Good garden cookbook?

Tupelo, MS

I got into gardening a couple years ago but mainly make salads or eat raw veggies from garden. I am looking for a simple garden cookbook this year. Simple easy recipes....
mainly herbs and veggies.

Look at this one. http://www.amazon.com/Jamie-Home-Cook-Your-Good/dp/1401322425 I don't own it but he is one of the best chefs I've ever seen in action. If you don't know of him Google and watch some of his You Tube posts. His down to earth approach went plain earthy a number of years ago. He now represents a kitchen garden to table philosophy. He appears on his self produced shows every few years and then disappears to write, lecture and teach. He is very into fixing the food crisis in school systems here and abroad.

I like to look at Half.com prices on used. I've never been disappointed with the quality of what's shipped.

Georgeann Brennan has an excellent cookbook called "Potager: Fresh Garden Cooking in the French Style"
http://www.amazon.com/Potager-Fresh-Garden-Cooking-French/dp/0811830411/ref=sr_1_sc_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1361191417&sr=1-3-spell&keywords=Georgeanne+Brenna that I own and that's quite inspirational. The reviews on the Jamie Oliver book are rather mixed and many talk about the need for an unusually extensive home garden to make his recipes. Brennan's are a lot simpler.

Rolling Prairie Cookbook: Over 130 Recipes Celebrating Fresh Produce by Nancy O'Connor

A local farmer's CSA asked her to write a cookbook for them that was based on produce so that their clients would know what to do with the items they were getting with their CSA subscription. The recipes are broken down into fruits and veggie categories. They are easy to make. We have a copy of the cookbook and use it. We also know the author as she is the director of education outreach at a local college town food co-op. Looks like you can get a used copy cheap from Amazon.

Some other places I like to go to find recipes are Organic Gardening Magazine web page and Eating Well web site.
