I know I'm a bit late in actually getting around to reading this, but, that said, this is definitely a lifestyle-changing book. Whether you simply frequent your local farmers' market or build a large-scale garden in your backyard along with a do-it-yourself chicken coup, this book will change your thoughts about food, where you get it and how you eat it.
I'm still reading, but, of course, I did happen to get a chance to make the book's zucchini chocolate chip cookie recipe. I couldn't pass up the chance to actually get the kiddo to eat zucchini, right? Plus, I'm always looking for any excuse to have some cookies on hand for late-night snacking. It's a weakness.
You want some now, don't you?
Tips, or not:
1) If you want these cookies to be super fluffy and cake-like, you can accidentally add another 1/2 tsp of baking soda like I did.
2) Don't add 1TBSP of vanilla like the recipe calls for; it's probably a misprint. I added 1-2 tsp.
3. You can use dark chocolate chips; like Ghirardelli 60% cacao...more antioxidants, better flavor.
4. Share one with your kiddo and think "we're eating vegetables. these cookies are healthy."
