If you love eating and entertaining with nothing but the freshest foods, this is the book for you. In Amen to the Garden, Kim shares her love of family, gardening and cooking through her vibrant photography and innovative recipes. She shows you how to use fresh foods to create “get the party started” dips, wonderful salads, “out of this world” dinner favorites, and so much more! Kim shares her “waste not, want not” philosophy in the garden and in creating a wide range of spectacular foods, juicing and making hot sauce! You’ll even learn how to preserve herbs, greens, peppers, and seeds to save for next year’s garden. Amen to the Garden will inspire you to wiz up a smoothie, head outdoors to plant some seeds and pick some dandelions then get busy in the kitchen whipping up fresh delectable dishes to delight your family and friends. So, come have a seat at the table! Amen to that!
