Summary

If the correct rules of etiquette fail you, never fear for this handy guide will instruct you in the correct ladylike manner! This indispensable nineteenth century guidebook will entertain, educate and inspire in equal measure. What should you do if you notice a stranger’s dress is tucked up at the back? What are you meant to say if you are offered food you don’t like at a dinner party? And what ought you to wear if you’re invited to a ball? If these questions baffle you, fear not! For help is at hand in the form of The Ladies’ Book of Etiquette.   Florence Hartley’s insightful etiquette guide was first published in 1860, and yet her witty and useful advice on behaving like a lady often still rings true down the ages. You don’t need to live in the nineteenth century to agree with Hartley that it is rude to finish someone else’s jokes. Whatever the situation,  whether the reader would like to know how to be as ladylike as possible when seasick or the best colour schemes for bridesmaids’ dresses, this thorough and wide-ranging book will provide sensible and succinct guidance, as well as shed light into life in the nineteenth century. Did you know that apparently you could spot a lady who had laced her corset too tightly from the lack of circulation making her nose go red?!    Published alongside The Gentlemen’s Book of Etiquette, this is the perfect gift for that special someone in your life, or as a treat to yourself as you aspire to set step on the path towards becoming a lady!  Let every action, while it is finished in strict accordance with etiquette, be, at the same time, easy, as if dictated solely by the heart. To be truly polite, remember you must be polite at all times, and under all circumstances.

    Pressure cookers have been around for quite some time. In 1679, a French physicist and mathematician Denis Papin made the first version of the pressure cooker, (though he called it a steam digester at that time) with a large cast iron vessel and a lid that would fit tightly and then could be locked, completely sealing the cooker. In the earlier versions there was no safety valve and once during a demonstration of the pressure cooker it burst and that is how Papin came up with the safety valve. Over the years pressure cookers have evolved greatly and today we see modernized versions of the earlier pressure cooker, which are smaller in size and much safer to use. Due to an increased safety, they are highly popular amongst chefs.

    Cookie swaps are joyful. Cookie swaps are social. Cookie swaps are hip yet old-school, trendy yet traditional. Cookie swaps are creative, inexpensive, DIY, and a great way to entertain. Cookie swaps are baking meets Stitch ’n Bitch, with newspapers, magazines, and websites—including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Better Homes and Gardens, Real Simple, Family Fun, Southern Living, Kraft.com, and Ed Levine’s Serious Eats—all writing about the trend. Cookie Swap! captures all of this and more in an idea-packed, slightly sassy guide. On the one hand, it’s all about the swap: when to swap (Christmas, of course, and other holidays, but also birthdays, bridal showers, graduation parties, PTA meetings, and fund-raisers—or just at your next book club meeting). And how to swap—with a planner, cookie swap math guide (so everyone gets the same number of cookies), ideas for invitations, decorations, containers, and then, when the crumbs have settled, how to make a keepsake. On the other hand, it’s all about the cookies. Lauren Chattman is a former professional pastry chef and baking writer who’s put together a knockout collection of more than 60 delectable, easy-to-make, simple-to-sophisticated recipes covering every kind of cookie—from crowd-pleasing favorites like Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies and Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies to unexpected treats like Flaky Cardamom Palmiers and Green Tea Sandwich Cookies with Almond Cream. Finally, the book ends with a chapter of drink recipes—such as Iced Irish Coffee, Mini Strawberry Milk Shakes and Juicy Sangria—because not every cookie wants milk.

    In today’s day and age people are so busy that they cannot really invest so much of their time into the kitchen. But on the other hand, we also want to try some delicious recipes every now and then to show the whole family some love with the food, or sometimes we just want to fulfill the crave inside us. For the busy people who want to still be able to enjoy delicious recipes without investing too much time, here are 45 Yummy Pressure Cooker Recipes.  
    The nicest thing about these recipes is that they are not only time saving but also, you require a very little effort to create an authentic dish. It will taste just as good as a prolonged recipe would, but only works much faster. I mean who can really imagine having pot roast within the space of 2 hours in the traditional cooking?  
    Some people may find the pressure cooker challenging because they are not used to cooking on it, or they do not know how complicated the pressure releasing ritual is or some people are just afraid that the food may not be as healthy as it should be. I want to assure all of you that these pressure cooker recipes are very much hygienic and not at all risky for your health. In fact it retains more nutrients compared to the traditional recipes because it is cooked in a closed pot where the nutrients cannot really get vaporized.  
    As to thinking whether you can try different recipes on pressure cooker or not, well certainly you can, and below are the group in this book,  
    •    10 Pressure Cooker Chicken Recipes 
    •    10 Pressure Cooker Meat Recipes 
    •    10 Pressure Cooker Soup Recipes 
    •    9 Pressure Cooker Veggie Recipes 
    •    6 Pressure Cooker Sea-Food Recipes 
    Of course these are the basic mold, you can try as many recipes as you want with your pressure cooker, when it comes to cooking, never shy away to try something new.
