The majority of the poems incorporated in this book of poetry have been inspired through my association with the former base for poets from the Philadelphia and New Jersey area known as “Poetry in the Park.” This venue was located inside of Cooper river Park in New Jersey. The group met twice a month and shared poetic ideas, we were like a family, exchanging ideas and encouraging each other as brothers and sisters. Our ring leader was Brother Daoud Bey who was Mr. everything, doing anything that need to be done from MC, keeping things in order, providing music, encouragement, food for thought. And a big kind heart.! Brother Bey was the right hand of Sandra Turner Barnes, Executive Director of Camden County Cultural Heritage Commission. She worked tirelessly to maintain Poetry in The Park for 10 years at the aforementioned location. I was a part of seven of those years at my home away from home. We have found another location in a larger better venue, located in the City of Camden, New Jersey a part of The IDEA Center at the Susquehanna Bank Center.

A powerful, haunting memoir about one woman’s childhood of abuse and her harrowing decision to leave it all behind that redefines our understanding of estrangement and the ability to triumph over adversity. To outsiders, Jessica Berger Gross’s childhood—growing up in a “nice” Jewish family in middle class Long Island—seemed as wholesomely American as any other. But behind closed doors, Jessica suffered years of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her father, whose mood would veer unexpectedly from loving to violent. At the age of twenty-eight, still reeling from the trauma but emotionally dependent on her dysfunctional family, Jessica made the anguished decision to cut ties with them entirely. Years later, living in Maine with a loving husband and young son, having finally found happiness, Jessica is convinced the decision saved her life. In her powerful memoir reminiscent of Jeannette Walls’s bestseller The Glass Castle, Jessica breaks through common social taboos and bravely recounts the painful, self-defeating ways in which she internalized her abusive childhood, how she came to the monumental decision to break free from her family, and how she endured the difficult road that followed. Ultimately, by extracting herself from the damaging patterns and relationships of the past, Jessica has managed to carve an inspiring path to happiness—one she has created on her own terms. Her story, told here in a careful, unflinching, and forthright way, completely reframes how we think about family and the past.

This book is the most unusual you will ever read in life. It's about how we should love more, laugh more, and maybe cry less. It's a cookbook with some wonderful recipes for your family. There are two types of recipes in this book. Recipes for the natural man and the spiritual man. The recipes will change us, enhance us, advance us, and help us to see life from a different perspective should we choose to. There are times when we refuse to see and believe what's staring us in the face. This book is about living life to our fullest potential. It's about being able to enjoy the quality of live we deserve without being stressed, depressed, and bound. It's about being able to laugh and cry during the bad times as well as the good times. We have all been hurt, disappointed, or even abused by our family, friends and those we hold in high esteem. When that happens, we must learn to forgive and move on, seek and receive help from professionals sometimes, and those who can help us without judging us. Life may throw us a curve ball, but we must decide what to do with the ball when thrown. This book is about helping us to be better and to do better in the decisions we make and the life we choose to live. We all have fallen short in some way or another. The anecdotes you read will allow us to see ourselves and make an effort or decision to do better. Sometimes, we can read something that can change our lives forever versus someone coming out and telling us our faults and failures. Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy yourself as you embark upon reading Cooking, Laughing, and Crying in the Kitchen.
