I recently read Food Gift Recipes From Nature's Bounty by Lilly Robbins Brock; which is a cookbook using produce from your garden and turning it into a gift for others. Around this time of year, the season of giving. I am always baking to give to neighbors, family, and friends. I finished reading this book and starting my review as I am baking for the holidays. I enjoy having it as another resource to use for gift giving.

The book covers many different items including breads, seasonings, butters, jams, sauces and many more. The book is organized in a way that it is easy to find recipes to your liking with a large variety. The author also includes many pictures throughout the book of the recipes. I like to be able to see what I am making and how it should look if all goes well. The recipes are fairly easy and use common ingredients which makes it very appealing to try the recipes without having to spend a lot of money on uncommon ingredients.

Every year I plant a garden and I always seem to have more zucchini than one person can handle. I give some away, eat some, along with freeze or can some. I am so excited to try some of the recipes in this book like: Savory Cornbread Zucchini & Cheddar Cheese Muffins, Herbal Croutons, and Chive and Parsley Butter. There are many more I will try; but these are just the first on my list.

Like the author of this book I have some family and friends that return their jars and get a new full jar. It brings so much joy to the one receiving the goods, as well as the one giving the goods. Every time I ask my sister what she would like for a holiday or a payback she always replies, "Some more of your canned goodies."

The only negative I have about the book is that I prefer to have all the canning instructions together in one recipe. Instead of having to refer to another book or resource. I know that canning times vary depending on location but I prefer to have a starting time then adjusting for my altitude.

I give the book a 4 out of 4 stars. I will be using it as I continue to can and share my bounty with others in the years to come. I really enjoyed reading a book about the hobbies that I enjoy. I would recommend this book to anyone who plants a garden, loves giving, or likes to cook. One small warning this book will leave you hungry.
