When the farmers' markets start in earnest in April and May, Minnesotans' pent-up desire for fresh, flavorful produce is answered immediately by rhubarb, spring onions, and tender lettuces. Within just a few weeks, the bounty has expanded exponentially and, before too long, those connected to a crop share or whose market basket is perhaps a bit too accommodating may be wondering:
Just what should I do with fennel? And how can I possibly consume all of this spinach?
Tricia Cornell comes to the rescue in Eat More Vegetables, 135 recipes arranged seasonally to correspond with our northern plenty, from a refreshing cold beet soup in the heat of summer to a healthy and comforting butternut squash chili for cold winter nights; from zucchini fritters any kid will love to an adults-only melon-vodka slushie. But this book brings value far beyond creative recipes. Introductions to the many vegetables, fruits, and herbs stacked on farmers' tables and in the grocery store help home cooks see delicious possibilities in kale, cabbage, or tomatoes, while tips for preparation and storage encourage us to make the most of our growing season and extend the goods through fall and into winter, until the markets open up once again.

Of all the civilizations the Spanish explorers found in the New World, the one that loved the native chile peppers the most was the Aztecs. Theirs was a culture in which the hot and tasty treats were revered almost as much as sex. Over the centuries, Aztec cookery grew and spread to become the basis for the Mexican food of today, and many Aztec dishes have lasted through the years basically unchanged. Usually, these foods were roasted, boiled, or cooked in sauces, in a legacy that Dave DeWitt, the noted Pope of Peppers, has compiled into this wonderful addition to his scintillating Pepper Pantry series.
The ubiquitous apple: a mainstay of fruit bowls and bag lunches, and in Minnesota, a point of pride.

Snappy and sweet eaten out of hand, tender and flavorful when roasted or baked, apples bring plenty to the table.
There's no better guide to this apple abundance than Joan Donatelle, whose fondness for the fruit goes beyond the standard slices-and-brie or apple crisp. Astonishing Apples opens with imaginative dishes like Smoked Trout Tartlettes and Apple Bruschetta, followed by Cheddar Apple Cornbread and Apple Cabbage Slaw. Apples find their way to the center of the plate in Savory Apple Foccacia and Ginger Curry Apple Turkey Bake. Tempt your sweet tooth with Apple Almond Biscotti and Apple Panna Cotta, and explore modern twists on the usual suspects, from apple butter to applesauce to fresh cider. With this cookbook in your arsenal, eating "an apple a day" has never been easier--or more delicious.

Kale is considered one of the world's most powerful superfoods for very good reasons. It's packed with antioxidants, which help neutralize free radicals in the body, which, in turn, helps to prevent many kinds of cancer.

Furthermore, kale is high in iron and has a good dose of omega-3 fatty acids, which work as an anti-inflammatory and help fight arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune disorders. And to top all that off, author Julia Mueller proves that it can be delicious.
