Harvest recipes are some of my favorites. If I've run out of homegrown produce, my local farmer's market is open Saturday and Sunday. Harvest recipes include fresh veggies and are usually very simple meals to prepare.

I've been working on the Real Food Cookbook for several months and I'm finally in the finishing stages. I couldn't complete my book with out Great-Grandma's 14 Karat Cake.
Why is this recipe so important? My Great Grandmother was the president of her Women's Club in the 70s in California. She helped put together a cookbook to raise money. The book was given to my grandmother and then to my mom. To this day my Mom still uses the cookbook even though it's in several pieces. The 14 Karat Cake has become famous in our family and is a staple for birthday parties and family gatherings.
What is Real Food? To me, real food means homemade. It's simple, healthy food with an occasional decadent dessert.
16.2 Million hungry children! With that in mind I've decided to donate a portion of all book sales to several non-profits. I'll include which non-profits in my official announcement next week.
*UPDATE: 10% of all pre-order sales will be donated to Feeding America and Feeding South Florida*
