As we’re gearing up for a spring and summer of fresh veggies, we like to turn to our cookbook shelf for inspiration, and over the years, have come to realize that our favorite cookbooks are the ones that are organized by season! It makes dinner (and dessert) planning so easy when you go to the farmers’ market, pick up a pile of fruit and veg, and then open your cookbook to spring and see that you have the ingredients for a handful of recipes! Today we’re sharing the publications that we love, and they are all united by their seasonal organization.
We love Marisa, the creator of the blog Food in Jars. She’s a food writer and canning teacher, uh, hellllllo, dream job! Her books, Food in Jars and Preserving by the Pint, are both laid out by the season, making them great canning guides throughout the year.
From the Cook’s Garden is the perfect source for your evening dinner dilemma.
Rustic Fruit Desserts will inspire your desserts (and breakfasts, if you’re like us!) throughout the seasons.
Taproot is a seasonal quarterly that screams (or maybe gently sings) local authentic living and community connectivity. It is a beautiful publication from start to finish and as of one minute ago, I ordered my yearly subscription.
Planning a potluck? Pick up Handmade Gatherings: Recipes and Crafts for Seasonal Celebrations and Potluck Parties. It’s another goodie by Ashley English that offers up party ideas, arts and crafts and recipes that are meant to build community via collaboration.
Keep your container garden growing all year long with Continuous Container Gardens.
Do you have any favorites we didn’t mention? We would love some new leads!
