Reviews - What do customers think about Grow It. Eat It.?
A little bit of everything, with beautiful pictures Jul 3, 2007
As the title suggest, this book takes you from seed to oven. The gardening information is aimed at the novice, but is fun reading for the advanced. The recipes are great, too. It covers veggies, herbs, fruits and flowers, so has something for everyone. The pictures are beautiful, both the illustrations and photographs are works of art.
Scrumptious and Educational! Sep 30, 2005
I may not enjoy cooking but I love to read cookbooks. At night before I go to sleep, I will devour a cookbook, salivating as I read the recipes and any information that might be included. And I've found a wonderful cookbook that is filled with delicious food and fascinating information about the food.
Grow It. Eat It. by Linda Larson is more than a cookbook. It contains essential information for gardeners, both the experienced and the novice. Larson discusses how to grow and then cook fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. And it is fascinating!
I suggest, if you love apples, you try the Sticky Apple Coffeecake. If blueberries are your thing, you might want to cook up some Blueberry Banana Bread. One of my favorite vegetables is asparagus. The Asparagus with Cashews is quick, easy and so delicious. I admit to fixing the Creamy Cucumbers and snacking on them one afternoon. And since potatoes are a personal favorite, I must mention the Garlic Mashed Potatoes. They are heavenly.
Armchair Interviews says: Grow It. Eat It. is so much more than a cookbook. We think you'll keep it close at hand in your kitchen.
