Heart of the Home: Notes From a Vineyard Kitchen by Susan Branch (Little, Brown: $17.95, 159 pp.). Not the most practical book ever published for those with vision problems but this is certainly one of the warmest, prettiest books to ever pass my way. A combination of handwritten recipes and intricate watercolor drawings plus charming quotes, it is most delightful. "Heart of the Home" would make a perfect gift for recipe book collectors since each page is reminiscent of those pretty country-style recipe cards that are handed down through generations.
