One of the best ways to convey the message, €œI€™m thinking of you,€ or €œI care,€ is to show up with delicious, homemade food.

Forget about the same old boring pasta salad or tuna casserole when you need to bring dinner to exhausted new parents, care for a friend recovering from surgery, or contribute to a business breakfast. Sara Quessenberry and Suzanne Schlosberg offer 125 great new recipes inside The Good Neighbor Cookbook. Uniquely divided by occasion rather than food category, chapters include: Get Well Soon, Bringing Home Baby, Welcome to the Neighborhood, Novel Ideas for Book Club, Block Parties, Barbeques and Family Get-Togethers, and Meet and Eat.

In addition to flavorful and health-conscious recipes, The Good Neighbor Cookbook also includes tips for preparing food ahead of time or freezing dishes for later. With recipes such as Raspberry Rhubarb Crumble Pie; Smoky Corn Chowder; Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Lasagna; Potato Salad with Fennel, Lemon, and Herbs; Earl Grey and Orange Tea Cookies; Banana and Hazelnut Muffins; and Soy and Ginger Grilled Chicken Drumsticks, your friends, neighbors, and book club members will realize they have never had it so good. More than just a potluck cookbook, The Good Neighbor Cookbook is timely and relevant for today's "potluck economy."
