Mo Fo 15

If you like your cookbooks to come with lots of interesting bedtime reading as well as recipes (that's me with my hand up) then Get it Ripe and Ripe from around here, both by Jae Steele should be in your house. You may not agree with everything Jae says, but her arguments are compelling, interesting and (as far as I can tell) well researched. oh, and yummy (the recipes not the arguments!) all with minimal usage of processed sugar, wheat flour, as well as a preference for both local and organic produce.

I don't find the tone to be preachy, or judgemental, just putting the info out there and letting you do with it what you will, even if that be ignore it all. It may not be to you liking, but that's no reason not to borrow one, or both, from your local library and see what you think.

Get it Ripe is one of my favorite cookbooks, hands down. She's not preachy, everything she says is well-researched, and it is killing me not to go out today and buy Ripe from Around Here, even though there's a very good chance I'll get it for the Holidays.

I really really want BOTH of those cookbooks, and my library doesn't have either. Bummer.

Courtney, ask them to order them. My library will do that, sometimes.
