The two things about this cookbook that I'm not fond of: It's use of ingredients I don't use much anymore-- like biscuit mix, canned soup, and processed sugar. (They're not in every recipe of course.) The book also has quite a menagerie of ham, pork, shrimp, lobster, catfish, and crayfish recipes which I don't use (typically) and wasn't expecting in a "Straight from the Garden" recipe book.
But, in spite of a few surprises, the vegetable recipes look like they're going to be great and the one I've tried is a keeper (Cherry Rice Salad).
