This is a comprehensive cookbook that includes all kinds of squash and great recipes for appetizers, soups,salads, meals,sides, breads,muffins, cakes,cupcakes, cheesecakes,pies,desserts, bars, cookies,jam & jelly, pickles and condiments.
Shame on me for paying good money on this book! I should have investigated this author's other works before ordering this one. She seems to mass-produce single-themed recipe books. If the product page had mentioned "spiral-bound" when I ordered this book, I might have thought twice before hitting the gimme' button. Unfortunately, I was looking for new and different summer squash recipes because I had just planted my seeds and was getting excited about boatloads of zukes and yellow squash. It sounded like a great book to me: Summer and winter squash in one volume.
--The summer and winter squash recipes are mixed together. It is disconcerting to find a zucchini recipes next to a pumpkin recipe.
--I don't mind rotisserie chicken as an ingredient, but I don't like to see "cream of" soups, prepared spaghetti sauce, dried herbs (on garden-fresh veggies) in ingredient lists.
--Not all that many recipes actually "feature" summer squash: There might be the same quantity of mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, onions, etc. (Heaven forbid this author publish an onion-themed cookbook...) The squash main meals section feature chicken and sausages more than squash. There are Bratwurst Kebabs, Chicken Pasta Skillet, Baked Rice, Veggie Slaw, Chicken Zucchini Bake, Chicken Zucchini Lasagna, Open-face Turkey Burges, that use summer squash as a secondary ingredient. There are many, many more than these I just mentioned in which summer squash is just a token ingredient.
--There are no pictures.
--There are no tips or hints.
--There are no interesting stories or worthwhile introductory paragraphs.
--There are about 200 recipes, total.
--There are five appetizer recipes.
--There are 16 soup recipes; 11 of them winter squash.
--There are nine salad recipes.
--There are 40 "Meals".
--There are 51 "Sides".
--There are 76 baked recipes: Breads, muffins, cakes, pies and other desserts.
--Only 74 of the recipes deal with summer squash.
