With nine mouths to feed on a daily basis, Alabama chef Stacy Lyn Harris keeps it simple, but doesn’t skimp on elegance. Her seven kids enjoy homegrown food, prepared beautifully and sustainably thanks to a few chickens in the back, a year-round kitchen garden, milk from a dairy farmer just outside of town, and locally-sourced free-range meats.

Always served up in Stacy Lyn’s rustic-refined style, her dishes are classic Old South, but with a fresh, healthy, beautiful twist. Culled from her family’s farmstead near Montgomery, Alabama, Stacy Lyn’s Harvest Cookbook  offers recipes and tips for a simpler, better way of life through growing, harvesting and cooking from nature’s bounty.

Featuring full-color photos, Stacy Lyn’s Harvest Cookbook includes more than 100 field- and farm-to-table recipes that meet her three-part criteria: family friendly (easy, with simple ingredients), fresh, and tasty.

For city dwellers or anyone who feels Stacy Lyn’s way of life is out of reach, 15 “how to” articles sprinkled throughout the book offer steps for cooking and eating sustainably in any setting—including container gardening, saving seeds, preserving, foraging, composting and more.
