Farmhouse Weekends is the cookbook for anyone who daydreams of country life. Prepare meals and experiences to enjoy in the easy companionship of family and friends—everything you need to create the perfect farmhouse weekend, no matter where you live, is found within these pages. Each chapter provides recipes inspired by author Melissa Bahen’s weekend jaunts in the country: apple cider donuts and white bean chili after a day of picking fresh apples in the fall; buttery cobbler full of ripe, summer berries after a trip to the farmers’ market; hot, flaky biscuits slathered with butter and homemade strawberry freezer jam to start out a spring day. You’ll find brunch, dinner, and dessert recipes for spring, summer, autumn, and winter: 65 recipes to entertain and enjoy good company all year round.
