Each of 12 chapters focuses on a month of the year and a specific honey varietal (such as tupelo, orange blossom, sourwood or sage) and offers a complete seasonal menu showcasing that varietal. In November, you might choose cranberry honey and serve a meal of Candy Roaster Squash Soup, Endive with Pomegranate Seeds and Shaved Parmesan, Turkey Roulade in Puffed Pastry with Cranberry Chutney, Baked Acorn Squash, Elsie's Cranberry Pie, and Hot Mulled Cider. Or in April, you might choose avocado honey and serve Guacamole, Borscht with Crème Fraîche, Avocado and Mango Salad, Rack of Lamb with a Coffee and Honey Crust, Glazed Baby Carrots, Rhubarb Cream, and Southern Iced Tea.

Brassicas showcases 80 recipes for the most popular of the world's healthiest vegetables-kale, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, leafy greens and more-tailored to accommodate special diets such as gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan.
For a long time, brassicas had a mixed reputation. While a small group of people staunchly adored them, most Americans were not as fond of the vegetables formerly known as "cruciferous" (who doesn't remember a plate of stinky boiled cabbage or President Bush's condemnation of broccoli?). But in recent years, a transformation has occurred. Kale has taken the world by storm and there's hardly a restaurant left that doesn't have Brussels sprouts on the menu. The rising popularity of brassicas is not only due to their extraordinary health benefits and "superfood" status, but also the realization that they can taste delicious when properly prepared. Brassicas shows home cooks how to bring out the flavors of these vegetables without death-by-boiling or burial under a blanket of cheese. When roasted, brassicas reveal an inherent sweetness. In a fresh salad or sauté, they add a delightful peppery punch. Celebrating natural flavors rather than masking them, Brassicas both inspires cooks as well as arms them with appetizing new ways to increase their vegetable consumption.

A traditional foods diet celebrates unrefined, whole and natural foods while avoiding modern, refined ones; it also seeks to prepare them in the same manner as our ancestors, before the industrialization of food. The traditional foods diet, based on the findings of Dr. Weston A. Price's anthropological data from the 1930s, suggests that cultures who subsist on native, unrefined, traditionally prepared foods enjoy better health (with lower rates of infertility, heart disease, diabetes and autoimmune disease) than those who consume a diet of processed foods. This cookbook offers a beautifully illustrated treatment of this nutrient-dense cooking style, with wholesome, time-tested recipes, including restorative bone broths, revitalizing kombuchas and tonics, and hearty and economical bean and lentil dishes. Contrary to nearly all of today's trendy diets, the traditional foods diet is not a restrictive eating style--it focuses on eating diversely and seasonally. It is more inclusive than the paleo diet and shares the environmental and ethical principles of the farm-to-table movement. Practical sidebars include tutorials on infusing honey, making homemade almond flour, preparing a sourdough starter, and rendering poultry fat. Beyond recipes, The Nourished Kitchen also addresses the larger issues of how modern convenience food bypasses traditional culinary wisdom and the critical importance of how food is sourced and prepared for optimal nutrition.

When Kyra Bussanich realized she had to go gluten-free, she mourned the toasty morning muffins, moist birthday cakes, and fruity crumbles she thought she'd have to give up. Attending pastry school during the day, she used trial and error to re-create her favorite treats--sans gluten--at night. Word-of-mouth spread about her scrumptious confections, and soon Bussanich opened her very own Portland, Ore., bakery, Crave Bake Shop. When she competed against "regular" bakers on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars--and won!--she proved that gluten-free can taste just as good as the original. With delicious flavor combinations and unique recipes like Cherry White Chocolate Scones, Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes, and Mexican Chocolate Baked Alaska, this collection of 50 foolproof recipes invites home cooks to whip up sweet treats that everyone at the birthday party, brunch or potluck can enjoy.

Food: We can't live without it, yet its costs are rising and consuming more of the family budget. In addition, health concerns about the use of pesticides, genetically modified foods, and potential soil mineral depletion in the food supply inspire more people to want to grow their own vegetables. Many of them live in cities with only small yard spaces.
This book presents new methods devised and tested by author Margaret Park to maximize food production from a small yard. By tightly spacing plants in deep, fertile soil, training plants vertically, and harvesting year-round -- with the help of the inexpensive, portable greenhouse one can build from this book -- a great proportion of a family's vegetable needs can be grown at home -- even in the space it takes to park a car.
Park has devised and tested a great growing system. Even if people have more space, it doesn't make sense to use more space. Gardeners won't necessarily produce more vegetables, but more space does mean more area to cultivate, weed and water, and less space for other backyard uses. Soil fertility is more important than additional space. The system of composting introduced in the book requires an Effective Microorganisms (EM) medium (mostly wheat bran inoculated with beneficial microorganisms) and two buckets, one for collecting kitchen waste and one for further fermentation. The microorganisms not only feed the plants, they also clean up the soil.
