Not always the healthiest recipes, but it's my go-to book for those classic flavors! ( )

This was my husband's favorite cookbook. It has the very best zucchini bread recipe I've ever used (and the only one I use now). It's "Lynn's Spicy Zucchini Bread" on page 281, and now that I'm reminded of it, I'll have to defrost some chopped zucchini and make some up tomorrow. Nothing like the smell of cinnamon and baking to make a winter day pleasant.

This is really a beautiful book, with common sense advice about the vegetables from the garden, and it's excellent for the novice cook, since it has pictures and instructions, and does not expect esoteric knowledge. It seems to be out of print, which is sad. ( )

Martha Stewart hit the scene with her glossy “Entertaining” book that same year, but Morash’s only aspiration is that the asparagus plants start producing by the third spring. Her pleasure in nature’s bounty, combined with her earnest enthusiasm for newfangled gourmet cookery, makes “The Victory Garden Cookbook” feel like a “Joy of Cooking” for the ’80s Cambridge set — that is, perfect for our times. If only each copy came with a Volvo 240 wagon.
