vegetable at their best — that moment when the greens are their greenest and the tomatoes are their reddest. Each season has their super stars, and Susie Middleton carries us through each one. As you might expect from the former editor of Fine Cooking, the recipes are also accompanied with supportive tips and plenty of ideas for playing with the recipes. As a wannabe gardener, I also love reading Susie's stories of growing her farm and her rural life on Martha's Vineyard.
