    Seasonal Recipes at their Freshest--and Food for Body and Soul!

    Haven't tried all of the recipes--but already have a few favorites. My entire family loves a Complete Spring Salad (p73) with asparagus, potatoes (sliced), hard-boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes and olives (I prefer green--but my newphews love black olives)--accompanied by a rosemary-scented vinagrette. Not only is it wonderful with these fresh ingredients, but it is pleasing to the eye when you serve it in a glass (or milkglass) bowl!
    Also the salsa--garden fresh ingredients....sure to please everyone! Recipes are seasonal with cheery introductions, feasts of saints and other celebrations, and insights into the monastic life!
    A recipe for a 4-course Christmas dinner tops off a delightful book--complete with a sampling of recipes for desserts, fruits, soups and breads sure to send you to the garden, the farmers' market and your kitchen.
    This hardcover book makes a thoughtful and inspiring gift complete with the personal thoughts of Brother Victor-Antoine--who has been featured on Food Network and reviewed by Gourmet magazine. Enjoy!

    Devotional cooking: seeing God in the mundane and not so mundane things of our daily lives! Love it!

    Fun book -- adding devotion to the art and joy of cooking. This gives me new reasons to cook with a great variety of vegetables too.
