The Forest Feast: Simple Vegetarian Recipes from my Cabin in the Woods by Erin Gleeson, $20.83, available at Amazon.

Just a few years ago you could find Erin Gleeson amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday city life. But now, you'll find her nestled in a cabin in the California woods, enjoying the natural beauty of her surroundings.

It was this huge move that prompted her critically-acclaimed cookbook, The Forest Feast, a visual diary that focuses on creating photographic recipe illustrations that promote local and seasonal ingredients. As Gleeson puts it, her hope is "to inspire healthy recipe ideas anyone can make- dishes that are easy enough after a long day at work, yet impressive enough for a party."

Even better, her recipes only call for three to four ingredients, keeping grocery lists simple while also allowing for complex flavors. Most of the book's 100 wholly vegetarian recipes require a few steps to create -- like her fan favorite eggplant tacos and watermelon bruschetta -- and are accompanied by stunning watercolor illustrations and vibrant photographs.

Part cookbook, part art book, The Forest Feast will soon be a staple in your kitchen, as well as your coffee table.
