I may be bias because I enjoy Michael Symon`s cooking on the food network, but this is a well written book with several recipes from his restaurants, along with interesting sauce and pickling ideas to use as toppings. His Greek heritage makes the book lean toward a mix of mostly meat dishes of beef and lamb. There are a few fish and poultry dishes but not as many or diverse as other main stream cookbooks, as there are no dessert recipes either. One thing I did enjoy is every few pages there would be a page or two about his techniques of cooking which can be applied to other dishes you prepare either in the book or from another. I found this book to scratch the itch that others leave, giving you a real feeling of how to cook a dish rather then just instructions on a page like most cook books (ie: better homes and gardens...) And with overstocks discount on the cover price it makes it a great deal!

This is a terrific book that presents hard science and makes a clear and compelling case for how meditation and training the brain to focus its attention can make quantifiable changes in the brain and brain chemistry. It is easy reading that takes the time to tell the long story of how the understanding of the brain and what it can do has changed. Conventional wisdom was that the brain can't change for adults, but a series of experiments have proven that brain plasticity is a reality for adults - and important for overall health. The author brings her own credibility as the science editor for The Wall Street Journal to bear on this subject. The book also tracks the course of a series of discussions over time that scientists have had with the Dali Lama to explore the real-world benefits of meditation and the possibilities of real change. The Dali Lama's curiosity and interest in science was as critical to this exploration as was the scientists desire to quantify what actually happens, how it happens and how long any changes may last when the brain's miraculous neuro network is engaged.

Chef Jim is obviously a true pro and a very learned historian. He has done his homework, as his father and his father before him. You will see once you get into this marvelous cookbook. I am thrilled to be able to make economical, simple recipes that just scream comfort food. I look forward to his next book and his blog suggests he may be coming to a network. Once only hopes.

This book is among the best of the best. Kerry Vincent regularly appears on Food Network and the OK Sugar Art Show as a judge. Her work is something to aspire to - so flawless, elegant, and artistic. The book contains amazing color photos and instructions. Great for entertainment and training.

I LOVE the show Jon and Kate Plus 8... the book is even BETTER! Now, it's the Gosselins unleashed and unrestrained by their tv network, able to share their faith and struggles, life and blessings firsthand and openly. A WONDERFUL book that I couldn't put down. HIGHLY recommended!!!

Sky Zone, The Crittendon Files by Creston Mapes Be prepared for a wild ride, Sky Zone is jam packed with action and mystery that will keep you at the edge of your seat. I started reading this this book at lunch yesterday and did not put it down until I finished. Hubby did not appreciated not having supper because I was lost in a book but it was well worth it. The author Creston Mapes hits it out the ball park with this suspense, I give it 5 stars. If you enjoy Christian fiction with intrigue, suspense and action this is the book for you. The characters show faith while under pressure, stand up for what is right and step out as heroes. I loved this fantastic book. Sky zone is book three in The Critendon Files, but it can be read as a stand alone. If you have not read Fear Has a Name or Poison Town you have missed some great books. I want to give a high-five to the author Creston Mapes and publisher David C Cook for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. The Book Club Network Inc. provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for their, the authors and publishers generosity.

Surviving Henry Adventures in Loving a Canine Catastrophe by Erin Taylor Young I LOVED this book. Henry is a boxer with endless energy. It was refreshing to hear the antics of others peoples pets. I found the author Erin Taylor Young, to be quite funny and found myself laughing so hard I cried. In all Henrys antics he was still loveable, reminds me of a kid with ADHD. Always into something but never with a malice heart. Henry reminds me of some of the dogs and cats I have owned or fostered. I admire the way the author summed it up, I love this dog because, maybe this is the sum of countless choices. Every decisions Ive made to keep going, keep working, keep trying had added up to loving Henry with my actions, even when my feelings were anything but. Funny how the warmth of emotion caught up to my choices somewhere along the way. Like finding a rare gift in s beat up box. The author did a fantastic job of describing Henry with love and passion. I give Surviving Henry 5 stars and would loved to read more about him. I normally do not read much non-fiction but loved this one and would consider others by this author. I want to thank the author Erin Taylor Young and publisher Revell for bringing good clean funny Christian books like this one to readers like me. I would also like to thank The Book Club Network Inc. for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

The third in a trilogy picking up were the Blood books left off. I had hoped and expected that it have a little more Henry but it was mostly dealing with Tony. Would have liked to have seen more character development with henry but,,, oh well... Tanya Huff has an amazing sense of the macbre.. I would reccomnend this series to anyone who like the Bllod Ties series and Henry Fitzroy who has some of the best lines in network tv...ie.. I'm a Vampire, not a bllod hound.. for one... enjoy...Smoke and Mirrors is awesome... that is bk 2.

