I don’t know about you but I love Free Stuff. Today I am sharing one of my new favorite cookbooks for tasty vegetable inspiration. You can win your copy for Free! All you need to do is like my facebook page and share this post to be entered to win.
So about this amazing book. I want to introduce you to Farm Girl Fresh. I originally bought this book because I liked their no nonsense approach to real food, cooking and recipes free from refined sugar. What I didn’t realize is this book is full of tasty vegetable inspiration, easy ways to use a variety of different vegetables. Making incorporating vegetables into a daily diet simple and interesting. The authors Joyce and Colleen are experienced, local, MN “Farm Girls’ they are sweet and know their stuff. They feel that, “eating well and having a sustainable healthy family lifestyle starts from the ground up (garden to table or farm to table). It is about taking back the kitchen and preparing simple, healthy meals with pure ingredients.” I could not agree more. I love sharing quality food with my family.
The more I do the more excited and willing they are to try new things. Involving children and spouses in the cooking process from the beginning is one way to broaden their tastes for new and healthy foods. Kids especially tend to be more excited to try something new if they had a hand in growing or preparing it.
This book has really useful, and practical tips for growing, preparing, cooking, canning, and freezing a variety of produce so you can get the best quality items all year. I also enjoyed the sections “Dig into This” that share interesting facts about specific produce like that you can ripen tomatoes indoors and tips on how to do it well. Also, “How Does Your Garden Grow” solutions for natural pest and weed control in your garden. Tips on how to plant a garden easily and well. Kids love playing in the dirt, and you can grow food even in something as a simple patio garden pot. You don’t need a lot of stuff or experience to have success with a few key vegetables. This book will help set you up both in and out of the kitchen.
Anyways, I love it and I thought you would too. Give this one a try for a guilt free treat. Zucchini Fudge Brownies, recipe below. Yes, these are gluten and dairy free too!
