I'm a big fan of the cookbooks published by Moosewood Restaurant. The recipes in Moosewood cookbooks are mostly vegetarian, but I prefer to think of them as very good resources for what to do with the abundance of fall produce from the garden. When you've got so many tomatoes, green beans, or peppers that you just don't know what to do, Moosewood probably has an answer.
Moosewood's best cookbook is Simple Suppers: Fresh Ideas for the Weeknight Table. This compendium of 122 vegetarian recipes covers the entire territory of the dinner table; there are pasta recipes, ideas for sandwiches, hot dishes, stir-fries, salads, and even deserts. Since buying the book at a flea market in Vicksburg, MS, last spring, I've tried a half dozen of its recipes and gotten good marks on them all.
One of the best recipes in the book was for an Indian potato salad with cilantro omelet that was spicy, robust, and sufficiently satisfying that the absence of an accompanying meat dish wasn't noticed. Another recipe was for a southwestern black bean salad--accompanied by corn chips and homemade salsa--that I tried out at a dinner party to much applause. Best of all, these recipes are truly simple to make, require only readily available ingredients, and don't cost much to put together.
Moosewood restaurant is owned by a collective of foodies who've operated the Upstate New York restaurant since the early 70s' and write and publish the cookbooks. They've produced 10 cookbooks over the years, beginning with New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant . I've used recipes from all 10, and they've all worked out pretty well. I recommend them.
