A cookbook for all seasons

There is a fantastic cookbook out there called Simply in Season (thanks to Annie again!). I would highly suggest it for gardeners who like to cook what they grow! Here is some information from their website:

Through stories and simple “whole foods” recipes, Simply in Season, a new World Community Cookbook explores how the food we put on our tables impacts our local and global neighbors. It shows the importance of eating local, seasonal food — and fairly traded food — inviting readers to make choices that offer security and health for our communities, for the land, for body and spirit.

In April 2004, when a call was put out for seasonal local recipes, just under 800 contributors responded over the next year, submiting over 1,500 recipes and participating in just under 3,000 recipe tests. The authors Cathleen Hockman-Wert and Mary Beth Lind shepherded the recipes through the testing stages and choosing the best seasonal range of delicious recipes.

Upon futher research, I stumbled upon the co-author's blog (and you know how much we love blogs!):
