Celebrate the transition of seasons by cooking up a storm. Martha Rose Shulman's new cookbook The Very Best of Recipes For Health ($35) features foods high in flavor, with a focus on Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Southeast Asian cuisines. Famous for her recipe series featured in the New York Times, everything I have made from this book, from halibut to lentils, has been a tasty success. Not only are these recipes easy to follow, each one also contains nutritional information, from calories to carbs. The photos are inspiring too.
