"Let's dispense with the usual old notions of preserving," Beth Dooley suggests, leading us into Mette Nielsen's kitchen, where old-world Danish traditions meld with the freshest ideas and latest techniques to fill the pantry with the best of the season, all year long. Because those seasons can prove especially challenging in the northern heartland, Nielsen's Nordic heritage is handy as she and Dooley show cooks, first-time and experienced canners alike, how to make the most of a short growing season. Their approach combines the brightness and bold flavors of the Nordic cuisines with an emphasis on the local, the practical, and the freshest ingredients to turn each season's produce into a bounty of condiments. From corn salsa to carrot lemon marmalade with ginger and cardamom, crispy pickled red onions to garlic scape pesto with lemon thyme, and caramel apple butter with lemongrass to puttanesca sauce to "Fit for a Queen Jam"--these recipes bring the best of the sweet and the savory to every menu. Low tech, simple, and fast, they eschew hot-water-bath methods in favor of chilling and freezing, keeping flavors and colors bold and bright; and they ease up on sugar to make way for the true savory sweetness of nature's finest food. Savory Sweet is not your grandmother's canning cookbook--but it is likely to be your grandchildren's.

An engaging and hilarious collection that encourages readers to tackle those strange, awkward, worrying, yet endlessly compelling passages of the Bible. The Bible is full of not-so-precious moments, from murder and mayhem, to sex and slavery. Now, an incredible cast of contributors tackles the parts of the Bible that most excite, frustrate, or comfort, like: What the heck is the book of Revelation really about? (The answer will surprise you.) How do we come to grips with the Bible's troubling (or seemingly troubling) passages about the role of women? Why did the artist of the oldest known picture of Jesus intentionally paint him with a wonky eye--and what does it tell us about beauty? DISQUIET TIME was written by and for Bible-loving Christians, agnostics, skeptics, none-of-the-aboves, and people who aren't afraid to dig deep spiritually, ask hard questions, and have some fun along the way.

Each section features five sample menus for a variety of fetes from the most casual to the most elaborate, including Early Spring Dinner, Game Night, Southern Housewarming, and Snow Day Lunch, along with special events like showers, anniversaries, and birthdays.

Praise for Baked Elements: “From the writers of my favorite baking books of all time, a must-own for any baking enthusiast.” —Zoe Deschanel “Lewis and Poliafito approach their recipes with enthusiasm and dedication.” —Boston Globe “It’s official. I’m a goner. I love this cookbook. . . . While many restaurant pastry chefs around the country are out there pushing the envelope and falling off the cutting edge adding savory ingredients to deconstructed molecular gastronomy masterpieces, Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito have delivered another collection of uniquely approachable and delicious baked creations to satisfy any craving.” —Austin Chronicle “Nobody, nobody has a better grasp on the kinds of recipes that make people happily gum up the pages of a book with cookie dough or retire their grandmother’s famous recipe for cinnamon rolls (because it didn’t include pumpkin) than the Baked guys. This book is full of the stuff of American bakery-case dreams.” —Deb Perelman, creator of Smitten Kitchen “Not a page goes by without some personal anecdote, tip, or bit of advice that makes every recipe feel personal, well-tested, and well-loved. The book itself is gorgeous, with drool-worthy photos and an elegant layout that makes finding old favorites easy and choosing new treats a breeze.” —Serious Eats

"Sweet and savory may be new to the palates of some, but Gwen's been mixing it up for years and has been delivering the goods long before agave and ginger had each other at hello." - Bruce Cohen, Academy Award Winning Producer_x000D_ _x000D_ A surprising and satisfying collection of over 80 recipes by Hollywood caterer and food writer Gwen Kenneally that tantalizes sweet and savory curiosities. Recipes include Strawberry Salsa, Jalapeno Cornbread, Peach Pecan Chicken, Sweet Potato Salad and Green Tea and Chocolate Truffles. The notion of sweet and savory isn't new - after all, a popular chocolate candy has been betrothed to peanut butter for years. And a century ago frugal cooks mixed up leftovers with whatever they found in their kitchens, often resulting in culinary discoveries such as learning that sauerkraut mixed in cake batter made a moister cake, with a savory edge. Now, like never before, the savory/sweet combo is taking the food world by storm. The saltier, the brinier, the sweeter, the stickier...the better. The culinary landscape has become a place of art, adventure and a bit of science with flavors taking on bold identities, mandating that alternating flavors complement each other. Gwen's high profile clientele expects her to keep up with trends as well as pave the way. She is known for blending contemporary creativity with family recipes, comfort foods and diversity in her menu planning. In this, her first cookbook, she shares recipes that are hits at Hollywood affairs, political fundraisers and family gatherings.

In her welcoming, friendly voice, Melissa takes you inside her life while providing the dishes that will become your go-to meals for your own busy days. Recipes include Crisp Roasted Chicken with Chickpeas, Lemons, and Carrots with Parsley Gremolata; Baked Apples with Fig and Cardamom Crumble; Honey-Roasted Carrot Salad with Arugula and Almonds; Quick-Braised Pork Chops with Spring Greens and Anchovies; Coconut Fudge Brownies-and much more.
