Overview

One of the best ways to convey the message, “I’m thinking of you,†or “I care,†is to show up with delicious, homemade food.

Forget about the same old boring pasta salad or tuna casserole when you need to bring dinner to exhausted new parents, care for a friend recovering from surgery, or contribute to a business breakfast. Sara Quessenberry and Suzanne Schlosberg offer 125 great new recipes inside The Good Neighbor Cookbook. Uniquely divided by occasion rather than food category, chapters include: Get Well Soon, Bringing Home Baby, Welcome to the Neighborhood, Novel Ideas for Book Club, Block Parties, Barbeques and Family Get-Togethers, and Meet and Eat.

In addition to flavorful and health-conscious recipes, The Good Neighbor Cookbook also includes tips for preparing food ahead of time or freezing dishes for later. With recipes such as Raspberry Rhubarb Crumble Pie; Smoky Corn Chowder; Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Lasagna; Potato Salad with Fennel, Lemon, and Herbs; Earl Grey and Orange Tea Cookies; Banana and Hazelnut Muffins; and Soy and Ginger Grilled Chicken Drumsticks, your friends, neighbors, and book club members will realize they have never had it so good. More than just a potluck cookbook, The Good Neighbor Cookbook is timely and relevant for today's "potluck economy."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Quessenberry, former recipe developer and food stylist for Real Simple, and Schlosberg (coauthor, The Ultimate Diet Log) offer dishes to bring to a new mom, a sick friend, a book club meeting, and more. Recipes in the "Bringing Home Baby" chapter include nutritious, high-energy dishes for exhausted new parents, such as Cranberry Granola Bars and Hearty Minestrone Soup with Potato Gnocchi. "Get Well Soon," on the other hand, features recipes that freeze well and incorporate immune-boosting ingredients, like Turkey and Dill Meatloaf and Zucchini-Orange Bread. This distinctive approach that highlights the communality of cooking is highly recommended. [The authors have launched a companion blog with additional recipes, thegoodneighborcookbook.com.—Ed.]