Here to Stay by Melissa Tagg Here to Stay is a great contemporary Christion fiction. Autumn Kingsley sets aside her dreams to run the family inn when all she has ever wanted was to see the world. The prodigal son, Blake Hunziker returns home after traveling the world over. Tired of running he comes home to put down roots. Autumn and Blakes families remind me of the Hatfields and McCoys but they put aside their families differences and team up to save the town by co coordinating the Christmas festival.

This novel is well thought out, the characters are well developed, full of wit and heartwarming romance that will keep you turning the pages.

I love Ellie Krieger but I was disappointed in how this book was presented and put together. I thought there would be more pictures, but the pictures that were included were blah looking and didn't make me want to prepare the dish anymore than it would to just see the printed recipe. I would be just as happy to get her recipes from the Food Network website, but thought it might be nice to have a printed book. If I'd known before hand what it would look like I would have passed. I've been happier with Ina Garten's and Giada's books.

Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson shares a piece of her life and experience in a very personable and encouraging way. She talks in detail about gymnastics, but also her crushes on boys, her self image and weight pressures, her time on Dancing with the Stars, her scary stalker, and the injury that nearly cost her her career. She shares many personal stories, thoughts, and poetry. This is really an inside scoop into her life, and I have to say: she has a winning personality. I love Shawn's honesty, vulnerability, and the cheerfulness of her writing. It's hard to read this and not become a fan. Since I haven't closely followed gymnastics, I searched Google and YouTube for Shawn as soon as I had started the book to see what the media was saying. Most of her press is overwhelmingly positive--and I can see why!--but Shawn's behind-the-scenes commentary completes and responds to her image in the media confidently and gracefully. I especially appreciated Shawn's vulnerability in discussing her struggle with weight gain after the Olympics. Regardless of where God takes her in the future, Shawn is an amazing young woman with an excellent story. I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Tyndale Blog Network.

Elusive Hope Book 2 of Escape to Paradise by MaryLu Tyndall This is my first book I have read by this author. It is Christian Historical Romance Fiction. Elusive Hope is set in the jungles of Brazil, in 1866. After the war a group of Americans start a new colony called New Hope . What they discover is so much more, they find love, friendship, community, faith, and face spiritual warfare. Hayden Gayle set out to find his father to get revenge for past sins. Magnolia Scott wants nothing more than to return to America to a life a privilege and servants to wait on her hand and foot. I enjoyed watching these two grow up as they faced a checkered past and learned beauty comes from within. It was interesting to see how they used one another to gain something for themselves only to learn what they thought they were seeking was not what they really wanted after all. Although it is a part of a series it can be read as a stand along. I had no problem following and have not read the first book Forsaken Dreams. I found the authors writing style to be realistic, believable and funny. I give this book four stars. I want to give a high-five to the author MaryLu Tyndall and publisher for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. The Book Club Network Inc. provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for their, the authors and publishers generosity.

What a great read this is. Excellent textbook style information with lots of great pictures and illustrations. This is geared mostly for the beginner and the processes of getting started. There is an invaluable reference section to help the begining smith network and locate those hard to find items. Text is written with a sharp wit, laced with blacksmith humor, and plenty of encouragement. Sims has done an excellent job of putting her passion on paper. The photographer is as much of an artist as the author, the photos are outstanding. All in all, one of the best books i've read on the subject.

Each novel is set in the west in the 1800s. All are seeking a new life and a new place to call home. Each author has put their spin on the perfect Christmas for any bride. I have discovered a few new authors to me. I could never pick the best story because they are all fantastic. I give The Westward Christmas Brides Collection 5 stars, great job ladies. If you enjoy historical fiction I highly recommend The Westward Christmas Brides Collection to you. A Christmas Prayer by Wanda E. Brunstetter April 15, 1850 three covered wagons set out to travel the wild west from Independence, Missouri to the land of opportunity, California. All travelers are strangers from different walks of life. Cynthia Cooper travels with her mother Mabel and fiancée Walter.

