Description: When I moved to New England from California, I was struck by the number of wonderful traditions dictated by the changing seasons. It all seemed so right, like the pieces of a puzzle fitting perfectly together, a time for all things.
This book is my way of putting that puzzle together in a personal cookbook, which I hand-lettered and water colored. It includes all the special foods that herald the changing seasons: Asparagus in Mustard Cream Sauce in the spring, Pumpkin Soup in the fall, (Not just the Regular) Stew in the winter, and Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto in the summer. Also included are recipes from my childhood such as Potato Heaven, Hot Apple Soup, and Chicken & Dumplings. Interwoven throughout the look are suggestions for romantic evenings, children's parties, homemade gifts, and, of course, ideas for celebrations for each of the seasons.
Here is a maxim that says, "have-nothing in your home that you do not believe to be beautiful or know to be useful." This book, I hope, is both, and it comes to you with love from the heart of my home.
