MaryJane Butters' Book

MaryJane’s Ideabook Cookbook, Lifebook for the farmgirl in all of us, is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to get in touch with her inner “farmgirl”—even if she’s never set foot on a farm! Ms. Butters captures the spirit of a “farmgirl,” coining the term and making the farmgirl experience available to everyone. This book is part memoir, part personal notebook, and part how-to book, and it is overflowing with ideas on making organic foods more accessible or using old-fashioned household remedies for common ailments. Ms. Butters’ unyielding drive to support the organic movement and people along the way who have influenced her views give this piece a remarkable depth not often found in books of this nature. What’s more is this book reminds and encourages us connect with others farm-style—dinners, campouts, or simple recipe-swapping.
