An apple a day keeps the doctor away... but not me!

For those of you who are always on the lookout for a good cookbook, I have some good news for you. I don't even love apples that much, but I love love LOVE this cookbook! Everyone else here at Little Shop does, too- Rob is in love with the grilled cheese, mustard and apple sandwich; Diane and her kids made the apple cider doughnuts; my husband and I are still drooling over the memory of the pork-and-apple pie with cheddar-sage crust.

The really cool thing about the book, aside from all the amazing recipes, is that they profile 59 varieties of apples. The pictures are absolutely beautiful, and each apple is described in terms of identification and, more importantly, culinary use. It classes them by firmness, sweetness and texture, and lets you know which kinds are best for which recipes. Even if you just use the profiles for reference so that you use the right apples in your own favorite recpes, this book would still be well worth getting.

Stop by the shop this weekend and check out this gorgeous, delicious book!
