Featured Book: "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle"

This month’s featured book is “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” by Barbara Kingsolver.

you can find this awesome book on Amazon.com

It’s rare you will find me reading a romance novel, but give me a book about food, whether it be cooking food, eating food, growing food or the history of a food and I am one happy girl. This particular book is the perfect food lover’s book, “part memoir, part recipe collection, part gardeners manifesto, part call to action, and part education. It is a story about a family who vowed for one year to only buy food raised in their neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it.” It connects us to where our food comes from and why it is important, both to the health of ourselves and our families, the environment, and to future generations. A lovely story but also an important read, I would recommend this book to anyone who appreciates food and should warn my family to look for it under the Christmas tree this year.
