Discover the amazing versatility of the slow cooker! If you're a vegetarian who thought slow cookers were just for meat-eaters, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker will introduce you to the wonders of slow cooking. And if you're already a slow cooker enthusiast, here's a whole new array of healthy, delicious recipes for a favorite appliance. Slow cookers can be used for a lot more than just tough, inexpensive cuts of meat. They're perfect for vegetarian and healthy cooking because slow cooking is a foolproof way to make beans, grains, numerous vegetables, and much, much more. ''Until now most slow cooker cookbooks have been heavily meat oriented, leaning mightily on processed, preservative-heavy ingredients. Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker changes that. What a good idea! Here, every ingredient is fresh and real, and there's not a single pot roast with dehydrated onion soup to be found! Hooray for this cookbook's ease, innovation, delicious-sounding variety, bright ingredients, and fine results. Not just vegetarians, but anyone who needs cooking ease but doesn't want to sacrifice full flavor or health, will rejoice in this inviting book.'' - Crescent Dragonwagon, James Beard Award-winning author of Passionate Vegetarian

What if there was a year-round method of cooking that was low cost, powered by sunlight, non-polluting, and easy to do even in college dorms, apartment balconies and off-the-grid locations? There is: solar cooking. At the dawn of the 21st century, the need for sustainable cooking solutions is great, including fossil fuel-caused climate change, the end of cheap oil, and deforestation due to firewood collection. Whether you spend a couple of hours building a simple solar cooker out of cardboard and foil, or buy a sturdy commercial model, it is possible to do everything from simmering to blanching, poaching, steaming, sautéing, braising, baking, roasting, toasting, pan frying, grilling, food canning, medical sterilization, and even making ice (at night!). The Sunny Side of Cooking is a practical, easy-to-follow guide for both beginning and experienced solar cooks. Includes: --How to choose the right solar cooker for you based on your climate and lifestyle needs More than 100 vegetarian solar recipes and tips --How to adapt slow cooker recipes to a solar cooker How to adapt your favorite recipes to a solar cooker --How to safely can foods using USDA canning guidelines --How to create a year-round sustainable cooking system that combines the use of solar cookers, fireless cookers, pressure cookers, and biomass-fueled stoves and earth ovens “Beautifully detailed and informative. I highly recommend it both for beginners and experienced solar cooks who may pick up some useful variations and additional uses. Her recipes make one’s mouth water just reading them!” — Solar cooking pioneer Barbara Prosser Kerr, Co-inventor of the EcoCookerTM solar box cooker,Kerr-Cole Sustainable Living Center, Taylor, Arizona Copyright (c) 2007 128 pages. 8 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches.

In 1996, when Howard Lyman warned America on The Oprah Winfrey Show that Mad Cow Disease was coming to America, offended cattlemen sued him and Oprah both. Not only were Lyman and Oprah vindicated in court, but events have proved many of Lyman's predictions absolutely right. Mad Cow Disease has come to America, and Lyman argues persuasively in No More Bull! that the problem will only grow more deadly until our government deals with it seriously. In Mad Cowboy, Lyman, a fourth-generation Montana rancher turned vegetarian then vegan, told the story of his personal transformation after a spinal tumor, which he believes was caused by agricultural chemicals, nearly left him paralyzed. In No More Bull!, Lyman uses his humor, compassion, firsthand experience in agriculture, and command of the facts of health to argue that we might all profit by transforming our diets. He makes a powerful case that Alzheimer's is yet another disease linked to eating meat. And he explains that the steak at the heart of your dinner plate not only may destroy your own heart but actually offers no more nutritional value than a doughnut! If you've been confused by the competing claims of the Atkins Diet, the South Beach Diet, and other fad diets, No More Bull! is the book that will set you straight. Its pure, unvarnished truth is told with down-home common sense. Lyman's got a message for meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans -- and the message of No More Bull! is that we can all do better for ourselves and the planet.

This beautiful full-color treasury of stories about gift book-giving celebrates the enduring power of literature: stories of significant books people have received and what those books mean to them. THE GIFT OF A BOOK BECOMES PART OF THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE. Perhaps it came with a note as simple as “This made me think of you,” but it takes up residence in your heart and your home. The Books They Gave Me is a mixtape of stories behind books given and received. Some of the stories are poignant, some snarky, some romantic, some disastrous—but all are illuminating. Jen Adams collected nearly two hundred of the most provocative stories submitted to the tumblr blog TheBooksTheyGaveMe.com to capture the many ways books can change our lives and loves, revealing volumes about the relationships that inspired the gifts. These stories are, by turns, romantic, cynical, funny, dark, and hopeful. There’s the poorly thought out gift of Lolita from a thirty-year-old man to a teenage girl. There’s the couple who tried to read Ulysses together over the course of their long-distance relationship and never finished it. There’s the girl whose school library wouldn’t allow her to check out Fahrenheit 451, but who received it at Christmas with the note, “Little Sister: Read everything you can. Subvert Authority! Love always, your big brother.” These are stories of people falling in love, regretting mistakes, and finding hope. Together they constitute a love letter to the book as physical object and inspiration. Illustrated in full color with the jackets of beloved editions, The Books They Gave Me is, above all, an uplifting testament to the power of literature.

Vegan books have risen to a dominant sales position in the vegetarian category. One-dish meals are perennially popular on American tables, and books devoted to one-dish cooking perform well. Robin Robertson’s One-Dish Vegan is the first book at the intersection of these two powerful cookbook categories. Robin Robertson has built a publishing record of very successful titles in the vegetarian category. She is known for her creativity in the kitchen, for the breadth of enticing ingredients and flavors with which she works, and for her expertise in vegetarian nutrition—with a special focus lately on how vegans still can get enough protein in their diets. Typically, it takes two or three courses or dishes to make a well-rounded vegan meal. To meet this criterion in one dish takes the kind of ingenuity and expert knowledge that Robertson possesses. One-Dish Vegan contains more than 150 recipes. They range from the most popular categories of one-dish dining like stews, chilis, and casseroles (and other baked dishes) to a host of stovetop sautés and stir-fries as well as substantial salads and dishes that feature pasta as well as other noodles, such as Asian noodles. The recipes are at once homey and adventuresome, comforting and surprising. Above all, they demonstrate that it really is possible to get a complete vegan meal into one dish, full of good-for-you nutrients and bright, satisfying flavors.

Like that book, it is authoritative, encyclopedic, and complete.'' - VegNews Robin Robertson is a vegetarian-cooking instructor and former chef. She has written several books, including Vegan Planet, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, and The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook. She lives in Woodstock, Virginia, where she is a frequent contributor to magazines and newspapers.
