  • THE JOY OF GLUTEN-FREE, SUGAR-FREE BAKING

    The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking offers amazing, easy-to-make recipes that revolutionize baking for wheat-sensitive, diabetic and low-carb/low-sugar cooks.

    After more than two decades of research into gluten-free baking, best-selling author and legendary bread-maker Peter Reinhart and his baking partner Denene Wallace deliver more than 80 world-class recipes for delicious breads, pastries, cookies, cakes and more in this delightful book.

    Carefully crafted for anyone who is gluten-sensitive, diabetic or needs to reduce carbs to prevent illness or lose weight, these forgiving recipes taste just as good as the original wheat versions-and are easier to bake than traditional breads. By using readily available or home-ground nut and seed flours and alternative and natural sweeteners as the foundation for their groundbreaking style of baking, Reinhart and Wallace avoid the carb-heavy starch products commonly found in gluten-free baking. Additionally, each recipe can easily be made vegan by following the dairy and egg substitution guidelines.

    Bakers of all skill levels will have no trouble creating incredibly flavorful baked goods, such as:

    • Toasting Bread, Banana Bread, Nutty Zucchini Bread, and many styles of pizza and focaccia
    • Cheddar Cheese and Pecan Crackers, Herb Crackers, Garlic Breadsticks, and pretzels
    • Blueberry-Hazelnut Muffins, Lemon and Poppy Seed Scones, and pancakes and waffles
    • Coconut-Pecan Cookies, Lemon Drop Cookies, Biscotti, and Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
    • Brownies and Blondies, Cinnamon-Raisin Coffee Cake, Pound Cake with Crumb Topping, and Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
    • Apple Crumble Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Berry Pie, and Vanilla, Chocolate, or Banana Cream Pie
    With Reinhart and Wallace's careful attention to ingredients and balancing of flavors, these delicious gluten-free baked goods with a glycemic load of nearly zero will satisfy anyone's craving for warm bread or decadent cake.

  • THE SPEEDY VEGETABLE GARDEN

    Typically, vegetable gardening is about the long view: Peas sown in spring aren't harvested until summer, and tomatoes started indoors in February can't be eaten until July. But it's not true for all plants. Some things can be planted and eaten in weeks, days, even hours.

    The Speedy Vegetable Garden highlights more than 50 quick crops, with complete information on how to sow, grow and harvest each plant. Sumptuous photography provides inspiration and a visual guide for when to harvest. In addition to instructions for growing, this essential guide also provides recipes that highlight each crop's unique flavor, such as chickpea-sprout hummus, stuffed tempura zucchini flowers, and a paella featuring calendula.

    Sprouted seeds are the fastest. Microgreens can be harvested in weeks: cilantro, 14 days after planting; arugula and fennel in 10 days. And a handful of vegetable varieties grow more quickly than their slower relatives, like dwarf French beans (60 days), cherry tomatoes (65 days), and early potatoes (75 days).

    The Speedy Vegetable Garden puts fresh, seed-to-table food at your fingertips, fast!

  • HEMP BOUND

    The stat sheet on hemp sounds almost too good to be true: Its fibers are among the planet's strongest, its seed oil the most nutritious, and its potential as an energy source vast and untapped. Its one downside? For nearly a century, it's been illegal to grow industrial cannabis in the United States … even though Betsy Ross wove the nation's first flag out of hemp fabric, Thomas Jefferson composed the Declaration of Independence on it, and colonists could pay their taxes with it. But as the prohibition on hemp's psychoactive cousin winds down, one of humanity's longest-utilized plants is about to be reincorporated into the American economy. Get ready for the newest billion-dollar industry.

    In Hemp Bound: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution, best-selling author Doug Fine embarks on a humorous yet rigorous journey to meet the men and women who are testing, researching and pioneering hemp's applications for the 21st century. From Denver, where Fine hitches a ride in a hemp-powered limo; to Asheville, N.C., where carbon-negative hempcrete-insulated houses are sparking a mini housing boom; to Manitoba, where he raps his knuckles on the hood of a hemp tractor; and finally to the fields of east Colorado, where practical farmers are looking toward hemp to restore their agricultural economy … Fine learns how eminently possible it is for this misunderstood plant to help us end dependence on fossil fuels, heal farm soils damaged after a century of growing monocultures, and bring even more taxable revenue into the economy than its smokable relative.

    Fine's journey will not only leave you wondering why we ever stopped cultivating this miracle crop, it will fire you up to sow a field of it for yourself, for the nation's economy, and for the planet.