He is traveling with his adventurous sister Virginia. He wants to marry some day but wants to find gold first. She would love to teach again but needs to get away from the place she was jilted. As they make the long tedious journey the only thing that helps them survive is blind faith. This was a great story filled with faith. Another Christmas Story by Susan Page Davis Nineteen year old Beryl Jenner travels in a large train caravan through Nebraska Territory in 1856. When a tragic accident strikes, her and her young brother are stranded in Chiswell Rock at the trading post. The are left to survive by the kindness of strangers. James Lassen and his family do everything in their power to help the Jenners. They give and care for others like the Samaritan in the Bible. Not expecting anything in return but giving their all. This is a great story of compassion. I really enjoyed this story and found the author did an outstanding job. The Reluctant Runaway by Melanie Dobson Omaha, Nebraska December 1889 Lavinia Kathryn Starr is on the run from her evil step brother Patrick. As she boards a train for New York City Patrick closes in on her. She is on the run again this time on a train to parts unknown. Isaac Loritz sees Lavinia soon after he arrives in Aspen, Colorado, he offers his assistance but is turned down. Later when he finds her in his barn they form a friendship of sorts. As trust builds will their new friendship stands up to the pressure of money. This was a phenomenal story of trust and faith, with romance and a little trepidation. A Stagecoach Christmas by Cathy Liggett Western Missouri 1849 It wasnt a knight on a white horse that showed up to rescue the passengers of the stagecoach but a rancher looking to start over running away from Christmas. They were headed to Huxley to join family and friends for Christmas when the weather stops them in their tracks. Charlotte Crandall and her elderly mother Ms Vivian, barrister Benjamin Cottingham and his 6 year old granddaughter Melissa and driver Daniel Becker like Molly all had big plans. Molly OBrien was looking to start a new life only to find herself on a rowdy ride. Samuel Harden finds instant attraction to the spunky redheaded spitfire he rescues. The passengers of the stagecoach end up on a deserted ranch owned by Samuel and find their best Christmas yet. This was a great novel about grief turned to joy. I really related to the characters. Forging a Family by Vickie McDonough Advent, Texas 1890 Beth Ruskin, is a agent with the Childrens Aid Society, delivering kids to their new families. When a flash flood leaves her and her father stranded in Advent Texas, she helps her father care for patients. She first sets eye on the local blacksmith Cade Maddox when he brings a injured man to her father. Its love at first sight for Beth. Cade struggles with caring for his young daughter a overworked single man. He wonders if own Orphan Train daughter would be better off with a regular family. This is fantastic story of love and sacrifice that all parents face. I fell in love with the characters and I am sure you will too. Snow Song by Olivia Newport 1871 Belinda Michaels is heartbroken when Hayden Fairbanks does not show up for their engagement dinner. She is so hurt she hops a train to San Francisco only to run into him and a young child. When the train is snowed in all passengers and Belinda are left strained on the tracks. Can she find a way to trust Hayden again and give him another chance? Read this terrific book to find out. Olivia Newport is a new author to but I really enjoyed her story. Christmas, Maybe by Janet Spaeth For as long as Suzette Longmont can remember she has dreamed of the wild untamed nature of paradise, riding horseback with her hair blowing out behind her. But she was born into a life of privilege. She was expected to cook gourmet meals, keep a well decorated home for entertaining but she failed miserably. She jumps at the chance to help family in the Dakota Territory when relatives need help. Boring Harrison, the man that she was promised to marry in a arrangement marriage, decides to follow her there in fear of losing her forever. As she settles into a new routine she discovers there is more to Harrison than she ever thought. Can they make a relationship work? Read this faith filled novel to find out. The Christmas Bread by Jennifer Rogers Spinola September 1865 Juliet followed in her father footstep as a doctor. Jacob Pike a confederate war hero is on the same wagon train as Juliet. They face tragedy, sickness and are caught in the cross fires of a war that should be over. As they fight for their lives Juliets atrocity toward Jacob softens into something far more likeable, maybe even a fondness or love as the wagon train travels. This is a great story showing how nothing is impossible with God. By far this story will pull at your heartstrings like none of the others. I enjoyed my fist book by Jennifer Rogers Spinola very much. Christmas Bounty by MaryLu Tyndal Santa Barbara, California 1855 Caroline Moreau is a widowed mother of two, trying to keep her husbands dreams alive. But barely keeping Moreau Winery alive. As her and her children leave market they come across a public hanging in town square. They only thing that will save Pirate Dante Vega from hanging for his crimes is if a single lady will marry and make a decent man out of him. Caroline is in need of some one to protect her, the children and vineyard. Could Dante become the man of her dreams and save them? You will have to read this fantastic book to find out. Caroline is filled with a unbreakable faith that will inspire you. This was a glorious novel. I want to give a high-five to the authors Wanda E. Brunstetter, Susan Page Davis, Melanie Dobson, Cathy Liggett, Vickie McDonough, Olivia Newport, Janet Spaeth, Jennifer Rogers Spinola, and Mary Lu Tyndall and publisher Barbour for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith.
