    “Mandatory for parents” this innovative cupcake cookbook will help with “having fun in the kitchen . . . and awakening the creative monster within us all.” (Andrew Zimmern, chef, author, and host of Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods) 
     
    Bake It in a Cupcake takes the cupcake craze to the next level, operating on the logical assumption that the only thing better than a delicious cupcake is one with a sweet or savory treat—mini pie, fruit, chocolate kiss, breakfast cereal, baklava, cheese, even egg—hidden inside it. As the saying goes, it’s what's on the inside that counts. 
     
    Based on Megan Seling's popular blog Bake it in a Cake (www.bakeitinacake.com), Bake It in a Cupcake includes 50 recipes—many accompanied by color photographs and step-by-step instructions so that even inexperienced bakers will find it easy to make these fun, eye-catching, and unique desserts. Recipes are organized into chapters by what's inside, whether that's another baked good, fruit, or your favorite candy. 
     
    Bakers of all ages and experience levels will enjoy making—and eating—Seling's delectable filled creations like Banana Pudding Pie Cupcakes with Butterscotch Frosting, Miniature Cherry Pie Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting and Mission Fig-Spiced Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting. 
     
    “Brimming with fun and decadent recipes . . . an essential volume for the adventurous baker.” —Jessie Oleson, author of CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life 
     
    “I've sampled several dozen of Megan's stuffed cupcakes—each a delicious work of art and a mind-boggling feat of engineering—and now it's your turn. Prepare to have your mind and your taste buds blown—along with any preconceived notions you may have had about what a cupcake can be.” —Dan Savage, author of Savage Love

    A history of coffee from the sixth century to Starbucks that’s “good to the last sentence” (Las Cruces Sun News).   One of Library Journal’s “Best Business Books”   This updated edition of The Coffee Book is jammed full of facts, figures, cartoons, and commentary covering coffee from its first use in Ethiopia in the sixth century to the rise of Starbucks and the emergence of Fair Trade coffee in the twenty-first. The book explores the process of cultivation, harvesting, and roasting from bean to cup; surveys the social history of café society from the first coffeehouses in Constantinople to beatnik havens in Berkeley and Greenwich Village; and tells the dramatic tale of high-stakes international trade and speculation for a product that can make or break entire national economies. It also examines the industry’s major players, revealing the damage that’s been done to farmers, laborers, and the environment by mass cultivation—and explores the growing “conscious coffee” market.   “Drawing on sources ranging from Molière and beatnik cartoonists to the Food and Agriculture Organization, the authors describe the beverage’s long and colorful rise to ubiquity.” —The Economist   “Most stimulating.” —The Baltimore Sun

    In a world in which poor nutrition has become the norm, diet-related illnesses continue to rise. Coffee shops and fast food restaurants dot every corner, mixing up sugary drinks and frying up the cheapest bits of meat, making dietary inflammation all too easy to access. While you may have already noticed that sluggish, icky feeling after finishing your order of extra-large fries, this non-nutrient dense food is causing more than just a brief period of gastrointestinal discomfort.  
       Nutritional diseases are defined as diseases or conditions that cause illness in humans, related to deficiencies or excesses in a person's diet (1). A few examples of these conditions are:  
    ●   Obesity.  
    ●   Heart disease.  
    ●   Cancer.  
    ●   Diabetes.  
       
    Many of these conditions can cause lifelong complications, lower quality of life and a shorter lifespan if not addressed and treated.  
    But did you know that, while what you eat can cause these issues, it can also fight these very problems? In this book, we will cover what exactly constitutes a healthy diet and how you can achieve the optimum balance of nutrients to improve your health, energy levels and overall quality of life. I will teach you exactly how to activate your body's defense systems, to keep you safe from nutrition diseases and so much more; all with just food!
