Summary

Just in time for the holidays! Joan Reeves, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Contemporary Romance, shares 52 Cake Recipes and more than a dozen basic and specialty Frosting Recipes collected from 3 generations of home bakers. 
 
In a world where you can get cake at a fast food restaurant for a relatively cheap price, why bake one? There are many reasons beginning with the incredible taste of a home-baked cake and ending with the Zen of cake baking. 
 
There is something immensely satisfying about coming home after a really bad day at work and making a cake. The cake preparation process of combining ingredients, creaming, blending, and mixing is very Zen-like. In about an hour you can go from no cake to cake on the table, and your mood can go from frazzled to satisfied. 
 
The 52 cake recipes in this book are family recipes collected through the years by Joan. The recipes are from her grandmother, her mother, friends, and other family members. Some recipes are complex and time-intensive. Other recipes use the convenience of cake mixes, and others are dump cakes that offer time-saving convenience and good taste. Try a different cake every week so you can also claim that Friday Is Cake Day!

    Hidden behind rust-coloured frontage in the bustling heart of London's Soho, Spuntino is the epitome of New York's vibrant restaurant scene. After bringing the bàcari of Venice to the backstreets of the British capital at his critically acclaimed restaurant POLPO, Russell Norman scoured the scruffiest and quirkiest boroughs of the Big Apple to find authentic inspiration for an urban, machine-age diner. Since its smash-hit opening in 2011, the restaurant has delivered big bold flavours with a dose of swagger to the crowds who flock to its pewter-topped bar.  
     
    Spuntino will take you on culinary adventure from London to New York and back, bringing the best of American cuisine to your kitchen. The 120 recipes include zingy salads, juicy sliders, oozing pizzette, boozy desserts and prohibition-era cocktails. You'll get a glimpse of New York foodie heaven as Russell maps out his walks through the city's cultural hubs and quirky neighbourhoods such as East Village and Williamsburg, discovering family-run delis, brasseries, street traders, sweet shops and liquor bars.  
     
    With radiant photography by Jenny Zarins capturing New York's visceral grittiness, Spuntino pays homage to the energy, dynamism and extraordinary cuisine that the world's greatest melting pot has inspired.

    Far too many women struggle to get pregnant and conceive a child naturally. This generally drives most people to visit a doctor or specialist to find out why they have so much difficulty conceiving and giving birth to healthy, happy babies. In most cases, they're given a diagnosis of infertility. Unfortunately, there are many different reasons for infertility, so this doesn't always help. It's known that ovarian cysts, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis can affect your fertility rate, as can a low sperm count in men. Some people are affected by other hormonal issues or more complicated problems, such as blocked or obstructed fallopian tubes. Even with all the advances made by medical science, there still remains a possibility that doctors simply can't find a cause for some peoples' infertility problems. Yet, what most people forget is that traditional, natural remedies often have a far greater success rate than expensive, often painful medical treatments. Despite a higher success rate, many women still choose to ignore natural treatments and solutions that really could prepare their bodies to conceive naturally, even after being told that they are infertile by a medical specialist. What's more, many of the medical treatments, surgeries and pharmaceutical drugs for infertility don't actually treat the base cause of the problem. Instead, they treat the symptom and attempt to remove it that way. This can sometimes cause more problems than you started with. This Book will look at some reasons for infertility and how using a natural, holistic approach to reversing your infertility problems can greatly improve your chances of conceiving a child of your own without surgery and without drug

    Hugh's River Cottage Veg Every Day! became the UK's best-selling vegetable cookbook, persuading us through sheer temptation to make vegetables the mainstay of our daily cooking. In this much-anticipated follow-up, Hugh delivers more irresistible recipes, and this time, takes things one step further. Fuelled by his passionate belief that plant foods should be the dominant force in our kitchens, Hugh has put cheese, butter, cream, eggs, and refined flour and sugar firmly to one side. Instead, he uses veg, fruit, wholegrains, nuts, seeds, spices and cold-pressed oils to explore the length and breadth of what can be achieved with natural, unprocessed plant foods. River Cottage Much More Veg! makes it clear that unadulterated ingredients are the very best building blocks for delicious and healthy meals.  
     
    In typical Hugh style, the recipes are easy, utterly foolproof and delicious. All but a handful are gluten-free, and at least half the dishes require 20 minutes (or less) hands-on work time. With recipes such as Roast squash and chickpeas with spicy apricot sauce, Blackened cauliflower with pecans and tahini, Spiced beetroot, radicchio and orange traybake, Celeriac and seaweed miso broth, Seared summer cabbage with rosemary, chilli and capers, and Baked celery agrodolce, River Cottage Much More Veg! demonstrates how easy it is to make versatile, plentiful and delicious vegetables the bedrock of your diet.
