I‘ve decided to re-post about this delightful cookbook. I’ve looked through it thoroughly and have chosen to try Dandelion Green & Caramelized Onion Pizza, Lamb Stew with peas and Potatoes and Spring Colcannon.

Just look at this beautiful book! Shannon over at Nourishing Days has put together what is destined to become one of my favorite cookbooks. And I’m not easily impressed by cook books. This one is called Simple Food {for spring} Cookbook.

Isn’t it a pretty book? And the recipes sound delicious. I think what I like most about this cookbook is that the author has used fresh, easily obtained ingredients to make healthy and delicious dishes.
