Staff Reviews

I am a healthy foodie cook and have admired Pamela and her work since I knew her back in the good old days at Grand View School where she headed up the beautiful vegetable garden.  Her cookbook is amazing.  For someone like me who loves salad, there are so many great recipes.  But more than that, she offers recipes for breakfast, snacks, soups, vegetables, mains, desserts - and they are all easy to do, delicious and healthy.  Pamela has a little something to say about every recipe that is interesting. There are suggested meal plans for each season and beautiful photos to go with the recipes.  Since the book is in paperback, it is not too expensive for anyone to have in their pantry.  Seriously, I want to try every single recipe in this book. Congratulations Pamela!  We have several copies in stock.  Where healthy and delicious meet!
