Celebrate small pleasures with former Chicago Tribune writer and The Feast Nearby author, Robin Mather. In her book of essays and recipes, Mather recounts her year-long journey in local eating after losing both her job and her marriage in 2009.

Moving to a cottage in her native Michigan, Mather vowed to eat three home-cooked, seasonal, and local meals a day — all on $40 a week.

The book starts with spring, a fitting season for Mather’s new beginning, and features seasonal recipes like asparagus bread pudding and sweet-biscuit strawberry shortcake. As spring gives way to summer, and then fall, Mather teaches you how to make yogurt, can corn and dehydrate carrots. This no-nonsense book provides easy tips for aspiring locavores, and shows how a few small changes in your eating habits can affect a whole community.

    I visit my local greenmarket during the week, to view all of the colorful, fresh produce. I often, love eating the seasonal berries and fruits that are offered at the market. My favorite is the asian pear and fresh raspberries for a warm, comforting pie! I love to cook and my greenmarket helps with the fresh ingredients! Thank you for this giveaway!
